Clip+ memory card issue - player won't turn on
I searched but couldn't find anything on this. ~6 month old Clip+ with the latest firmware. I bought a card to stuff more music onto the thing (8GB Samsung Class 2 SDHC). I formatted it with the recommended formatter in this forum. If I put it in (completely empty) it will recognize the card and update the player - very quick since there is nothing on it. If I turn the player off with the card in there it won't turn back on nor will hooking the player to the computer evoke any response - completely dead. Take the card out and it's fine. Starts up no problem and plays everything well.
I have no interest in flipping a card in and out all the time since I have to bag it to keep from killing it with sweat on my runs (I killed 4 last year before I finally started bagging them - wish they would make a "sport" version). Any ideas on what may be wrong here?
