I had somewhere around 104 images in different folders in my
Photo folder in the root of my Fuze+ and everything was fine,
until one day I could'nt add more pics to the fuze.
Neither the Fuze or the added memory card were anywhere close
to full, with more than 2,8 and 14,3 GB free space.
No matter what I do the player refuces to see any more picsthat gets
put on there.
I've tried renaming stuff, changing directory to the memory card, removing
the Write Protection on all files on the Fuze+ and even reformated the whole
If I delete the pics they disappear and when I put them on there again they
show up again, but only the 104 pics I had when the trouble began.
All my images I've decreased in size manually and none of them have any
strange name that might cause the problem. All are made for the 320 pixel
New folders gets recognized and the player displays the names corectly,
but no new pics shows up at all...
Have I run into the maximum file limit or some other limit?
I've added more music and album arts lately without problems.
Anyone got any Idea what's going on?
Did I cause a rift in the space time by storing pics also on my memory card,
which acctually worked flawlessly?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Okay. I've still got the same problem...
* Does anybody know which file is responsible for the Image Database on a
Sansa Fuze +?
I'd like to delete (temporarily move to a safe location) it to see if my image file
index gets rebuilt...

i think its the *.dat files on the root of the device
as seen when connecting in msc mode (you won't see them in MTP mode)
sounds weird and i havn't put that many pics on mine so i dunno what to suggest
other than what you already thought of (reset/delete the database)

I suppose you could try deleting the FastJPG folders, as well. I somehow doubt that might help, but it's worth a try.
Tired of the Sansa Media Converter? Try Video4Fuze! It can create smaller videos than SMC, and is WAY more reliable!!!!

Hmmm. Tried both of your suggestions and yet another reformat and Fabric Settings.
I simply can't add any more pics to the Sansa Fuze+.
I would like to be able to reset the player one step further then the Format of it achives,
however that can be possible. (I've read about others having similar experiences here.)
Anyway, this is the last issue I have with the Sansa Fuze+. I have managed to solve all
other troubles I've had with it, even managed to give all my album the correct album arts!
Eventhough the last three album arts did put up quite a fight before they showed up...
I might be a simpel individual, but now I have all my greatest music, in high quality and
some video concerts all stored on one Fuze+. I never thought that would be possible!
All my "Reference category" music!
I'm determined to eventually solve this Image issue, just so I truethfully can say that the
Sansa Fuze+ is a brilliant player!
I love it!
Any more suggestions concerning the Images Issue would be welcome!

How large are the images? If they are any larger than what the screen size is, you're wasting memory and is probably causing the inability to add more. Just as there is a finite number of songs you can put put the device in the form of a database limitation, it logically follows that there is a finite amount of space allocated to pictures/images. In fact, it could be that these are catalogued in the same database as the music info, and so you have reached the limit.
I would try reducing the size of a few of these images and see if it frees up any space to where you can add a few more. If it works, then you have solved your issue.

All my images I have reduced in size manually in Photoshop, so they are all
320 x 240 pixels and probably as small as they can reasonably be.
104 pics - 3,31 MB in 16 folders
It is definately not a problem with disc space or number of files, as I've reformated
and tried adding more images there when the player has been empty of music
I have also added a lot of music and videos after this image problem appeared,
and adding those works perfectly.
If I sort my Images by Date 9 of them gets sorted into the Unknown Date category
- meaning the player don't know when they were added - , so there definately is
something wrong somewhere...
I am super cautious when mucking about with anything computer related like a
mp3-player. I even had a Back Up copy of all the files on the Fuze+ taken before
the image issue started and I've even tried copying them back to the Fuze+ right
after a new reformat. Without any luck...
It's just like the Fuze+ won't update the images index somehow.
I know this is a rather small problem, but I'd really like to understand how the
player works, before trying with RockBox and what not.
I really would like to use the Image function properly, as it adds significantly to
my listening experience.
Is there really no method to return the Fuze+ to it's original fabric settings "Level 0"
reformat? Formating it and updating the Firmware the normal way still leaves
traces of my earlier images and folders...

I put all of my pics straigt into my Photo folder in the Fuze+, without any folders, and
when I looked there the player froze! After starting it again I tried adding some more
I made with the Video4Fuze.
That folder and about 20 new pics showed up (even if the pics were a bit small.
Some progress has been made and I might be able to rebuild and expand my Image
I consider the issue solved and will report back in a few days, when I've worked some
more with it!

Then the formatting is not completing correctly. Are you doing it with the on-board Format option in the Settings menu on the player? There should be no user-added content (or remnants of same) afterward.

I don't believe the player is designed to (or can) handle multiple folder/file hierarchies within the Photos folder, or at the very least it appears as there is some sort of limitation on this, as you seem to have discovered.
If you can reduce the number of folders, or eliminate them altogether you'll probably be able to see all your pics.
