I have an old Inspiron 2650 laptop that I use to store and play all my music. I also use it for syncing up my music to my mp3 players. I’m using Window Media Player 11.
I just got a new Sansa Fuze and I’m having trouble getting it to work with Napster-to-go on my Inspiron. Note that I did get the Fuze to connect with Napter on my wife’s newer Dell B130, although I never got around to trying to transfer any tracks to it.
I understand that the Fuze needs to be installed as an MTP device to work with Napster-to-go. I’m pretty sure that the problem that I’m having is that the Inspiron is installing it as a USB storage drive. Note that I have the USB option set to auto-select on the Fuze. On Napster’s FAQ site, I found instructions for manually updating the driver for the Fuze to be an MTP device. However, when I try to do this and I get to the list of drivers to use, there is no MTP device in the list. There is only “Disk Drive”.
The Inspiron came with USB1 ports. I have a Belkin USB2 PCMCIA card to upgrade my ports to USB2. Is there any way that I can get the MTP drivers installed on my laptop so that I can manually set the driver to MTP for my Fuze? Any other advice or opinions?
