It could also mean that the music files could be in the wrong file format. Try using the Windows Media Converter (or whatever it is) and convert the files to wma. WMA should work fine.
Hi First timer on here, but have been viewing and using the info on the site since I had my first Sansa e280 (lost/stolen), then also when I got my first Sansa View (broken…or so it seemed, taken back to store and replaced with Fuze, no questions asked thankfully)! And would like to say a BIG THANKYOU to everyone who inputs here for your kind and considerate, (not to mention HELPFUL) replies!
Anyway, back to the issue at hand. I have the Version 1 Fuze (8gb) loaded with a 2gb micro SD (sandisk…of course!), after having the same problems with my music files I thought I’d look here.
As mentioned above, Pringles has suggested using the WMP conversion tool to change the file. However, MY problems started after using the same thing, so I’m not sure that’s really the answer.
I had almost 7.5gb used of pure mp3 files (no vids, podcasts etc), and last night decided to convert them using WMP11’s converter in order to free up some space to get a video on.(fat chance!).
I only converted mp3 files that were larger than 128kbs and set the convector to change the files ‘wma’ @128kbs (if the mp3’s were already @ 128kbs then I just left them, as MB for MB wma seems to be higher at the same kb rate, and I was trying to ‘save’ memory, not increase it, if you catch my drift?).
All the files I converted now have this skipping problem (I’m still working on the solution). Have tried updating to the new firmware (which looks good, but caused me too many problems so I’ve backdated to version 01.01.22.).
Already tried formatting last night and reloading tracks, but problem still there.
As I said, I’m still working on it, and if I find out what’s up, I’ll get back to you…however, if anyone’s had this too, and can suggest further ways. I’d be very grateful.
Sorry for the long post, keep up the good work…I’ll try too! :robothappy:
