Files not shown in Sansa Clip mp3 player

Postby sxphild » 04 Jun 2017 10:33

This is a weird one...

I have a Sansa Clip+ portable mp3 player. I wanted to get some files
from it - connected it via its USB link to several PCs running
SolydX ( 201607 and 201701 ). It does mount the device
and show the folders....but does not show the files in those folders!

There are 8 files there - I know because I listen to them regularly..
they are all .flac format. Yet, when I open the MUSIC folder ( where
they are located ) ...nothing shows. a "df" command in terminal
shows that the space is used ( 772MB out of 1.9GB).

I tried this is three machines, and also in another version of Linux ( Puppy )
with the same result.

The files do show in the one Windows 7 PC I have access to, but my goal
is to "move to" Linux...

Any suggestions? Someone else must have run across this issue...

Thanks,

Sure, just search the internet with "Sansa Clip mp3 player linux". A lot of info shows up. Also Amazon customer reviews are a good source of information to my experience. The first post showing up on Startpage explained how to set the player into MSC mode and that might solve the problem.

Please do an internet search before asking. If you did, include this information in your post and tell me what you tried.
