I've got a couple of questions to the developers of the OS for Sansa Fuze..

I wonder WHY on earth do I need the annoying and time-consuming REFRESHING DATABASE operation if I use ONLY radio and access files using ONLY folder browsing?  :smileysurprised:

 


Because the firmware is designed and written for millions of people using their devices in many, many different ways. They didn't just write it with you in mind, you know.

 

And your 2nd question? . . .

 

Smiley Tongue


You have just replied to my second question. The first one was why I need a database refresh if I use, for instance, ONLY RADIO on that player?   Smiley Happy

 

Actually both my questions are rhetorical ones. I am annoyed that there is no option to opt out of the database refresh. Among the "million of people using their devices in many, many different ways"  there should be some acquainted with computer folder structure. I disagree with this definition of Sansa OS - "million people using in many, many different ways" is more appropriate for RockBox. For me all this tag based database is just a nuisance - I use it for audiobooks.

As I said before in my postings the folder browsing is a strong selling point and it is not implemented properly in Fuze - which is a pity. I know some people who wouldn't buy it just because of it.There is also a requirement to have a direct shortcut to folders from welcoming screen.

The recent lame introduction of folder browsing was a step in the right direction but is can't be compared with the likes of Cowon.

@ Sorry I upset your tender feelings, mate. Of course, nobody forces me to get Fuze - I already have it and use it a lot. As well as Cowon D2, Sony, Iriver, Creative Zen and plenty of known and unknown brands - so I can compare and suggest.

I was under impression that I was kind of addressing a couple of questions to the DEVELOPERS concerning improvement in operational system, forgetting that this is a customer based sandisk forum.

I only have one problem with the latest update, and that is the useless slotradio ad in the selection tab. Does that do anything or is it sandisks placing a useless ad reminding me everytime I turn on my Fuse that I can buy music on microSD cards. Thanks a lot sandisk.

 

 

thinking about going back a update.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update 01.02.26 & 02.02.26

Tried installing 02.02.26. zip file contained fuzpA which didn't work. Renamed to fuzeA which started the upgrade, but then shutdown was way too quick compared to the 01.02.26 upgrade. Turned on fuze. Version wasn't updated.

You can't install "02" firmware if your Fuze came with "01" (likewise you can't install "01" on an "02" device). There are two different hardware revisions of the Fuze, each with its own firmware that will install only on the correct version.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

On March 22, 2010: SanDisk announced (via pcmag) 32GB micro-SDHC would be available.

PC Mag's announcement

 

On March 23 at least one website announced availability of the cards...

Brighthand.com 's take on 32GB microSDHC

 

 

Also, here on SanDisk's board, it seems as if SanDisk itself started selling the 32GB microSDHC cards before these posts claiming nobody was selling them yet..  Only class 2, but that's fast enough for what we want it for...

 

Oh, the link... SanDisk's forum talk on 32GB micro-SDHC

 

And in January Samsung was already announcing the same capacity... Samsung Announces High-density NAND Flash and 32GB microSD cards for Mobile Devices

 

When any of them ACTUALLY shipped may be somewhat difficult to pinpoint though.

 

I'm still happy with the built in 8GB, including a decent music collection and a few videos for when I am waiting (dentist office/waiting to pickup people at the airport)

 

I can wait for prices to drop and class 4 or better speeds....

 

I will also be installing Rockbox on my V2 8GB Fuze before I try the new Sansa firmware.

 

After 2 months of no use of my player, I was happy to see how much battery charge remained.... very impressive indeed.

 

It's nice to see replaygain working again, though one would wonder why people refer to it as a new feature since it was already working fine in older firmwares.

 

Thanks to SanDisk and it's representatives for providing the forum here.

 

 

 

Best regards,
Eric

Yeah, I just checked Amazon for 32 GB micro sd cards, and there's not really much available.
I recently installed Rockbox on my Fuze and I can now listen to my 24-bit/96HKZ encoded music collection--it sounds awesome, the only problem is that even a 32 GB card can only hold about 25 albums or so of music. 
Sandisk (or someone else) really needs to start mass-producing those 64 GB cards, and come out with a new player can support them.
