Two Firmware Bugs With Playlists & uSD

Affects version V01.01.15F

Can’t rename playlists on external storage (uSD).
To recreate:

  1. Connect the Fuze to a Windows PC.
  2. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the Fuze’s ‘External uSD Card’ folder.
  3. Select some tracks on the uSD card
  4. Right click the selected tracks, select ‘Create Playlist’
  5. A playlist ‘New Playlist.pla’ is created.
  6. Right click the playlist, select ‘Rename’, and rename it.
  7. Disconnect the Fuze from the PC.
  8. Navigate to the Fuze Playlists menu. Your new playlist is still called ‘New Playlist’ not what you renamed it to.
  9. Connect the Fuze to the PC.
  10. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the created playlist.
  11. Note that the playlist is still called ‘New Playlist.pla’

Playlist on ‘Internal Memory’ refering to tracks on ‘External uSD Card’ looses content when interrogated via MTP.
To recreate:

  1. Connect the Fuze to a Windows PC.
  2. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the Fuze’s ‘External uSD Card’ folder.
  3. Select some tracks on the uSD card
  4. Right click the selected tracks, select ‘Create Playlist’
  5. A playlist ‘New Playlist.pla’ is created.
  6. Using Windows Explorer, move the playlist to the Fuze’s ‘Internal Memory/Playlists’ folder.
  7. Disconnect the Fuze from the PC.
  8. Navigate to the Fuze Playlists menu. Check that your new playlist has the correct tracks.
  9. Connect the Fuze to the PC.
  10. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the created playlist.
  11. Right click the playlist, choose ‘Open’
  12. Note that no tracks are shown in the playlist editing window.
  13. Disconnect the Fuze from the PC.
  14. Navigate to the Fuze Playlists menu. Your playlist is now empty.
    Note that for a playlist refering to tracks on internal memory can be edited by opening the playlist, and that the Fuze accepts the edited play list.
    Note also, that the deletion of playlist content also occurs on libmtp (Linux) hosts when a playlist refering to tracks on the uSD is opened.

Shouldd have mentioned that these problems relate to MTP access. Haven’t tried MSC access.

Noticed that attempting to open (in Windows Explorer) a playlist stored on the uSD that refers to tracks on the uSD also shows no tracks present. However, it does not save an empty playlist over the existing one (as it does if the playlist is in internal memory - see first post). Once the Fuze has been disconnected, the playlist still has its tracks.
