how do I get FLAC files onto the Clip

hi all

 

New 8GB Sansa Clip. All my music is ripped in FLAC using EAC. Plays no problem on Sonos and PC via MediaMonkey.

 

I can't get files onto the Clip.

 

If I try drag-and-drop to the \media\music folder I get a message "Media Type not supported on this device".

 

If I try to sync. via MediaMonkey I get the blank \Elbow\Leaders.... folder created but no files.

 

According to the system info I have V02.01.16F

 

Also when the player is turned on it always goes to the Radio for some reason.

 

Any ideas?

According to the sticky I already have the latest firmware.

 

The docs. with the player also state FLAC support.

I assume your music has the .flac extension.  Double check the revision of the firmware.  FLAC was added in the last version.

They are .flac files, yes.

 

I tried adding an explicit .flac to one track and got the same error.

Did you try MSC or MTP mode?  Settings>USBMode> Select MTP or MSC

 

I would apply the firmware update again.

Where is the MTP or MSC setting?

Fixed - I changed the USB setting to MSC mode from "Auto Select" and I can now drag and drop and sync. via MediaMonkey.

 

Thanks
