Does anybody know why the volume change option vanished in the european region? i panicked too, unitl i got the solution of this forum, which is great, BTW, and really helps the Sanza owner

Because there was a law passed limiting the volume of electronic devices sold in that region. In order to keep in compliance with that law, Sandisk removed the option to set the volume to “High”.

Well, thanks be to the lord there is a way round it! It rendered the device useless for in car listening, as you have to tunr your car radio up to unconscionable levels!!

@gwk1967:

There is the problem, thats not right.

It says only, that you must have the option to limit the high volume.

If you want to hear music loud, there must be a warning if you change the settings. 

I hope you understand what I mean, because I can only read and not write in english^^

That’s funny; I can write but can’t read and I think you’re doing a fine job.

Better than a lot of people here! :stuck_out_tongue:

Until Sansdisk releases an update that allows the player to read a cue file (hence instantly enabling gapless playback), I personally won’t be taking any updates - I simply don’t need any as my player works just fine as it is (except for lack of gapless - which is very annoying).

FLACtastic,

May I ask what version of firmware are you running in your fuze that you like so much that your going to stick too? At least to the point of gapless playback? George

Boycotting updates seems pretty silly. You don’t know what small bugfixes may be in there.

I have the current 1.02.26, set to English and (important to get rid of Slot Radio icon) Region: Rest of the World. Works fine.

The 1.02.26 is not the “current” firmware. :wink:

Proof?

EDIT: You posted the same rumor 3 months ago and didn’t provide any evidence then either, except for a suspect screenshot. Plus, you were told then that the Fuze doesn’t have the necessary hardware. So what’s changed? Did Sandisk magically update everyone’s hardware when we weren’t looking?

I doubt you can receive wwvb without a large (compared to the fuze) antenna specifically designed for it.  Trying to use the headphones as an antenna like for FM isn’t going to work for this.   

What is “the wwvb”?

Bugs Fixed:

  •  Device restarts/freezes after changing backlight to 10 sec

So that was actually a firmware problem as I suspected? Very nice, thanks for fixing it! :slight_smile:

I’ll update it straight away.

Well, I just updated to 1.02.31 and noticed something–the update finds your previous USB Mode setting and keeps it. No more changing MSC (my preference) to Auto Detect with every update. A nice little fix.

I was hoping, that they could accomplish making use of the year tag too, since I think this is a very important piece of information - now I got to keep on putting the year in the album tag…

I’m kind of disappointed by the firmware - had hoped for more. The bugs that were fixed didn’t apply to me anyway or I didn’t care about them much. And the new sleep timer? Who needs it?

On the subject of bugs, I was listening to my Fuze in the car a little while ago, through the little Griffin gadget. I was going to disconnect, so pressed pause, but it had no effect, the red “pause” icon appeared, but it just carried on playing. Anybody seen anything like that?

The sleep timer is not new. It was introduced several firmwares ago…and I found it to be quite useful, as I often use one of my players running into a set of powered computer speakers on my nightstand.

Hello,

is there any cause why my new FuzeV2 refuses to flash any firmware other then 02.03.31/02.03.33?

It doesnt flash the older original firmwares nor the patched rockbox bootloader firmware.

I purchased this player for rockbox and now I cant get it on.

Do I have to return it or is there another possibility to make him flash an older/patched firmware?

I have found that I cannot get any audio from the Fuze’s USB when connected to my stereo via a dock (with aux cables connected to audio output of the dock).

I have the latest firmware (02.03.33) I have tried all USB modes, reformating, removing SD card, but nothing helps. I know the dock works because when I switch the player on or off it makes a slight popping sound in my speakers when connected to the dock.  But I just cannot get any music out of it! :frowning:

Strange. Sorry if I should have started a new thread, but I cannot see any facility to do this. :expressionless:

Are you using the OF or Rockbox? If I remember correctly, RB does not work through line-out.
