Make sure you get a MICRO SD card.

Switch it to MSC mode. Update the firmware. Read the threads on playlists. Get better earphones. Don't expect to use iTunes.

All of the above are pretty minor if you ask me. In fact I only had to do the first two of the five.

Biggest problem: all videos and pictures have to be run through Sansa Media Converter to get them onto the Fuze. It is slow, finicky, and mutter...mutter. Having said all that it works just fine for me.

Example...I was trying to copy a video from one of my digital cameras to the Fuze, Not working. Looked for some different codecs as recommended. Still not working. Unplugged a flash drive from another USB port. Worked fine. Finicky???

There is a audio/video out of sync problem also. Some say the use of the Rhapsody software fixes that, but conversion is reported to be very slow (using that software).

Yes, that's what he meant. Just use it as a music player that sounds great and you'll be very happy
