It's not a bug, it's due to EU regs that Sandisk followed. I think it's a bit silly to have that reg but they did follow the law. Sandisk left an easy workaround though. The previous rev didn't have this setting at all (i.e. turn off the "high" mode for Europe).
Just make sure your FM tuner settings are for European useage. In the US we have FM freqs. on the odd decimal place (i.e. 0.1/0.3 etc.) instead of the even decimal (0.2/0.4 etc.). Glad they didn't couple the volume and freq. settings together. You'll like the fact that now your MP3s converted at the 44.1kHz setting will be close to correct pitch too (main reason I upgraded).

Gotcha. It makes sense now even though it's silly.
I didn't install .33 and .34 firmware but I am fairly sure that my .32 and the one I had before had a "high" mode under Volume settings in the European version. Unless I was using North American one without even knowing about that.

That's good, since there weren't any firmware releases with these numbers.
The EU volume compliance was only added with this latest (.35) version.

That's a soft reset. I suppose the hard reset would be a format either via pc or the clip.

It's just a reset. There really isn't a hard or soft variety any more, especially with the newer players. In the case of the e200 series (and previous) players, a 'soft' reset was holding the power button down for 15 - 30 secs. Some stronger medicine, in the form of a 'hard' reset was possible with these players where they had a replaceable battery. Pull the back off, remove the battery and let the offending gobbledygook dissipate from the memory stores by leaving the battery out for a few minutes. Re-install the battery, and now all the bad stuff has melted away leaving your precious Sansa player a veritable virgin again.
With the newer players, non-replaceable batteries and sealed cases, a 'hard' reset is impossible, so there's no need to differentiate between the two anymore.

A hard reset is not necessarily taking the battery out. Usually, for example, on cell phones, a specific combination of buttons will hard reset the device, restoring it to factory settings. In the clip's case that would be a format.
