USB set to MSC (always).
Installed Windows Media Player 11 (on my orphan XP). Held ‘on’ switch for sixty seconds, released then held ‘on’ and plugged in to computer. For the two middle ages players the response are ‘unrecognized USB device’ no response but I can find it ‘my computer’ on disk drive J. Attempting to access drive J leads, every time, to computer asking me if I want to format drive? If yes then I’m told that windows failed/can not format drive. And back to do I want to format?
Installed Sansa Updater 2.1.3. This does not recognize any appropriate device. (For all three.)
The oldest Fuze elicits no response at when plugged. Not even as unrecognized USB device.
Windows Explorer no longer recognizes players. Sansa Fuze no longer renames drive as Sansa Fuze.
The last, newest Fuze (bought ~18 months ago) is fine…so far.
Also tried the program “DeviceRecoverySetup”. Nothing at all happens.
Other common proceedures available? Or the un-common? (Does anyone else still use Fuzes?)
