So as of today, my clip is no longer recognized by Windows, though it was for the past six months.
Doesn’t show up in ‘My Computer’ nor in the device manager. Is not recognized by Sansa Updater, obviously.
Changing the clips’s USB mode has no effect.
I’ve tried about a half dozen USB cords.
The interesting thing is that when it is plugged into the computer, it charges up AND I can listen to music! Indeed… when it is plugged in to the computer it operates just as it would when it isn’t plugged in… it does all the normal functions (but also charges up).
Obviously because it is not recognized I can’t change the firmware (which is at the most recent version anyways).
