Accepted Solution

AAC!

Following the firmware upgrade of my Sansa Clip+, I noticed it was accepting and playing AAC (.m4a) files. This applied to files ripped from CD by iTunes and files purchased from iTunes.

 

I have not found any mention of this anywhere on the web. Was this planned? Whether it was or not, it works....

Re: AAC!

I have the updated firmware and tried an AAC file. No go.

Re: AAC!

Sounds like you have badly named MP3 files.

Re: AAC!

No, the files are correctly named. But the "miracle" has nothing to do with the Clip+. The credit belongs to Winamp.

 

When using Winamp to load files onto the Clip+, it converts them to MP3. I was too excited to look at the files on the device itself. They end up with the extension "MP3".
