I have an awful lot of MP3s on my Clip+, but have realized that I have put duplicates on there in different folders. My plan was to use a command prompt to get a list of all the files on the device, and then use a utility that shows me duplicate names and the files’ locations. I could then simply delete files from the Clip+.
The trouble is that the Clip+ is simply shown as a “Portable Device” in Windows Explorer (Windows 7 Home) - there is no way to assign a drive letter to it Which seems kind of odd, as it is, after all, plugged into one of my USB ports… I have used the dir command on all the drives assigned in My Computer as “Devices with Removable Storage”. One of them must be the port to which the Clip+ is attached, but they all say ‘Device is not ready’. Thus the Clip+ is not being identified in that way.
Is there any way at all to get a list of the files that are on the Clip+?
