Re: Sansa fuze and ubuntu hardy heron

that may be the problem, ill check it out. BTW, how do i make it so that ubuntu sees the fuze as a media player and not a storage device?

Re: Sansa fuze and ubuntu hardy heron

you need to create a file (empty) in the root of the drive called ".is_audio_player"

Re: Sansa fuze and ubuntu hardy heron

I had the same problem with my Fuze: Hardy Heron just couldn't see it nor did it charge. I found the solution here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=5949799&postcount=27).

Basically run the following two commands:

sudo modprobe -r ehci_hcd
sudo modprobe ehci_hcd
As soon as they are run, the Fuze starts charging and the file browser shows up.

Another thing: If you are using rhythmbox to sync your files, you can put "audio_folders=MUSIC/" in the contents of the ".is_audio_player" file to make Rhythmbox put the music files that you drag into it in the "MUSIC" folder instead of the root of the device.


I'm runnint Hardy Heron now, soon to upgrade to Intrepid Ibex, so just ask if you have any questions.
