First, Hi to everyone as that’s my first post. Glad to see a strong community here.
I’ve just bought a fuze 4Gb with firmware 1.1.11.
I’ve had an old micro sd card of 1Gb, which does function OK in all my other device.
but not so my my sansa fuze. Let’s go to the simpliest situation I could have where the problem arises.
I’ve formatted my sd card with FAT32 : (yes I’m on linux and considered linux support before buying)
$ sudo mkfs.vfat -F 32 /dev/sdk1
It’s formatted OK. I checked it :
$ sudo fsck /dev/sdk1
fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
dosfsck 2.11, 12 Mar 2005, FAT32, LFN
/dev/sdk1: 0 files, 1/248184 clusters
To be more precise, I do this while the fuze is in MSC mode (no MTP for me please) and the card inserted. But in order to avoid the freeze, I have to:
turn the fuze off
insert the sd card(it is really well inserted, with a click noise)
plug the fuze to the computer
turn the fuze on
Linux then automatically mount both the sd card and the internal memory. Before formatting, I unmount the sd card of course.
Now that the card is freshly formatted, I unmount the sd card and the internal memory then switch off the fuze and finally physically pull its plug off the computer.
Then I sitch the fuze on again. First, the internal memory is quickly updated. And then a second “refreshing your media” begins, but it is frozen nearly immediatly.
No reset is able to get beyond that.
Could it be a problem of THIS micro sd card of mine (I have no other to test yet) or what?
The internat memory does not have any problem.
I then try firmware 1.1.22 as well. That’s frozen as well (but just after the blue ring of let is light on – there is no refreshing message). Also, I can not access to the fuze at all with the sd card inserted if I apply the protocol above.
In order to get back a functional fuze I need to pull off the card, and reset the fuze a first timeso that the refreshing process begins but gets frozen, reset a second time and then the refresh completes and everything is back to normal.
I keep firmware 1.1.22 (to get flac support) from now on.
