Re: FAT corrupted

By "that," you mean a reformat under Windows on your Clip?

 

You might try to run a Windows error correction (the good, old CHKDSK) on your Clip, if you can (right click on the Clip drive, choose Properties, and get to the tab where the error correction option is--be sure to tick the "fix errors" box).
