I’ve had my 4gb Fuze since summer and had no problems with it, always synching through windows media player. Recently, however, I’ve been having a synching problem. This, however, appears to be due to my computer rather than the player, but I figured I’d try asking here, anyway. On my laptop, the device is not recognized at all when the USB mode is auto-detect, and does not work in MTP mode. Only by switching to MSC mode can I access it. I cannot view any of the files on it through Windows Explorer, though I can still synch files to both it and the card as mass storage devices through Windows Media Player, after telling it to treat the devices as media players. These problems developed shortly, though not immediately, after purchasing an 8gb microSD card and upgrading the FW.
The Fuze seems to work fine on other computers, showing up as a Sansa Fuze with its picture and everything w/o any software installation needed. I’ve tried the basic things on my laptop such as reinstalling WMP 10, upgrading to WMP 11, running a virus scan, adware scan, checking for any conflicting programs, uninstalling the USB drivers and letting them reinstall, etc. Other USB devices give me no trouble, though I have no other MTP-enabled devices on hand I can test with it. Short of reformatting the hard drive, which isn’t worth it in this case, what suggestions can you give me to get my laptop to work with my Fuze again?
Sorry that I’m asking this here, as it is a problem with my laptop rather than the player, but I figured it would still be a good place to get some insight, thanks!
