What format do dvd movies need to be converted to to play on a Creative Zen X-Fi?

Posted by on

  • starbucaneer Nov 06, 2008

    I have found iSofter DVD Platinum works best for me. The software is able to process dvd into a format that my Zen X-Fi can play, without having to convert the file again with the creative Zen X-Fi video converter. It was very frustrating and time consuming having to process the dvd twice.

Could anybody help me rip some dvds onto my my creative zen x-fi. i know its lame but i dont know how to do it. i can do cds. is it the same?

It is not difficult to put DVDs onto your Creative Zen X-FI. However, commercial DVDs are generally encrypted. In order to copy these DVD to Creative ZEN, you'd need to break that encryption, which can be done by Daniusoft DVD Ripper. It is a powerful and easy-to-use DVD to Creative Zen X-Fi Converter software

It can convert DVD to Creative Zen video including AVI,WMV,MPEG that fits for Creative Zen. This DVD to Creative Zen Converter can also convert DVD to Creative Zen audio MP3, WMA, WAV with super fast speed and excellent quality.

Also, it is very easy to use. All you need to do is:
  1. 1. Importing you DVDs;
  2. 2. Choose output format and path;
  3. 3. Then start converting.
All the tasks of ripping DVD to Creative Zen files will be down in good quality and high speed.

How do you put Videos on The Creative Zen Mosaic MP3


well, creative zen likes avi, mpg and wmv formats

the reason that your creative zen won't read the avi is because the necessary codec is missed.

you can use iorgsoft creative zen video converter to convert the video to mp4,wmv then put them to creative zen.

if you want to put DVD onto creative Zen, fine, you can use iOrgsoft DVD to Creative Zen converter to remove the DRM(Digital Right Management) and regional restriaction from DVD, and you can also use it to convert DVD to avi, wmv or mpg for playback on creative zen.

Can't convert mp4 files through Creative Zen video converter


Creative Zen has its own video format, so you need a thrid party video converter to convert videos to the format fit for your player.
Here I recommend you try Wondershare Video Converter Platinum, which could convert between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.) that support all popular portable media players (such as Creative Zen, Zune/Zune HD, iPod/iPhone and PSP) and the latest iPod Nano 5G, iPod Touch 3, iPhone 3GS/OS 3.1.

Cant get videos on my Creative Zen Mozaic 4gb


The videos have to be converted using Creative Centrale in order to placed on the player. This was the same way with a lot of Creative's Zen line of players also.
If you don't have the copy that the Mosaic came with, you can download it here.

It is under the "Applications" section.

Cant import video


You need the software for the Mozaic. Most Creative brand players need the software it came bundled with to convert videos before it can added to the player.
If you don't have the Centrale software CD to convert videos, you can download it from Creative's site here:
http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=213&CatName=MP3+Players&subCatID=214&subCatName=ZEN&prodID=17897&prodName=ZEN+Mozaic.

Choose the "Applications" section on this page, you want the Creative Zen Mozaic Starter Pack.

Cannot copy dvd onto zen creation mp3 played


DVD needs to be converted to a format recognized by the mp3 player typically it will be .wmv or similar. You can go to cnet.com and download "any video converter" and convert dvd format to wmv and then transfer to the zen..I have used this successfully with my zen and transferred the movie 300 and Bull Durham.

Good Luck
