My sansa fuze + is now being read by rhapsody as a sansa fuze p. What’s the difference? it will no longer download videos and it tells me that it is unable to be authorized. So i can no longer download new songs or play the ones on there since the authorization is expired on it. any ideas?
Notice that Rhapsody lists your Fuze+ as something all in CAPITAL letters as E:SANSA FUZE P or something similar?
This is because your Fuze is being addressed as a flash drive, it is communicating in MSC Mode.
Unplug your device, and go to Settings >System Settin gs > USB Mode and select MTP. Plug in again, and your Fuze will show up in the sources pane of Rhapsody as Sansa Fuze+ , listed in Caps and Smalls. The device needs to be recognized as a portable media device that can handle subscription media. This is MTP, or Media Transfer Protocol mode.
Give this a try, and it should be back to normal. If not, let me know, and we can repair the MTP system.
