Creative Zen 4 gig doesn't start when I click on its icon
When I turn on my computer it has stopped opening the Creative Zen 'home' page when I click on the icon. When the Dell Inspiron 5100 I'm using detects that the player is attached and the icon also appears in the bottom right of my window, a screen called 'Auto Execute' comes up. It asks if I would always like Windows to perform the same function - but there is a blank where it should show the function. So you either say OK or Annuler. (it's in French you see). Either way the egg timer ticks for 2 seconds then the computer ignores my request and puts its feet up for a cup of tea. Now what should I do? Re load the CD and loose the 3 GB of music I have there? I'd hate to do that.

Do Windows Update. It will download and install the service packs that you need as well as the latest driver for your ZEN V Plus if it has found one. Make sure to install all the suggested updates.
Type windows update in the search box
Click the Windows Update icon from the search list
Windows Update windows will open
Click the Check for updates button
It will show number of updates available
Click Install Updates
The updates may take a while and your computer might restart a couple of times
Install the driver/software manually. (Make sure you installed windows update)
The songs you downloaded from limewire should be in a folder somewhere. When you set up limewire you created a folder where your limewire mp3s would be saved You may have used the default folder. Just find that folder where your files are saved then connect your Mp3 player to your computer. Your computer should recognize it as a drive and Appear in "My Computer". Double click on the Mp3 player icon in My Computer. This will open up the player. Then with the player and the limewire folder open just drag the Mp3s onto your Player. I hope this has been helpful.
Hi So I had that same issue but then i found the solution while playing with it. if you connect your zen to the computer, open up my computer and find the zen icon. click on it and go until you find the "my recordings" folder. click the folder and you should see all your recordings. right click the one you want to copy and click "copy". then open a folder in your computer and click "paste" and it works!
I think alot of people are having the same problem I was. We got home, opened the box, plugged it in the computer, and nothing useful happened so then we installed the mini-cd. Well the thing is windows stops looking for a driver once it searches and finds nothing, and unfortunately those of us using XP do not automatically have the drivers. So...
SOLUTION ------------------ -If you have not already installed the mini-cd, do so, or download from Creative's site in the support section(if you do you might want to grab the latest firmware update) -Once pack has been installed the drivers have been as well, BUT as I mentioned we now have to tell windows to look for them again. -Reconnect your Mosaic -Right click "My Computer" -Chose "Properties" -Click the "Hardware" tab -Click "Device Manager" -A window will pop up and you will see a long list with (hopefully only) one thing under the "Other Devices" sublist. It should be something along the lines of "Creative Zen Mosaic". Right click it -Chose "Update Drivers" -Follow prompts agreeing to search and auto install -Once install is done, in a moment the screen on your Mosaic will say "Docked" -Congratulations! If you have downloaded the updated firmware this is the time to install: -Ensure your Mosaic is in "Docked" mode -Execute the firmware update -Click "Upgrade" -Wait (it takes a moment or two) -Updater will say it is complete -Mosaic will reboot -Click "Close" -Congratulations!
Step 1: The Zen V Plus is an MP3 player that can play music and videos; you can also view pictures and listen to FM radio. Often, MP3 devices require upgrades. Firmware upgrades to the Zen V Plus fix bugs and sometimes upgrade the user interface, which can enhance your user experience and correct problems. You can upgrade your Creative Zen V Plus to version 1.32.01 through the Creative website.
Open your web browser and navigate the Zen V Plus support page (See Below). Click here > h Click "Download" under "Firmware" and choose to "Save" it to your computer. Connect your Zen to the computer using the Zen USB cable. Double-click the file that was downloaded to your computer to start the installation process. Agree to the terms and wait for the files to be transferred and installed onto your Zen. http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx?nDriverType=4 - type_4
When you plug the Mp3 player into 2 computers running slightly different versions of XP, a reformatting occurs which will cause it not to work on one PC or the other. You must reformat your player for the home computer. Actually, you might want to check the firmware also: Go to Creative's website and double-check the firmware - it will also give you the best way to reformat your player:
Have you tried to load the firmware? First you'll need to download the firmware to your PC from Creative's website: Click here. After you've downloaded it, connect your Zen via USB to your PC and open the firmware icon, then click "Upgrade."
