Re: Weird graphic glitch with new firmware?

Same thing happened (though not as cool looking) when playing a track where all three lines (artist/album/track) scrolled.  This time it wasn't just a white or white/gray line over the thumbnail, but a line freckled with several colors (could be the fact that the album image has more detail than "Excitable Boy"...this time it was the first "Robbie Robertson" self-titled album, playing the track "American Roulette".  The glitch line appeared both on top of the album thumbnail once, and another time it was above it (buy below the "Music" bar at the top).  Again, I was fiddling with the volume as the player scolled thru all three lines of text one at a time, when it shifts to the next line to scroll it appears (and the white area around the volume bar disappears).  Minor "refresh" problem with the display, but should be easy for QA to duplicate.

considering reverting to 1.22

After a few days of using the 1.26 FW I am considering reverting to 1.22. The main issues I saw were these

1-after deleting a video from the menu, which was instantaneous, it still showed up in the list but hung the fuze when selected

2-several times I got the white screen for no reason

3-generally hung a few times and after removing the micro-sd card it refused to power on until i did a soft-reset

 

On the up side I love replay-gain and folder browsing and the other features in the latest FW.

 

Nothing personal to the developers, but IMHO the latest is slightly unstable in the sense that it seems it can easily get into a state that confuses it or something similar which I believe leads to the hangs and the like.

Re: considering reverting to 1.22

I have a strange issue with deleting files too. 

When I delete a video, it "deletes" instantanly but the video remains there.

If I try to see the "deleted" video a black screen of death appears and I have to restart the fuze.

When I start the fuze, a "refreshing media" message appears and when I go to the video directory the "deleted" video becomes really deleted.

The videos are in a 8GB Sandisk microSD card.

I'm using V01.02.26F

Hi,

I've been checking these forums since I've bought my fuze (8gb black with 4gb SDHC) in dec 08, but after this firmware update I felt the need to post, 'cause I really love my player and I think it's great sandisk supports their customers with those firmeware updates, unfortunately though I think the last update wasn't really an improvement

 

Since I've performed the update I've been having some really, really annoying issues with my player and I'll definitely revert to v.1.22 until at least the big things are fixed

 

the three biggest issues for me are

1. when playing a video file - with or without pausing it - turning off the player it hangs on power on

the video then is wrongly handled as a music file, meaning the player shows the picture the video had on pressing pause or the moment I turned the player off as album cover and the interface is like I'd be playing an mp3

also the main menu has 'lost' all icons and almost every action results in a freeze after the 15seconds power button restart the player starts and does a database update (which shouldn't be needed since there were no changes made by me)

 

2. when playing songs in a playlist with shuffle and repeat all it takes between 5 and 10 seconds for song changes (either manually or when one song ends for the next to automatically start)

 

3. the fuze occasionally freezes when playing songs for a while and then unlocking it, either with the white screen or simply with the last screen before deactivating the key lock

 

Edited to add:

I've now downgraded to 1.1.22 again and all of the above described bugs disappeared, videos work after a restart, switching songs only takes 1 second and the player hasn't frozen on me so far

What the people "need"?  What are you talking about?
What people NEED from the Fuze is for it to play music.  Which it does.  It does its basic functions just fine.  The rest is just really extra features and a matter of personal preferences.  Needs fixing like video and audio?  What needs fixing?
Did you not see all the topics created by people who wanted folder navigation?  Pretty sure that was in high demand and something that the majority of people wanted (or should I say needed?)...   
Gapless playback?  Cause you play basketball?  And because you're 17?  Well that makes sense!  SanDisk!  Give this person gapless playback right away!  He can't use his music to practice without it!  
Give the people what they really need?  Or give you want you want? 
 
I apologize, let me put all this in one paragraph without any periods so you may better understand:

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Corilof,

I really expected better from a "Sansa Senior User".  I am very disappointed at your attack on him.  Although I don't agree either with what he said, this is not a place to verbally attack people over differences in opinions.  That last paragraph was definitely uncalled for.  I'm sorry if this strikes a nerve, but I really thought it necessary to tell you what I think.  Maybe you should take a look at the Forum Rules and Guidelines.

 

RULES AND GUIDELINES:

 

 


"Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
There are to be no racial, ethnic, gender based discriminatory
comments. We expect members to agree or disagree in a civil manner."

 

 


As for audio and video problems, I expect he is talking about such things as hanging on OGG files and the pain that it can be to get video onto the player, due to SMC.

 

 

Please be respectful.

 

Good Day

I was trying to get my point across that when I speak for everyone people are having trouble with the audio formats there using and people have videos they would like to show but smc is annoying you digital dummy can't see that. You just wait for the opportunity to call someone stupid or embarrassed them. This is a forum every person has a right to say what they feel and no one can stop me. I know there rule and guidelines to follow be people think there so smart with a keyboard typing a whole bunch of crap to make your self look smart but I make you look week your probably thinking who is this guy well let tell you I am
