Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Thanks!

 

I sucessfully  updated to the new firmware.  Love the new features.

 

The file resume bug I reported still reproduces - after 10 or so power cycles, the resume point is reset to the beginning of the file.  This is a major problem for me.  If there is anything I can do to help with reproducing this bug, please let me know.

Re-read the post, especially the first section. There are 2 different hardware versions now. If you just installed the .15 version the other night, you have Rev. 1 and your new update would be 01.01.22.

never heard of it probably because it is new. i have seen 1 other post about the new version. both seem to identical though since they have the same release notes.

I'm listening to an audio book.  I'm power cycling much more than 10 times while listening to the same 'song'.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Question. I see it now said All languages are now in one firmware version.. It also said that you can pick your region when running the updater..  Does this mean you now need to install and use the firmware updater? Can I do a manual install and not use the updater as before? If so how do I pick my region with out the updater..I'm looking at  01.01.22 version and my region was "a" in the older firmware updates..  Thanks.. George
*His* 8GB Silver Fuze v01.02.31A also 8GB MicroSDHC card installed *Hers* 4GB red Fuze with 16GB micro SDHC card! Firmware v01.02.31A still installed. Acquired another 8GB Fuze also with firmware v01.02.31A now..
