What's the verdict on this one? I'm still running 01.01.06, and it works marginally okay - although it locks up during some videos.
Is it worth upgrading to 01.03.02? The only complaint I see in this thread is that the battery life during playback isn't as good.

well there's that and the rewind works whenever it wants to. But I suppose that's better than it not working at all which was the case before. It's an mp3/media player, the rewind should work period. come on sansa get it together.

I just bought a Sansa View and am new to MP3 players. I have a stupid question: what the heck is firmware? How can I tell if I need to download it or if my View is already up to date? Thanks.

Firmware is the software the runs when you turn on your MP3. (Menus, Playlist, etc).
You sansa will have a disk that should load the tray app (sansaupdater.exe) that will check your current version w/ the available version and update is you wish. If the tray updater does not load on boot, you can load it as follows:
"C:\Program Files\SanDisk\Sansa Updater\sansaupdater.exe" -iloveit

Suggestions for next version of firmware.
I am very content with my Sansa View. I only have difficulties finding the music on my Sansa View. It took quite some time to arange my music database in such a way that I can find my tracks on my view, mainly because of different handling between the sansa view and Windows media player.
A suggestion is to add an additional search in the music list: on "album-artist" similar to windows media player (for example to find al the albums with "various artists").
- It would also help if the MP3 tags could be read back on the screen
- It would be helpfull if scrolling all the artist or tracks could go faster, by first going through the alfabet. My View can handle 4000 music numbers, but I can not scroll all through this number of files for a music track / artist starting with the letter "z".
- there is also a difference between Sansa View and Windows media player, because WMP leaves out the "the" of an album title.
Similar handling in both WMP and Sansa View, I would consider a great improvement.

I'd like to see the ability to create/use subfolders in the video section. That way I could do my dvd's as multiple files and store then sepratly in their own folders instead of all movies lumped into one spot. I realize I could just make one larger combined file but you have a higher risk of the audio getting out of sync the bigger the file in my experience.

I'm having a problem of converting my audio books CD's to my player. I'm so confused as I've tried everything and it does not recognize any of the files on CD

As I understand it the View is only compatible(will recognize them as audiobooks) with audiobooks that have the .aa file extension.
These are only available for purchase from audible.com.
I suppose you could transfer your cd's to your pc and convert the files to .mp3. The problem is you won't have any audiobook functionality at all. The device will treat them like anyother mp3 music file.
