I recently thought I had figured out that my Fuse+ was just one big step away from being the perfect audio book reader like the Fuse. I thought it just needed bookmarks.
I had thought I had found how to make all books play in the audio books and in the correct order. The solution is to load the books into the player into the music section via Window Explore or Windows Media player and move this file from the music section to the podcast section. The Fuse+ seems to sorts the file and plays every book it sort based on the Mp3 File name. Files loaded into the player via Windows Explore pay based on the Mp3 title. This all still holds true.
I had seen, a few days back, when moving 3 or 4 books at once I would get an error message that the move could not be done due to not enough space. I would move these files one at a time and all would be OK. When I tried to move The Old Testament I got this same alarm. There was not enough space to sort and move this very large file. Since I had loaded this file in via Windows Media Player its play order was already perfect in the music section.
I looked at The Old Testament book in the album view in the music section and found the album display to be perfect for books. I had requested something like this display for books a while back and here it was. I had requested that the book menu not show the same icon by every title once the book had been selected. I had also asked earlier that the files be sorted by mp3 file name but show the mp3 title. This is what this display does already.
After moving the files around, as I had suggested earlier, everything would play in order but you could not see the titles anymore. Many books have titles like Chapter 1 or The Diary of a Nobody_Ch13, but many have titles that help the story like 18 - The Unexpected Happens or Jeremiah 1. I have tried to use a third-party software to fix some titles of book files. After an hour, I can only change the track number. I have used this software to renumber a few files. I cannot recommend downloading this software. Three of the five times I downloaded this software I got something other than the correct software and my computer was tweaked. I suggest waiting for SanDisk to fix this problem.
In the music section of the Fuse+ you can move any song to an existing play list. This is one very cool feature. If something like this could be done for books, where you could move an album to the book section, we may be able to change the directory a file is displayed in and not lose the titles. This would be great.
If you use the Fuse+ primarily as an audiobook reader try moving a book back into the music section and view under album. You could get close to the same idea just looking at a music album.
Q1. Would you like the album display for audiobooks?
Q2. If you could play music fast and slow would you move your books on your Fuse+ into the music section now?
Q3. If you could get to books quickly in the music section what would we lose by moving out of the podcast section?
Q4. Do you use the audiobooks menu created in the recent firmware upgrade? If so, how do you make use of it?
