Congrats, Miikerman!

 

All the best,

Thanks–and maybe there’s some helpful info. along the way!

Can the Sansa Clip charge + play at the same time yet?

It seems like the terrible way it handles USB docking would have been the first thing fixed in the firmware. I want to be able to charge my Clip without the **bleep** screen flashing and wasting screen life, and charge it while listening to music. It seems there’s no reason why this couldn’t be done. 

If you recharge through AC, you can play and recharge at the same time.
