We suggest you update the firmware through the Sansa Firmware Updater. There is even a how-to video that explains the process. If for any reason the Sansa Firmware Updater does not work for you, feel free to continue by trying the more "computer savy" steps described below.

When I saw the following in the release notes:
Inconsistent battery life for music playback
I thought you had fixed the bad battery life issue which was introduced with the 1.02.09 firmware (10-12 hours max with music). But the battery life is just as bad with 1.03.02. It did fix the lockups when using random playback though. Can the battery life be fixed to be as good as it was with 1.01.06. I got 20+ hours with that one.

Hi...I just wanted to ask where do you find the links to download directly the firmware? I tried to browse http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/ but it seems it's not possible.
Is there a way to look for updates without using the sansa updater?

mmmm.... you seem honest: Just read this thread, you will find links at the very first post.
