Jmr,

This is the main reason that kept me from updating! The shut down and refreshing of the unit…Also some have had unexpected refreshing of the unit…  I’m still going to wait it out and see what’s up with it…  George

I think we found the cause of the unexpected DB refresh.  Here’s the latest:

Skinjob,

Thanks for the link!  George

Thanks to the Forum members who have helped us find this bug.  It looks like an easy fix for the next release.  I would look for it to be fixed in November.  Fortunately  , you can avoid the problem by waking the device screen first and then powering off. 

the only problem i have with my fuze is when i delete a song of photo or video it take longer to delete it?

can someone answer my question?

 I’ve had problems with the white screen of death  while deleting a file using  the previous firmware.This is not a new problem. 

Hey, thanks for fixing the problem with recording from the mike! (I haven’t tried the fix yet though).

This problem (harsh screeching when you record something sort of loud) and the non-wrapping scrolling were my main disappointments with the Fuze.

I’m looking forward to the next update already!

It’s great to see that feedback from these forums is actually taken into consideration.  I’m really glad I bought a Sansa!

As a classical music listener with a nice new set of headhones, thanks for the FLAC and OGG support!

Now I just need to get started re-ripping those 1200 CDs to whichever I decide on.

Okay, I have had problems since I bought this Fuze.  I downloaded the firmware thinking it would fix the problem but now it’s worse.  Now I can’t even power on the device!  The problem I was having prior to downloading the firmware was the songs would play the music but you couldn’t hear anyone singing.  And some of the songs seemed to skip. I’m really not too thrilled with this thing.  I thought it would be easy to use.  Can anyone help me?

Well, since I am a Linux user, I love this thing. Drag and drop, and since all my files are tagged I have no problems in that regard.

Since I updated the firmware (drag the firmware into the root directory, unplugg, updated. Brilliant <.<) I am happy for the ogg and flac support, since most of my music is ripped into ogg.

I wouldnt mind an option to display/see the bitrate or an info selection to display the music file information. Im a geek like that.

And an option to set a picture as a wallpaper, and perhaps more colors to choose from.

I wish there was an easier way to convert video files in linux for the fuze. Anyone have a script for that? I’m too lazy to write a bash script <.<

Msi,

If the headphone jack isn’t plugged all the way in you will hear hollow sounding music and a lot of what sounds like skipping music. That is a very common complaint.  I had that problem myself.  I was sure the jack was plugged all the way in, but it wasn’t.  That’s probably what was wrong preceeding the firmware update.  I’d try doing the update again and then make sure the jack is plugged all the way in.  Hope this helps.

msi, it is possible that your Fuze is defective. Mistakes happen. So you should just contact Sandisk and get an RMA or return it to your brick and motar store.

The Creative Zen Vision:M did that, and it was nice. Sometimes when a file doesn’t sound all that great I find myself wondering what the bitrate is, and its annoying to have to plug it into a computer to find out so simple.

Serious malfunction here…updated the firmware…after getting the all clear to unplug the Fuze, got a white screen. I did a hard shut down, now all I get is a blue-greenish screen that’s in the lower right hand corner of the screen. It will not boot up into a greeting screen at all, will not stay powered, it simply does not go anywhere.

Edit: It’s far worse than I imagined. Right now the Fuze is plugged into the pc and the pc isn’t even recognizing the connection to the device.

Second Edit: Now, it won’t shut down at all and the screen is still there .

Help…please.

After the update, doing anything has the purpose of turning the light on.  So if you want to have a normal shutdown, go up once quick to turn the light on and then up again for normal shutdown.  Of course you can turn the light on by hitting any other button and then up with the power switch for normal shutdown.  Not sure if they intended this function but once you figure it out, it works.

yea besides a cool hello/goodbye screen this update has been bad i get the white screen too. but mines still work. mines take like 3 mins to delete a video.

As a classical fan I bought the Fuze solely for the potential FLAC support. I actually put the unit away for a couple of months before this firmware release was available, as I had other players of comparable SQ and prefered good CD players anyways. I’d been watching this forum and upgraded the first day this FW was available. The moment I put on a good pair of headphones, it’s WOW! Such INCREDIBLE sound from something smaller than a CD player finally! The texture and articulation of music can be enjoyed in full, from the gripping details of the strings to the delicate flutter of the wind instruments. Thank you Sansa!

I used Linux and MSC mode to upload. One nuisance was that I had to rename about 20 percent of the files as they failed to upload with certain punctuation signs as file names. The colon “:” is the most common problem as it’s frequently used in classical titles to delineate composers or movements. I hope that it’ll be fixed in the next FW upgrade.

This firmware has been a god-send. Thank you guys so much for releasing it! I haven’t tried OGG or FLAC yet but I might give it a chance… The wrap-around scrolling works wonders on videos, especially since I have about 80 videos to scroll through.

SansaMe,

I eagerly looked forward to the firmware upgrade in order to play my OGG files.

I upgraded the firmware to Sansa Fuze 01.01.15 successfullly with no known glitches.  Everythings seems to work well including the new opening screen. 

When I try to transfer OGG files to the MicroSD card in the Sansa Fuze via Microsoft Windows Explorer (my usual method of transferring files to the Sansa Fuze MicroSD card), I receive the message that the media player does not support the OGG files and the only options are to CANCEL, SKIP and SKIP ALL.

Faulty installation of the firmware?

Can I simply place the OGG files on the MicroSD card with the MicroSD in my computer rather than in the Sansa Fuze and then put the MicroSD card back into the Sansa Fuze? 

 Any help would be appreciated.   I did not see any other message describing this problem.

I just learned about the site.  I am very pleased that it exists.  Keep up the good work.

Thanks. 

Rocketrider.

I love how the admins ignore everyone who mentions gapless playback…

I have yet to see gapless playback on any mp3 player.  They fought for it over on IRiver.  Wish they would let you know that it is difficult or impossible to do.  My guess is that it is impossible.
