If we assume you have a version 2 Fuze, because it is a recent purchase, upgrading it to the firmware offered from the updater software will give you a pretty red icon on your main menu (that is useless unless you buy a Slot Radio card) and it will remove functionality of a feature called replay gain that works in the shipping version of the firmware (came already on your fuze)
Other things may also stop working as you are used to, if you update to the currently offered firmware 2.0.0.028 through the updater.
I have not looked via the updater for a few days, but the gurus here seem to think it will be a few months before a new fixed firmware comes out.
If you are happy with your Fuze the way it is now, it is probably best to stick with it’s currently working firmware, unless you plan to buy “Slot Radio”: cards for it.
If you already have an extensive music collection and don’t need what Slot Radio offers - Maybe you won’t ever want to updrade the firmware.
It’s up to you… if you don’t like the firmware offered by the updater: currently it is a pain to back out of it to the version your Fuze shipped with… the updater doesn’t let you use it to go backwards… so it would be manual install to revert to the shipped version 18.104.22.168[/edit]
RE: Video4Fuze - It is easy to use and supports most formats of video you would have on your compute…
I use it and am very happy with Video4Fuze.
There is a link in the forums to download it.
I hope you love your Fuze (but not like a person loving another person!)
Just kidding there… it’s your’s to love or hate as you see fit.
