I had an e200something 4gb with rockbox in the past. After repairing it for the third time, I decided to get a new player. After a lot of contemplaiting I got the Fuze+ 8gb in black.
I like its feel.
I like its display.
Sound is pretty good.
I am so close to smashing it with a hammer.
Firmware is .32
if I put a certain flac on it, it goes in ‘eternal reboot loop’ mode. Boots, shows ‘loading’ screen, reboots. Player unusable. Lots of fun. Maybe the flac is defective, but even if - there is no excuse for such a behaviour. The player should just ignore it or handle it gracefully. Crashing is never a valid response.
If somebody has an idea I am willing to listen.
almost the same as 1 but even better: putting a hand crafted playlist on the player and the player freezes completely during boot. Great! Yeah, reset works, and then quickly attaching it via usb and removing the file.
Question: did Sandisk pay their firmware writers? They should demand their money back. How could something brittle as this even pass basic QA?
Time, I really don’t want to see ‘am’ or ‘pm’. 24h format please. But… how?
with Rockbox you select an album, press the select key and the album is added to the playlist. Very handy to create a playlist quickly out of several albums. In fact, this is the only way I ever created playlists because it fits my needs perfectly.
Now guess what does not work with the Fuze+?
with creating playlists on the fuze+ being utterly unusable and me without windows, how do I create playlists that do not freeze the player? (Hint: easytag and amarok both create playlists of doom, and yes, I replaced the / with \ and used unix2dos, no change).
