Re: Sansa Fuze+ Firmware 02.38.06 Manual updating failure

I've just updated to 02.38.06… Two things so far:

  • If Sansa is locked, is it logical to allow change volume up/down (side buttons)? I would say "No": almost every day I get the situation when Sansa is playing in my pocket it and volume down is accidentally pushed, I can't hear the music. So I need to get it out, add more volume and put it back.
  • Would it be logical to remember the last position in navigation menu and restore it after power on? I mean, if I have navigated to Music → Folders (it's already tricky, as one need to scroll to last item, please add cycle scrolling – then it would be just one press) and then long way down to necessary folder, then after I have switched Sansa off and turned on again, it remembers the song, but I can't return to last folder.

Ithink that both of your suggestions would be great if they were options people could toggle. Personally, I prefer starting up to the main menu. I also like being able to adjust volume despite being locked since I normally hold it in my hand while walking (imagine skipping five songs because you had to dodge a drunk on a motorcycle).

Go to Settings -> Customize Menu and set Looping: On. This enables wrapping around menus from last item to the first one. I turned this off on my device because it reacts erratically to my finger tapsSmiley Mad

I wish this update had worked. I dragged the file into it. But what is the root file? I looked it up but it did not help. I don't think what I did caused anything to happen. A bit frustrated.

Be sure you have your fuze+ in MSC mode.  Go to settings, USB Mode and select MSC.  Then drag your extracted firmware.sb file into the root directory of your fuze+, which should show up as a drive letter in windows explorer.  Shows up as K:\ on my computer, but yours will be different.  Once it's copied over to your fuze+ you just need to disconnect it in order to finish the update.  Right click on the fuze+ folder in windows and select eject from the menu before disconnecting to be on the safe side though.

 

Hope this helps.

FYI, unlike other Sansa players, the Fuze+ doesn't need to be in MSC mode. A firmware update can be done from either modes (MTP, MSC).

Tired of the Sansa Media Converter? Try Video4Fuze! It can create smaller videos than SMC, and is WAY more reliable!!!!

I guess Sandisk is trying to kill this line off, no new updates in over year.  I'm going to have to go over to the darkside and buy a ICrap

Don't do it!  Try a Cowon, that's my next choice when my Fuze+ eventually goes.
