I just purchased Fuze tonight and have found an odd problem with my unit. It seems that my unit is playing music slow. I first noticed it listening to familiar songs. The pitch seemed lower than normal and the song just seemed to be dragging. So I grab the CD’s that I ripped the songs from, and started playing the songs on a CD player. Immediately I noticed that the pitch was in fact higher from the CD player. I started the same track on my Fuze and on the CD player. Over the course of a song ~5 min. in length there was a difference of 5 seconds in the finish time. I compared track length and found that the same song on the cd player listed as 4:57 in length is listed as being 5:02 on the Fuze.
I have repeated this test with different songs and CD’s and with other sources. I even compared the Fuze with my PC. Using the same song, being the very file I moved to the Fuze, and found the problem to persist there as well. I have updated to the most recent firmware and the issue persists.
If anyone has any ideas what could be causing this, I would appreciate your input.
