Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

[ Edited ]

Because If I am in my car or at a out some place I need to add shows on the fly to my golist. my c250 does this perfectly. I'll add my daily shows to the go list and have them play so I don't have to pull over and select another show when I am out. OR at night time when I am upstairs I'll be adding two or three shows to my list and plug the player into the stereo. Most of the time, it's plugged into a stereo system not the headphones.  This is my forth SanDisk product and this is the only one that doesn't let you move Podcasts to a go list. IF I had of known this before hand I would never have bought it, and if SanDisk does this with any of its future products too. that it, THIS IS MY LAST SANDISK PRODUCT. It's stupid that I have to rename the Genres for all my podcasts or as you say make a custom play list. I don’t have a notebook with me all the time and it's stupid that I would need one just to add three or four shows to a play list. Doesn't seem like a hard request to me, after all my c250 c150 512mb SanDisk players all could do this.  Don’t' see why this product couldn't do that too. That’s why it upsets me... is all.

Slot, can you comment on the corruption of my ID tags after the update? I don't think it can just be me since my brother told me he had the same problem. I'm not mad, but I don't want it ignored since I have to fix it and then wait for the media to refresh. New wallpapers though, keep it in mind.

4 GB Red Fuze, Black Silicon Case, Red JVC Marshmallow Headphones. A 1 GB m240 as well, those were the days.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

ID3 tag issue: songs with genre tag "Sound Clip" have the artist tag truncated to 16 characters. Nonstandard genres may not be allowed in the ID3 v2.3.4 spec, I haven't read it.

 

On the other hand, I'm glad the OGG freeze issue is fixed, and file browser is nice!

Questions:

1.# a)What does the Pregain function do - does it work only for songs with replay gain info, for all, or for all witout replaygain?

1.# b)For which filetypes does replaygain work? All with tags where replaygain information is encoded (so WMA too?) or only mp3?

 

Suggestions:

2.# It would be great if one could switch off indexing alltogether - I use folder navigation now and am happy about it Smiley Happy

 

Thanks a lot for the update. I know for sure that I will be amongst the first to try out rockbox once it's availabe, but I could live without it now too. Time to get one of those rare 32GB microSD cards now so that I can more or less move my whole media collection over....

 

BTW for new features: You forgot to mention that in trackinfo the whole filename is shown now, including the ending!!!! So it's easy to look up what audio compression is used for a song!

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

[ Edited ]

I've registered just to share my (somewhat) frustrating experience with the new firmware.  I was excited at first, but after I loaded the firmware on my (V1, 8GB Silver) fuze, I was shocked to find that my fuze refused to turn on after the update, which apparently went well.  I found that the only way to get my fuze to turn back on again was to do a reset (holding the power switch up for about 15 seconds).  This works inconsistently, and I have to try more than once for it to work.  No amount of 'regular' turning on (just flicking the switch up for a short while) will get it to turn on until I've done the reset. 

 

Also, normally the fuze will turn on automatically after I connect it to my PC.  However, now when I connect it, it remains shut off and XP refuses to recognize its existence.  It doesn't even seem to charge.

 

When it does turn on, it acts absolutely normal - it loads, plays music, everything.  It even connects correctly and without problems to my PC.  Hoping that it would fix the problem, I re-transferred the firmware over to the fuze, which updated again.  The problems remain.

 

This all happened right after I installed the new firmware.  I've had the player since Christmas and this is the very first problem I've ever had with it.  I only hope that there is a way to fix this without having to format the player (though my music collection isn't particularly large,  it is tedious to transfer it all with my old, slow 1.0 USB Ports (or so I assume, as whenever I connect a USB device, it always says it would be better to connect it via a "HI-SPEED USB 2.0 Port" or something like that)).

 

 Thanks in advance for any advice.  I'll probably try formatting if nothing else seems to help.

Edit: I don't use any memory cards.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

This is one great firmware update. The fuze is getting near the top of all mp3 players soon haha.

 

-Folder integration is smooth, nicely designed and found no problems

-Addition of track info is a great feature but missing composer and publisher tags, as well as not including "/" or "x out of x" in track tags

-Embedded Ogg album art support is also great

Wow just discovered:

 

Track Info and get the following additional info

 

Codec MP3(ID3v3.4)

Bitrate: 234(VBR)

Sample Rate 44 100HZ

Track Number: 3

 

 

Typo: Info under System Settings

Shows used instead of free space on SD Card...

 

@person with bricked Fuze. You should try to reinstall the firmware once more. You did use the "All Regions" file I hope, forget the webupdater.

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

I would try resetting the device to factory settings then hold the power switch up for about 10 sec to reset the fuze, then try reloading the firmware. if you are still having issues you will want to format the fuze and reload the firmware and then the files.i would use the format option in the fuze settings menu. this will most likely resolve the issues you are having.

you seem to be the only one having this issue. i would try deleting the files with the issue and reloading them. should fix your issue.
