    well I tried installing Drivers for my sansa Fuze MP3 Player and I read you need to install a program Sansa Updater I do that I plug my MP3 Player into the USB it starts charging but it is not recognized by the Program but it is recognized by windows and I have NOT installed ANY Drivers for it also I am using a Latitude C600 running Windows XP with a PCMCIA card for the USB because the USB on the laptop is broken. and I have proper Drivers for the PCMCIA Card

    If I remember correctly, the Sansa Fuze has two USB modes. MSC or MTP.
    Have you tried them both?

    Yeah screw MTP mode. MSC FTW... unless you've got to deal with DRM'd stuff.

    Take a moment to explain, please.
    I'm not sure what these designations mean or what their differences are.

    MSC is the "standard USB storage" mode where the MP3 player acts like a flash drive and you don't need to deal with any BS software to use it, but transferring DRM'd songs and such doesn't really work. MTP mode on the other hand, makes the MP3 player act like a special device, it shows up differently as a class of devices, sort of... and programs such as Windows Media Player get additional options for communicating with it, such as storing and license information for DRM'd music.

    However MTP mode locks off some options and doesn't work across the board. I use my Mp3 player on a variety of OSes and systems, so I have it in MSC mode so I can just transfer the damn files back and forth.
