Low volume

I have the Fuze 4GB, and I recently downloaded the latest updates (it was monday, I believe), and now the music volume is really low even when full.

With certain types of music it’s tolerable, as long as there’s not too much outside noise (though there often is when I listen to it), but I also listen to lots of music which requires more volume (often (amongst other reasons) for the reason that the recording is simply a lower volume than usual). I don’t know if this is some sort of safety-measure to prevent ear damage, but right now it’s just preventing me from listening to most of the music on my player.

So is this that or just a bug, and how could I go about fixing this?

Do a factory reset in the settings menu, when it asks for region do NOT pick Europe.  They restricted the volume in the European firmware.
