My Clip+ froze while listening to an audiobook. The only function that would work was pressing the power button to turn it off. After that, it wouldn’t turn back on. I did the hold-down-the-power-button-for-30-seconds thing, to no avail. I then did the hold-down-the-power-button-and home-button for-30-seconds thing, which worked, and all was well.
But now, when I connect it to my laptop, it’s recognized as this odd name: QALDIQI QALAQ
I’m able to add music files with no problem, but Audible won’t recognize it.
AudibleManager gives me this message: :Your QALDIQI QALQS device model is not compatible with Audible content."
And the Audible for Windows 10 app just doesn’t show anything. (It used to show the Clip+ on the left side of the app, and I could drag audiobooks to it to add them).
I’ve tried formatting the Clip+, but both my laptop and Audible continue to recognize it as “QALDIQI QALAQ” instead of as a Sansa Clip device.
Suggestions? Do I need a fairy godmother to bippity-boppity-boo it back to its original self?
