bought my Sansa Fuze 8GB a couple of weeks ago, recently upgraded the firmware and I am very pleased by the device and the software.
except for the stuttering problem with VBR files, which will be fixed in the next version, there are only two things that are bugging me:
- when selecting an album, there is no play all option. There are quite a few “play all” options:
in the music root menu to play all files on the device.
in artist, album, genre - these are kinda useless, since they do the same as the first one.
in the artist -> artistname menu
in the genre -> genrename menu
but I am missing a play all button in:
the artist->artistname->albumname menu
the album->albumname menu
Currently you can only play files one by one using the album menues
It shouldnt be too much work to add these options, but would make navigating a lot better.
The second feature is minor compared to the first one, but would be a huge improvement too:
When I have some songs in the playback queue, and I browse through the music library,
it would be nice to have an option to add some songs to the queue instead of just replacing the whole playback queue like it is done currently.
For example when I have selected all files from an artist, but those are only a handful, I want to add more by another artist,
but the only way to do achive that is by playing the files and adding them to the go list. I’d like to add them while listening to the existing ones.
I’m not quite sure how this could be done… possibly with the menu button, since it doesnt do anything at all when browsing files.
I’m looking forward for the next firmware and hope at least the first one if not both features will be included.
Apart from this, Great work Guys, best device I’ve ever had !
Thanx a lot!
