autorun.inf is a hidden system file. Make sure you can VIEW hidden files. Then look again at your portable drive's root folder.

How can I remove SlotRadio advertisement from my Sandisk Sansa Clip + 8Gb. I can't find any SlotRadio files in both UMS and MTP modes.


You will need to manually reinstall the firmware from the Sansa Website


Current version is 01.02.15 (at this date 1/30/11)

On your clip the version number may be followed with an "a"


Your clip should be at least 50% charged or greater before following these steps


DO NOT use the Sansa Updater


1. Download the current firmware for your Clip+ from the Sansa Website

2. Save the zipped firmware (clipplus01.02.15.zip) to a folder you can easily locate (Downloads)


3. Create a new folder naming it what you wish.. (Sansa Firmware)


4. Open the downloaded zipped file(clipplus01.02.15.zip) using something like Winrar

5. Delete the file clpp_data.dat (This is the slot radio ad)

6. Extract/unzip the remaining file clppa.bin to the new folder (Sansa Firmware)


7. Plug in your Sansa Clip


8. Drag and drop (copy) the clppa.bin file into the internal memory or root of the clip


9. Unplug the clip from the USB port on your PC


10. The firmware will update and the media will refresh.. and you will no longer have the Slot radio Ad on your clip


Good luck


I have three clips.. 2 of the 2 gb.. 1 of the 4 gb and now a plus 8 gb.. and yes..I too found the banner ad annoying as all get out.

I have a sansa clip 4gb. I used Windows Media Player to convert CD tracks to wav, but I can't get them to play on my clip. It freezes every time. What's the problem?


Change the Rip Format in Windows Media Player to mp3 instead - WAV's take up too much space, and the player will only play its own WAV's that it creates using the record feature anyways. For regular music files, you always want mp3 format.

How do i synchronize my subscribtion


Hi,
I'm not sure what's the subscription service to which you are subscribed. However I've given you the steps below. Try whatever suits for you.
This error typically occurs when the DRM licensed files have expired. 

SOLUTION 1 - Songs ripped from an audio CD 
If the songs were ripped from a CD using Windows Media Player, modify the Rip Music settings


SOLUTION 2 - Songs downloaded from music subscription service 
If the songs were downloaded from a music subscription service (e.g., Napster, Rhapsody, Best Buy music store, etc.), follow these steps:  
1. Make sure that your account subscription is updated and active. 
2. Put the device in MTP mode and connect to the computer, then log in to your music subscription account. 
3. Renew the licenses of your tracks 
For Rhapsody: 
On the Rhapsody console, right-click on your device and select License 
 

1. Check the date & time on your PC & on your mp3 player. They should be one and the same. 2. You need to synchronize your device with rhapsody once in every 30 days. It's a must. Failing to do so, you will not be able to play music in your mp3 player. Here are a few a steps to synchronize your device with rhapsody: 1.Open Rhapsody / Best Buy Digital Music Store and sign in 2.Connect your mp3 player to the computer 3.Go to My Account --> Update Track Licenses 4.Transfer a track to your device 5.Disconnect your device and enjoy music on the go!
3. Here is a link to get the Sansa Firmware updater to update the firmware for your device automatically: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 
4. Click on this links if you are asked to synchronize your device with rhapsody? http://reclisten.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/reclisten.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=6606&tabName=tab3 

For others: 
Contact music subscriber for instructions on how to renew as they vary.

SOLUTION 3 - Rename the Windows DRM folder 

NOTE:  The Windows DRM (Digital Rights Management) folder contains licenses for secure media files such as your subscription tracks. 

STEP 1 - Edit the folder options of the PC to show the hidden files      
Windows XP: 
1. Double-click My Computer
2. On the Menu bar, click Tools > Folder Options, and then click the View tab. 
3. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to select Show hidden files and folders
4. Under Hidden files and Folder, click to clear Hide protected operating system files (Recommended) check box. 
5. Click Apply, and then OK

Windows Vista: 
1. Double-click Computer
2. Click the Organize button at the upper left corner. 
3. Click Folder and Search options. 
4. Click the View tab and select Show hidden files and folders
5. Click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box. 
6. Click Apply, and then OK

STEP 2 - Rename the DRM folder 
1. Double-click My Computer > C: > Documents and Settings > All Users
2. Right-click the DRM folder and select Rename
3. Rename this as OLDDRM
4. Run the subscription service program you are using and renew the licenses to recreate the DRM folder with new licenses. 

STEP 3 - Synchronize your device once more on MTP mode 


SOLUTION 4 -  Format the player under Windows Media Player
