Rockbox problem with USB disconnect?
I read in a post somewhere that Rockbox has a problem if the "disconnect" wasn't clicked before a Fuze is disconnected. I'd appreciate knowing if this is true, and what the problem (if any) is. (I've already googled and can't find anything..)

My experience in disconnecting Rockboxed players, including the Fuze, has been the same as disconnecting a non Rockboxed player. If you disconnect during an active file transfer, you risk file corruption. As long as there isn't a transfer in progress there shouldn't be a problem.

If it's a concern, follow whatever procedure is appropriate for safe removal\dismounting is appropriate for your OS. You shouldn't have any disconnection related problems then.

Many moons ago I would do a safe disconnect but soon after I started just disconnecting all my players without any special procedure and I’ve never had a problem with or without rockbox (I only connect in MSC mode). We have 7 rockboxed players in our household but 2 are soon being decommissioned for parts even though they still work fine, they’re only 1GB v1 players or I might just use them for risky water activities.
