Re: Sansa Clip+ microSD & microSDHC Cards (Max Size)

Some people have reported that a 64GB microSDXC will work in the Clip+ if the card is formatted as FAR32. I haven't tried it myself. Keep in mind though that the player has a song limit of around 8,000 songs unless you are using Rockbox.

While you may not think music can fill a 32GB card, audiobooks ripped from audiobook CD's can suck up a lot of space. I'm currently ripping audiobooks at 64k to MP3 to help cut down on the file size. Ripped a 22 disc audiobook recently and it's over 700MB's. Ripped Atlas Shrugged (45 disc's - 635 files) last week and its 1.5GB in size. Currently have about 20GB's of audiobooks on a 32GB class 4 Sandisk microSD card.

Re: Sansa Clip+ microSD & microSDHC Cards (Max Size)

For audiobooks and podcasts without music, I suggest using 32kbps mono for the mp3 files. At 32kbps wma files sound a bit better than mp3 ones, however battery life is much less for wma files than for mp3 files on Sandisk players, so I suggest using mp3 files. Even 16kbps mp3 files are usable, although the sound is much worse using 16kbps instead of 32kbps, while for spoken word files there is very little difference in sound quality between 64kbps and 32kbps mono.

Re: Sansa Clip+ microSD & microSDHC Cards (Max Size)

I  just purchased a 8 GB micro SD card.  Can somene point me to direcions on how to use this in the clip?  Do you just load the music on the card and play from the card instead of the internmal memory?

Re: Sansa Clip+ microSD & microSDHC Cards (Max Size)

You could load the card first before putting it in the player, or you could load it while the card is in the player. Us If you plan to load the card while it is in the player, I suggest that you make sure the usb mode mode of the player is set to MSC. The card will appear as a separate drive when you connect the player to your pc.

And for playing purposes, the Clip+ integrates the card's contents into the player's database listings (the Artist, Album, Title, and Genre listings).  However, if you navigate by Folders (under the Music listing, at the bottom), the card's contents show up separately--just like on your computer.

Re: Sansa Clip+ microSD & microSDHC Cards (Max Size)

How do I set the USB mode? When I connect my microSDHC card, the player freezes up and none of the controls work. But then fine when I remove the card.
