1.02.18A is the version on the one in my hand. Where would I go to find FM recording if I have it?

Go to FM Radio, then when tuned to a station, press Down, and Recording is the last item in that context menu.

Can you browse the Clip+ when connected to the Chromebook? You don't need to use the updater software as long as you an access the Clip+ as a drive to put files onto. Just drop the firmware file (available under "manual installation" on the firmware info page - use the download for all regions link) into the root of the Clip+. Disconnect, and it should start updating. The instructions are on that page.

I could never get the updater to work so I did it manually and it worked fine.
Didn't think about a manual update. Anyway, I just upgraded one of my Clip+s to 18A and FM record is there. Then I went to my Clip+ with 15A and guess what? FM record is there also. So I have no idea when it was added. I'll have to research it.

Years later, I'm still loving and using my Clips. On the go, they're my primary audio device. I also use them at home hooked up to a speaker.

Anyway, thanks for heads up and getting me to update the OP

You're very welcome. Yeah, I have no idea when it was added either. I initially had the original firmware (don't recall the number, either 9 or 12, I think) and I'm pretty sure it wasn't there then. I'm one of those people who has to look at all available menu options on a device and I didn't remember ever seeing back when I got it.

I'm having trouble finding an inexpensive non-bluetooth 3.5mm-connected speaker that's at least somewhat portable, powered but rechargeable, and doesn't sound like crap. I can use the aux input on my Grace Mondo (I love that thing) but even though I have the battery pack for that, it's a bit much when I just need a speaker.

I have this speaker and use it with my Clips. I like it quite a bit and it sounds great to me.

YW - mine has a mini USB charging port, the same as my Clips. That way, I only need one USB cable for charging both devices when on the go.

BTW - this isn't necessarily the best corded mini speaker out there. There are others with higher ratings. Keep in mind that newer speakers will have micro USB ports. That would necessitate the use of two different USB cables (mini & micro) for charging.

I just looked at a Clip Zip, and that supports FM recording. The Clip Sport doesn't.

I like my Zips best for general use, but use the Sport for audiobooks because of the great battery life. In all other respects, the Sport seems inferior.

Has anyone tried the Jam?

SanDisk has been dumbing down the line. The Sport lost features that the Zip had and the Jam lost even more features. The pinnacle, feature-wise, was the Zip.

Not sure when I would ever use it, but it's good to know just in case.

Oh my. By installing Rockbox firmware on my Clip+ and some partition wizardry, I'm using a 64GB SDXC card in it. (Reformat the SDXC card so that it has one Primary FAT32 partition, as XC cards are initially exFAT which it can't read. Rockbox allows you to get past the database limits of the original firmware and overcomes the "speed issues" of using a Class 10 card.)

I hated Rockbox when I first tried it, but it really grew on me over several hours of playing with it last night.

If you decide to try it, go with the Dev release, not the Stable release. The Dev version is actually stable at the moment, and the Stable version is comparatively ancient with fewer features. The current manual for RB for the Clip+ contains info on menus and features that aren't in the Stable version. (Took me a while to figure that out and update.)

Rockbox also includes a bootloader that allows you to load into the original firmware at any time (shut down, then hold left while turning back on.) Super handy, that.

How does it work with audiobooks? Are there any improvements over the stock audiobook player?
