5.0 out of 5 stars Needs Instructions, August 30, 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Black mini Clip Mp3 player (Electronics)
This is a great little player; but it should come with these simple instructions:-
Start Up Instructions for Miniclip
1. Insert micro flashcard into Miniclip, making sure the card is extended all the way inside the Miniclip and not sticking out at all. It will click into place once it is locked all the way in.
2. Make sure the Off-On switch is turned to Off.
3. Connect Miniclip to a Microsoft computer USB port using cable supplied.
4. Leave Miniclip in the computer overnight and have the computer turned on so the Miniclip battery can charge up.
5. Now turn the Off-On switch on the Miniclip to On and your computer should say “Loading drivers” onto your Miniclip. This should conclude with a message on your computer to the effect that the drivers were successfully loaded on the Miniclip.
6. Almost there, copy the MP3 songs you want to hear onto the Miniclip using Microsoft Windows Explorer.
7. Plug in your ear buds, turn off the Miniclip and disconnect the Miniclip from the computer (this is like re-booting the Miniclip after initializing it). FINALLY, turn the Off-On switch back On and press the Start/Pause switch. ENJOY.

this didn't work for mine. Mine will only play if connected to my computer, does any one have any suggestions?

It needs a mini memory flash card. Once I charged mine up and installed the flash memory card, it was ready to take recordings and play them back. I have two of these. Sorry you are having trouble with yours.

Well I have an eight gig SanDisc card that I used with it, but it still doesn't play unless I connect to my pc. Is it supposed to be able work without a card?

John K says:
So, pardon this stupid question, but I assume you charged this device for a day or so first. Right? And you transferred some music to play onto the flash memory, right? If after that, it still does not work, I do not what more to say. Sorry.

About a full day( most of the afternoon and well into the night) and already had music on the card. Thanks anyway

best solution would be to put your micro sd card into a different reader, plug *that* reader into your PC, format the card (just like you would a regular disk), then re-insert into the MP3 player.

Also, technically (and it doesn't much matter, really), but when drivers load, they are not loading to what you have just plugged into the computer, it's the computer recognizing the device you've just plugged in as a "generic USB reader" or something, then installing the USB drivers for the USB port needed to make that device work on your PC. This is true for everything you plug into a USB port.

Again, this won't change whether the device works or not.

Good review, BTW, it always helps to have hands-on descriptions of what works best for these little devices!
