CHAPTER 1: Safe Use Guidelines
This chapter provides important device usage suggestions, general
care instructions, and hearing guidelines for safe enjoyment of your
Sansa® Fuze™+ MP3 player.
Chapter 1: SAFE USE GUIDELINES
1.1. Usage Instructions
PLEASE READ THESE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING YOUR
SANSA MP3 PLAYER!
1. Read this entire manual to ensure proper usage.
2. Keep this User Manual for future reference.
3. Do not use headphones/earphones while driving, cycling, or operating any motorized
vehicle. This may create a traffic hazard and may be illegal in some areas. It can also be
dangerous to play your music with headphones/earphones at high volume while walking,
or engaged in other activities. You should exercise extreme caution and discontinue use
in potentially hazardous situations.
4. Avoid using headphones/earphones at high volume. Hearing experts advise
against continuous loud and extended music play. Keep the volume at a
moderate level, so that you are better able to hear outside sound and to be
considerate of the people around you.
5. Keep your player away from sinks, drinks, bathtubs, showers, rain, and other sources of
moisture. Moisture can cause electric shocks with any electronic device.
6. Follow these tips to keep your player working well for a long time:
•
•
•
Clean your player with a soft lint-free cloth.
•
Do not disassemble, crush, short-circuit or incinerate the battery as it may cause
fire, injury, burns or other hazards.
Do not allow young children to use your player unsupervised.
Never force any connector into the ports of your player or your computer. Make
sure your connectors are the identical shape and size before you connect.
Used Device Disposal Instructions
Do not dispose of this device with unsorted waste. Improper disposal may be harmful to the
environment and human health. Please refer to your local waste authority for information
on the return and collection systems in your area for used electronics goods.

For Home and Personal Use Only!
This product is intended to be used for recording and playback for your home and personal
enjoyment. Copying or commercial use of copyrighted material without permission of the
copyright owner may be prohibited by law. Use of your MP3 player, in compliance with all
copyright and applicable intellectual property laws, remains the responsibility of the user of
the product.
1.2. Important Hearing Safety Information
PLEASE READ THESE HEARING SAFETY GUIDELINES BEFORE USING
YOUR SANSA PLAYER!
Congratulations on the purchase of your Sansa Fuze+ MP3 player!
Your MP3 player is equipped with a variety of features. To help you maximize your
listening pleasure, SanDisk would like to advise you that it is important to use
your headphones with your MP3 player at a safe hearing level.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Exposure or repeated exposure for an extended period of time to music and other
sounds that are too loud can cause damage to your hearing resulting in temporary or
even permanent “noise induced hearing loss”. [According to the European
Commission / Studies show that] safe use depends on exposure time and volume
levels. At 80 dB(A), exposure should be limited to 40 hours/week. At 89 dB(A)
exposure should not exceed 5 hours/week.
The default setting of the maximum volume of your MP3 player is set at 80 dB(A),
based on use of the original headphones that come with this product. If the original
set of headphones is replaced with another type, this may cause higher unsafe sound
levels.
For certain uses of this MP3 player, such as with certain replacement headphones
and for use in relation with other devices, it is possible to override the standard
device setting of 80 db(A). SanDisk strongly advises you to always make sure that
the actual volume is at a safe level.
Symptoms of hearing loss increase gradually with prolonged exposure at high levels
of loudness.
Initially, you may not even be aware of the loss unless detected with a hearing test.
Your hearing may adapt to higher volumes of sound. In order to prevent any harmful
impact to your hearing, you must control the sound from your headphones and set
the Sansa MP3 player’s volume to a low setting where you can hear it clearly and
comfortably.
Listen to your Sansa MP3 player at such a level that you can still hear conversation
and other people in your environment without shouting when you attempt to
converse.
It can also be dangerous to play your music with headphones/earphones at high
volume while walking or engaged in other activities. You should exercise extreme
caution and discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
Do not use headphones or earphones while driving, cycling, or operating any
motorized vehicle. This may create a traffic hazard and may be illegal some areas.
6
Hearing levels
To help you understand what may be considered a safe hearing level, the following
examples are included for your reference.
Examples of Typical Approximate Sound Level:
Sound Level (dB)
Refrigerator humming
40
Normal conversation
60
City traffic
80
Motorcycles and lawnmowers
Rock concerts
90 #
110-120 #
* A decibel (dB) is a unit of relative measurement of the strength of sound wave. In
decibels (dB), a measured signal level doubles with every additional 3 dB.
# These sound decibel levels are considered harmful with extended exposure.
Information courtesy of the National Institute of Deafness & Other Communication Disorders
(NIDCD) http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/health/hearing/noise.asp.
For your safety!
Your hearing may adapt to higher volumes of sound. In order to prevent any harmful impact
to your hearing, you must control the sound emanating from your headphones and set the
MP3 player volume to a low setting where you can hear it clearly and comfortably.
Studies, including one from NIDCD indicate that sounds of less than 80 decibels, even after
long exposure, are unlikely to cause a hearing loss. Listen to your MP3 player at such a level
that you can still hear conversation and other people in your environment without shouting
when you attempt to converse.
It can also be dangerous to play your music with headphones/earphones at high volume
while walking or engaged in other activities. You should exercise extreme caution and
discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.
Do not use headphones/earphones while driving, cycling, or operating any motorized
vehicle. This may create a traffic hazard and may be illegal in some areas.

CHAPTER 3: Basic Usage
This chapter provides you the basic usage instructions for your
Sansa® Fuze™+ MP3 player.
Chapter 3: Basic Usage
Quick Tips:
1. Ensure your player is fully charged before operating for the first time.
2. Updating the player’s firmware is highly recommended. The Sansa Updater will
inform you if the firmware is in need of updating via auto-detention of the player,
but you can also check manually. Visit www.sandisk.com/smc to download the Sansa
Updater.
This chapter provides more information on charging the device, updating the firmware,
and much, much more!
3.1. Charging the Device/Connecting to the Computer
The Sansa Fuze+ MP3 player connects to a computer via an included micro-USB cable,
which is used both for charging the device and also for transferring data back and forth,
such as for loading music, videos, or photo files.
Your player comes with an internal rechargeable battery. The battery is not replaceable.
Before using the player for the very first time, fully charge the battery. To charge the
battery, you need to connect the device to a computer using the included USB cable.
3.1.1. Connecting to a Computer
1. Connect the smaller end of the micro-USB cable to the Sansa Fuze+ MP3 player.
2. Connect the larger end of the micro-USB cable into an available USB port on the
computer (usually found on the side or back of the computer).
3. The computer must be turned on for the USB port to be able to charge the battery.
When connected, the player will show the word “connected” and will display a USB icon.
In addition, the battery icon charging indicator will appear and the battery level indicator
will blink while charging. Note that you will not be able to play music, watch videos, or
view photos while the player is connected to the computer.
4. On a computer running Windows®, your player will appear under My Computer as a
Portable Media Player
5. To stop recharging, simply disconnect the USB cable.
13
If you have a PC running Windows®, and the player is not recognized by your computer,
make sure you have Windows Media™ Player version 10 or higher installed. You can also
change the USB Mode to MSC (“Mass Storage Class”) mode by going to “Settings”,
selecting “USB Mode”, and then selecting “MSC”. See Settings in Chapter 8 for more details.
For a Mac® operating system computer, ensure that USB Mode is set to Auto Detect or
MSC mode.
Auto Detect or MTP (“Media Transfer Protocol”) mode
MSC (“Mass Storage Class”) mode
Battery Level Indicator
The battery level indicator is located at the top-left corner of the screen.
Battery Full
Battery Low
14
You can charge your player using the USB port on your
computer using the included micro-USB cable. You can
also use any micro-USB charger rated to 5V DC output (not
included). When connected properly to the computer for
charging or transferring data, an icon which looks like USB
cable will appear on the screen of the device, with the word
“Connected”. If this icon does not appear in 3-5 seconds,
then the USB connection has not been made successfully.
Quick Tips:
1. If the device does not charge, ensure that your cable is fully inserted firmly into
both the device port and the USB port.
2. Some low-power USB ports may not provide enough power to charge the Sansa
Fuze+ MP3 player. If you are still having problems, use a different USB port.
3. The battery can also be charged using an AC-to-DC 5 Volt (or lower rated)
adapter (not included) or a 5 Volt car adapter (not included), which are available
at most consumer electronics stores. When charging using an AC-to-DC adaptor,
it will be possible to listen to the device while charging, unlike charging while
connected to the computer.
3.1.2. Removing the player from your computer
Windows® – Simply disconnect the micro-USB cable from the player after you have
finished charging, transferring, firmware upgrading, or synchronizing files.
Mac® – Eject the “removable disk” appearing on your screen by dragging the icon to the
Trash, and then disconnect the micro-USB cable.
Caution!
Do not disconnect the player while it’s transferring data. Disconnecting the player from the
computer while data are being transferred may cause a loss of data or possible damage to
the player.
15
3.2. Power Switch
The power switch is used to turn the player on or off as well as resetting it.
Power On/Power Off
Press and hold the Power button on the top of the player for approximately 2
seconds to power it on or turn it off.
Reset
To reset your player, press and hold the Power button for approximately 20
seconds. You should not have to reset the player except in the rare occurrence
when the player does not respond.
3.3. Navigation Overview
The Sansa Fuze+ MP3 player utilizes a unique graphical user interface which works in
conjunction with the capacitive touch pad interface. Instead of using a traditional “home”
screen, the device’s interface is organized in a way that can be thought of as either a film
strip or as a digital book shelf, with the various features organized in a horizontal manner as
shown below:
Each of the 8 basic features always appears in the order as shown:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Music
Videos
Photos
Radio
Podcasts (also contains audiobooks)
Voice recording
Card (for directly accessing what’s on a card or playing a slotRadio card)
Settings
16
The user interface is navigated by swiping left-to-right to select
the feature of interest, or by swiping top-to-bottom within
features. The interface can also be navigated for the most part
by simply tapping on the end points of the markings on the
device, much like ends of a compass (East, West, North,
South). For example, tapping on the right side of the touch pad
will advance the screen from Music Æ Videos Æ Photos, and so
forth. Pressing and holding the touch pad compass points is
equivalent to multiple taps. Upon reaching the “ends of the
bookcase” (Music on the left, Settings on the right), the device
will show a bounce back, indicating that it isn’t possible to go
any further (there is no looping around). Thus we speak of the
device as having a “home level” instead of a home button, per
se, which consists of this level of 8 features.
At any time, the number of sub-menus can be determined by
counting the number of dots that appear on the bottom of the
screen. These can be thought of as a quick reference to the
number of “pages in the book” for that particular section of the
digital library. For example, on the main menu you can see that
there are 8 dots on the bottom of the screen, corresponding to
the 8 main features as detailed above, with the current mode
highlighted. Swiping or tapping the touch pad to navigate from
right to left will advance the currently highlighted dot, indicating
where you are at any time.
Similarly, within all of the 8 functions except for “Settings”, you
will find a view guide of dots at the bottom of the screen.
From the home level, you can quickly access any content showing on the screen by pressing
. Alternatively, to select files or functions within any of these 8
the play button
categories, tap or press the select option (center of touchpad) and the device will display
the sub-menus associated with that function.
Quick Tips:
1. When on the home level menu, swiping vertically will give a preview of the content
contained in that area. For example, the Music section will display the album art for
the 10 most recent songs played. Videos, photos, and podcasts will also display
the thumbnails for the 10 most recently played files in those categories.
2. No matter where you are in the user interface, pressing and holding the back
button
on the upper left corner of the touchpad area will return the device to the
home level.

3.4. Eight Core Functions Overview
Sansa Fuze+ MP3 player’s unique graphical user interface has a dedicated home menu for

CHAPTER 4: Transferring Media
This chapter shows you how to transfer music files, photos, and
videos from your computer to your Sansa® Fuze™+ player.
Chapter 4: Loading Content
Your Sansa Fuze+ player comes with an open file platform, enabling you to load it how you
like best. Whether it’s ripping music from your CDs collection, purchasing MP3 songs
online, or downloading DRM-free tracks from iTunes®, it’s Your Media, Your Way!™ In
general, there are three ways to load content: transfer your own files using a computer;
obtain music files from one of the supported media subscription services (Rhapsody®,
eMusic®, or Napster®, all sold separately), or side-load content to the Sansa Fuze+ player
using a microSD/microSDHC memory card or slotRadio™ card (both sold separately).
4.1. Loading Audio Files (Music, Podcasts, Audiobooks)
You can transfer music, playlists, podcasts, or audiobooks from your computer to the player
using the drag-and-drop method or using music management software such as Windows®
Media Player. Specific audiobook files from Audible.com require Audible Manager to transfer
to your player.
As explained in Chapter 3, there are two primary modes for connecting your Sansa Fuze+
player to your computer for file transfers: MSC (“Mass Storage Class”) mode, and MTP
mode (“Media Transfer Protocol”). MSC is also known as “drag and drop”, because the
device will appear as a Removable Disk to the computer. Windows® supports both MSC
and MTP modes. On a Mac® OS system, MSC is the only transfer mode available. Some
Linux systems support MTP mode in addition to MSC mode.
25
4.1.1. MSC Mode: Drag and Drop
1. Connect your player to your Windows® PC.
2. Open the My Computer icon on your desktop by double-clicking on it.
3. Double-click on the Sansa player icon which will appear there.
4. Double-click Internal Memory or Media (may vary by Windows® version).
5.
Drag and drop music files from your computer to the Sansa player’s MUSIC folder.
You can also drag and drop files to a microSD card inside your player by going to My
Computer > Sansa Fuze+ > External uSD Card. You can only drag and drop files to the
card if you have write permissions for the card.
4.1.2. Mac®: MSC Mode: Drag and Drop
1. Connect your Sansa player to your MAC computer.
2. Double-click on the removable disk named SANSA FUZE+ that appears on your
desktop.
3. Double-click on the Music folder.
4. Drag and drop music files from your computer to the player’s Music folder.
You can also drag and drop files to a microSD card inside your player by double-clicking the
second removable disk that appears when you connect your player.
On a Mac® OS computer, remember to eject the removable disk before disconnecting your player to avoid any data corruption or possible damage to your player.
Quick Tips:
On either a Windows® or Mac OS® computer, the second removable disk folder, which
only appears when a microSD card is loaded inside your player, will display with the
card’s name, just as if you connected it via a card reader. Please be aware that you can
only drag and drop files to the card if you have write permissions for the card.
26
4.1.3. Windows® MTP Mode: Windows Media Player™
MTP or “Media Transfer Protocol” mode is the default setting in your Sansa Fuze+ player if
you live in North America (it is MSC mode for other geographies). MTP mode enables
synchronizing your player with Windows Media Player™, which comes standard as a part of
the Windows® operating system.
However, before you can create a playlist and transfer (or synchronize) it to your player,
you need to show Windows Media Player™ where your songs are located.

photos and videos as appropriate, and then transfer these to your player with ease. SMC
does essentially two functions: (1) it enables transcoding of file formats which are not
native to the device; and (2) it modifies files as necessary for an optimal viewing experience
on the Sansa Fuze+ MP3 player’s screen (e.g., for video files SMC can modify aspect ratio,
frame rate, bit rate, or resolution; for photos SMC can perform rotating and resizing).
Sansa Media Converter can be used for transferring video or photo files to either your player
or a microSD card. To download the Sansa Media Converter software or to obtain more
information about its capabilities, please see www.sandisk.com/smc.
Do not select both videos and photos to convert/transfer at the same time. Select

audio/music file formats, including MP3, WMA, secure WMA, FLAC, AAC/M4A (DRM-free
iTunes® songs), WAV, OGG-Vorbis, and Audiobooks formats.
Your player is equipped to read the associated digital information which comes with most
audio files (called “ID3 tag” metadata) to automatically associate album art, artist, album,
and genre. This enables your Sansa Fuze+ player to sort your music automatically so you
can enjoy it with ease. Under the “Music” category on your device, this includes featuring
your music sorted by:
•
Artist – presented in alphabetical order (note: ignores any “the” in front of an
artist’s name)
•
Album
•
Song
•
Genre
•
Playlist – either downloaded from your computer or generated on the device
It is also possible to listen to your music via “recently played” (Top-10 most recently played
songs); “Shuffle” mode, which plays all of the songs in your device in random order;
individually by song; or via playlists that you can either create on your computer, or which
you can dynamically create on the fly in a “Music Go List”.

premium content, pre-loaded playlists of music, making it easy to enjoy your content with no
downloads, no playlist generation, no subscriptions, and no hassle. These cards provide
37
commercial free music from the leading music labels, and enable skipping of songs you do
not care to hear. They are an ideal solution for those people seeking quality music at
