I’ve always had the same issue. Both on my home PC and my work PC. Both are XP SP3 and MSC mode. I suspected it might be McAfee AV since both machines had it, but I recently switched to VIPRE (awesome, BTW) at home and it still happens. As soon as I plug the Fuze into the USB port it displays “Writing” on the screen. As far as I can tell however, no files are actually added or changed.
It’s not too big of a deal since I use a wall adapter for charging, but it’s still annoying.
As for refresh time, I haven’t timed it, but it’s around 5-6 minutes for 16GB with around 3000 songs. There’s no way a 12GB MSC mode refresh is taking seconds unless it’s all large video files. Once you get into 1000’s of songs, it takes minutes. Or maybe they’re using MTP, in which case the refresh happens as the files are transferred (which is why MTP transfers are slower).
