I see where the folders, folder was added.

I Currently add files using MTP and windows Media player.  If I wanted to  use the folder feature, Do I have to change to MSC, or can I just drag and drop and still be in MTP?

no need to switch to MSC all you will need to do is go to folders select MTP then music and you will see all your music folders.

Great. I found that after I posted. Now just to clarify... If I want to add music in the future, can I just drag and drop into the folders folder?

 

Also, will it show MTP and MSC or something like that? (I guess the second question is yet to be figured out as we all play with this new feature)

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I also noticed when you are listening to music and look at something.. example photos..

 

I was listening to music and looked at photos. I manually hit the right key to go through the pictures.. When I was done looking at photos I hit the home button twice to get to the current song playing.  When I hit the home button the music has a slight pause and then resumes.

 

I have re-created this with some other areas other than pictures.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

ok before someone said u had to format your fuze to get the 8000 song limit right, well when you do that do you also have to re install the new firmware???

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I am listening to the fuze now on play all. All of a sudden the music ended one song and stopped. I looked at the screen and it has 15/504 and the info for one of my pictures.  It says on the bottom playing and the picture info and the pause symbol. I placed it down and started to type this post.  The fuze went black and won't turn on. I tried to soft reset and nothing. It just bricked?????  I turned it to hold and then tried soft reset. Now it turned on and started to refresh media.

 

Now that is weird. Why would a picture cycle in the music?

 

I turned it back on and it seems to be playing again. I will post if it does it again.

I don't live and die by firmware updates (I greatly enjoy them, whether it be formy PS3, the Fuze, etc) so I wasn't aware what would make it or what would not. However, this particular update doesn't do much good for me. Folder navigation? Ok, I just search by artists I don't see the problem with it. I can see people using it I suppose, the 8000 song thing seems important, too bad I won't ever have that much.

Well, folder navigation is a good way to compensate for the fact that you can't choose to browse by "album artist" instead of "song artist". I have a lot of album tagged « various artists », and I can't find them through the artist list.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

In French, Power is still translated "Marche/Arrêt" while it should be "Batterie", or "État batt.", or "État batterie".

Seeing "On/off  78%" is kinda strange Smiley Happy

 

Thanks for folder navigation and ID3 v2.4 tags!!

reformat is reqired to resize the database. you will need to use the format option in the settings menu. it will not erase the firmware but you will need to reload all your songs.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

After installing the new firmware, using the onboard Format command allows the device to "arrange the bookcases" for 8000 song capability.  Be sure to use the device's resident command.

 

Oh, and have a backup of your music first, so you can have a reloading party.
