File format for sansa clip

Hi there. I use the clip on a linux box and I am curious if the file format of the clip is defined anywhere. Specifically, I’d like to get access to the information that the sansa knows when I select a podcast (i.e. start where you left off), or even better, if a file was ever listened to. I would like to use that information to remove played files (podcasts in my case) from the player.

It’s fat32 and Linux has no problem with the fat file system. I don’t use Linux although I did run a dual boot system for a while. I have a Puppy Slacko bootable flash drive that I can use on systems having windows boot or virus problems.

I would suggest formatting the clip from the settings menu rather than from Linux just to be safe. You will of course need to set the clip to MSC mode.
