Does the fuse+? I saw a ton of amazon reviews with people angry that it did not.

 

Also does the fuse / fuse+ display the file name or the song name from the metadata?

No, but the Fuze+ does . . . Smiley Tongue

 

with the latest firmware 02.38.06.

 

Sorry, i didn't mention this in my previous reply. The Amazon reviews might have been from before this firmware version was released.

From the metadata (ID3 tag) if present. If no tag exists I'm not sure, but it should display the file name then.

Any option to display the songs with their filenames instead of metadata?

Re: Devices that support folder navigation

The Sandisk firmware does folder navigation based on its tag database, so if your songs are improperly tagged or for some other reason the tag database isn't set up correctly, then the folder navigation might not work right. Rockbox, a free alternative operating system provides true folder navigation. Putting Rockbox on a player though might make it permanently unable to play protected files. Rockbox.org

I don't know what you get, but I'm getting a headache reading about the joys and advantages of Rockbox in every one of your posts, whether it's relevant or not.
