Aside - anyone found a reliable method of getting rid of the slotradio icon? I gather some managed by changing their region, but I have no idea how to do it.
Go into Settings -> System Settings -> Reset Factory Settings. Once you perform the reset you'll be presented with a list of regions to select from. Select anything other than America. If you use the radio functionality you'll probably want to change Settings -> Radio Options -> FM Region to your proper region.
This worked on my V2 before I reverted back to the 02.02.26 firmware.

I get my ratings transferred from MediaMonkey by using the Fuze in MTP mode and doing automatic sync. Beware that syncing back will round half-star ratings to a full star in MM.
No love on the SD card, though, no matter what I tried.

You can sync *back* from fuze to MM? I could never get that to work, even in MTP mode. Can you confirm that you can:
Step 1. Sync ratings from MM to Fuze
Step 2. Change ratings on the Fuze
Step 3. Sync changed ratings from Fuze back to MM

This also works on my V1. Thanks!
Also - it seems the graphic glitch from the last release has been fixed. When the display was lit (e.g. from adjusting volume) and the artist/title/album info was scrolling, whenever it changed lines (from title to album, for instance) a small line of corrupt pixels appeared on the album image. Kinda freaky how it did it with Warren Zevon's "Excitable Boy"...it looked like a cigarette magically appeared in his mouth.

Affirmative. This is with Rev 1 8GB Fuze, Vista Home Premium, MediaMonkey Gold 126.96.36.1996, MTP mode, auto-sync.
only "Delete tracks that aren't on the Auto-Sync list from the device" checked. Sync from device to pc greyed out.
Auto-Conversion: Any Incompatible to MP3
Sync tracks to "\Music\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<Title>"
Copy playlists checked (options: only Library playlists, destination \Playlists\)
Use only the first genre... checked.

With the current update, fixing the video issue and its integrated resume feature was a big change.
As for the SlotRadio update, I like the red icon. I was surprised at the ruffled feathers, but I like SlotRadio and SlotMusic. That scroll wheel blazes past it fast enough too.
Know what I've found? There is a glitch with the SR icon: Insert a SlotMusic card, and you will lose the SR icon, but there is no SlotMusic icon in the rolling icon list! All we have is an open space with SlotMusic listed to the right. Got to fix that. As I endeavor to break everything I can (that's my thing with the Sansa, you see), If I plink the SM card out while the GUI is active, the red SR icon appears immediately, without a database refresh.
I want a Sansa Lil' Monsta icon in the GUI for Settings.
On the new Clip+, if you look closely at the SR icon, it changes to "SM" automatically, dropping the SlotRadio option from the menu.

Um, when the new firmware makes a feature unusable (replay gain), I would expect a fix little sooner. Maybe a quick patch or something. This isn't just a bug that's a little annoying. There's an entire feature I can't access with the current firmware.

Completely agree with lostinsound. The amount of days that a firmware has been released is irrelevant when it renders features useless.
I think the appropriate answer should have been to downgrade to the previous firmware and wait for a fix or a new working firmware.
