Having an issue with my Fuze freezing during playback.

I listen to a LOT of podcasts on my mp3 player. Nearly exclusively so. Whenever I’m playing my Fuze every once in a while I’ll have an issue with playback stopping and no reactions to my button presses. Or I’ll press the home button and it will load half the home screen. When I reset the Fuze and restart it, it will freeze again. However, if immediately after restarting my fuze I switch to another podcast or another song, the fuze will let me go back to the podcast I was playing (saving none of the playback from the moment I turned on the Fuze to the freeze) and restart it from where I had started up the Fuze initially. This paragraph seems kind of confusing to me, let me know if there’s anything I can clarify. I’m updating the firmware right now but I’m 90% sure I’m on the latest. Thanks for reading.
