Wow, after 6 hours of trial and error, the answer is far easier than I thought, everyone else had the right answer, but their descriptions lacked specific details... Anywho, turn on your Sansa Fuze, go to "settings", "system settings", "USB mode", and select "MSC". now plug it into the computer, it should now easily sync up to WMP or whatever you want to use. ^_^

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 :)

When i turn my sansa fuze on it says "not enough space for music db please free 90mb"and turns back off..how am i able to get it to wrk again?


Hello,

When the player is rearranging playlists of the music database, it is possible that there's not enough memory left in the player to finish the task.
Connect the player with your computer to delete some files, at least 90 MB, off the Fuze to make it work again.
When not having a backup of the songs, save them onto the computer first.

My computer can't recognize my sansa fuze player... plz help me..


The Fuzeplayer must NOT be connected to the computer before you install the software.
If this has happpened, you will need to remove the Fuse driver in Device Manager. (Inst for XP)
Go to My Computer->Right click and select Properties. In properties, select hardware and Device Manager.
With Device Manager open, plug in the Sansa Fuse player. Find the new driver that popped in.
(You can do and undo this several times until you are certain you have the right one.)
Right click the fuze driver and select 'Remove'.
Close all windows you opened.
Unplug the fuze player and do not connect it until the driver is reinstalled with the driver disk. When the software asks, plug it back in.
That should solve it.
Unsure? ask a knowledgable friend to help.

How I can put new music into my Sandisk Sansa Fuse 2 G


thats easy. you plug the device into the computer and open itunes, windows media, ect. and look in the side bar for you device. it should say something along the lines of Sansa fuze 2gb.  (windows media) go to the sync tab and select library there should be a side bar labeled the devices name on the right side. drag music from the library by clicking and holding the selected items and moving it into the sidebar. when you are done with selecting  music simply click the sync  button at the bottom of the sync sidebar.  (itunes) open a new itunes window and drag items from your library to you device and click sync.

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.

Go into device manager under Start --> Control Panel --> system --> Hardware --> Device Manager --> right click device and follow any troubleshooting that Microsoft reccomends

If that fails to resolve, try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
