well… i just bought a 1gb sansa clip today, and i haven’t been able to use it on my computer in either the MTP or MSC mode. I’ve read most of the threads here, but i still can’t do anything.
right now, the clip is connected to the front-panel USB slot and charging. the comp won’t see it, and neither does WMP11. anyway, i’ve tried the lock and hold center button then connect thing, but i’m thinking it still connects in MTP mode. maybe it doesn’t know it’s supposed to connect in MSC mode (very old firmware? V01.01.11F do all units initially come with that version?).
anyway, when it’s disconnected from the computer, i can power it on and play the music (well, at least i could, before i tried formating the clip ). when i try to connect it locked and pressing the center key, it just powers on as usual, and just displays the lock icon. and i get nowhere…
what do i do?? return the clip to the shop?
