Ok, I just got the Clip Sport MP3 player this Christmas…a ‘Red’ one…holds 4-GB.
(1000 songs). I’m trying to load about 25% as many files as that.
This post is about my SECOND issue with this device:
So, I have a group of tracks from music CD’s that I recently ripped
selected tracks from, and am now trying to load and listen to them
on this new MP3 player.
I ripped the tracks about 3 to 6 months ago, using Win-7 and the
Microsoft “Windows Media Player”.
[ I copied your provided sample MP3 files from the player onto my laptop
(for analysis and safe-keeping) and then deleted those files from the
player…they resided in the “Music” folder there. ]
Then, just as I did SUCCESSFULLY for my older smaller MP3 player
(called an ‘Eclipse’), I just did a GUI-copy (via Ctrl-A key) of a
series of directories, and then ‘pasted’ (with Ctrl-V key) those into
the now-empty Music folder on the MP3 player. It took quite a
while (it said 287 files were copied) and they successfull got there just fine.
Ok, but now, only the alphabettically-FIRST artist’s files,
i.e. Bob Dylan tunes, seem to play! Yet, I verified that all the other
8 or 10 artists’ files are also resident there.
The Bob Dylan picture of the (first) album cover look fine (that magic
worked)…so that album picture and titles all appear just fine in the
little graphic window.
But, I can’t navigate to any other artist’s sub-folder of files, so all that
I can listen to are the tracks from Bob Dylan’s first album (e.g. 5 songs)!
[These exact steps works fine, on my older $20-dollar “Eclipse” MP3 player.]
So, any ideas on what might be ‘broken’??? Is this product ready for
prime time? (I think I saw an announcement for it on your site, dated
11 months or so ago…February, 2014.) I just purchased this thing
before early this past December, 2014, at BestBuy.
Any/all ideas welcome. Help, please!
