Re: FAT

try the following.  Connect the device to the PC in MSC mode.  You can force this by setting the lock switch and pressing and holding the << REW key while connecting to the PC.

 

Next try to run "Chkdsk [driveletter]:  /F"  on the device from a DOS window (Command Prompt).  IF the FAT can be recovered,  the device may work.

 

If not, you need to reformat the device from the computer and start over.

 

THere are other posts that may help you in recoering the FAT using special tools if you dont want to reformat.

Re: FAT

The FAT is the File Allocation Table, incidentally.  This master file indexes the memory of your Fuze, allowing the device to find all of the requisite bits hidden within.  The table can be corrupted occasionally, with the chkdsk utility Sansafix recommends being the tool of choice for repair.
