Well, I was getting the FAT is Corrupt error earlier (and for a few days beforehand), it wouldn’t let me read it or anything.
This is what I had to do (it was all in W7);
1 - do the rewind-button thing (Set the Fuze to ‘hold’, then hold in the << button while you plug in the cable, and hold it in until the ‘Connected’ message appears on the Fuze)
2 - if Windows recognises it as a device and assigns it a drive letter (even if you can’t access it) then it should be okay to do the next part
3 - use this formatting tool to format the Fuze as FAT (choose the 2GB volume). Also, don’t tick “Quick Format”; it might make it miss something =x
That’s what I did, and I can access it now. This will erase all data from it (not including firmware/settings/etc.), but hey, small price to pay to have it working again (supposing this works =X)…
I should maybe also say that the Windows formatting tool (right-click in My Computer, on both XP, Vista and W7) wouldn’t let me format it, but this tool is one I used a long time ago, and it worked perfectly, if a little slowly.
EDIT: Also, on the PC booting note, I think that’s more a general USB device thing. I know my PC doesn’t like to boot if I have a USB storage device plugged in… It might be trying to boot off it but it doesn’t really matter, only means I have to remember to remove the device before shutting down
