Default new Clip - not recognized!

Just got a new Sansa clip - tried to connect with Audible, somewhere it said I should re-format the clip, so I did. Now it does not get recognized by windows (XP, sp2) - or by Audible. No music, no books, not having too much fun with it.
Any ideas?
thanks, Will

I had the same problem when I first got the Clip. A switch to MSC mode fixed it, though my computer still doesn't recognize MTP mode. If you have the updated firmware, you can do this in Settings > USB Mode. If not, I think there are some instructions for forcing MSC mode somewhere, though I don't know it.

Connect in MSC mode
  • Change power button to HOLD position
  • While holding center button, using a USB cable, connect Sansa Clip to PC
  • Unit will show up as a drive in windows explorer

Download newest firmware and install, safe disco and let it upgrade the fw. Find fw on post #1 click here.

thanks - this worked. Where is this documented? Not on anything I got with the player. Sheesh - weren't for helpful forums like this, no one would know how to do anything.

Outside of here and possibly the sandisk forums, I don't think it is documented. There's all kind of cool tricks and ideas you can pick up here, just read through all the sticky's and then through the sub-forums, you'll see
