I'm not using anything right now. That's the problem.

And that's why I've hesitated. It seems like everywhere I look these problems are mentioned. Still, it's not as though I'll be changing cards on the fly.

PM me if you want to help out and have FIRST HAND experience
Lol, have all of them 'first hand'. Will PM later.
Basically the Denon c700 with some 3rd party tips (e.g. Koss tips, Comply tips, Sony EX series) are the best value.

Add an 8gb sd card for ~$20 and that's a top-tier 16gb unit for just $80. At that price it's an overlay.

Of course, I paid $101 barely a month ago for the Fuze alone...

You think that's bad, here in Australia we have to pay AU$125 about US$80 just for the 4gb model

I have the clear case also. The design is horrible, but I really wanted something to protect my Fuze and the silicon ones make it difficult to take out of my pants.

The power button issue with the case definitely annoys me, but not to the point where I can't stand it. I haven't tried to take out the memory card with the case on, but I personally never take it out.

I was pretty surprised about the USB connector not being able to plug in all the way with the case on. Huge design flaw, but it's manageable. The cable still gets a connection. If you really wanted to, you could probably file the plastic down a little to make more room for the connector.

The case is extremely scratch prone and picks up fingerprints easily. It's also really thick, making the Fuze like 50% thicker.

If I were to rate the case, I'd give it a 4/10. The only reason I keep it is because it does what I wanted it to do: protect the Fuze.

Really??? Awww man, it just keeps getting better!


Actually, there's another solution that I've been looking into. It seems Invisible Shield has designed one just for the Fuze. I've been looking around Sansa's and ABI's forums and people seem to like it. You can get it with full body coverage or just screen coverage.

I think I might have to look into this. Link

I keep my fuze nude and just use common sense - no metal objects in the pocket with it, and it seems to be pretty much scratch free.

I don't blame you for hesitating. I've heard of some people actually sanding down parts of their clear cases for better access to their cards and sync ports. But, it doesn't really bother me, and it's very handy to just take the protected Fuze and put it in my pocket and go. I might try one of the InvisiShields in the future, but I'm fine with the Crystal Clear Case for now.

All the best.

Fly in my ointment

My Sansa Fuze played wonderfully for 3 weeks.

Well, it still does, but i refuses to charge and it is 'invisible' to my computers (tried on 3 different), so no loading music on the player (luckily I have a 4 Gb Micro SDHC card, and an adapter).

I bought a new - original - cable on eBay, but that didn't fix the problem (a few people on SanDisk's Sansa Community suggested it might be the cable).

So tomorrow I'm returning my Fuze for a replacement

Have you tried to reformat it?

I had a Sansa clip and I understand they use the same audio hardware so I can imagine how nice the Fuze is as well. The addition of expansion is nice but the proprietary interface cable really turns me off. Are there accessories that take advantage of the plug in any special way or is it just proprietary with no benefit?

I am having a problem with my new Fuze. When trying to transfer some MP3's, I get a message in windows telling me that the device is full. It then becomes unresponsive.

I only have 500MB on it. Any ideas why I am getting this message?

Edit: This is the message that I get

"Cannot copy xxxxx.mp3: The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected."

Did you upgrade to the new firmware yet? If not I would try that.
