Is there anywhere that I can find a firware version changelog listing for the Sansa Express? I'd like to decide whether I should go through all the trouble of updating my firmware (I'm running Linux) based on picking up any particular bug-fixes or feature enhancements.
My current version is 01.00.15A2 . In particular I really wish power off while paused would resume on power on or baring that that my auto power off settings would survive a power cycle. Or if both of those are a pipe dream that resuming would work more reliably (it seems that it does not correctly resume about a third of the time).
Anyone have any links to san disk resources describing the nature of the f/w updates or whether later version fix any of my issues?

For all I know. This firmware fixes a few problems that a lot of us has been screaming over:
1. boot up problem
2. Kingston 2g & PNY 2g mSD problem resolved
3. SDHC supports up to 8G
Well...that's all I know. Hope this helps

Couple of days ago I used the 'updater' and it installed a new firmware in my 2GB Express
It is Version 01.01.05F and not the one ending with '15' mentioned in other posts !
I am in Europe. Is the xx.xx.15xx for US only ?!
Will I need that firmware to used 8GB microSDHC cards ?!

I'm also using Linux, and I was wondering how people manage to update the firmware on these SEs without Windows installed (WINE won't run it properly as far as I've tried [many times])?
An updater that's Linux-native would be very nice, whether or not it exists. The firmware on it is version 01.00.015A2.

Unfortunately, Linux just isn't going to happen - SanDisk only supports Windows, and the Express can only be updated using that little program.
There may be a way to drag certain files from the firmware update onto it in MSC mode, but I can't test that at the moment. Google was not helpful. If you try it, please let us know how it goes!
