I just bought an 8gb Clip in europe (and payed the full retail price; same price as clip+ but the clip+ aint here in stores yet so…) and then I’m reading Sandisk’s Ridiculous statement about their cutting off the support (I seriousely hope this isn’t their final decision.). I can’t believe I’ve bought something defective right out of the box and taht the maker doesn’t even accept fixing it!! I can’t return the thing 'cause I’m not in europe anymore and anyway I have to stick with it. now, I’m new to the whole clip thing;( just got this because of clip’s very good (and now non-existant) SQ reputation.) So please help me out with my questions:
1- from what firmware version did the pitch issue begin?
2- can I downgrade(or should I say upgrade!!?) the firmware to a previous one without this problem? if so, where am I gonna find the firmware files? does that pitch bug-free firmware support FLAC?
3- is it possible that the Clip+ fixed firmware get hacked for use in Clip in the future? or even be compatible as is?(considering the hardware similarities and all)
4- what softwares do you recommand for fast and easy (preferably batch) conversion of 44.1 to 48 khz Mp3 and FLAC files? what’s the toll on SQ because of the conversion?
