Wow . . .What’d I win? A 510MB SD card? Ooohhh!
All I can say about the tag issue is that it’s been discussed ‘ad nauseum’ on these boards and they just won’t read v1 or other versions of tags right. It’s not in the User’s Guide, but a lot of what I would call important or critical information is surprisingly missing from there also. Other mp3 players (maybe older?) and computer media players (WMP, Winamp, etc.) are more forgiving and will read a variety of tags.
But at least you now know how to fix it and prevent the problem in the future. It’s never a bad day when you learn something!
Thanks again for the tip.
It is much appreciated.
It’s all these little things that really tick me off when you look at them in their totality.
None of them, by themself, is an earth shattering problem but there just seem to be so many of them.
End users are essentially stuck with trial and error and web surfing as the first line of support
because the documentation is about as useful as screen doors on a submarine.
With my e280, I had to use trial and error to find out that *.pla playlists MUST be UNICODE files
or the e200 series won’t recognize them.
With my Fuze I find that the *.pla playlists no longer work in MSC mode.
Furthermore, converted *.m3u playlists do NOT support the extended ASCII character set so
I had to manually change “Motörhead” to “Motorhead” after converting the *.pla playlists.
Naturally, NONE of this is ever documented ANYWHERE!
I could go on forever.
I just get the feeling that SanDisk is run by a whole lot of C- students who just don’t care.
It wouldn’t surprise me to find that all SanDisk managers actually used iPods.
