Ron,

  If Windows 7 is not detecting the Fuze as a USB drive, make sure the Fuze
itself is set to the correct mode. In "USB Mode" under "Settings" set the
device to "MSC" mode - in this mode the Fuze will appear to Windows as a USB
storage device. I had no issues with my Sansa having Windows 7 detect it and
set it up both ways (as a drive in MSC mode and as a multimedia device in MTP
mode).

  Can't help out on the 64-bit issue (I'm still 32bit here) , but I'll bet
there are others in the group that can.

Best Regards,

P.S. I also took the liberty of assigning a "Subject" to the post - you'll
get better response if people getting the postings know what they are about.
