Sorry to hear that. Especially relevant and unfortunate since the 2 memories (internal and card) cannot be combined. Smiley Sad

Well, I hope that I am proven wrong, and that the 16GB model ends up being offered here.

 

Although I personally have been content with a 32GB card in a Zip ( I didn't want to go through the hassle of re-formatting a 64GB card to FAT32) , and even now I only have a 16GB card in mine, there are people that want to carry everything with them, or use FLAC which eats up tons of space. 

 

 

iPod Touch 5G 32GB, Touch 4G 32GB, Clip Sport 8GB.
Rockbox-> Clip Zip 4GB, iPod Nano 2G 4GB, iPod 5.5G 80GB
2012 Nexus 7 32GB, Asus MeMoPad 8 16+64GB, LG Optimus G Pro, Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Lumia 520

Worst case I'm sure you'll be able to buy the international version off Amazon or Newegg in the US.

The 16GB version will be offered in all regions. The release for the 16GB is still a few months out. It will have the same 4000 folder/file database limit for internal and 4000 folder/file limit for external memory. These databases are not combined and must be accessed separately.

That's good news, slotmonsta (about the 16GB version's pending release)! If one exceeds the file/folder database limit, I assume they can still bypass the database and navigate to their full song collection through the folder browser, yes?

No, as far as the development team has specified the database limit is the limit of songs that can be displayed in any menu.

Ah. Okay then. Another reason to cross my fingers for eventual Rockbox development. Smiley Wink

Re: Sandisk Clip Sport?

Aak!  Did they drop the microphone?

 

The product information doesn't have the word "microphone" anywhere!

 

I was figuring I would by the 16GB as soon as I could, go from 72 to 80GB effective, and 96x96 to 128x128 ...

 

... But none of that is worth losing the microphone, to me!

 

Can someone confirm?  Does this have the mic the way the plus and zip do?

 

???

Re: Sandisk Clip Sport?

This player is built and marketed toward a very specific niche market so some features were dropped. The microphone I believe, was one of them.

 

I don't know of anybody really wanting to record their heavy breathing while running, or grunts of pain and exertion while working out in the gym. Smiley Tongue

Re: Sandisk Clip Sport?

Well... The whole targeting thing...

 

128x128, longer battery life, 16GB - those are NOT sports-specific features.


So, unless there is also going to be a "non-sport sport"...

 

Anyway, I'm disappointed in that one.
