Re: Sansa Clip Zip Firmware 01.01.20

There is an issue with MTP mode.   When I switch to it to make a playlist, I cannot see my music files (even though I know they're there),  When I switch to MSC, the files "reappear".  Smiley Surprised Smiley Frustrated

That's not a flaw in the firmware or the player, it's just the way MTP and MSC modes work. Files transferred in one mode are "invisible" to the PC when connected in the other mode. It's ALWAYS been this way. The only way to avoid it is to use one mode or the other exclusively.

I don't understand why files added in MTP mode don't just get copied to a something like [albumtag]/[title].mp3 so that they're visible in MSC mode. Seems like it would be really easy to implement.

Still no way to play podcasts in folder mode. Please correct this problem.

Here (France) it seems that RDS information still does not appear for stations with a space in their name. I will perform further testing downtown, where the signal is expected to be better.

I have the same problem with a radio station in Germany. Real RDS name is  "OLDIE 95" but the Zip shows " KBQN".

That's not the fault of the Zip. It will only display what the radio station broadcasts and keys into the RDS tag. I don't know about Germany but here in the States, radio & TV stations are required to broadcast (or identity themselves with) their call letters, such as KBQN periodically.

Re: Sansa Clip Zip Firmware 01.01.20

Thanks for fixing playlists, guys! Great to see that customers' opinion matters!

 

I would be really happy if for the next iteration you manage to:

  • add the info on "now playing" screen for elapsed time and time remaining for songs (also maybe track position in now playing list? like 17/235);
  • add the function to "Return to now playing list" , which would take you to the list of tracks that are currently queued;
  • help improve battery life by not having the screen light up when pressing any buttons when device is locked.
    Phones work like that - there's a lock button that turns screen off immediately (not wait for it to go off by itself in 15 or more sec). Pressing any other buttons shouldn't light it up - volume controls could still be functional while locked, but screen should remain dark. If you want to light screen up - press lock button again.
    Longer battery time would make users happy => user reviews and feature checklists on shop sites better => more sales for Sansa.

Thanks again! You've created a real gem!

Re: Sansa Clip Zip Firmware 01.01.20

Since this firmware update 01.01.20 my Phapsody account is useless. Please advise on a solution or fix the track update feature. I don't want to pay for Rhapsody if my player can not update track licenses.
