I just bought my Fuze yesterday (and this is the first real MP3 player I've used other than a cheapie)--I charged it up and loaded some songs, and they play...when I can get to that. My problem is, I seem to be able to scroll left and right but not up and down so I can select other menu items. Once in a while I can get it to move (like from music to video to settings), but not all the time. I saw this description in another post (which is pretty much what mine seems to be doing.) I have XP and I don't even know which version of WMP (I'm at work), but that part of it seemed to work fine. Is this a hardware issue where I should just take it back, or is this something a software upgrade could fix?

The spinning the scrollwheel left or right controls directional movement, either left or right (volume) or up or down (menus).
Pressing the scrollwheel controlls play/pause, forward/back and invoking the context menu.

No worries, we all have had a learning experience with the new control.
Coming from use of the Sansa e200 series players, these devices have a dedicated scroll ring with surrounding buttons. The Fuze's scroll wheel doubles as a 5-button control.
In a few situations, the upper button is disabled, functioning as a play/pause button, and the scroll wheel takes over for navigating the menus. (The e200 is a little different.)
After a few minutes, it gets pretty easy.
Enjoy your new Fuze!

Is it possible that instead of scrolling up/down, that the scroll wheel can navigate by pressing up and down? I watched this video and the reviewer clicks like so, but I was playing with my Fuze and it can only do scrolling up/down. Thank you!
