You're talking about the Tags > Mpeg option screen?
Apart from that I already use those settings (it's basically the standard config in MP3Tag I believe). I always put in the lyrics into the ID3v2 tags (using the 'UNSYNCEDLYRICS' field, and I also put the CD cover (max 50KB) into the ID3v2 tags. I'm not sure whether you do these things.
My feeling is that the changes made by Sansa in this latest firmware have basically broken the MP3 ID3v2 tag handling with 'large' tags (being that I have the lyrics and the CD cover in there). Not only does ReplayGain not work for me for most tracks (as its not even detected that they're present), but many albums no longer display the CD cover, and even in albums which do display the CD cover, various tracks do not. This was not the case on the previous firmware (but I don't wish to go into firmware downleveling to do further testing on that).

First of all, when importing things into windows media player (which is what I use to sync my fuze) there's an option there to "apply volume leveling labels to all files." Isn't that exactly what I'm looking for? Why do I have to use media monkey?

I try to use replay gain on my Fuze, and it goes to a white screen and locks up??? I have version 2.02.28A of the firmware installed...Everything else seems to run smooth...I flashed the firmware twice to make sure it was not a bad write...Any ideas?

You're not the 1st to report this problem with the latest firmware update. Could be a bug with the most recent release. Until they (SanDisk) gets it sorted out, it might be prudent to 'back-date' to the previous f/w version.

OK, I'm new to the Fuze AND to Replay Gain AND especially to Media Monkey. My Fuze contains about 3 GB of music. I'd like to apply the Replay Gain feature, but I haven't a clue how to proceed. Here's what I've done so far:
Downloaded and installed Media Monkey
Transferred entire music library to Media Monkey (I was using WMP)
I analyzed the volume levels for all the music by leaving the process running overnight.
Now, the question is: how do I upload just this new volume/replay gain information to my existing sets of playlists on my Fuze? I have no clue.
I've done everything else without the Fuze connected to the computer, and I have generated a long list of Replay Gain values. So how do I update just those values on my existing music?
Thanks for the help!

I guess that Replay Gain will only level a number different tracks processed through some program like MediaMonkey to a similar loudness level so that it feels like “all files are created equal”, but it will not provide some weak single silent MP3 (lame) files with additional power since it supposedly doesn't change the original audio data.
