So I started having problems with my clip today, I looked around the forums and didn’t find anything that fixed it:
MSC mode isn’t working at all, it shows up as an unrecognized device, and then as a random external drive. When I try opening it, it gives me a timeout for establishing a semaphore (something like that).
It sees the clip in MTP mode, but doesn’t allow me to transfer files.
Bootup, shutdown, and refresh database are incredibly slow (30 or so seconds each). Also, when disconnecting from the computer, it takes almost a minute for the disconnected screen to go away.
It won’t allow me to do a firmware upgrade, both from the updater (updater says failed) and manually (can’t get file on clip). I do have the latest firmware for America on, installed it just a few days back, but it seems I can’t overwrite it (maybe it got corrupted somehow).
And I deleted all my music one by one from it using the menu in the clip, I thought maybe clearing it might help, but it didn’t delete anything and I can still play the 25 or so songs I had in there, all of which I pressed delete on.
This all started this morning, it was working fine yesterday.
