Hi to all
I am looking at buying a Fuze+ 16gb plus an external 32gb card to increase overall capacity. I am purely wanting this mp3 player for music capacity and I am wondering, by using a 32gb external card will the player slow down excessively interms of start up time?
Are there any other issues I need to be aware if I go for this setup?
Many thanks in advance.
I’ve been using the 16 gig with a 32 gig card. After updating to the 2.38.06 firmware, other than minute or so it takes to boot up I don’t have any problems that I can see.
My stats at the moment read:
Internal Free: 537 mb
Card Free: 709 mb
Run, don’t walk from the Fuze+.
I got mine for Fathers Day and it’s horrible.
My old Fuze work flawlessly. The Fuze+ has horrible controls, horrible user interface, and constantly locks up.
This is the worst mp3 player I’ve ever owned.
Almost exclusively, “locking up” is caused by a specific music file that has an error in compression or a glitch in transfer, or bad metadata. The metadata is two part: there us the ID3 tag , and the embedded album art. The album art should be a basic jpg / jpeg 300 x 300 image, roughly.
If you use WIndows Media Player , the correct settings are automatic. Otherwise, you can use mp3Tag , a free utility, to embed the correct data automatically. Once this is correct, freeze-ups are a thing of the past. If you purchase music from a source like Rhapsody, the metadata and format are correct. eMusic, Amazon, and even iTunes tracks (exported as mp3 format or even DRM-free AAC) will play flawlessly on the Fuze+.
WIth mp3tag, all you need do is set it to write the output format to ID3v2.3 ISO8859-1 (Latin-I) format.
“Run, don’t walk from the Fuze+.”
Well we’ve been a lot here complaining for a while because of the buggy firmware…
At least one must admit that the biggest problem are behind us. Sandisk needed a lot of time before solving those issue but for now it’s done. (althrought there are still some for audiobooks.)
