After searching the forum, I find that I’m not the only user who has a problem with the extremely slow “refreshing your media” problem. There are about 900 posts worth of annoyed customers grappling with this issue across multiple devices.
I’m using a Clip+ with a 32 GB SDHC card, and my test involved a single new MP3 file being added. I timed my media refresh. 42 minutes!
This is unacceptable. How did this pass through quality assurance? Surely, someone testing the device would have pointed out that having to wait nearly an hour every time you wanted to listen to music was a bad design.
The worst part of all of this, is that I don’t even use the player’s built in database. All of my files are neatly separated by artist into their own folders, and I use the folder view to search through them.
I don’t want the refresh, I don’t need the refresh. How do I turn it off?
