I love my clip so far, except for one HUGE problem: ever since the upgrade to 1.01.29, I have experienced a very large drop in sound quality. Regressing the firmware did not help, or at least to 1.01.20, I guess I can try even earlier ones if that might help. The sound is something like if I took a knife to a vinyl after holding it up to a candle. It warps and squeaks, then there are loud pop sounds, just like a record skipping. I know that it is not my headphones (tried several different ones) or the music files (at least not the original files, anyway, could be a transfer issue or something). Any idea what could be causing this? It’s made the player unusable. I think it may still be under warranty, but as I said, this didn’t occur before I upgraded. And anyway, RMA to newegg is a hassle I’d rather aviod.
EDIT: oops, forgot to give some specs. I’m using the 2gb black clip, and my OS is Linux (i386).
