Hi, I hope someone can help as I’ve nearly driven myself crazy today trying to figure out what’s going on! I just purchased the Sansa Clip+ 8gb. I purchased a sandisk 32gb microsd card to go in it - I listen to audiobooks, and wanted to be able to store all the books at once on the device.
I updated the firmware to v01.02.18a using the updater and began transferring files. Long story short, no matter where I put the files on the HD card (in the MUSIC folder, the AUDIOBOOK folder, the root of the card, it came up [empty]. This is regardless of MTP or MSC mode, always empty.
Then I saw some suggestions about installing Rockbox firmware having helped with files not showing up - this I did, and my files began to show up, excellent I thought. So, I moved over some more items. I ensured, while still connected to my laptop, that all my files were on the SD card. I safely removed the device, as I have been doing the whole time. Then, I browsed to the files on the Clip+. Some of the files had disappeared. The folders they were in were present. But the contents were gone. When I connected the device to my laptop, sure enough, the folders were empty. It seems to be completely arbitrary as to what vanishes. All I know for sure is it’s driving me crazy! I really hope someone knows what to do, look forward to your suggestions!
