Just got a Clip Zip 4gb a couple of days ago as I wanted a player that works with Linux and FLAC support was a nice touch too. But already run into problems.
At first I tried loading just 2 or 3 songs and checked everything played ok. All good. Then decided to load about 2gb of music onto it but once disconnected from the computer it just freezes at the ‘Refreshing Your Media’ stage. I’m guessing its becuase of the large database of music with associated tags etc. But how long to leave it? Its been about an hour and a half now…
What’s more troublesome is I now cant do a thing with the player. Reset just causes the refreshing the media error when it turns back on so I can’t get into the menu to delete anything or format it. Connecting to a computer and it now doesn’t show up so I can’t access the device to format it or delete the music files that way either?
Any advice? I’m a bit miffed, heard nothing but good things about the device and yes ok, I loaded a lot of music at once but there should be some way out of this error. Sure a lot of people would drag and drop quite a lot of files rather than one at a time and it falls over like this? Surely im missing something obvious as this can’t be it.
