Default Questions about the Fuze+ controls.

So, my Samsung P2 finally went to the mp3 graveyard, aka "the junk drawer". After this very sad occurence I decided to go low tech and I purchased a Clip to replace it, quickly adding another one to give me more space. These two recently joined the P2 in the drawer because they both locked up beyond help within 2 months of each other. I did my research and looked at the players that are compatible with Rhapsody ( a major requirement for me). I finally settled on the 16gb Fuze+, even after reading all the negative reviews about the touch pad.
With all that being said, I am having a few minor problems and I am wondering if I am overlooking something or if I will just have to live with it. I use my player for over 8 hours a night at work, so I have about 3,000 songs on it. I always use the shuffle function and this has always worked fine on all my other players. I understand how the program works and I expect some sort of repeat of certain songs but this thing seems to want to play the same songs ALL the time. And, when I shut it down for the night and turn it on the next day it starts off on a screen with the last 10 songs played so I have to go to the songs screen and tediously tap through songs to find something. Am I missing something, do I have something set wrong? Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

It appears that shuffle is incompetently implemented by some vendors. A competently implemented shuffle would play every song once and only once—e.g., Rockbox’s shuffle. I never use Rhapsody. I just tried shuffle with the Fuze+, and it appears to work fairly well.

For that shuffle test, I chose music->songs->Shuffle List. I tapped on the touchpad to shuffle forward some songs, turned off the Fuze+, turned on the Fuze+, tapped on the touchpad to shuffle forward some songs, turned off the Fuze+, and turned on the Fuze+. Both times when I turned back on the Fuze+, the last song was correctly displayed. My Fuze+ is in MSC mode. Which version of the firmware are you using?
