I bought my 8gb Sansa Clip from Amazon about 6 months ago but it seems to have recently developed a fault. Before I send it back I wanted to ask anyone if they had experienced the following and if so if there was a fix I could implement myself.
1: The clip boots up slower than it used to, takes upto 1 minute to start playing
2: Battery life seems degraded by about 70% - and yes I am holding the power button down for 8 seconds to make sure it shuts down rather than goes into sleep mode.
3: I cant delete any songs from it, I have tried using the clip itself, which says it has deleted the song but then its back again, I tried deleting songs using windows and it looks like they have gone but then they are back again. Then I tried the format option on the sansa and it says - format complete but the songs are still there.
4: The clip (when its working) always starts on the same song regardless of where I stopped even if I change the play options, although to be fair I have only reset it by using play all several times.
The updater doesnt update so I assume that the firmware is current. Oh and the only folder I am using is the music folder and I have used up about 50% of the 8gb drive. The tags are mostly ID3 with a few WMV and even less with no tag data, but the same songs have been on there when it was functioning fine previously.
Thanks for looking
