I have just bought a Sansa Clip+ 8GB. I have not yet upgraded the firmware, but I do find an odd volume situation, with which I hope someone can help. The volume for music actually heard in the ear phones can be smoothly dropped from 100% to zero & closely follows the visual position of the volume bar, but for FM radio the volume drops from 100% to about 50% and then remains at 50% in the ear phones even when the volume bar decreases smoothly to zero. When the volume bar actually hits zero the sound does go off in the ear phones. I have tried reducing the volume to near zero in music mode & then switching to FM. The volume bar stays near zero but the volume in the earphones jumps to 50%. I can tell this because as the bar visually gets longer, the volume in the earphones remains constant until the bar reaches 50% & then the sound increases as normal.
Can anyone suggest a remedy for this FM volume quirk?
