I recently bought a 4g Fuze, from Woot, V2 firmware. I switched to .msc mode, and dropped about 3g of .mp3’s on it. Leaving it run, I found it with a dark screen, and locked up requiring holding the power button to reset. Playing it in the car, I found one particular song that would lock up the player–a reset would back up to a particular song about 4 or so spots back in the playlist, then when it hit the problem song the player would lock again. I got it home, and found a different song that does the same thing.
When I got home I formatted the player and upgraded to the latest firmware. I then expeimented with one of the problem songs, and found that if I selected that song to play, the screen would lock with the song information page halfway across the screen. If I selected play all with only that song available, the player would reboot rather than locking up. In either case, I was unable to delete the offending song from the player without hooking it to the computer.
I hope that at least there is something I’m missing about deleting this file–It appears to me that a song has to be playable to load it far enough that delete is an option. I really don’t care if there are some songs that won’t play as long as the player moves to the next song with minimum drama. If I have to delete these songs as I find them, that is annoying but acceptable if I can delete from the player.
Is there any way i can delete these songs when I don’t have access to a comptuer>
Is there any way I can fairly easily tell in advance which .mp3’s will cause this problem before I put them on the Fuze?
