Besides what would you really do with 3000 songs on a fuze. IMO, the only benefit to having that large of a card is better quality files and maybe more movies. To be honest, I can’t see a real need for a micro sd card with that much storage.
I bought my Fuze after searching for the best replacement for my Rio Karma specifically because I thought I could have all my music with me (5000+ tracks as I do with my Karma) with the 8GB internal memory and 16GB card. None of Sansa’s published information that I’m aware of, makes this daft track limit clear to customers.
A better question would be, why would a manufacturer release a DAP capable of using so much storage and cripple it with a low track limit?
If this isn’t fixed, I suspect the Fuze will not only be my first Sansa purchase, but my last too. However, the last word on here from Sansa was that this will be fixed, so I’m assuming that’s still the case. My requirement was for a small form factor, high capacity DAP with excellent sound quality. I thought the Fuze ticked all three boxes, but currently it only ticks two and had I known that, I wouldn’t have bought it yet.
