Cool that your Clip is working again.
Regarding your latest version question, I took a look at that main firmware upgrade page, and I too was initially confused. But then, (literally as I was posting to the upgrade poster to inquire) I found this at the very top of the firmware upgrade post:
- Turn on your Clip
- Select Settings from the main menu
- Select System Info
- Look at the Version #
Revision 1 = 1.XX.XX (example: 1.XX.XX)
Revision 2 = 2.XX.XX (example: 2.XX.XX)
If your Clip is Revision 1 proceed to Revision 1 instructions.
If your Clip is Revision 2 proceed to Revision 2 instructions.
My bold on the last two statements. So, you look at the revision on the Clip (as purchased, I would assume) under the Settings Info, and that will tell you what version is your latest upgrade. I also see that acccording to the main post the last “edit” is dated Feb 22, 2009, as you say, 8-9 mths ago. Since this is an admin poster I wonder if the edit history is maintained the same as with other posters?
Regardless, here, someone has tracked the revision history, and as of their post (dated 10-2008), they seem to believe what is posted on the forum upgrade page. A second (and better) confirmation I found is here, directly from Sandisk regarding the latest version.
You may wonder why someone with my knowledge and abilities has the time to be so thorough in this forum? The reason is because I have a graduate degree in Eng, but am without a job. I have a highly specialized background in scientific visualization and because I have gone off the standard path in my career (pursuing non-technical areas), the tech industry is very unforgiving. So, for too long I have had the time to be thorough and complete here in this forum (and to write software scripts, etc.). Boo, hoo, my sad tale… Really, just FYI. No sympathy required. I’ve made the choices I’ve made. But the tech industry is harsh in terms of putting you in a box, a least my experience, and not believing you can do anything else, or not open to letting you learn on the job. Sorry about this off-thread commentary; guess I’m a bit frustrated these days.
