I’m using my new 2GB Express with WMP11 and a 2GB SanDisk MicroSD. Out of the package, the firmware was version 01.01.01A2. So far, the player has been working as expected and I am able to upload and play my music without any issues.
Having read many of the horror stories in this forum, I won’t even install the firmware updater until I’m convinced that it’s necessary. Granted, people probably won’t come to the forums unless they have issues or questions, so it’s hard to judge whether or not the posts here represent a good mix of Express owners.
My questions are, should I keep the unit’s firmware up to date or leave well enough alone? Before updating, are you informed of the fixes so that you can decide whether it’s worth running the update? Has anyone updated recently without encountering subsequent problems?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
