Well, I bought an 8gb Fuze this morning from Best Buy, got home and set about downloading my mp3’s. All of my music is ripped from CD’s, ie no iTunes, Rhapsody, etc. I went through and made sure I was downloading less than 8 gb, I think it was about 6.75 gb of music, I think around 1,500 or so tunes. Everything was going fine, then around song 919 I got an error that I beleive said I couldn’t write (I didn’t have access rights) and the name of the song it was on. The error message asked me to skip, skip all, or cancel I beleive. I skipped, thinking maybe something was corrupted with my current song. All of the other songs behind that also had the same error. Finally, I skipped all, and cancelled the downloads. I tried to start from where the error happened, same error. I went further down my song list, same error.
So I decided to see if the 919 files I had DL’d would work. I made sure it wasn’t transfering anything and disconnected the Fuze from my computer. First the Fuze sync’d the music database (took about 60 secs, then went really slowly through the menus to get to album level.
When the first song came up, it played less than a secoond of the song, and wouldn’t play anymore. I tried to forward, and the player is basically super slow, and took about 20-30 secs to move to song 2 but never played a note. Tried this numerous times with numerous artists/albums, same results.
Next, I tried to delete all of the songs I had DL’d so I could start from scratch. I got another error (and I apologize, I don’t recall what this error was but I think it had to do with not having access).
So I did a hard shutdown and rebooted the Fuze. Same results through 3 more reboots. So I decided to format the player using the format option in the system settings. It formatted and shut the player down afterwards. When I powered it back up, the opening screen came up but it stays on the opening screen for a long time (30+ secs). When it gets past the opening screen I get the message “Not enough Disk space for music DB, please free 90 mb.” Also, now my computer does not recognize the device.
I DL’d the latest firmware at the start. As it stands, it shuts off right after it tells me it needs the 90 mbs for the music DB. When I attach it through my computer with the USB cable, it gives me a Window - No Disk error - Exception Processing Message c0000013 parameters 75b6bf9c 4 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c - Cancel/Try Again/Continue.
