Default Make Fuze into a jumpdrive/thumdrive

I busted the screen on my 8GB Fuze recently and decided that it was not worth trying to fix (just bought a new one). I was wondering if there is a way to turn my broken Fuze into a jumpdrive/thumbdrive/mass storage device?

I would like to load it with a few movies and stuff so I can take it on trips and/or connect it to my dvd player to watch videos straight from the device. Let me know as it would suck to let 8GB of valuable space go to waste.

If it's set to MSC transfer mode, it already is a normal USB stick (as long as it still connects to a PC). If it's broken and in MTP mode, there's little you can do about it.

^ Yeah, that is the problem I am having... I think my player was set to MTP or Auto Detect (which defaults to MTP) and then the screen broke.

I think I may have found a solution posted by Sandisk in which you can force the player into MSC mode --> Website
1. Turn device OFF.
2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing).
3. Press and hold the left button ( |<< ) while connecting the device to the PC.

The only issue with the above is if the dvd player will recognize the drive when doing this. Worth a shot...
