While playing long MP3s (greater than approx 36 minutes), the progress meter hits the right before the track has ended. Once this has happened, rewinding and fast-forward goes a screwy. It jumps back too far, forwards too much and generally doesn’t work as it should. This problem is particularly apparent when listening to podcasts, which tend to be quite long.
I thought at first this was to do with a particular MP3, but I’ve since found it happening on several others. Once the progress meter has butted-up against the right, the only way to access the section of the track that is over 36 minutes is to forward onto the next track, then hold rewind to go back through into the previous track. Even then, the time reported is clearly wrong.
I’ve updated to the latest firmware, but this hasn’t fixed the problem. Is this a good place to report this bug, or should I send an email to someone as SanDisk? This is the only annoyance in an otherwise surprisingly excellent device.
