Default Clip Sport beta firmware update: beta firmware version 1.28

SanDisk has issued out a beta firmware version 1.28 for the Sport, and is seeking feedback on it.

The purpose of the beta firmware is to increase the database from 2000 entries per memory source to 4000. This is being done by limiting the number of characters the sorting algorithm looks at. These tradeoffs are due to the limits of the Sport hardware.

As SanDisk particularizes it:

Clip Sport (v1.27 or earlier)
Title 28/14
Album/Book Name 28/14, Track under Album are sort by ID3:track number
Artist /Author 28/14
Genre Not Support
Database size 2000 object

Clip Sport (v1.28)
Title 16/8
Album/Book Name 16/8, Track under Album are sort by ID3:track number
Artist /Author 16/8
Genre Not Support
Database size 4000 object
No other changes are being proposed/enacted by the beta firmware.

SanDisk specifically is asking for feedback as to real-world use issues, including:
  • Using the new sorting algorithm are your files still sorted correctly or the way you would expect them to be sorted?
  • Do you have albums or artists that are not sorted correctly using the new sorting algorithm? What are artists or albums are not sorted correctly?
  • Are audiobooks and podcasts sorted correctly? If not what Audiobooks and or podcasts?
Any overall feedback regarding the new sorting algorithm is welcomed.
For your information/attention.
