1 months ago I purchased a Sansa Fuze 4GB and I really enjoyed it. In that first month I transferred music from Microsoft Media Player to the Fuze with no problems and I also played music with no problems, at least I don’t see any problems. Everything seemed to be working great until last night when I installed the new firmware.
I installed the new firmware using Sansa Firmware Installation application. After installing the new firmware, I had to resync my library. I noticed after the resync when I played music, many songs on the fuze would be skipped. For example, I would play song ABC and after song ABC was over, I would see the image for song DEF, but the song DEF would not play and the Fuze would skip to the next song HIG. If I tried to navigate backwards to the song (DEF), which was originally skipped, it would be displayed, but the Fuze would skip to the next song HIG.
If I tried to navigate directly to the skipped song through Fuze’s interface, the song would not play. Artist ZYX had multiple songs in their folder. If I selected to play all the songs for that specific artist, the Fuze would skip infinitely without playing any music.
Also, after I upgraded the firmware, I noticed the all my music was removed from the Fuze and my GoList was empty.
Does anyone have any recommendation on how to resolve these problems?
I tried resting the Fuze by sliding the spring-loaded power switch on the side up as if you were turning on the device, but hold it in the upper position for 20-30 seconds, as described here http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board/message?board.id=sansafuse&thread.id=44242, but it did not work.
