Thanks. One more quick question: Does the sdhc card need to be formatted before use? Will the Fuze format the card?

taffguy buy a new ipod. you will be very impressed. If ur not, return it and buy a fuze
fzue is clean and flat, great usability, plays flac and ogg, expandable, lackintg in extra features that the ipod has, with load sounds great.
Another question -- Does the Sansa View have the same SQ performance/features as the Fuze/Clip? Offer FLAC support? B&H has the 16gb View for $102.
Edit: I see the B&H View is a refurb.
Picked one of these up last week from Circuit City. I should have just waited and ordered it online, but I was too excited to get something new after receiving my sr325i's. I am coming from a Sansa e260 which was MORE expensive at the time. The Fuze simply kills the e260 in every way possible in my opinion. Sandisk really stepped it up on this one.
Improvements over the e260: No more loud hiss (Fuze is virtually silent), easier-to-use scroll wheel (e260 scroll wheel was a pain to use), much better SQ (a lot cleaner sounding, but EQ kills the sound if tweaked in any way), and it seems to sync with my WMP a lot better.
I got my 2gig Fuze for 80 and my 4gig e260 for 110. My e260 was rockbox'd and to say the least I was very disappointed with their firmware. I'd say the Fuze is a great performer for its value. I was originally planning on buying the Clip, but the expandable memory got me sold.
First post (and just registered) but long time reader (thanks for many excellent posts btw).
I've been looking at the Sansa Fuze myself, and I have a question I hope you can answer for me.
According to Sandisk's website the Fuze has a "microSD™/microSDHC™ slot for additional content expansion"
Anyone tried using the Fuze with a microSD or MicroSDHC?
I'm interested in knowing, if music on the microSD/MicroSDHC is 'integrated' seamlessly with the music on the on board memory?
From what I've read elsewhere, sometimes navigating music on expanded memory (is that the correct term?) on a MP3-player can be a bit (or a lot) more different from navigating music from the on board memory.
I hope my question makes sense
Also: It he USB cable used with the Fuze a standard USB-cable, or is it some kind of a (expensive, if I want more than one) propriety cable?
Thanks in advance for your help
