Hello Sansa community.
I’ve just bought a sansa clip
And test it under linux (I’ve upgrade under win to fw29)
So here is the problem:
When i boot under linux with my clip into an usb port (with enough power) the system will recognize it and I can mount as a portable device.
But if I unmount it and try to reconnect nothing happen.
I’ve tried an other linus system (last Sidux in live CD mode, kenel 22.214.171.124) the problem is the same.
I’m now under Ubuntu 8.04 (kernel 126.96.36.199).
I’ve also tried to format the player under windows with FAT32 fileformat, same as before.
I’ve not tried with an other firmware but I’ll do it and edit this post if it works. (Fw20)
Here is my kernel log when i reput the sansa after unmount and disconnect it:
So Sansa works when I boot wit.
But if unmount / disconnect it’s no more recognized

Under windows not any problem it works perfectly (MSC mode used)
I’ve decided to post here because it could be a firmware bug.
Thanks for your reading and help.
After a test under ubuntu Gutsy and mint (7.10) kernel 2.6.22 it works like a charm. I think there is a problem with the fw29 by communicating with new linux 2.6.24 kernel.
