your continued accusations of trolling towards people who are just pointing out the flaws in this lousy player (even if they are being a little dramatic) have turned me off quite a bit. Did some official Sandisk representative make you a moderator? Do you actually work for Sandisk? Either way, it reads as bad customer service to me, and you need to change your attitude, or I would hope someone at Sandisk would take this responsibility away from you.
Perhaps VACaver’s experience isn’t the exact same as mine, but I enjoyed this player much more (but still recognized its problems) before they changed the locking method. I WOULD have returned this product had they made this change earlier, but they made this change after my return date passed, so I’m stuck with this player whose locking method I find annoying. When I and a couple others posted that we would like to be given the choice of which locking method to use (this would make everyone happy) you dismissed this as a ludicrous idea. Again, you have no reason to do this, and the fact that no one seems to take any action to monitor moderator posts is just one more reason I would like to avoid Sandisk products in the future.
On top of the annoying change in locking method, after 11 months the player still can’t handle non-audible audiobooks without retagging as something else, and bookmarking is worse than Fuze and Clip+. I kept thinking “this next firmware update will make it better” but alas, these problems still exist.
Because of the reasons listed above, I have stopped using this player and just accepted that I am out the money I spent on it. I cannot get enough for it on ebay or Amazon to make it worth selling. Maybe I can gift it at Christmas.
I beg of others…please don’t let Tapeworm deter you from using this forum to point out the flaws of the player, or else Sandisk will think they don’t need to update the firmware anymore. They might even keep this stupid hardware for future releases unless we keep pointing out that we don’t like it.
