Re: slotRadio on Sansa Fuze!

Just to let y'all know, my Sansa Fuze 8GB didn't come with a "slotRadio" thing at all! Do any of you know why?

2 possible reasons:

 

  1. You live in Europe. SlotRadio is only available on models set to US as the 'region', or
  2. The original Fuze preceded the SlotRadio player and cards. Support for it was added via a firmware update. You may need to update to a newer firmware. You can get the latest version here.

I'm from from the U.S. and when I bought the MP3 player it didn't come with the slotRadio thing.

Then as I said, you need to update the firmware in order to use SlotRadio cards in it.

geez.... reading over the last few pages it looks kinda like the firmware updates create more problems than the fix... ?

 

I'm needing SlotRadio to appear in the options on a new Fuze #2.....

 

Is it worth taking the risk..... ?

 

This new Fuze #2 is:  V02.02.26A...

 

Maybe there is a particular version that will get me the SlotRadio option to appear in the menu and not bring on all the bad stuff mentioned in the previous pages...?

slotRadio is supported in your firmware version. Have you inserted a slotRadio card? I've never used the function, but perhaps the slotRadio option only appears when a suitable card is detected in the player.

 

One other thing to try: if you have the region set to Europe, change it to Nortth America. slotRadio is not implemented if the player is set to Europe, I believe

"1,000 Rock songs featuring artists from the Billboard® charts including artists such as Anthrax, Beck, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Coldplay, Corrosion of Conformity, Counting Crows, Duran Duran, Elvis Costello, Eric Clapton, Fall Out Boy, Heart, Korn, Live, Living Colour, Megadeth, No Doubt, Santana, Soundgarden, Squeeze, Steely Dan, System of a Down, Tears for Fears, The Killers, The Who and many more. It's great Rock music, made effortless."

 

"and many more...."????

$40 for random music? No track list, no complete artist list??

 

*Tip* to whoever markets these cards: Provide at the very least a COMPLETE artist list for each slotradio card.

The SlotRadio card is astounding, I haven't been frustrated with "turkeys" in the blend. It's fundamentally the same as the Rhapsody Channels include, on the off chance that you stream a channel on the PC. Not that you need to utilize Rhapsody, Yahoo music had a comparable scene as well. The SR card was a genuine astonishment the first occasion when I looked through the menu.

I'm anticipating future programming with exemplary jazz, for instance. It's an awesome method to recollect pieces I haven't heard in some time.
