After getting the “connect to your PC to renew” message, I fired up Rhapsody. It said there was a new version, so I downloaded it. Now the program detects the player normally, except for the problem in the topic title. It even scans the Fuze and does the whole “updating your player” thing. But when I disconnect, the Fuze still says it needs to be renewed. The funny thing is, the tracks will play without any problem. Even more strangely, my Clip and e200 both still work with Rhapsody exactly as they’re supposed to.
I’m using Win 7 and the latest firmware on the Fuze, btw.
