I'm having a problem with audiobooks and firmware 1.38. If I load more than five or six audiobooks only the first five to six books are visible. The rest of the books can be seen in folderview and shows up as albums in musicview. The audiobooks are tagged with genre "Audiobook" and placed in the folder "Audiobooks". Does anyone else have this problem?

Here are a few quick suggestions for you to explore.
1. Make sure you do not have more than 2000 audio files saved into your player storage space (or the micro SD card).
2. Make sure the first 12-16 characters of the Book names have sufficient unique specificity between all the audio books in your player. You may need to edit the ID3 tags.
3. If you save the audio books files in the main Audiobooks folder, they should not be displayed as music files.
When you use Books mode, the player will create one restore point for each audio file.
When you use Books mode, you can select 1 of 3 playback speeds: Slow, Normal, Fast.
4. The Clip Sport and Jam do not recognize the Genre field in the ID3 tag.

Since updating firmware to 1.38 all audiobook tracks show as 34 or 35 seconds in length, so I have no idea how much time is remaining as I'm listening to a track. Is there a way to downgrade back to 1.36?

Just got a Clip Sport. Out of the box it was on I'm on firmware 1.38, but just to be sure I did the upfrgae. No problems.
But I have this annoying problem: in Music view all band names and album titles are truncated to 12 characters (but not song titles). I guess this has to be related to improper reading of tags, as in the Folders view everything is fine.
Note: all of these music files were fine on my Sansa Fuze, so the tags are not the problem.
I would never have replaced the Fuze if the headphone jack hadn't become faulty. It's so much nicer than the Clip ...
