This is the first time I’ve tried to connect it to WMP to load music. I have a completely up-to-date Vista Ultimate OS, and have loaded the latest Clip firmware V01.01.18A, and have formated the Clip to remove everything. Every time WMP 11 launches when I have the Clip connected, it crashes with the dialog “Windows Media Player has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.” It doesn’t matter if the Clip is plugged in before I launch WMP, or after. It doesn’t matter if the Clip is in MTP or MSC mode. Windows Explorer sees the Clip just fine, and I’m sure I could drag some music in there with Explorer. However, the songs I want to transfer are in a WMP Playlist, and I need it to downsample my WMA Lossless format to something the Clip can handle.
Any ideas why WMP 11 keeps crashing with the Clip?
