Misplaced my beloved Fuze for months and had to drive with the radio. (Ick!) I eventually found it - at the bottom of the washer. It had been in a pair of my jeans in a pocket I didn’t check before washing them. I was smart enough not to try turning it on and dried it out for about two weeks first. The computer (Win 7 64-bit Enterprise) sees it, installed the driver, can access the music, everything, but it says there’s no charge on the battery. Tried a reset and the forced-MSC mode, tried the back ports and a wall charger - nothing.
I really REALLY don’t want to have to replace it. The Clip is a cute alternative, but I love the navigation wheel on the Fuze. I’m hoping somebody has an idea I haven’t tried yet.
