SanDisk has just released the 01.01.29 firmware revision for the Sansa Clip. Download links and the release notes are available below.

Let me start off by saying that majority of people will be able to update his/her firmware through the Sansa Firmware Updater. There is even a how-to video that explains the process. If for any reason the aforementioned steps do not work for you, then please feel free to continue by trying the more "computer savy" steps, described below.



Windows
Users can Connect the device in any Mode and follow the instructions below.

Mac and Linux users can connect their Clip in MSC mode and follow the instructions below.

MSC mode instructions:

  1. Turn on the Clip
  2. Put the device in Hold (move Hold button until orange is showing)
  3. Press and hold the Center Button
  4. Plug the mini-USB connector into the device (be sure the USB is plugged into the computer)
  5. Wait for the Clip drive to mount
  6. Follow instructions below and drag files to the Clip drive



For AMERICAS - You can download the .zip file by clicking on this link.

For EUROPE w/o FM - You can download the .zip file by clicking on this link.

For EUROPE w/ FM - You can download the .zip file by clicking on this link.  
  1. Extract the .zip file into a folder on your computer.
  2. Once extracted, drag the file to the root directory of your Sansa Clip.
  3. Disconnect the Sansa Clip and let it restart.
  4. The firmware update will now begin.
  5. Once it finally finishes doing its update, it will boot back up. Once its back to the main menu, head to "Settings" > "System Info", and verify the "Version" is now 01.01.29A.

If I put all of my podcasts into the podcast folder, and each podcast artist gets its own folder, is there a way to shuffle the podcasts when I play them?

 

eg: if I have 2 podcast folders:

- Bill Simmons from ESPN

- TWiT from Leo Laporte

 

Each folder has a few podcasts.  Is there a way that I can randomly select which podcast plays next from those 2 folders?

OGG support is a surprise.

I was hoping for gapless, though.

Still, an improvement is an improvement.

Thanks, Sansa Devs!

Grrrrreat! .. thanks.

I added the Vorbis support to these wiki's:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorbis

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SanDisk_Sansa

wiki.xiph.org/index.php/PortablePlayers

- and by the way, the latter explains that "Ogg" should not be written in all caps...
