New user. I just bought the 2gb Sansa Clip. I wanted to use the voice record feature regularly. It was going fine, the sound recording was better than I expectd. I wanted to transfer the files to iTunes on my Mac, which wasn’t working. In the process I ended up with this message on the unit:
“Connect device and recover corrupted FAT.”
Then it shuts down. I tried everything I know how, including reformatting MS-DOS FAT(32), but no joy. When disconnected the thing still displays the same message when I power on, then it shuts itself off.
When connected, it still displays the Connected message and motion graphics.
Is there a cure for this problem?
BTW, I have a slot loader which will not accept the miniature CD that came in the package … I’m not even going to try, it’ll get stuck in there for sure.
