"it refreshes the media and it takes forever, like 2-3 minutes"
My Clip has developed a bad habit recently, and refreshes the media after each time I connect it to the pc for charging. It does this even when I change nothing on the player. My guess is that this may be a Windows fault though, and Windows is inserting or changing a tiny systems file on the the player(this last time as soon as I connected the player I noticed the player display say writing). I guess I should use a power only cable when I want to just charge via pc. I could also charge via wall charger or usb battery pack. The database refresh takes a bit of time but isn't that painful. I know how to avoid it, but am curious about why it recently started happening.
