I just purchased a Sansa Clip Zip to replace an old iPod Nano that started having battery issues.
This seemed like the right thing to do, as I got fed up of iTunes and Apple in general.
I purchased a Kingston microSD 32GB Class 10, so not exactly a cheap low-end card.
Unfortunately, I can not manage to make it work with the Clip Zip.
The card is fine, it works on my PC (Windows 7 x64) when I plug it in my card reader.
but it never worked properly on the Clip Zip.
I tried formatting it with Windows, the SD association tool, and the Clip Zip, and it still doesn’t work.
I tried plugging the Clip Zip with both USB modes, none worked.
It will either show 0MB in windows and in the player, or say that the card is not formatted (but then windows is unable to format it), or seldom show the 29.9GB capacity, let me copy some songs, but they never show up on the Clip Zip when I unplug it.
If I format the card with my card reader, and put some songs in it, it will work, but the songs will not show up in the Clip Zip, and then I get the issues I described above.
Anybody familiar with these problems?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
P.S.: Sandisk, if you’re reading this:
I would have bought the Fuze+, but a touchscreen based interface is unpractical.
Please make the Fuze Zip (or any future Fuze model) with physical buttons.
