Had an 8GB Clip for just over 2 months. Intermittently it would refuse to connect or charge when connected to the PC, and would be a useless, lifeless lump of plastic. If left alone for 24 hours or so, when it was reconnected it would connect up and charge just fine.
Things have taken a turn for the worse, I’m afraid.
It’s been 3 days now, and the **bleep** thing still won’t connect, nor charge. I have tried the ‘soft reset’ by holding the power button in the uppermost position for twenty seconds or so. Nothing.
I have tried the ‘Hold centre button whilst connecting to PC’ method. Nothing.
I have tried on multiple computers and multiple USB ports. Nothing.
I have now officially run out of ideas and, the truth is, though it has caused me much misery, I just want my little friend back.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
N.B. Cannot access device to format it, and cannot access any settings on the device as the blasted thing won’t exhibit any signs of life.
FYI: Running XP and, in Device manager, no USB Device or Portable Device is listed,
