you should be fine. the fuze has an lcd not an oled so screen life is not a huge issue.

ok I have updateted my fuze to this latest firmware from 1.02.22A to 1.02.26A and I am having problems with this latest firmware. Anytime I load up an OGG file in MSC mode disconnect the player from the usb cable the player hangs at the refreshing your media screen. The only way to fix this bug is to reset the player and reconnect the device and remove the OGG file. After doing that the player works fine no hang ups. Please slotmonsta can you report this to the powers that be to look into it or should i email tech support?

Are you "safely disconnecting" or just unplugging it?

Not sure if this was discussed before earlier in another thread but didn't someone say that the firmware would do away with sansa media converter?

I believe that falls into the category of rumor and speculation Smiley Wink

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.

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.  

 


I followed the suggested steps of resetting to factory settings, reset, and reload the firmware for a third time.  No change.  So I formatted using the onboard option.  After turning the fuze off after this, absolutely nothing changed, except that it took longer than ever to get it to turn back on again. Smiley Mad

 

I then plugged it back into my computer and formatted it again from there.  I turned the fuze off, and then back on without problems, no delays or anything.  I did it again just to make sure, and this time the fuze got stuck on the end of the little Sansa logo startup animation.  Had to do a reset to get it off, and now the problem is back again. Smiley Sad

 

Once again, this did not happen until a couple of hours ago after upgrading the firmware (which I am very greatful for, and comes with some really nice features Smiley Happy). I've had several months of completely problem-free and contented use.

 

Edit: I'm going to go sleep soon, so I'll leave the fuze out overnight just in case its only a temporary problem.

As dr.lucky said, the screen should be fine. I prefer to do all my charging with a wall charger though, and I only connect to the computer if I am adding files or removing them. I figure the less I connect to the computer the fewer chances for something bad to happen. Plus the wall charger works faster because your screen will go to sleep instead of continually flashing the animation, which takes battery power.Some would say I am overly paranoid about only wall charging, and not connecting very often, but my Fuze rarely gives me any problems.

I haven't used an Apple computer in about 20 years, so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with your issue or not.....someone with Mac experience will probably have to help you out. Sorry!

I haven't had to do much navigating yet, because I got new music, but I absolutely love the track info. The majority of my music is VBR, so it's cool to check bitrates.....I'm assuming that what I see is the average for the song that is playing.  2,324 songs, 14MB free=lots of listening pleasure

EDIT: Is it just me or is the text scrolling faster? That was sorely needed too
