Loudness problem

Ever since I downloaded a certain song onto my Fuze, some songs randomly start playing on the highest loudness setting, no matter what volume I actually have it on, which is very painful to my ears and I’m also worried about my headphones blowing out. This happens maybe once out of every 8 songs or so, but it’s still very annoying. Can anyone help?

As the old saying goes – “One bad apple spoils the whole bunch”.  Get rid of the bad apple that’s making your player go bonkers.  It could be that the song file is corrupt.

Have you updated to the lastest firmware?  There’s a bug fix for sudden jumps in volume.
