In the release notes to the Clip Zip version 17 firmware, SanDisk notes that "Some brands and types of microSD cards are not recognized by device." Not good for consumers, potentially having to return/exchange cards that don't work with the player, on a case-by-case basis (unless you only buy SanDisk cards, presumably?).
Perhaps some of you tech gurus out there would know: why would this be the case? I thought that the SD/microSD standard was, well, a standard. And even more curious, the incompatibility does not seem to be card "quality"-based--one user reports issues with a PNY card in the Clip Zip. (My thought is/was that PNY is a good, standard brand.) Adding to the curiosity, the user reports that the same card works fine in his Fuze and Clip+.
Is this a hardware or firmware issue, and can it be fixed?
Just color me curious.
