I am using Ark Linux 2008.1 with KDE 3.5.9. When I first purchased this Fuze, I bought it for the Linux support. It worked quite well with the USB Mode set to Auto-Detect. However, it no longer shows up on my desktop; in fact, the Fuze doesn’t seem to know it’s connected to a computer. It charges, but lets me operate it as if it weren’t plugged in to the computer. I’ve tried plugging it in under MSC mode and MTP mode (I understand that MSC is the recommended for Linux?). Also, it doesn’t show up on the desktop or in my /etc/fstab file. In addition, when I do a dmesg from a terminal, it does not seem to show a MP3 player or flash drive being connected, which I find odd because every MP3 player that I’ve connected to any Linux distro has always shown up as a flash drive.
I recently found out about the new 1.01.15 firmware, and I’d like to be able to upgrade because I’m a BIG fan of Ogg Vorbis and I’ve already ripped all my CDs into Ogg Vorbis format, but I can’t do this unless I can get it to recognize that it is connected to the computer.
