Difference between Fuze 4g and 8g?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The obvious answer is, duh, 4g; but sometimes different sized units are different generations, such as the Touch 8vs16 where the 16/32 has a newer OS (despite being advertised as the same gen). Or occasionally generations will have quirks not present in previous ones (I read a couple reviews of the 8g where people said it had problems not present in their 4g, but that could be isolated incidents unrelated to the model difference)..so just wondering if anyone knows of generational/production differences or issues worthy of note between the two, or if it's just the size and that's that.

Also: when you add an SD card, is the additional memory seamlessly integrated into the storage/file system, or accessed separately?

Also I love you.

None when only considering GB sizes. However there are version 1's and version 2's of the Fuze and the Version 1's are quite sought after due to the fact that you can stably Rockbox (thrid party firmware) it, unlike the Fuze v2.

Fuze = very good value for money with it's default firmware but fantastic value for money when Rockbox'ed. The value is even greater of course due to the expansion card. If you require something smaller for say exercise, the Clip+ is great value as well and although on the Rockbox official site says it isn't a stable Rockbox version, many people have done it regardless with good results:

Anyway, the additional storage via MicroSD is defined as a separate 'drive' in Windows for drag and drop but in the player library it's seamless. You can access via folders if you like as well of course or via Artist / Album etc...

Awesome info, chinesekiwi. I'll definitely check out the Rockbox firmware. Thanks a bunch. =)

I'll probably get a V2, since I'm likely gonna use store credit I have with an online retailer to buy it, but it looks like Rockbox may have a stable version for it at some point, since there's already an unstable one. Here's hoping, because it looks great.

edit: I just remembered I have a c250 lying around that I literally found, but never used because for some reason I can't fully format it. Like, there are files that won't come off. It appears to be foreign firmware or something because the interface is all Asian characters. Maybe I'll experiment with it and Rockbox. Bah, not supported.
