This thread seems to be going pretty fast . It’s doubled in size since last time I checked yesterday. Anyway, I am really disappointed in this firmware. Don’t get me wrong, all the new features are very nice and some have been desperately needed. The problem is when you can’t get your Fuze to turn on. I posted about it yesterday, and still have found no cure – formatting, reinstalling firmware, reset to factory settings, etc. No matter what, I have to hold the slider up in excess of 3 minutes four or five times just to get the thing to turn on. And it’s getting worse – it seem like every time I turn it off it takes longer to turn back on. It’ll also turn on and get stuck at the welcome screen.
Once I do get it to turn on, the device acts competely normal. I can even connect it to my computer normally (when it’s shut off, my computer now refuses to see it). This is really frustrating, and I’m trying to contact Sandisk to try and see if they know what’s going on… in the meanwhile, is there a way to uninstall the new firmware and go back to the previous? I would like to know if it is really the firmware’s fault in the end (though it did begin right after I upgraded). Thanks.
You seem to be the only one haveing this exact issue. I would contact tech support and see if anyone else has this happen. If not then ask about an RMA, because it sounds defective.
