I have a sansa express and the shuffle is a predetermined pattern. It plays the same songs in the same order every time. I am thinking about getting a clip, but I do not want it of it has this same major flaw. So, has sandisk fixed this problem?
Thanks for the help.

well, since nobody feels like answering this. I'll give a small answer. My clip usually always starts in the early 100s, and i have no idea after that since, i dont' look at the clip anymore after that. If you press the NEXT or PREV button, they change to different a song.

Well, here is what I experience. If you put Shuffle feature ON, the clip will play all the songs in your device randomly until all are played and then repeat. I have about 250 songs to shuffle and I have not heard a repeat for awhile so I assume that it's not predetermined but randomly generate.

Was experiencing the same thing
I got used to hitting the play all , and it seemed to have become a playlist until i read this post
and realized the last firmware update must have turned the shuffle off .
thanks for the post , looking forward to a better bike ride with " new " music
[ because if i wanted to hear the same old stuff , i'd listen to the radio of course ! ]

This just goes to show that no matter how long ago a solution had been posted, it can still help someone resolve an issue.

My experience is just the opposite; on shuffle I hear the same songs come up way to often. This feature and the poor FM reception are my biggest gripes though I think this is a great player.

I'm looking for an MP3 player that has a truly random shuffle. I've had a Sony Walkman that had a random shuffle but has worn out, and a Hipstreet that always repeated the same 20-30 songs out of over 700. I'm getting rid of the Hipstreet and considering buying a Sandisk Clip Jam or Clip Sport. If I put it on random play will I get the same songs over and over or will each of my 700 songs have the same chance of playing? Based on the latest replies on this thread I don't know whether I should buy
