Default Sansa Fuze Firmware 01.01.22/02.01.17

The new Firmware is here guys. Read the official announcement at http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/boar...thread.id=9473

Its confirmed now, that there is a revision 2 of the Fuze existing - so before you attempt a manual flash, be sure which revision you got, as there is a separate firmware version for each of them! Its pretty much all explained in the post of the SanDisk official linked above.

I still don't get why they didn't add more id3 information such as file type, bitrate, and the album year?

I was hoping, that they could accomplish making use of the year tag too, since I think this is a very important piece of information - now I got to keep on putting the year in the album tag..

I'm kind of disappointed by the firmware - had hoped for more. The bugs that were fixed didn't apply to me anyway or I didn't care about them much. And the new sleep timer? Who needs it?

What's the difference between sleep and shutdown? I played with that function a while ago and they basicly did the same thing lol.

I'm not sure, but I believe shutdown turns the player off, when it has been idle for a certain amount of time and sleep turns it off regardless of whether its idle. Like if you fall asleep listening to music, it can safe you battery. LoL - great new function that must have taken months to develope. I bet, they are researching on how to use the year tag RIGHT NOW.

(Just joking - somehow, the function is useful, of course.)

Shutdown comes into play when it's been on "pause" for your set amount of time....whether an album ends, or a podcast, or if you pause it and forget....you're right about the sleep function....it's popular with the audiobook users in particular.
The Clip has had it , so yeah, not much work probably to incorporate it into the Fuze. I'm glad to see it....since I have so much more music on the Fuze than the Clip. Now I can choose which one to fall asleep to....that's as close as I get to a playlist..but hey, your GoList can be 200 tracks now
I can't say I really need a year listing on the Fuze, but the filetype and bitrate would be cool. I'd rather see that than album art(which I don't worry about if it's not there)The art is cool, but over-rated, IMO

Revision 2 has a different PCB (printed circuit board) all the same functionality... One theory was that it would help them up the file limit. However, they're saying it will be updated to 8,000(from 4,120)next year for everyone, so I don't really know

The V2 firmware is reported to have have CPU instructions that cannot be run on the V1, so its probably a new CPU model and possibly other hardware.

You know I'm not a happy camper finding this info out after I bought my Fuze. To me it's like v1/v2 e200's arguement all over again. Who's to say that there won't be some compatibility issues between the 2 down the road?. I'm gonna be really PO'ed if my friend can run something on his Revision 2 Fuze that I can't on my Revision 1??.

You might, down the road, have Rockbox on yours and it might not work on his

oopshaha! Too late! I didn't see this post while I was loading some music onto my Fuze (v1) then opened the Sansa Updater from system tray. It must have figured out what version I had because it offered up the v1 update (16mb) which I let it install.

I'm definitely going to like the sleep feature! So what is this GoList? Is it like a playlist created "on the go"?

From what funman says, sounds like it has the SoC as the v2 Clip, but it is hard to tell.

Thats what I'm thinking too. I'm glad, I don't got a v2 Fuze for this exact reason. I doubt, that the v2s got any improvements that are worth mentioning, but only time will tell, I guess.

I don't believe you can tell without opening them and turning them on.
