Even though the Fuze+ is listed as supporting AAC, it seems it doesn’t support AAC files over a certain length, or else certain file size. (Someone, is this worth its own thread?)
Because of this, I have to convert certain podcasts to another file format before listening. MediaMonkey standard seems to limit MP3 conversions (but I love the software otherwise) so I figured I would convert to OGG instead (plus OGG seems to have a better compression ratio than MP3 anyway.)
I found while listening to these podcasts I can successfully pause to create a restore point, and when I come back, it resumes fine, as long as the device hasn’t cycled off in between. If the device has cycled off and back on, then when I return to try to resume, it tries (it even lists the time index on screen) but then says “Unsupported file type” and fails to resume. I have tested this on my old Fuze and do not have the same problem.
Are others experiencing the same thing? I want to make sure if it is just a simple bug Sandisk is aware of it and can provide a fix in a future firmware update.
BTW, I am using firmware 1.32.00 (the most recent as of this post).
