I have had a clip zip 4gb for some time now, like 3 months or more. i haven’t added any music since before the newest 1.01.20 firmware update. A few days back my clip zip froze at the end of a song, when it should have changed tracks. i had to hold the lock button to turn it off and back on again. this seemed to fix the issue, but it kept happening more and more. also, sometimes when the song would end, i would try to press the next track button to goto the next song, and it owuld just start cycling through many many songs in a row not playing any. then i realized that the player was not recognizing all the songs on the sd card. In fact, the card doesn’t work the same way twice in the player anymore. sometimes it will see only artist 0-9 and A-C, when i look at the card content not in the clipzip device the 10 gigs of music i have been using since i got the thing are still present. I had not even removed the card since i got it until today when i started troubleshooting.
I tried manually reinstalling the firmware, but i still get the same issues. it’s only usually recognizing about 3 gigs of the songs. as i stated, i have not changed any content recently aside from the automatic firmware update and the manual reinstall of the firmware i recently tried.
