Velo, Rapido | This is about a few different things.
I got a new ogg player for Christmas. (That’s how it works: I get Christmas presents, Noah gets Hannukah presents) and on the first go round I managed to completely bork the thing.
Broke it so’s I had to send it back to SanDisk. Got it back, plugged it in and started the whole thing over again. It seems to hang on syncing with Banshee.
I’ll explain this more, I swear, but for now, I just want to note that mounting it and manually deleting the “.m3u” playlists that Banshee synced — then I was able to turn it on. I suspect that it was choking trying to index those or something.
Why the Fuze?
I genuinely liked my first Ogg player, an iAudio 7, but when it died (just bricked up one day — let me know if you want to try unbricking it) I decided that I wanted something that would support multiple playlists. I can’t really run because my foot is still oddly enflamed, but when I can run, good music makes a huge difference. I probably don’t actually need to explain why a person might want more than one playlist.
I was also looking forward to the larger screen, though honestly, the Fuze makes poor use of all that space.
