Well its working again, this is nuts could it be the 4GB since every time I insert the disk it goes bonkers, any site on this and feed back would be appreciated.

 

I wouldn't be so quick to blame the card; it's a rare instance when they fail and even more rare that you get a bad one new. More likely is the fact you have something on the card that the Fuze is choking on, like a corrupted song file, bad (or wrong format) ID3 tag, or questionable content received from file-stealing sharing sites such as Lime or Frostwire.

 

I'd try running ChkDsk (error-checking) on both the internal memory and the card and see if anything turns up. Then get MP3Tag or another dedicated tagging program and make sure all tags are ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1 format. While you're into the tags, delete any and all information in the Comments field. This can really screw with the Sansa wee brain. Smiley Wink

Re: Sansa started freezing up

If you're attempting this with the card in the player, I believe the player has to be set to MSC mode for Windows to be able to format it.

Re: Sansa started freezing up

Let me see if I understand you correctly, if the card is in the player, it wasn't it was in the adapter inserted into my pc.

Re: Sansa started freezing up

OK, you might indeed have a defective card. Just for fun though, try switching your player to MSC mode and formatting the card in there.

Re: Sansa started freezing up

Did you attempt to format the card through Windows while it was in the player as I previously suggested?
