Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

An immediate question, is disk number now supported in Ogg and FLAC?

 

Thanks for the new update though, it looks like it will be a significant improvement.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I'm very thankful and all for the update, don't get me wrong, but I fail to see what sansafix was talking about when he/she said that the next firmware update would make us forget about rockbox.
