The Sansa Fuze+ is a portable media player manufactured by SanDisk as part of their Sansa line of MP3 players. The Fuze+ was released on September 1st 2010,[1] and is the direct successor to the Sansa Fuze. The Sansa Fuze+ is available in five colours: Black, Blue, Purple, Red, and White. Internal storage capacities of the player vary by colour.[2]


The Fuze+ supports playback of common audio file formats, including MP3, WMA, Secure WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, and AAC, as well as Audible, and Podcast formats. Tag data and album art associated with audio files are shown on the Fuze+'s 2.4-inch QVGA display during playback. The Fuze+ features video playback as well and is able to handle HD videos; however the player only supports MP4 and WMV video files. JPEG and PNG images can be viewed on the Fuze+ although this feature is not heavily advertised by SanDisk. The most notable feature of the Sansa Fuze+ is the built-in micro SDHC card reader that allows the player's memory to be expanded by up to 32 GB. The reader will also take Sansa's slotRadio cards. Additional hardware features of the Fuze+ include a built-in FM radio and a built-in microphone. Both the radio and microphone are able to record up to five hours of audio onto the player if space allows. Unlike its predecessors that used a proprietary USB connector, the Fuze+ uses a micro USB-type type B plug to connect to computers and recharge the battery. The use of a micro USB connector makes the Fuze+ plus more universal than Sansa's previous players, but makes it incompatible with older accessories designed specifically for Sansa players.

Storage Capacity[edit]

The Fuze+ is available with varying amounts of internal storage space: 4, 8, and 16 gigabyte models are all sold. The Fuze+ also comes in five different colors, however the availability of internal storage capacities vary based on the color of the player
