So, after reading all the random problems people have with this thing, I think I have a slightly different one.
Here is the rundown.
So plugging in the Fuze into my win 7 machine, it connects via MTP by default. After a while, even after updating the firmware, windows started having issues recognizing the device. Just like many others have experienced. I set it to MSC mode, but for some reason, it does not stay in that mode (or charge) unless I a) force MSC mode by using the hold button and b) actually physically hold the “left” button the entire time i want it connected to the computer.
So imagine me sitting there, holding the “left” button, so that I can drag music into the fuze and so that it can charge. If I let go of the left button it goes back to MTP mode, which does not work (windows had problem installing the device messages come up). Even if I set the Fuze to MSC in the settings this thing won’t stay on it unless I physically hold the button. This is ridiculous. Am I supposed to leave a heavy rock on this thing so that the left button stays pressed while it charges and so that I can add music? Windows 7 recognizes the device if I sit there like a dumb ass holding down the left button. I really shouldn’t have to do this at all. Is there any other way to lock in MSC mode? Pleae let me know.
