Windows 7 shows Fuze battery permanently empty

Here is a funny one. When opening Fuze in MTP mode, Windows 7 opens it in this awesome Sansa-branded window which makes everything so much easier, I am just loving it. BUT - the battery information always is "Critically low - 0%", even when the battery is full. Now, why would that be and what to do about it?

If it's like most Windows bugs, it'll probably be fixed in Windows 7 SP4, sometime around 2012.

By me, it shows the correct battery life.

LOL... It would've been funny if it wasn't so sad.

You mean it's supposed to show empty?! Or do you mean your one shows the right charge?

I have that same problem, too.  Don't know what to do about it.    Oh well.... :smileyindifferent:

Tired of the Sansa Media Converter? Try Video4Fuze! It can create smaller videos than SMC, and is WAY more reliable!!!!

Always go by the info in the settings panel of your player. If that says 100% then your fine. Like was said its probably a windows bug.
