Hi folks, just found this forum.
I am on my second 2GB Clip. I bought both from Woot! as refurbs (Just player, earbuds and USB cable). The first died when I couldn’t seem to get it to charge via the USB connection. It charged once, then after that it didn’t work. My USB ports are powered so that wasn’t the issue. I figured I just got a bum unit. I tried charing it on several computers. I own Macs but also tried a PC at work. Has anyone else had this problem?
Anyway, I liked the little guy so much, I got another when I saw it offered on Woot! again. The firmware reads 01.01.30A so I will be updating that manual as I’ve read in the Forum here (tonight). My other question is the audio seems worse on this unit. It sounds rather tinny and crackley. The files are good quality MP3s (either 192 or 224 kbps) so I don’t think that’s the issue. I tried a 3 different headphones and the issue was the same for them all. Could it be the current firmware?
Thanks in advance for your help!
