got my new fuze 8 a few days ago and was loading from WMP,
but it filled up with about 600 tracks. went to sanza help and
and they said my Kbps were too low (they were at 28), so i
changed to 128 Kbps (their recommendation) but the same
thing happened. am i going to haveto redo my whole library
at 128Kbps to get 2000 tracks in my fuze? if so how do i do
that?

128kbps is about 145 hours of music on an 8GB, maybe a bit less. Depending how long your songs are you'll get a different number on the player.

When you rip tracks you pick a bitrate. 128kbps is a good compromise on size, but I wouldn't go any lower. If you want more then 145 hours, buy a flash card. They're really cheap.

have you upgraded the firmware to the newer .26 version?. Along with some enhancements it increases the Fuze's song limits to 8000. Not much help to you now I know but I just wanted you to know FYI. 600 tracks @128kbps IS well within the Fuze's limits. Do you have other content on your Fuze...ie: pics, video that could be taking up space?. Are you putting album art in your tagging, increasing the size of the files..although I don't think that would be causing the problem. I'm thinking that most of your music collection was ripped at 320kbps or greater hence the larger file sizes. To get more songs on your player you either need to re-rip your collection @128kbps or find 128kbps versions of your music?. Hope this helps!

"128kbps is about 145 hours of music on an 8GB, maybe a bit less.:

I figure around 18 hours of music per GB at 128 kbps. So that works out to around 144 hours. If the songs average 4 minutes or less, then you should be able to put at least 2,000 songs on the player.

Try formatting the player using the format command in the player menu. Set the USB mode to MSC. Connect the player to the pc, and let it charge fully. Download the latest firmware and extract the file, and drop the file to the root of the player. Disconnect the player, and let it do the fimware update and power down on its own. After that, connect the player, then use Windows Explorer to copy and paste folders of files to the player.
