Suggestion 1:

Update Windows:
A lot of times, Windows updates will fix small problems like this. If you haven't updated your Windows OS in a while, it may help.

1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs
3. Select Windows Update

You will be taken to the Windows Updates site and it should be a simple process of updating and restarting.

After that is complete make sure you have the proper software installed that came with your Fuze and then attempt to plug in the Fuze.

Suggestion 2:

If that doesn't work, try updating your USB drivers.

Navigate to HP's Support site and search for available drivers for download. An updated driver might be available for USB. Follow the installation instructions, restart your machine and attempt to plug in the Fuze.

Suggestion 3:

If the Fuze is still not being recognized, find a different USB device, such as a USB printer or USB hard drive, plug it in and observe to find out if the computer will recognize it. If it does, it may mean that there is some sort of software conflict and the Fuze is not recognized as a known device.

When you plug it in, listen for the Windows sound that occurs when a new USB device has been plugged in. If you don't here it, the issue may be related to the USB port itself. Try each USB port on the computer and listen for the "new device" sound.

If you don't hear the sound in one, but you hear the sound on another, try using that one and see what happens.

I'm aware of the mass audience of people who have had annoying experiences with the Fuze and how difficult it can be to make it work, and I hope this isn't one of those cases, but if it is, I would attempt to get your money back and use it on a different MP3 player. The iPod series is excellent and becoming cheaper. The cheapest being the Shuffle at around $50. I use the 3rd Gen Nano and it hasn't skipped a beat for 2 years.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

Why wont this sync with my itunes library?


Hi, Is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? In some ways, it is. Unfortunately, the Sansa Fuze and iTunes don't always play nice together. You'll have to get a few workarounds to make these two sync together.

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze and iTunes

The SanDisk Sansa Fuze is natively a Windows product. You should be able to sync it with Windows Media Player automatically. However, not everyone owns a Windows PC and even if they do, they might store more music in their iTunes library.

If this is the case for you, you might find it helpful to be able to sync your Sansa Fuze with your iTunes music library. Bear in mind that you won't be able to sync apps, games or any other iTunes products that are not formatted for use on a Sansa Fuze.
Using iTunes with the Sansa Fuze

So, is the SanDisk Sansa Fuze compatible with iTunes? If you download the right software, it is. Apple offers a free download that works with many other non-iPod MP3 players, Sansa Fuze included.

Unfortunately, this product only runs on a Mac operating system. However, if you own a Mac, this is great news because it means you can still use your Fuze without buying a Windows PC.

If you use a Windows PC and want to transfer your iTunes music to the Fuze, don't lose hope - there's a way to do that, too.
Syncing the Sansa Fuze with iTunes

If you're using a Mac, visit this link for Apple's free software download. It comes directly from Apple, so you can be assured that it's spyware-free.

Install the software on your Mac. You need Mac OS X 10.4 or higher as well as iTunes version 8 or higher.

Plug your Sansa Fuze into the Mac and wait for the software to open. You should see a listing of your iTunes music library pop open in a window. You're then given the option to sync as many songs as possible onto your Fuze.

The syncing process is similar to syncing an iPod. Don't unplug the device until it's finished.
Syncing the iTunes Library in Windows

You can sync your Sansa Fuze with iTunes using a script called the Automator, found here. Once downloaded, open the script under your "Downloads" folder on your "C:" drive and find a string of characters that looks like this: "/Users/richard/Music/*.mp3".

Replace the name "Richard" with your own username. Don't change anything else. Select "File," "Save" from the menu.

Select the Automator icon with the right click button on your mouse and choose "Open with," "Automator Runner." If working properly, this should automatically sync the music from iTunes with your Sansa Fuze.

If that doesn't work, go into your iTunes library and highlight any DRM-protected tracks that you purchased from iTunes. Right-click and select "Make MP3 Version." These should now be compatible with the Automator.

This sounds like more or less of a "hack" than a solution, but this might be the only way to sync music from iTunes to your Fuze using Windows. If all else fails, make MP3 versions of the songs as shown above, then navigate to your iTunes folder where those files are stored. Then drag and drop these into Windows Media Player, where they should sync right onto your Fuze.



Hope that helps..

My computer does not recognize Sansa Fuze


Hi there,

On your computer, Go to Windows Task Manager or Control Panel. Find the Device Manager. There should be a list called Plug-N-Play Devices.

Find the one that should have the driver details of your SanDisk Sansa Fuze Digital Media Player.
Right click on it and select Uninstall.

Now plug in your MP3 Player again to the computer. This time your computer should detect that your MP3 player is connected and will install the drivers for the MP3 player again.

Hope I was of assistance to you,

Cheers :)

Sansa Fuze player will not connect to the computer


Hello,

The Sansa Fuze information support is on next site:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3249/

Sansa Fuze can connect in either MTP or MSC mode.
MTP is Media Transfer Protocol when a software program like Windows
Media Player 10 or higher is installed.
MSC is Mass Storage Class when the player is detected as an external flash drive in "My Computer".

The connection mode can be set to one of the following USB modes:
auto detect:
the player will connect in MTP or MSC mode. It depends on the drivers that are installed for the USB ports for the operating system and extra media software, if the data on the player can be detected. In auto detect
mode, MTP mode detection is only possible when having Windows Media Player 10 or higher installed.
mtp:
detection on operating system Windows XP SP2 or higher, in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
msc:
detection on operating system Windows in the explorer in "My Computer" and on MAC operating system.

Look in the manual on page 35 = page 38 in the pdf file, how to switch the USB mode under System Settings in the player:

I don't know how to download music on my sansa fuze (4GB)


On your Sansa Fuze, go to the "Settings" menu, then go to "System Settings", then go to "USB Mode", then select "MSC".

Now, connect it to your computer, then double-click "My Computer" on your computer's desktop to run Windows Explorer. You should see your Sansa Fuze show up as "SANSA FUZE". Double click on "SANSA FUZE", and you should see a folder called "MUSIC". Copy your music into that folder. When done, unplug your Fuze and your music will be on it.

Sansa Fuze 8GB hard drive shows up as unknown device.


Have you tried changing the USB Mode in your MP3 Player?
On your sansa, go to "Settings" then System Settings" then "USB Mode," then change it to MSC, if that does not work, try the other modes, just in case.
Hope this helps!

Someone gave me there Sansa Fuze mp3player but they didn't have the instruction booklet. I'm trying to find out how I download things to the mp3 player


You need a USB cable which you need to connect to your computer. This cable also serves as a charger. You will probably need to load(rip) the music from a CD to your computer into a program called Windows Media Player. Then you will use this program (Windows Media Player) to "sync" your MP3 player to the computer from which you can download music to your MP3 player. denparis39@centurytel.net

There Really is not much Change in the Players. Some people just like to have a NEW Model other than Last Years Model. The Options and Functions are Basically the Same.

The fuze only operates in Windows XP SP2 and Vista. If you have either of these operating systems, you may need to update your Windows Media Player or install Windows Hotfixes. Check the Sansa website for more info.
