The lock function is important for the Fuze+, since the touchpad is very easy to trigger accidentally. As above, a brief press of the power button (the decimal point might be missed there- it's about a half-second press, longer than a tap, to activate of turn off the lock function.
This was changed in the firmware updates, but isn't clear in the User Guide, which was based upon the original firmware version. The original lock function was activated by the touchpad, an odd arrangement in retrospect.

Over a year after purchase and it still pretty much sucks:
-Poor UI, even after improvements with firmware
-Long start up, which does not resume playback--often times I start it, forget about it because it takes so long, it turns off, lather rinse repeat.
-err's playing music off microSD, all of a sudden music is replaced by loud buzzing in my ear
-freezes and lags
So now I have a Galaxy s2 phone, and it is for sure a Fuze+ killer. Those of you looking for an alternative, the Samsung Galaxy players that just came out might be a good alternative: video, variety of format support, expandable integrated microSD, full touchscreen rather than pointless buggy touch controls just because it's what the cool kids are doing. AND my earphones will actually stay in the jack on my Galaxy, I mean, come on Sansa, how hard is it to make your 3.5mm jack standard to my earphones dont constantly come unplugged?

It's a year and a quarter since I bought and th4 48 GB (16 + 32 SD card) it is now available for $130... half of what I paid. Still a disaster.
"The lock function is important for the Fuze+, since the touchpad is very easy to trigger accidentally."
No doubt. The touchpad is so hyper senstiive (let's be clear, it's actually the math in the software because the more sensitive the better if you know what the heck you're doing in handing events) that we need a lock function to read 1 out of every 10 events just to navigate.
It's now 7 1/2 months since 02.38.06... the last firmware release. Obviously Sansa is sending a clear message to their customers to never again pruchase a Sansa device.
Sansa, I am listening and receiving your message loud and clear.

"I love my Fuze+. At about $80 for the 8GB version, I'd buy another tomorrow if this one broke."
It's a great device at 8 Gigabytes. But it was marketed to support collections up to 48 Gigabytes and it fails completley.
I hate my Sansa Fuze+ . At $260 for the 48 GB version (16 + Sansa 32 card), I'd use it tomorrow if Sansa ever got it working.
Since you can buy the 16 + 32 now for $130, I've effectively been paying Sansa $10 a month to get something that I could buy now for $130. That's a $10.00 per month Sansa brick in my desk drawer.
A $10.00 per month Sansa brick that I run into once every few months when I check for a firmware update. For some reason, it really makes me remember the name of the Sansa brand.

I hate my Fuze+ I would throw it out in the yard. But I think I'll take it back and get my money back. I just bought 2 days ago. Can't get it to work. This is a piece of cp. I have wasted 2 days trying to get it set up. It has been one problem after another. Rhaspody could not download songs because I needed a DRM file, and my computer has an anti=Virse protection on it and it would not let it unless I turned it off. No way am I doing that. After I tried to get song to download I ran my anti Viris and it told me to remove the programs, it had tried to loads some stuff on my computer that could have been spyware.
So now no songs, a bill from Rhaspody, and 2 wasted days of messing with this lovely thing.

THIS is pure garbage! It will not transfer a playlist with the heading of the playlist or in order like the old one did from windows media player. It hard to negotiate as well gettign to where you want to be. I wasted $55.00
