Fuze V2 + Rockbox + USB
when my fuze is switched off and i connect it to pc to transfer tunes, its in stock player usb connected mode, not rb. Therefore it takes ages to do its refresh database thing and then i have to initialize the media library in rb also aftwerwards Zzzzz...

With clip zip i cant recall it doing this, it went into rb usb connected mode and therefore i only had to do the initialise database thing after.

What am i missing here?

Running latest version of rb for the fuze whatever that is.

You can just skip the refresh database thing in the stock firmware by holding the power switch till it turns off,then turn it on again and boot up into Rockbox. When I had mine,I always searched stuff by files so database refresh was always never needed. But the USB thing never worked well with the Fuze+Rockbox,so it isn't included.As for the Clip+,it has more success with RB USB connection than the Fuze.

USB support has been included on all AMSv2 models for some months now. You need the current bootloader to boot to Rockbox on connection. The older bootloader goes to the OF first.

IIRC USB should still work with the the current build and release but you need to be powered up on connection. Once you update the bootloader it boots to Rockbox powered on or not.

When you say 'current bootloader' what do you mean exactly? I mean i have the latest rb for fuze installed (just did it like a month ago), is the bootloader a single specific file or summin available from the rb website?

Run the automated installer again. Under the Installation tab pick Install the bootloader. You usually only need to do that once but the bootloader was updated to boot to Rockbox instead of the OF after USB support was enabled.
