I just want my songs to play randomly, or 'shuffle' and can't get to the shuffle option. I got to "tools" -> "play mode" but it only comes up with "Normal" or "Repeat", where as I believe that's where the "shuffle" option should be? I've tried going to the "play mode" in the music file, in the file search nagivation screens, I am absolutely stuck!
Thanks in advance!
If you press the tool button and then go to play mode when your on the screen that comes up when the music is playing there should be an option to do many types of shuffle including all songs or just the songs in that folder.

To activate the shuffle feature:
1. Go into the Settings > Play Mode > Rand Folder.
2. Go back to the menu.
3. Turn off your player, (with the slider on the side, not the middle button.)
4. Turn it back on, and hold down the middle button. The screen will turn off.
5. Hold the middle button down again, and shuffle should work.
The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.
Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.
Start playing a track. Click anywhere on screen. Options should show at top of screen. Click on the tool symbol (should look like a bolt.) Click on repeat mode. Click random. This should solve your problem.
For the Sansa Fuze, the selection Shuffle Mode is correct, just like you told:
In Main Menu > Music > Submenu > Music Options > Shuffle Mode:
1. Select Shuffle.
2. Use thumbwheel to choose Shuffle on or Shuffle off.
(to play songs in random order, set Shuffle to ON).
3. Press Select to change the Shuffle mode.
There is indeed a RANDOM option for this MP3 player. To access it play a song, while the song is playing press the button on the side of the player (the MODE button) Your screen will change. Select the option PLAY MODE. Then scroll down and select RANDOM.
This is determined by the play mode. When playing a song press the MODE button on the side of the player. Then select PLAY MODE. Then choose which option best suits you. Repeat All will play through all of your folders and sub folders and Random will play anything randomly as far as I've been able to tell.
There is a RANDOM option. But I've found that it is restricted by folder. It's best used when you've moved all your music into one folder.
To turn this option on,
1. play a song
2. press the button on the side
3. select PLAY MODE
4. Choose RANDOM
I think I found the solution... to get into the "playing mode" submenu, a song has to be playing when you hit the mode select button. Otherwise, if a song is stopped/paused, you get the "stop mode" menu.
Once in the "playing mode" menu, select "repeat", and then scroll all the way to the right to get the shuffle/random mode.
It is stuck on "Repeat One" - refer to p.23 of your user's manual -
You can set your player to play music tracks randomly (Shuffle All ) or repeatedly (Repeat One or
Repeat All ).
1. From the main menu, select Settings > Play mode.
2. Use the VERTICAL TOUCH STRIP to scroll up or down the options.
3. Press § to select an option.
4. Press § again to deselect an option.
While you are playing music you can see the following active play mode screen.
