Hey whats up,
I have a new 8GB Sansa Fuze V2.
This is my 3rd fuze.
My first one was a V1 but it was dying and it served my needs vailantly enough that I bought a new one.
Though I went to a country where digital mp3s are a bit of a luxury and someone became attached to it…and the second one went gone.
Now, I have the latest 8GB Fuze with the 2.*.*.33A update.
So I know, my way around the product. After owning a couple of them.
Though, no matter what, in every Sansa Fuze version I’ve used there has always been issues with the Fuze playing OGG files. If not for the cant play any album with album art greater than 500x500 pixels (though this happened on MP3 also), it’s something else.
It will play most of my OGG files BUT on the the FEW OGG files it doesnt play,it will simply show the name the track skip the file moving onto the next song (as if it is DRM’D or in a format it doesnt understand.)
I used to be able on the older devices to rename the music or move and replace the music and it magically worked (cant say for sure what the issue is). It’s really starting to grate my nerves though, because it seems to be doing this more frequently on the 2*.*.33A firmware version.
I dont know what is causing this. I’ve always used the same program to convert my music into OGG. Soundconverter on Linux. I dont know why it chooses random files, or if there is something unsual in the Vorbis Comment or what. Though, I would like to get this resolved, so I am not opposed to taking steps to figure out what the issue is, but I’m sure it’s a player-side issue.
