The problem is just like mine. I have an audiobook that has an error in the file. It locks up because it won’t get by the error.
Here is what I did to make sure. I played the file again. Got the same hangup. I then placed the file thru a converter and had it recode the file. Nothing big just washed it thru the converter. Played the file on both and played fine.
Seems the Fuze is freezing due to something in the Codec that is hard in the system. You would think the player would just burp and get past the portion of the file but it doesn’t.
I also played the audiobook in my Sony Walkman. It played fine both original and washed version.
My Sony Walkman doesn’t give me as much trouble as my Fuze but I do like my Fuze
