Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

I bought a Creative Zen Xtra 60GB on eBay. It never seemed to work quite right. There was a gliche in the file system and sometimes it would not recognize the playlists already installed. Downloaded the new software because my purchase DID NOT come with software or a cable. Got the software installed and the Zen Xtra worked long enough for me to get ALL of my selections installed on the drive. Then when I tried to play from the drive, it started rebooting constantly. The only way to stop it is to pull the battery. However, it starts again once I try to pull the playlists and play a song or an album. Any thoughts?

    Now this same Zen Xtra has a display that won't display, hence I can't see that it's charged or choose song selections. What do I do?

60GB Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra stuck in startup loop


mine did the same until i got a new power supply. it requires a 5volt dc pos tip charger with 20 watts. a universal 3-7.5v 2amp charger from radioshack does the trick. make sure the tip is yellow for the charger.

Ever since vista dropped alot of support files for simple thing like Creative's older model Mp3 Players, try going to creatives website, and look in the support section for a driver update for VIsta.

problems is reformat hard drive.

Won't go past loading screen


I've seen this problem quite a few times on the Creative Labs forum. I had a similar problem with my Zen Jukebox Xtra 60gb. My solution was to replace the hard drive and reload the firmware. Bingo! It works like new. If you feel adventurous do as I did. But if it's still under warranty then let Creative Labs fix it. Oh, by the way I got my hard drive for my Zen Xtra on eBay for $30.00. Also eBayers sell various troubled MP3 players for parts. A lot cheaper than if I had sent it in for repair.
