I have an 8GB Sansa Fuze (v2). When I connect it to the computer (Windows XP), it looks like it’s connected fine. It starts charging and gives the little popup “What would you like to do with this device?” However, when I go to [My Computer], it isn’t assigned a Drive Letter. Prior to reformatting my computer and device (I do both regularly) and updating the firmware, it was assigned the drive (F:). (I last reformatted a month ago) Now it’s just treated like a folder that I dragged and dropped there. Also, when I go to [Computer Management] (Right Click [My Computer] > Manage) and go to [Disk Management], it isn’t detected as being existent on my computer. It isn’t even detected by the Disk Defragmenter, when my flash drive is. The Fuze is detected but at the same time not detected. I’ve been told that because of this, the device may not fully be able to function properly, like when Syncing with WMP.
Either way I put the USB mode (MTP or MSC), it isn’t fully detected. I have the Sansa Fuze driver installed, and I’ve re-installed it twice, with no avail.
Also, would this have anything to do with the fact that now, when I sync, the Fuze detects the music files as being twice as large than they really are? I put 3GB of music on it, and it’s detected as 6GB.
