Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

A promised update on April Fools' Day?  Hmmmm.  I must say, these upgrades have been very nice to have.  I wish there was some easy-to-find web page telling us when they come out.  It's not always convenient to connect the player and take the chance of updating it without some prep.

 

Here's why.  Given the time-consuming and manual-intensive process for deleting an unwanted song, I do this instead:  Add it to the "Go List" playlist (which I've configured to do when I hold down the center button) and skip to the next track.  Then later on, when I have time, I go through the list and delete all the songs I've put on it.

 

The only problem with this technique is, updating the firmware clears the "Go List," so you need to remember to delete all those songs before taking a chance on an update.

 

Also, I haven't found a playlist editor yet that can see the "Go List", so I have to do all the deleting on the player and it takes several minutes per track.

Just bookmark the Sansa Fuze forum page -- it's pretty easy to find since you already found it... Smiley Wink

As an aside, it's funny that the url for the Fuze forum page spells it "sansafuse."

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update (March)

Tapeworm writes, "Maybe I'm missing something here, but why would you bother to go through the time to put songs on your player if you're only going to delete them?"

 

Well, here's how mine got that way. I dumped everything on my Mac and my PC/Laptop onto the Fuze; i added some albums later -- from which I had already excerpted some songs that were already on the Fuze. Like a lot of newbies, i got confused between MSC and MTP. And even when I pull all the contents onto a working file on the PC, the songs in each album don't appear in the general song list, but rather, as contents under the  album filename. So there are a lot of duplicates.


Another reason that it would be slightly to moderately easier to be able to zap duplicate songs right from the Fuze: I loaded a few dozen some albums that might have only a couple of songs on them that i would like -- after checking them out on the Fuze. Then i could zap, immediately,the trash, while its title is in front of me (but I might forget that title by the time I bring everything up on the PC File menu).

 

This is not a problem looking for an answer, but an answer to your question. Hope this answers your query.

That's not a bad workaround, at least it sounds like the Fuze won't hose it up on refresh. I'm constantly trying out new music on my Fuze, and if I don't like it I delete it. I'm deleting stuff all the time, so being able to conveniently delete an album would be extremely handy. I suppose for people who listen to the same stuff over and over again, its a non-issue. On my iPod, I used to use the ratings to denote songs to delete, but ratings are also broken on the Fuze. I have enough stuff to remember without having to make "mental notes" to work around all the Fuze's deficiencies.

 

Is there a way to see the contents of the Go List in MSC mode? A search didn't turn up anything too obvious.

Re: Sansa Fuze Firmware Update

I'm so excited about the firmware coming out eventually, that I'm going to do this:
