FS#12623 - Clip+ crash/hang with 32GB microsd card


I use 32GB Adata card in my Clip+ and after couple of minutes/hours Rockbox hang/crash.
I can’t do anything but I still hear music. I tried some of my older daily builds and its same. Official build still crash.

I can only press Power for some seconds and turn OF. On OF there is no problem at all.
Some people write about this problem here:,29748.0.html

For years I used a clip+ with a 32GB uSD card with no issues, and I cannot seem to recreate this problem with current builds.

It is possible there is something wonky with that specific card, or the problem you ran into has long since been fixed.

Please re-open this ticket if it still affects you; otherwise I'm considering it outdated.

You mentioned 3.10 in that thread, does the same problem happen with newer builds (specify which)?

Yes, i tried daily build that I made from source files and it's same. Downloaded daily build and stable build from site cause same issues.
I used old 3.9 build and still hang in random moment.
I can only turn backlight by pressing any key, but I see only WPS, can't go back to do something else. Sometimes i can go out from WPS and when i try select some song via file manager i can't run it. Nothing happen.

Ok, but can you specify which build you tested?

Today i tested 3 lastest stable releases. 3.9, 3.91 and 3.10.

I used clean installations. Without previous saved settings.

I found a faster way to hang/crash device. On demand.
I play random mp3 file from my 32GB Adata microSD card and then go to:
System→Rockbox Info

Then press SELECT key and when on screen apear [Scanning disc…] device hang/crash. Sometimes I must repeat this 2-3 times. I can only turn on backlight by pressing random key. Can't go back or do something else.

When no music is playing in background, [Scanning disc…] apears for 4-6 seconds and then disapear. I can repeat this 15 times and still device won't hang/crash.
When I play file from internal memory and microSD is plugged in device still hang/crash.


It's happening when music is turn on and device try scan microSD card. I checked card and it's error/bad sector free.

Same content (1:1) on 8GB card works great.
