I’m running a new 8 gb Fuze. Had downloaded most recent SMC last week. Seemed to work OK except for occasionally requiring the Fuze to be plugged in and re-plugged in several time to finally recognize the device and the micro sd card. Frequently it would not recoginize the card until several re-plugs. I ahve also had it crash frequently in the middle of converting a file.
Today, it just wont recognize the Fuze at all. I never get an icon for the fuze or an icon for the card…although I do get recognition "FUZE 8GB. " The CONVERT button is not active in this situation. Fnally frustrated, I re-downloaded and installed what is apparently a new version (different graphic /colors anyway). Same deal, just will not recognize the Fuze…either the Fuze or the card…I get no icons for either. I have tried every combinatin/sequencing of rebooting the computer. loading SMC and plugging in the Fuze…no dice.
Then there’s the way that it seems to take 100% of the computer resources, essentially freezing most other apps.
UPDATE: Apparently having a SanDisk Cruizer USB drive plugged in disables Sansa Media Converter! As soon as it’s plugged into one of the USB ports, the icons indcating the fuze disappear from the SMC and “Convert” is diabled. As soon as the Cruiser is pulled out, normal function resumes.
Imagine that?! And it’s SanDisk’s own device that’s causing the issue. Weird, ironic and disappointing.
