    I think its a 4 gb. well anyways.. it wont turn back on.. I was downloading music and i plugged it into the usb plug to transfer the music.. I didnt even get to do that cause it was already refreshed and most of the music was transfered. But now it wont turn back on at all and my computer wont recognize the usb plug anymore.. Did I do something wrong here? I have only black screen and I was just listening to it a few minutes ago. IDK what to do here !!!!

    I just had the same problem last night. I was downloading and then confirmed the music downloaded and everything was fine and so I turned it off. When I tried to turn it back on it was dead and the computer does not recognize it now. Totally dead. There is also no reset button as in my previous older style.

Same exact problem.....What got it working again was this. Plug the usb cord into computer first. Then while holding the the Fuze's power button in the ON position, plug the cable into the bottom of the Fuze. This was the only thing that worked for me.

I read the post about holding the power button on; that didn't work for me, so I tried holding different buttons down and plugging in the cable. What worked for me was holding the thumbwheel down at the bottom, and then plugging the cable in. Very strange... but hope this helps somebody else.

Don't know how to adjust volume on sansa fuze player 8gb and how to turn off completely


While playing, you can adjust the volume by "turning" the command wheel. Turn it clockwise to increase, counterclockwise to decrease.

To turn it off, slide the power switch (the same switch you use to turn it on) up (toward the display) and hold it for two seconds.

I cant find a cord to hook my SanDisk Sansa 8GB to car


The Sansa isn't supposed to connect to a CD player. You need to use a computer to rip tracks from the CD, then transfer them from the computer to the Sansa.

The Sansa Fuze has superior audio quality. It also accepts microSDHC cards, which means you can expand the capacity to 20GB. The Sansa Fuze supports more audio formats than the Craze.

The Sanza Fuze is rated for up to 24 hours of playback time, although people state they tend to get between 19 and 21.

First battery charge after purchase


I would charge the Fuze fully before first use, actually this is what is recommended. You'll know when it is finished, as you will get a full green battery icon displaying.
The players are not fully charged when first shipped.

Music skipping


hmm. The hard drive itself could be messed up. The hard drive can easily be formatted by right clicking and formatting it. Though I am taking the easy way out here to fix the problem.
