I think I’m in the same boat, but sunk deeper–I’ve copied my iPod files onto mediamonkey (recommended by CNET as being compatible with Sansa Fuze), but I can’t get my new Fuze (4 GB pink) to sync with mediamonkey. I’ve also tried Rhapsody–no luck there, either, plus it keeps freezing up my computer. I’ve tried going through"My Computer," I’ve tried clicking and dragging everything and anywhere in sight.
I had absolutely no problems with iPods and iTunes, but this is driving me crazy!
I pounced on this thread, thinking it might help me, but Ihaven’t the faintest idea what MSC mode is, or what Winamp is.
HELP??? What am I doing wrong?"
Are you songs in MP3 format? That is the only format that iTunes uses that will play on the Fuze. Stop trying to sync with the player, and just copy files to the player. This can be done in MTP or MSC mode. Make sure that the files are in a format the Fuze can play before you copy them to the Fuze. If your itunes music is not in mp3 format, then rather than trying to convert it to mp3, use your original CDs and make mp3 files from them using Windows Media Player. Next copy the mp3 files to the player using My Computer or Windows Explorer. Your mp3 files are probably in the folder my documents, my music, or something like that. Don’t try to sync the player with Windows Media Player(you might be asking for trouble if you do). When you start Windows Media Player(it is already on your pc), click the rip tab and choose mp3 for the format. Click the rip tab again, and choose 192 or 256 for the bitrate. If you click the rip tab again, you can click on options(or something like that) to set other ripping options. This is all so simple, but some people try to make it complicated by trying to sync the player.
