After transferring some of my MP3 folders to my Sansa Fuze, I noticed some strange names for folders and filenames when viewed on the Sansa Fuze. I suspected that there were some character limitations but I couldn’t find out where they were documented, so I decided to do some testing myself.
My testing indicates that the maximum character limits are:
- Folder names: 28
- File names: 96
To me, these seem to be strange limits and I have no idea what the limiting factors were (I would have expected limits like 31 and 127, which correspond to 6 and 7 binary bit limits).
Guideline : Keep your folder names short! I don’t think you need to worry about your filenames.
