What I've found that's worked well is that if the internal memory has about 1 MB or less storage left, when I safely disconnect the Clip+ from the computer, there isn't enough internal storage left for the Clip+ original firmware to refresh the media, it states this on the Clip+ screen, then shuts off. Then, I just turn the Clip+ back on, it loads Rockbox, and I bypass the extended media refresh business. So, basically, I have all of the music on the internal storage that I like the most that I'll rarely want to delete, and I use my microsdhc card more to move music on and off of, which doesn't affect the refresh issue, as long as there's about 1 MB of space left on the internal storage. If for some reason, I feel like moving an album off of internal storage, I just take out some scratch paper, figure out how much space that'll free up, then move an album from my microsdhc card to internal storage that'll leave about 1 MB space free on the internal storage. I've been doing this for well over a year now, and it works well. I sometimes like to add an album and head out for a walk or want to listen right away, and this workaround makes this possible. I'm used to it, and it's not too much of a hassle until the USB function is stable with Rockbox. I recommend you give it a try.
