Okay, I’ve had no real problems with my two-week-old Sansa Clip+ until just today.
When I plugged it in, it was as if my computer had a hard time reading it, and it’s only gotten worse. The clip, in MSC mode, takes up to 10 minutes to finally show up in My Computer(I’m on Windows 7) and even when it does, every time I try to open it or even so much as right-click on it, nothing shows up and Windows Explorer will even crash at times.
When I plug the device in, it reads “Reading” and then alternates rapidly between that and “Connected”. “Reading”, then “Connected”, then “Reading”, then “Connected”, etc.
When I plug it out, it reads “FAT is corrupted” and tells me to plug it into my PC and do something(that “something” is cut off by the lack of space for the text on the Sansa Clip+'s screen). I have no idea what’s going on or what to do to get it working like normal again. I’ve restarted my PC multiple times, I’ve formatted my Sansa Clip+ and I have the latest firmware(and even if I wanted to manually update it, I don’t have access to the clip’s root folder to do so)
I’m using a brand-new USB cord, I’ve tried this on several computers and it had the same outcome, and all of my USB ports are working perfectly with my other devices. Every time I try the Sansa on, it gives me the “FAT is corrupted” error and shuts back down.
Why is this happening to me? Is my clip busto?
