I have a Clip+ (8 gig resident and a 32G Sandisk MicroSD) - all songs are on the Sd card, none on the player. I have about 16 gig loaded - well over 5,000 songs - all songs ripped from my CD collection. All are MP3 format. I use Windows Media player to rip the Cds to the library on my computers - desktop is Microsoft 7, and laptop is 8.1.
It only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to refresh the playlist when I add songs - I am willing to live with that, since I only add songs once a month or so.
However, it does take more than five minutes to boot the player when I power it on - every time. Is this normal with the number of songs? I use the player daily at work - but was turnign it off when I went to lunch or on breaks - but the reboot time was too long so I now just turn the peaker off and allow th eplayer to play silently - if I pause the song, the player turns itself off automatically, leading to the long reboot time.
Are these long boot times normal for so many songs? Is there a setting to prolong the auto-**bleep** off when the player is paused?
