I know there are dozens of threads about the same subject, but believe me, I’ve been through them all (or at least most) and tried every suggestion going.
Whenever I plug the Fuse in to My Computer I get a Device Not Recognized or similar error. The Fuze is fine, as it works OK with my work PC and laptop, unfortunately it won’t talk to my main PC that I need it to.
So far I have completely removed all USB devices (inc. hidden) in Safe Mode. I’ve reinstalled Windows XP completely and run every update to SP3 and WMP 11. I’ve tried disabling USB2, all onboard USB (SIS7001/7002) and tried a PCI USB Card (VIA based). I’ve tried front ports, rear ports, external powered hub. I’ve tried updating firmware, formatting and resetting to factory defaults. Auto, MTP and MSC modes. Probably other things too!
The Fuze just shows as a hidden unknown device. Doesn’t even say connected on the Fuze itself, although it does show charging. Once it flashed up as A Fuze 4GB and I got the message saying I had to reboot for my hardware to work. I did and it didn’t. Another time it did flash up a drive letter briefly, but then vanished within seconds. Whenever the Fuze is connected Device Manager sort of bounces, in that it refreshes every couple of seconds.
Where do I go now? Every other memory card or USB drive I’ve ever used works flawlessly, so why is the Fuze not showing up? All suggestions appreciated, or it will have to go back to the shop. The next step I can see is buying a new PC, and I’m not about to do that for the sake of an MP3 player.
