I recently got a new 8gig Fuze (with the latest firmware) and I’m running into my first trouble with it. I notice that when listening to an audiobook from NetLibrary, once you hit the 3.5 hour mark (approximately) you begin to hear a clicking in the audio. The odd thing is, when the backlight is on, I don’t hear it. However, as the time increases the problem becomes more pronounced and it gets to the point where you cannot listen to the audiobook.
The book I noticed it in first is about 8 hours long total and the CD quality WMA file (the one I used) is 109 Mb in size. I tried other books and the same problem exists, first showing up between 3.5 and 4 hours into the story. The thing I have not tried yet (I’ll do so after I post this) is to download the smaller sized, radio-quality WMA file. The other thing about this problem I need to mention is that my audiobooks are stored on an external 2Gb MicroSD card (not in internal memory). I’m also going to test transferring them to internal memory to see if that helps.
Has anyone else noticed this? I searched the forums but didn’t find any other mentions of it. Could someone else give this a shot and let me know if they experience the same? I guess my other question is, should the Fuze be able to handle a file of this length without such a problem? Has anyone had issues with external memory cards like this? Ay help or guidance is extremely appreciated.
