I have been using my Clip+ for a few months now and at the time of purchase, I bought an additional 8GB of space on a memory card, I was planning to buy another 8GB once this was used up
The player was ‘Rockboxed’ before I started loading files onto it. Several oddities occurred following these - ie the player would have to be switched off prior to connecting to Windows XP via USB cable, an easy workaround. After files were transferred to the player in the dual boot mode, I would disconnect and then switch off the player to re-boot in Rockbox… which appeared to overwrite the original mp3 file names with generic id’s - which had to be renamed in Rockbox…
While the Clip was connected to my PC i was also unable to create any file structure in the Clip+ folder, all files had to be transferred to the root folder (Music) and again, file structures would have to be created entirely within Rockbox along with moving the files form the Music folder to their respective folders… again, this was a bit of pain, one I could live with. Am now unsure as to whether a file structure was creatable before I Rockboxed (I never tried) ?? I can live with all the above just about.
However, today, (following a PC system re-install) Windows recognises an external USB connection attempt via the beep, but no external USB device is visible, so I switched from Auto Detect to MSC (MPT does nada ) and two USB drives are viewable - the Clip and a removable drive F! The Clip device has a folder called Rockbox (I assume the two drives displayed in explorer are related to the (faulty?) dual boot?). Regardless, I am unable to view any music files (total 3.75GB) in either folder, although if I right click properties for the Clip + folder, it reports 3.75GB space is used (the F ‘drive’ reads 0GB and has no data)
So either Rockbox has developed a glitch?
Or the USB cable has gone squiffy ? (ordered a replacement tonight).
