My Clip has been working fine up until now.
Now it boots really really slow and takes forever to refresh the database.
When connect it to my PC (in MSC mode) Windows reports that the USB device is malfunctioning and the Explorer shell hangs as it tries to read the drive.
Eventually it shows up but Windoze Explorer hangs trying to access the drive. It does show the “charging” animation, however.
I’ve tried doing a soft reset, resetting from the System menu, formatting the drive from the Clip’s System menu.
Reformatting it seems to work in that after completion everything reports “[empty]” but System Info reports ~800MB in use.
Then if I power cycle the Clip all my audio files show up in the menu and I can listen to them. So its not formatting.
I was able to fix a similar problem before by reformatting it but this is not working now.
Please help. This is frustrating as hell as I need to put new audiobooks on it.
