The connection is automatic. However, you can break the connection by telling the operating system to do so, just as you normally do before detaching the device. On Windows you tell it to stop external device. That will break the connection but continue charging.

    The main reason to ask this question was that OS shuld not open the drive as I want to charge it in my office where it is not allowed. even if it gets open for a sec, it will get detected in the detection software.

    Please help

    Okay, that's a little harder. As I mentioned originally, the connection is automatic and I don't know how to prevent it. The only thing I can think of is to plug the Fuze into something other than a computer, like a wall adapter.

    Can you get enough people in the office to complain about not being able to charge cell phones via USB? :-)

I cant open


Push the power switch up as far as it will go and see if the blue ring on the front of the player lights up.


The Fuze's power button is not a traditional button but a slider, so if you did not push the slider up all the way, this may be the only reason it was not powering on.


Reset the Fuze by pushing up on the power switch and holding it in the up position for 10 seconds.


Try to power on the Fuze again after it has fully rebooted.


Connect the Fuze's USB cord from the Fuze to a USB port on your computer.


You should see a yellow charging light illuminate and the battery symbol blinking on the Fuze's main display.


Once the battery stops flashing, the Fuze is fully charged and you can try to power it on again.


hope this helps

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:

My sansa will not turn on


Make sure player is fully charged. Connect the player to the PC. Make sure the computer detects the player.
NOTE: you may need to switch the player to MSC mode, then connect it to the PC.
Leave the player connected for approximately 2 hours to charge. Disconnect the player from the PC. Verify if you can turn on the player. Reset the player if necessary. Reset the player. To reset -- Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. Release the Power switch. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.

I don't know how to get music onto my Sansa Fuze.


Hello,

There's a Sandisk support site for the Sansa Fuze, see:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3249/

Sansa Fuze user manual in pdf format:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/FUZE/fuze_userguide_en.pdf

Important
There are 2 ways the Fuze can be connected to a computer to transfer
music: MTP mode or MSC mode, read page 16 (=13) of the manual.
The player can be set to automatic detection of the connection mode
or can be set to either one of the available connections.

MTP mode is used for transfers using software like Sansa Media Manager or Windows Media Player 11.

MSC mode is used for transfers using the "drag and drop" method in the computer's explorer.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

Hi.

The unit is new, and does not connect to a computer. Test it using a different computer, if it still does not connect, then call Best Buy and have it replaced.
