Sansa Fuze User Manual and General Information

does the Fuze or any other sansa player read M2 cards?

… i’m getting one for my phone, but am not counting on that working desirably as a music player…

Nope. Different Size & shape.

thanks tapeworm. say, any idea as to why they’d make two different ones that act so similarly but are incompatible? what’s the difference?

There’s a casing (package) difference between the two devices.  The M2 is specific to devices like the SONY family.  The little SanDisk µSD card readers will accept either an M2 chip or µSD card in a unique socket, but the tray of the Sansa is designed for the press-in / press-to-release µSD devices.

This is better for the Sansa, as the µSD card is accessed from outside the device, where the M2 cards are hidden inside, as in with telephones.

µsansa

i’m not sure if i’m getting this. 

i thought that with the sansa media players, the sdhc cards  (are these a type of µSD?) are indeed seated inside the devices. 

you say “the tray of the Sansa is designed for the press-in / press-to-release µSD devices”. the m2 cards press-in / press-release in and out of the phones; how is that different from the micro sd/sdhc cards? 

i got the first two sentences, but after that you lost me. care to explain?

The sansa players only support “micro” SD or SDHC cards, which are much smaller than a standard SD or SDHC card (micro cards are about 1/4 the size).

The physical casing of M2 cards is different from the micro cards and will not fit properly in any Sansa player. As was mentioned, the M2 cards are usually used by Sony devices.

The Sansa players have a slot on their side to slide a microSD(HC) card into, which also has a self locking mechanism. Other devices, like digital cameras, often have (various) card types that are inserted in a slot that is inside the device somewhere with a cover that closes over the top to hold the card in place.

Anyway, the Sansa players only work with microSD or microSDHC cards. So, there’s no reason to look at (or discuss) any other types of cards much futher here.

Right, and the uSD card is slightly recessed when inserted, it does not stick out at all. Most cases (rubber or hard-case) have an opening and you can swap cards without removing the case (usually).

I have a 2GB Fuze with an 8GB uSD  and a 2GB Express with a 4GB uSD and they are both great

I have bought a Sansa MP3 player in Miami, USA.

Here in Brazil, I used for only two days and the MP3 doesn´t work anymore.

I plugged in my USB notebook, but it doesn´t charge.

The Vista reconizes Sansa MP3, but I can´t access your files.

It aske me about format MP3. When i click ok, the Vista can´t format Sansa.

What can I do ? Here in Brazil there isn´t Sansa support. Have I lost US$ 70 ??? 

Thanks.

Eduardo.

If you want some headphones that hav good sound with the Fuze, I got these for my 33rd birthday…they’re not cheap, but in comparison to the highest end headphones out there, they’re quite inexpensive…all I know of is where they were bought…Best Buy…

These ones

They work real well in a noisy environment…I take em to work with me in a warehouse, and I literally have to be yelled at to get my attention :D:D:D:D

They’re $50 and from what I’ve heard, they used to be $75+

Thanks for the info, link and/or opinion, but I fail to see exactly what this has to do with the subject/topic of this thread ( Fuze User Manual & General Information ).

Everyone would be better served if this were posted in one of the many head/earphone discussions elsewhere on the board/forum. :wink:

Eduardo–

Go to Settings/System Settings/USB Mode and change it to MSC. Then try connecting. It should be recognized as two disc drives–one for the internal memory, one for the MicroSD slot. 

i just got a microSDHC along with an adapter and whenever i put it into the SD slot in my computer it doesn’t show up on the computer anywhere. do i need to download something to make it work or how can i make it work cause i can’t figure it out. my computer says it’s compatible with the microSDHC

I went in there & couldn’t find anything that lead remotely to anything that reads ’ Software & user manuals. I don’t know why they make it so difficult to find out simple things. I find this player to be very confusing to use. I am about to return it to the place where I got it & let it become someone elses problem.

Went in where? The 1st post in this thread? The link to the User’s Guide appears to be broken. I’ve reported it, but in the meantime, here’s the real deal:

Fuze User’s Guide

The latest User Manual (fuze_um_0809_eng.pdf) seems to have some formatting problems. (e.g. pages 5-6, 8-14, 16-19, 24-25, 38-40 etc.). Looks like the original document was converted to PDF format, but the conversion didn’t work very well. Earlier versions (e.g. FUZE_UM_0608_ENG.pdf) were formatted much better.

Any chance the latest 0809 version of the User Manual could have it’s formatting fixed to make it more readable?
