That’s an interesting one. The codec issue is a possibility, but seems a bit strange doesn’t it? I have all those happy things on my PC: Quicktime, the latest Java updates, and RealNetworks too. I grew up fighting compatibility in media players over the years, and having the “whole enchilada” has always proven safest.
Well, actually, I grew up with the largest “media compatibility” issues being solved with an Eico tube tester, Waterman O-scope and VTVM, but times have changed.
In my case, I upgraded the Sansa Media Converter as part of a compatibility experiment: I wanted to load the new 4.236 version with 4.220 still resident, to see if anyone would have issues with the change in this manner (rather than uninstall 4.220 first). The bulldog method works, with a mask wording of “maintenence” popping up once too.
Have you tried opening the converter with the Fuze connected?
I am currently using MTP mode, and the application’s happy. Try the two modes on your PC.
Oh, and the “Convert” button will not be available until the SMC sees what kind of device is connected. I swap between the e280v2 and Fuze.
