Thanks for letting us know Smiley Wink. At the end of my my firmware after updating, it has the letter A. What does that mean?

Thanks for the new firmware. I can confirm this has fixed the skipping/popping with backlight off with certain files for me. I haven't quite got used to the accelerated scrolling yet, but I'll give it a go. I would still prefer Rio Karma style first-letter alphabetic scrolling if you could ever do that.

 

Regarding the sleep timer, nice feature, but I think the "Shut down in XXX mins" setting seems to alter the incorrect way in relation to scrolling the wheel - the numbers decrease when rotating clockwise and increase when rotating anti-clockwise, where I think it should be the other way round. The similar setting in the Power Saver setting works correctly.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

My apologies,

 

SansaFix indicated "We are working on it,  but it wont be in the next update,  more likely the following one. "

 

...........Just a little anxious.  The Fuze is a great product, particularly if the song limit is increased to allow better use of the expansion capability.

I'm elated to see that Audible on the µSD card has been repaired.

 

And a sleep timer!  Now how cool is that?

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I download the firmware on my fuze I it works great.  But under settings, there is a new feature.  Sleep.  But sleep is the same thing as power saver.

Close, but not quite.

 

Power Saver feature will shut down your player in the 'set' amount of minutes if it is 'in-active', meaning on pause and not playing anything.

 

Sleep Mode shuts down your player in the 'set' amount of time, if it IS 'active', meaning playing something. So you can be listening to music or an audio book (like you would use the sleep timer on your radio alarm clock) when you go to bed, and it will turn off in however many minutes you set it for. That way it won't be on all night draining your battery.

 

Although why anyone would want to go to sleep with those earbuds still in their ears, I don't know. Smiley Tongue

 

Many TV's also have this function, as many people go to sleep watching them.

The sleep feature works perfectly for me.  The unit shuts down at the prescribed time and when the unit is turned back on, it picks up exactly where it left off.

I've been doing it ever since devices have had sleep timer functions.....Smiley Happy

 

I do usually wake up briefly at some point and restart my device or switch on a table radio, and remove the headphones.  Ever since I was a child I could not fall asleep without music or talking.  Glad the "sleep timer" is in Place!!!!

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

Or I can hook up my Fuze to my computer speakers and use the sleep feature that way.  Plays music through my little 2.0 system and turns itself off on its own.  Nice addition.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

To use the sleep function in style, you can use this wee beastie.  I like to have something peaceful in the background, perhaps one of the Rhapsody Channels, with a nice classical or something to meditate on.

 

Stereo isn't critical for the background, and I can use rechargeables with the unit.

 

Of course, you can try the sleep function with the dock as well.
