General Error: Transfer: (80070005) on Sansa Fuze 4GB

I cannot get new CD's to import to my Sansa Fuze 4GB.  They transfer to Rhapsody just fine, but when I go to transfer them to the Fuze I get General Error:  Transfer (80070005).  I had this happen once before and I was able to retype the genre or something in the library, but I am unable to get anything to work with new CD's now.

 

Thank You

You can't simply copy CD's with their .cda format over to your Fuze. You have to first 'rip' (or convert) the CD's to a format the Fuze will read (.mp3, .wma, .ogg, or .flac) with a media program like Windows Media Player, Winamp, Media Monkey, dbPoweramp, Exact Audio Copy, just to name a few.

I have used Rhapsody in the past.  I transfer it to Rhapsody and it plays in my Rhapsody library with all the other CD's I transferred.  Before I just clicked and dragged the songs from my Rhapsody library with no problem.  I get the error message when I transfer from Rhapsody to the Sansa Fuze

First, though I doubt it will work, go to Setings/System Settings/USB Mode and change it. There are two modes, MTP and MSC (and Auto Detect, which is useless). Change it to MTP, which is the mode that allows Rhapsody to control the unit,  and try transferring again from Rhapsody.

 

If that doesn't work, transfer without Rhapsody. Rhapsody will have ripped your CDs and put the files somewhere on your computer. Look in Rhapsody's settings to see where it is keeping your music.

 

Then put the unit in MSC mode, which makes your computer see the Fuze like any other disc drive. Two, actually: one for internal memory, one for the microSD slot. Connect, and look in Windows Explorer (Computer or My Computer) to see two drives, one called Sansa Fuze, the next called Removable Disc (that's the card slot for the MicroSD card, whether or not there's actually a card in there). They will be consecutive letters, like E: and F: . Open the Fuze or the microSD (if you have one) drive, open Rhapsody's library folder, and drag your selected album right in there.   Easy, huh?
