Hi I am new to this forum and need help.
I have gone from loving my clip to being increasingly frustrated with it. I primarily use it to download audiobooks. I have never downloaded or used any software like Rhapsody. I have only ever used music I have ripped from my own cds on my own pc or books l have downloaded with overdrive from the library. Now I can play either none of the books I have downloaded from the library or only the first 2 segments at which point it will not play any of the rest of them but prompts me to sync to reset my subscription or most recently transfer title using audiobook software. I have had a 2GB clip for 18 months now. For 16 months no problems. I download lots of books from the library using overdrive and have played them with no issues. Over the last couple of months everything prompted me to download new versions of things from Overdrive software to clip firmware to internet explorer. Soon after doing all this I tried downloading a new book - no luck my clip was no longer recognized. For the next month I was able to listen to books already on the clip but not download anything else. I finally decided to do something about this and have tried pretty much every fix I could find with none of them working - here are most of the things I do know:
-I can sync to my pc - windows xp
-I have the firmware updater and on my clip it says that I have the firmware V01.01.32A
-My computer will recognize the clip as a MSC by simply plugging it in. I can force it in MTP to hook up - lock the power and hold down center button. But it won’t recognize it a second time with out doing it again.
-I have done the windows media player security upgrade in overdrive.
-I have reformatted several times with the clip in both MTP and MSC and on the computer with the clip in both settings. But all times I continue to have the error message that I need to sync or transfer title
-I have gone into WMP11 and gone to Sync>more options > privacy > and made sure that “download usage rights automatically when I play or sync a file” is checked and it still won’t let me listen once I download book fresh to overdrive and sync to clip.
-In both WMP11 and overdrives the properties say that they audiobooks are authorized to be synced to a device. Once I sync it the properties for the audiobook on the device say “protected content”
Can someone help me please!!! Shereen
