Step by Step Sansa Clip Sport Plus SD Upgrade Mod


I bought another cheap clip to demonstrate step by step how to open, dump the original card, flash a new card, reassemble and finally reformat. I end up upgrading to 64gb in this video but larger cards should theoretically work (unless there’s some hard limit coded into the firmware I haven’t found yet). In the end you will have as much internal memory as you want in the only clip model with built in bluetooth!
*As always ymmv and any damage incurred in attempting this mod is your responsibility

  2. Could you do a video on replacing the battery?

  3. Great job! But here's a radical idea, why don't they just make them expandable. Like they were over a decade ago.

  4. I'm looking for a reliable simple mp3 with an insanely long battery life and a massive storage capacity. Do you think we can mod these Sansa players with a large battery?

  5. Was wondering if you can help wit mines …i was able to put songs on my sd n play them on my sandisk but sent back to the company n now get it back n wont read my sd i notice that they upgraded the firmware from the 1.10
    To a 1.14…so dont no of that has anything to do

  6. I've got a project idea….
    3d print something to widen the clip, wire a spare battery in so it has double the life. lol
