What's your particular problem with track numbers?

 

It would be nice if the Fuze read 1/12, 2/12 -style track numbers, but I'm not losing any sleep over it, since mp3tag takes seconds to add leading zeros.


Yeah that's my problem lol. My track tags are "1/8" for example and they are read as "18."

 

And I don't want to have to change my whole music collection for something that can easily be fixed on the fuze's part.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I have just installed the latest upgrade... It looks like the only reason SanDisk issued it is the shortcut to SlotRadio card to promote sales.($39.99)

No text reader, no direct shortcut to a choice between folder and playlist browsing. Very disappointed to say the list.

OK - just noticed: now when I switch the Fuze on it goes to the Radio screen (if I switch it off while listening to the  radio) without refreshing database. That's good.

 

 

Any ideas about bookmarks and textreader in the future? (here I'm going to be annoying.. Smiley Happy )

 

P.S. Hm... my shortcut to SlotRadio disappeared without any trace after the reset of the Fuze... How come - I almost got used to it, being bright and red and inviting... Smiley Happy

You could put the albums on the Fuze and change the tags in the files on the Fuze, right after you transfer them,  in about 2 seconds with mp3tag.  It's really not a very strenuous workaround.

It's hard not to see the new slotradio icon. It's bright red and placed between the music and video icons.

 

Is it just me or is the radio reception better?

Very annoying the this slot radio has been pushed onto my machine with out my having the option to refuse.   I have no interest in this gimmick and want it off my menu.  Sansa;  I will never buy another one.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Are you kidding me?  I like the cool red SR icon!  Cool "blurb" mask when the center button is depressed without an SR card mounted too.  Seriously, be glad that you don't have that goofball "treasure chest" icon in the main menu.

 

Personally, I am thinking of adding the lil' monsta icon instead of the EQ for "settings.  Hmm, that's an interesting thought...

 

Now, let's pop in a cool jazz SR card.  D'oh!  I'll have to wait for that one.

 

Now for the piece de resistance!  Yes!!  Video Resume patch is successful.  You can now zip between video files like before.  Make some popcorn, it's video time.

The fact that the fuze is not able to read a simple / in a track tag is annoying though. I wouldn't have a problem doing the process, but that's not how I organize my files. I use x/x because I know that that track is part of an album with x tracks so if something's missing, I know the real amount of tracks.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Found another bug or limitation:

 

In folder view, if a mp3 file name is longer than 80 characters including spaces and file extension, and is non-english (cyrillic in my case) - you'll get a non-readable mix of squares, tildes, capital english letters and numbers... 

 

Ex:

Любовные истории - Там, на моей стороне Луны - Лучшие песни Русского Радио 9.mp3

 Will look like this in fuze’s folder view:

 

N  ~1.MP3

mag1230 - funny you saying about the radio reception getting better. I've got the same impression. After rescan the Fuze added a couple of stations I didn't knew existed.

As to the new and shiny radioslot icon it disappeared with no trace - probably after I reset Fuze to World bandwave.

 

Alexz - has this distortion appeared AFTER you upgraded firmware or it exists on the previous firmware version as well? I never noticed it as I'm always trying to transcribe Russian names using Latin letters. Actually, if I choose to run my Fuze interface in default English, it can't read Russian letters at all - never mind 80 digit limitation. Программисты у Сандиска такие...
