Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

You can just set the region for the player to Europe, the go to radio options and change the region to USA. This will change the radio to the US system but get rid of the slotradio ad.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I am now very satisfied with the Fuze!

 

What's wrong with it? Nothing! I'm just extremely glad that stupid video problem was finally fixed. Now I have found absolutely nothing wrong with it. The only thing I don't like is not the slotRadio icon, but the fact that the message that comes up stays up for like 5 seconds, and you can do nothing about it. That is all. Great update!

Seriously, that's it? After all this time, this is the best they could do? This has got to be the biggest two-finger salute to their customers I've yet seen. We get an advert for a pointless music service as an update to the firmware. 

 

Oh yes, they went all out to fix a video bug on a music player (which has a 1.9" screen) too. Way to go guys. You lazy sods.

 

Major fail.

You might not appreciate the fix, but the video bug was a major annoyance to many users.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I swear, am I the only one that likes this firmware update? So they put an extra icon on the main menu. Big whoop! Don't press it and you'll be okay.

 

By the way, what is this enhancement of slotRadio? I don't have a slotRadio card, so I can't find out.

So you're happy that the firmware came out with all the new features and bug fixes that it gained? Wasn't hoping for anything more than what we got?

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

The video bug was something that had to be fixed.  It caused the player to hang.  No matter what the size of the screen is.  IMO the fuze does a good job of displaying video.

 

For those of us who happen to like slotradio, it's a good addition.

 

Unfortunately, it didn't include everything that others had hope for.

Look, just be happy of it's newfound stability! For a while, I have not really had the sense of stability with this thing. It was glitchy, and fairly annoying. I'd rather have a stable mp3 player than to have a lot of features and have it be unstable, like the last firmware. I'm really standing up for Sandisk now because instead of features for this firmware, they fixed most, if not all the bugs and glitches. And what's so bad about the slotRadio icon? It's not an ad... well, not really.

 

Thank you, Sandisk.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

The video "hang on shutdown" was easily bypassed with a single click.  I missed the video resume feature that was omitted in the .26 revision.  This has been repaired with the latest build.

 

Unless you've spent some time working with the Slot Radio player, I understand where many mixed emotions may be coming from.  Once you try the device, and get a feel for it, the SlotRadio "experience" is a lot of fun.  It's a welcome addition to the Fuze.

 

It you've tried Pandora or Yahoo streaming music, it's similar.  You have something constantly new, without cluttering your favorites in memory.  Additionally, you can swap back to a favorite microSD card at will.  I like the SR machine, as it's built like a tank like the e200.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Should start my first post by saying I love my Fuze and have been very happy with it since I bought it. As far as the update, I appreciate that you fixed the replay gain bug so it handles replay gains beginning with a '+' sign properly (which strangly isn't mentioned in your list of bug fixes). But as others have mentioned, when I select Replay Gain in the music options, either the screen goes white and it reboots, or it just freezes up. I have V2 of the firmware. Hope this can get fixed soon.
