I just bought the clip zip today and of course am running it through it’s paces. So far so good with one exception. I have 1 specific mp3 that locks the player when i try to play it. When i say lock i mean the menus still respond, i can navigate around, but the song won’t play, nor will any other song that i attempt to play after it, the now playing screen always reverts back to the original problem song’s info. After a reset, all other songs work fine again.
Problem song info:
256 kbps 44 khz
1:27:32 duration (full DJ set)
2 channel stereo
I re-encoded the file to a lower bitrate but still no luck. This file works fine on PC, tablet, phone, etc. I’m able to play other files with longer durations, higher bitrates…so i’m kind of at a loss for what else to try.
Any suggestions? TIA
** EDIT **
Now i’m even more stumped. I converted the problem MP3 back to wave, then took that wav file back through Lame to a nice new 160 kbps mp3. Same issue.
