Re: Refreshing Your Media

[ Edited ]

I've always had the same issue.  Both on my home PC and my work PC.  Both are XP SP3 and MSC mode.  I suspected it might be McAfee AV since both machines had it, but I recently switched to VIPRE (awesome, BTW) at home and it still happens.  As soon as I plug the Fuze into the USB port it displays "Writing" on the screen.  As far as I can tell however, no files are actually added or changed.

 

It's not too big of a deal since I use a wall adapter for charging, but it's still annoying.

 

As for refresh time, I haven't timed it, but it's around 5-6 minutes for 16GB with around 3000 songs.   There's no way a 12GB MSC mode refresh is taking seconds unless it's all large video files.  Once you get into 1000's of songs, it takes minutes.  Or maybe they're using MTP, in which case the refresh happens as the files are transferred (which is why MTP transfers are slower).

Still, this is strange. 4-ish minutes is a typical refresh time, but back to your original post, it shouldn't be doing this if your just charging and not adding or removing any content. I hesitate to indict the firmware update because I did the same update on my Fuze. And just for the sake of curiosity, I just connected my Fuze, then clicked "safely remove hardware" as I try to always remember to do, and unplugged it, and almost instantly it was back on the FM radio screen where it had been last night when I shut it off. So I don't think it is the firmware update doing this to your Fuze, but I'm not a programmer either.

 
Yeah, I always click on safely remove hardware, too. But yesterday, my girlfriend accidentally pulled my Fuze out of the computer without safely removing hardware, and it didn't do the refresh screen (I put it in just to charge, not to put anything on it). There was no ill effects to my Fuze, but I don't want to not safely remove it all the time. But that was interesting. I think it has to do more with the firmware than with AVG.

Re: Refreshing Your Media

I'm having the same problem.

 

"Refreshing your media" screen appears for around 30 minutes every time I unplug the player from the PC - even if I've only been charging it and haven't added or deleted any music.

 

Unless I can get this problem sorted out I feel I may have to send the player back.

 

I have an 8GB player and the lastest firmware. PC has Windows Vista Premium. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Refreshing Your Media

It happens to me too. Its a bug. If you need it to charge it and then listen to it immediatly after you disconnect, check into a wall charger, Its all I use to charge my fuze.

You are having a bigger issue. Check out the stuff about the chkdsk utility and check your id3tags these can cause problems.
