Default Fuze skipping slowly between tracks

I have just bought a new 8gb Fuze and 16gb microSDHC card (SanDisk). Both worked a treat (excellent sound and functionality). I have 1,300 mp3 tracks on the Fuze and 3,400 on the microSDHC card.

The only drawback was the time to skip to the next track which took between 8-10 seconds on the microSDHC card but not on the Fuze itself?

I tried:
Removing cover art
Deleting ID3v1 tags and leaving only ID3v2.3 tags
Updated the Firmware to V01.02.31P
None of these made any difference

But after reading articles here about reformatting the microSDHC card, I formatted the microSDHC card through the DOS command to
format e: /FS:FAT32 /A:32K
(with e: as the microSDHC card drive letter)

I then put the music into about 10 folders (don't think that made any difference)

It worked a treat! It now skips tracks instantly (ie less than 1 second)

The "Refreshing your media" is a lot quicker now I added 100mb of mp3s to the microSDHC disk which was 90% full and it took 9 minutes for a total of 4,800 songs on the two disks.
