unable to adjust volume while viewing photos

hopefully this will make sense.  if i am listening to a song and decide to go and look at a pix on my fuze, how come i cannot adjust the volume unless i restart the song?  on my old e260, if i go to menu, choose photos,  view a pix while a song is already playing and do not touch any buttons on the player, it will automatically go back to the song. the fuze will not go back. so again, if i need to adjust the volume, i have to restart the song. i hate this. is there a way around it? thanks.

called sansa help desk.  they were able to fix.  had to adjust some settings.
