Forum newbie here.
When I connected my Clip Zip to my PC this morning, my PC didn’t recognise it and open the folder as normal. The USB appears to be fine as the Clip Zip turned on by itself when connected to the PC and is currently charging.
Here’s what I have done so far:
Turned it on and off.
Tried downloading new firmware, but the updater states that mine is current.
Tried enabling or forcing MSC mode as per the instructions on this site but it didn’t work: the Clip Zip just turned on again as per normal.
It doesn’t show in Device Manager, either, as 1. USB Mass Storage device
(if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode) and I have changed to to each mode and auto detect to see if the DM detected it, but it still hasn’t.
This is the first time it has happened after owning it for about a year, and coincidentally, it happened after the first time I had it running all night for eigh hours (thin walls and noisy neighbours). Surely these players don’t over heat?
Can anyone suggest what I need to do to sort it out?
Thanks in advance.
