I’ve had my Fuze for quite a while now (version 1), and I’ve used it for a variety of music & audiobooks (mostly audible). It has probably frozen maybe 3-4 times throughout the whole time I’ve owned it until two nights ago.
I upgraded to the latest firmware two nights ago, because I wanted to see if it fixed some multi-cd audiobook ordering, and since then I’ve had it freeze about 12 times. I’ve been listening to an audible audiobook this whole time, and it usually goes for a good amount of time and then seemingly randomly it will just freeze and require a hard boot. When I turn it back on it goes through “Refreshing Media” again and loses the spot in the audiobook.
I thought the freezes were occurring after I would pause and resume at first, but the last freeze was sudden after about 20-30 minutes of straight playing.
I haven’t seen any current messages on the forums about this problem, is anyone else having it? I haven’t tried non-audible files yet (I’m trying to make it though this audiobook), but If it weren’t limited to audible files I’m guessing I would see more posts about it…
Is there anything to do other than trying to revert the firmware?
