Loving this Sansa Fuze, it is amazing quality and flawless as far as my experience goes so far. I have been following a few topics here for a while especially the database capacity. Mine is the 8Gb and have fitted a 16Gb SDHC all without problems of any kind. I have just been using the search facility and can not find how you tell the capacity of the database, I read 2000 songs and 8000 but no idea how to tell what is available on my own Fuze.
I bought it in Feb 2010 with firmware v01.01.11f loaded but I updated to v01.02.28f and have just gone to v01.02.31a. I ‘record’ music at 256Kbps using Mp3 & windows media player, Windows XP pro os and utilise MTP method. Anyone know what my database size may be 2000, 4000 or 8000 song capacity or whatever value? There appears to be nowhere on the device this info is displayed. I know reformatting the device will bring it to the latest spec but am hoping that with the version of firmware on the fuze at delivery, will mean it is already at max capacity of x songs? I really do not want to have to format the whole deal and to have to spend the next day just reloading unless I absolutely have to, in order that I can fully use my 16Gb SDHC card.
Any pearls of wisdom from you experienced fuze wizzards will be very much appreciated. I have found items on the search which brush the subject here but no specific answere that I have found.
Cheers in advance Guys,
