A week ago I bought the (new) Sansa Fuze +. I’ve had a older m240 1GB sansa player that has been a tank, always works great. I recently bought the Fuze + because they do not sell the Fuze anymore in stores, and I was interested in something with the FM recording feature and more storage.
Come to find out when trying the FM recording feature there is glitches every few second to 30 seconds. It isn’t just a slight pause it actually leaves a split second of the recording out. I would like to fix this problem.
I was on the phone with a tech person and they just had me download the 01.30.10a (had 01.27.10a on it) firmware which did not help. The tech rep told me that they (Sansa) is aware of this problem and they hope to have it fixed. He couldn’t give a me a real date, he hoped by December, but I won’t hold my breathe. Also when I asked if they had this feature working in the lab they tested these units in before they went to market, if they worked. He said yes, but when I asked then why the one I purchased does not, he blamed it on the content I loaded onto the Fuze + possibly making it work this way.
I have unti the end of January to return it if I don’t like it, I bought three, they were on sale. One of the users of one of the Fuzes will be using the FM recording feature. I would really like to get the problem fixed by then. Otherwise I think I might take it back and shop online for an older Fuze model with the wheel controls.
