The firmware post doesn't list this as a 'known issue'.

 

But then it doesn't say it was fixed either.

same. I'll stick with it due to lack of money. But all these bugs+how darn easy to scratch the screen is+no official pouch.cover that shipped with it or is available is plan BS seeing as how scratchy it get's in NORMAL use. Lucky me I got a screen protector on it but not before 3 scratches in 2 days!

This version of firmware has following bugs:

  1. There is no option to choose method of locking, I prefer old one with keeping play touched.

This is not a "bug". And it's not new with this firmware update. The locking procedure was changed about 3 updates ago due to overwhelming requests and unhappiness with the way it was. Changing it to the power button was not only the majority of customer's preference, but also one that Sandisk could change and make everyone (except you and 2 others to date) happy.


 

Does this prevent such feature to be selectable in configuration?

 

What about other issues?

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.38.06

Bought a Fuze+ to replace a worn-out Fuze. I mostly use these for listening to audiobooks, usually in mp3 format.

 

I find that playback suddenly returns to the beginning during listening and when attempting to pause playback using the pause button (which is often unresponsive). Returning to my place in the book is excruciatingly slow since the books are hours in length.

 

Are there fixes for these problems in the works for an update?

No. But until there are more than 3 people desiring this 'feature', it's unlikely to be added (if it's even possible in the first place).

 

I was only responding to this issue.

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.38.06

First I want to thank SanDisk Cust Support and the Programmers for this Update. You saved me as a Loyal Customer as you will see below.

I wanted to Copy my Post here that I put into the "Fuze + Bookmarking in Podcasts"  Subject as to help Others here and there. Here is that post......

 

 

On a Positive note The Menu Structure is Greatly improved and the Larger display is easier to find podcasts and the Sorting is Better than the Older Fuze.  This all started because of the Aging Wearing out Thumb Wheel on the Older Black Fuse 8Gig which otrherwise was Still Working Perfically Great. Battery and all after 3 Years Plus of Constant Use!. So Finally Fixed. I ordered all my Needed Accessories from Amazon Yesterday and will now Register my Fuze+, The King Player of Podcasts!

Well I was about to Give up as a Long time Fuze 8gig Black Thumb wheel owner and take back my New Fuze + untill Sandisk Cust Support refered me to do the Firmware Update #02.38.06A MANUALLY, Not through the Sansa Updater. Also since I do Drag & Drop and also have an 8Gig uSD Card full of Podcasts that I should use  the FUZE + in USB Mode = MSC and not Auto the Default. 

I Tell you I was about to return my Fuze + Back to Best Buys (Had Gift Certificts ortherwiseI'd use Amazon) and now I'm happy to report I'm happy with the "RESUME" Feature as Long as you Follow the Rules.  #1 Use USB Mode MSC, #2  Always put Podcasts in A Root Folder titled "Podcasts". And #3 Get Use to the Touchie Touchpad.

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.38.06

It's getting there. But it's not there yet.

 

Have been waiting since last November for folder view.

 

I have approx 600 albums sorted into folders A,B,C etc by Artist. And then each Artist has their own folder. 

 

Marvelous, finally I can find an album called Zazu (artist name begins with V) without scrolling through 599 albums.

 

However once I get to an individual album - the tracks are in Alphabetic order.

 

Someone as Sandisk seems to have taken Folder View too literally.

 

I agree that using file names should be an option for talking books etc where the tags may not be 100% but for Music this is plain stupid.

 

p.s at least it boots a bit quicker now.

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.38.06

Using something called "folder view" and then expecting the songs to be sorted by tags is ridiculous.

Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.38.06

the folder view needs fixing.

I have loaded the player with lots of mp3 files in subfolders in /Music/ and the folder view says it's Empty.
