Kinney,
Let me know if you have any success. I used to have a Sansa Clip and I'm pretty 
sure I tested sync with it when I was working on it, so it should work with 
that!

Yes.  I have no problems doing that.

I currently have the mount point defined in /etc/fstab as "/mnt/clipzip" 
and that's where the device mounts automatically now when I plug it into 
the computer.  I define the device in /etc/fstab using its UUID.

Having said that, I have also tried mounting it manually with "mount 
/dev/sdb /mnt/clipzip", for ex., but the results are the same.

I'll check this out when I get home tonight.

Again, thanks for your patience and persistence.

My wife has a Sansa Clip, not a Clip Zip.  I think I'll try connecting 
it tonight and see how it goes with that device.  I'm beginning to think 
my problems have to do with the particular model I'm using.



Cheers!
