Might as well add this link to the first post and make it a sticky.;)

I guess a new thread is in order - and less confusing.

BTW, I didn't know the Fuze+ supports RDS - very nice!

I wouldn't recommend this update personally. My Fuze+ had 1.27.02 when I got it and worked fine. When 1.29.03 came out the player would freeze for several seconds everytime I brought up my music list or switched to a different sort. Sadly 1.30.01 did not resolve this and I had to go back to 1.27.02 to get it to work normally again. I have the 16GB player and it has about 10GB of music on it.

Now I actually like the Fuze+ but I'd seriously wait on upgrading the firmware until that line in the known issues section goes away that states "Sluggish performance with full library" goes away. My library may not be full but I imagine it's the same bug.

First post updated, for the few Fuze+ owners we have here.

Excellent! The firmware did its job perfectly and it saved a ton of headache / hardship by doing a manual installation instead of working with the crappy and slow updater sandisk uses. Thanks! :)

Does this update sort out most of the complaints people had with the player?

(Also does the Fuze+ have go lists?)
