Title: Sansa Clip+ firmware - no longer hosted by Sandisk?
Post by: IdahoBlind on September 28, 2021, 06:04:47 AM
Hi all

I've been trying to find the clip+ firmware so I can install RB on an old Clip+. I've tried:

https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/300/~/updating-the-sansa-clip-sport-%2F-clip-zip-%2F-clip%2B-%2F-clips-firmware (https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/300/~/updating-the-sansa-clip-sport-%2F-clip-zip-%2F-clip%2B-%2F-clips-firmware)

However it doesn't seem to have the file. Just refreshes the page when I click on the respective link.

Also tried:

https://forums.sandisk.com/t/sansa-clip-firmware-update-01-02-18/49065 (https://forums.sandisk.com/t/sansa-clip-firmware-update-01-02-18/49065)

Again nothing.

Annoyingly I already have the clip zip firmware from an old install - but not this one. Can anyone help?

I'm starting to dig around on sketchy driver download sites with lots of ads...  :-[

Ok - well I took a chance on some french driver site. Dodged the adverts, and hopefully the viruses... and all sorted.

So the files are out there still.

No need for sketchy driver download sites. Use wayback machine. Version 01.02.18 firmware file is still available.

The download link on the SanDisk page works for me:

For some reason that link also doesn't work for me. Hmm.. wonder if it's a browser issue.

There is definitely some glitchiness, since I just tried it now and nothing happened, but if I pasted it into a new Chrome window it worked immediately.
