Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

First of all - Thank you sandisk for a great update.


I hope this wasn't brought up before, it's hard to keep track of this whole thread, but in 'folder nav' mode, you can't add folders/tracks to the go list... seems wrong to me Smiley Happy


(and I'm still waiting for the auto golist refresh thing! only then I'll be able to say there's no need for rockbox.)

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I'd suggest to rename the new downloadable firmware zip file from to in order to avoid any confusion.


Anyway, this firmware update is just great! For me, folder navigation and track info are really valuable enhancements. Thanks, folks!

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I noticed in the release notes that "ID3 tags version 3.2.4 is now supported".

I'm assuming the author meant ID3 version 2.4 (typo?).


More importantly, does this mean we can change our MP3Tag options to "ID3 v2.4 UTF-8" without problems?

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Thanks for update!  It seems to have solved my two major issues with the player: resuming large mp3 files sometimes fails, and an inability to play very large files.  I listen to a lot of audiobooks and like to manage them as one (very) large mp3 file.


I just tried a 1GB audio book - 45 hours long.  I seeked out to 41 hours and change and made the player resume a few dozen times.  Worked perfectly!


Thanks!  This is GREAT!

 I am not shure if I understood entry #73 of this thread the same way as you did. And which one of us is right ;-)


 As I understand MTP there is a database behind this protocol which stores the multimedia content in a large (database) file on the Fuze. This database is changed to make 8000 songs storable. The older versions where only able to store 4000 songs and the new firmware is compatible to this database. But if you do not switch to the newer database format you're stuck with the maximum of 4000 songs. If you want to use the maximum of 8000 songs you have to reinitialise the Fuze to make it using the newer database format.


But (!) if anyone uses MSC this should be no point. The Fuze should be able to play up to 8000 songs without any reformatting because it rewrites the database for this mode any time you change the songlist - and this database only stores a list of songs stored in the file system of the Fuze and where they start on the medium. This database is a completley other database than the MTP database.


This is just how _I_ understand it.

Time to get one of those rare 32GB microSD cards now so that I can more or less move my whole media collection over....

Don't dig out that credit card just yet. 32GB micro-SDHC cards are not available. 16GB is the largest.

Officially not, but there are samples out by the manufacturers for the deleopers already. So if you now some guys in the business you can well get one by now (just don't believe in the 32GB card on ebay.....)

Thank you Sansa. The deciding factor in me getting this player was the fact that you support them so well and actually listen to your customers.


I would also like to add how wonderfully simple this update was to install. I normally HATE those little bubbles that popup by the clock in MS Windows... but when I plugged in my Fuze today and saw a little bubble popup and say "There's a new update for your Fuze! Click here!" I was very excited! hahaha 2 Clicks and it was updated. Nice!


Thanks particularly for TRACK INFO.

I just want to let you know that the screen turns itself off automatically at a period of time.  It won't affect screenlife, and will help you avoid burn-in.
