Question about Creative Labs Zen Digital Media Player

Can't transfer music

Alright, so, I just got a new ZEN yesterday. Using Frostwire, I managed to upload a bunch of songs with no problem. I decided to upload more today, and when I went to send an mp3 file over, I got the error message : "An unknown error has occurred (0x80004005). The operation was not completed."

This has happened with every file I tried to send over today. But not yesterday. Why is this, and how can I fix it?

Oh, and memory space is not an issue.

    ive been downloading the same podcasts on the same sites (weekly podcasts) to my creative mp3 for months now. for some reason today i downloaded one that ive downladed dozens of times before and i got: unknown error has occured (0x80004005) message. ALSO IT WIPED OUT MY ENTIRE LIBRARY ON MY MP3 PLAYER! i had several songs and podcasts downladed on it and it erased them ALL!! i unistalled the creative software and reinstalled it. that didnt work. i tried deleting all the contents of the folder i download to and then downloaded something that i already had transferred and listened to before and it didnt work either. then i tried turning off windows firewall and again....didnt work.

    can someone help?

Explanation -
Error code 0x80004005
This problem may occur if a file that the Windows Product Activation (WPA) requires is damaged or missing. This behavior occurs if one or both of the following conditions are true:

A third-party backup utility or an antivirus program interferes with the installation of Windows XP.

A file that WPA requires is manually modified.

Solution -
First, disable your Windows firewall just to be sure (make sure you have another firewall or antivirus program before doing this. Delete all songs and start over. Frostwire has two big problems - it is virus-prone, and
embedded text leads to the corruption of many mp3 players. Make sure you delete all text from the Comments section of the ID3 tag of any Frostwire song before loading it onto your mp3 player. To do this:
1. Open Windows Media Player
2. Click Library – make sure the songs that you have just added are visible. If they are not visible, give Windows Media Player two minutes to update the library. If they still don’t appear, move the mouse cursor over to the Library tab, and click the little white arrow that appears under the word "Library" – this will being down a drop-down menu; select "Add to Library"; click the "Add" button and add the Frostwirewire Downloads folder; click OK; click OK again – Windows Media Player will now attempt to add your Frostwire downloads to the Windows Media Player library
3. Find the song that you want to edit
4. Right-click the song, and select "Advanced Tag Editor"
5. click on the Comments tab – make sure it is blank
Now you can safely load the song from Frostwire into your device (mp3 player).

Want to transfer music from iPod to ZMAX iphone is it possible


Are you talking about ZTE ZMAX smartphone? If so, your question equals to "how to transfer iPod music to android phone", right?

Generally speaking, transferring music from iPod to android is a bit tricky, but not impossible. Here are two methods that may help you to easily and quickly transfer music cross platforms.

The first method recommended in this post generally involves syncing your iPod music tracks with your iTunes Music Library on your desktop PC and uploading the music files to your Google Music account. To accomplish this, you will need the Google Music Manager software. Now that your songs are uploaded to Google, you can listen to your songs via the Play Music website on your supported Web browser or via the Play Music app on your Android device.

I have a Sansa View i beleive and..............


Plug the view into the computer via usb and find where your music files from frostwire are downloaded to (most likely your Shared folder) and copy or drag the destined files to your Views Music folder and then unplug when your view is done transferring and all the songs you placed in the folder should show up.

Confused


Before using Frostwire, understand that it is a very virus-prone site - make sure you have anti-virus software on your computer before trying to use. You can't transfer songs directly to your mp3 player through Frostwire, but you can download the songs into the "My Music" folder of your computer - you will have to go into the Frostwire Properties toolbox, and change your download folder from "Frostwire Downloads" to "My Music" in order to make this happen. Once the songs are downloaded onto your computer, open up Windows Media Player - use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from your "My Music" folder to your Zen. (alternatively, you can change your Library --> Add to Library folders in Windows Media Player to include the "Frostwire Downloads" folder). Good luck - I could probably write an entire page elaborating on each sentence that I have given you here - but Fixya has word limits. :-) Let me know if you need extra help.

Transfering music


Download LimeWire or FrostWire (i prefer frost.) and download all the songs you want. Its very simple to use, so dont need to go into detail for that. Than (assuming you have a windows computer) open up 'Windows Media Player' and on the top tabs click 'Sync'.
Dont minimize, but make the FrostWire window small, but where you have all your downloaded music click/drag-able. highlight all songs/media pieces and drag them to the sync playlist on the right side of Windows Media Player. Click Start Sync and wait a bit.
That should solve your problem mredmarin. Let me know if it did!
Have a good day :)
