I bought my 8Gb Fuze over Christmas as an emergency measure while my other players were sent in for repairs and I’m really happy with it. That being said, having drowned in this thread for days now, I have a couple questions (no, one of them *isn’t* when will the firmware be released - I’m quite content to wait on the assumption that it’s being properly tested):
Will the new Fuze firmware FINALLY have gapless playback? Regardless of what anyone else says, this is a must have, at least for me. Hopefully it will be implemented in such a way that it supports mp3, flac and ogg although I could get by with the first two only. Heck, if software devs for Winamp, Foobar, XMPlay and VUPLayer could figure out the way around the format limitations, I see no reason why firmware engineers can’t.
The other thing I’d love to see this player get is folder support. Yes, I’ve read the nonsense that it’s good enough for Apple users so it should be good enough for Sandisk users. Rubbish. If I was an Apple chowderhead, I’d have bought an Apple player - I prefer not to settle for medioctiry. ;) My other two players by Cowon (an X5 and an iAudio 7) both support folders and I find that essential for the way I organize / play music.
However, given the choice, I’d pick gapless over folder support.
Sooo, anyone know the answers? Inquiring minds want to know…
