The track info is great! I have a lot of VBR, and it's nice to look at which codec and bitrate are on the songs. I'm assuming the bitrate I see is an average for the song.

I think I am going to like the folder nav too, although I haven't had much navigating to do yet. Also, I think the text scrolls faster, which is sweet.

I don't think that this rids me of my desire for rockbox but folder view is a big step for the Fuze. I never knew how much I missed the track info option on my ZVM until it was on the Fuze. Good job Sandisk

Seems to me that folders can be the answer for the people that want multiple playlists....and it's almost too simple to screw up, right?

Very nice to see another update. Any word on what's become of the problem with v2 Fuzes playing songs too slowly? Is that an unmentioned "known issue" or has it been silently fixed? (I'm assuming the former...but I want to make sure it's still "known.")

I really don't know. For one thing, there were some that said too slow, others that said too fast....mine always seemed to work fine though There is nothing on the changelog that mentions the issue.

I'm sure it will be brought up in the Sansa forum though.....in fact, I've seen one post there already asking about it....so maybe we'll hear more tomorrow or the next day.

I is confused. I have multiple playlists on my Fuze and have no issues with them. ........

As for the update, nice to see some of the additions they made (Replay Gain is something I have been waiting for), but I agree that this update is not a RockBox killer by any stretch of the imagination. I want my customizable UI!!! Also, gapless playback would be nice.

There are just a staggering number of posts from users on playlist issues on the Sansa forum. A fair amount here, as I recall too...http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...archid=4144257
If you solved the problem then you must be an "advanced" user

Yay me, I guess. The only playlist "issue" I have had is that it take a while to load up a playlist if its not currently "open". Other then that, nothing.

The only one I have ever used is the GoList, and that was just to either shuffle from a smaller sub-set of music, or to listen to a band's albums chronologically.

OH replay gain. I love that. I normalize all my tracks myself but sometimes its a little off still. I'm very curious how well this works. Also glad they fixed the shuffle bug. Thank you for the new update and Thank you Sandisk!

Update: Well it may be just me but it seem the wheel is more sensitive and a lot more responsive then before. As for the media files. when i unplug my fuze it seems to refresh a lot faster then before. I haven't tested everything out yet but this was just the first few things i noticed right away.

I dl'd this new firmware and find it rather unimpressive. I notice no difference with replay gain activated. The overall volume level now seems to be a little less than it was before with RG off even. I'm still stunned they didn't add gapless playback, which was A#1 on my wish list. Probably have to wait for Rockbox, since SanDisk seems to ignore the obvious. I may just revert back to my old firmware.

Well they made it clear that gapless playback was not going to be in this one.

Yeah, and I'm still trying to figure out why. It's ridiculous that something like gapless playback isn't an option when the Fuze first came out.

Do you have replaygain tags on your files? Are they in supported tag types (I doubt older software that used APEv2 tags is going to work)?

Thats normal, and rockbox will do the same thing. You can get clipping if you don't drop the level a dB or two when replaygain is enabled.
