Subject: problems with clip+

problems with clip+

From: David Mehler <>

I'm running rockbox 3.10 on my Sandisk Clip+. My previous experience
with rockbox was on my Sandisk e280 series and to be honest I'm really
prefering that one. Audio quality is better on the clip+ but at least
for me it's not been a fun error free transition and I'd appreciate
any help.

Problem1, I use the voice feature so I can get audio feedback. On my
e280 messages such as recent bookmarks, rockbox info, anything in the
menus, were announced with the computer's default tts voice. On my
clip+ the installation was done on a machine whose default tts voice
was Microsoft sam, which frankly is awful and messages like the above
are given with that tts, thus far I've not been able to get rid of it
and I might have bricked the clip+ now trying. I have removed and
reinstalled the rockbox firmware to no avail, that didn't do it.
Thinking it might be the boot loader, I loaded up the original boot
loader then reloaded rockbox, which leads me in to problem2, now
whenever I plug the clip+ in my computer gives me the message "USB
device not recognized, a usb device attached to the computer has
malfunctioned". I can get in to rockbox, but replacing the boot loader
still didn't solve the original voice problem and now has added the
new device not recognized by the computer issue so I now have no way
to get content copied on to or off of the clip.

Problem2 is with the clip+ itself, might be something I have to live
with, it's battery performance is not good, I have to charge it after
ten to twelve hours of use, I was wondering if there was methods for
conserving battery power.

I'd like to get the clip+ recognized by the computer again, to solve
the voice issue, and if doable correct the battery drain I'm seeing.
Any help appreciated.
