First the specs:
- SanDisk CLip Sport 8GB
- SanDisk Firmware version: 1.36
- Brand new microSDHC: Kingston Class 10, 32Gbytes
Just bought it and found two major problems, one being very severe:
First one: I lost files moved to the microSDHC after inserted in the SanDisk (after the scanning).The files were not recoverable by any uneraser I tried even when tried excessive search:
- iCare Data Recovery Pro 220.127.116.11
- EaseUS Data Recovery
- GetDataBack for FAT 4.33
The strange thing was I organized files in several folders under a Music/ folder in the SD card:
Every file except the ones inside Beethovhen/ were completely removed. Weird.
I am really sad because I lost very valuable recording from Conferences, although of course part of my fault for not doing regular backups.
After that problem, I found I should put all my files in the SD card under a single folder (Music/) and they are kept normally.
Second problem is I cannot play songs in microSDHC. I read the whole thread “File format not supported” : http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/SanDisk-Clip-Sport/quot-File-format-not-supported-quot-randomly-appears/td-p/319808
But my problem is not random, I always receive “file format not supported” on every file I try to play. I tried several formats: MP3, WAV, FLAC from sizes 1Mb to 25Mb with several encoders through the fre:ac Free Audio Converter software:
LAME MP3 Encoder 3.99.5
Bit-rates tried: 128kbps, 192 Kbps, 320 Kbps
FLAC Audio Encoder 1.3.1
The same files play nice if I place them on the internal SanDisk storage.
Now I don’t know what to do.
A guy in the previous thread said you’re supposed to use a class 4 SDHC. Is this confirmed by dev team?
Should I try to reformat the card?
Any other suggestion?
