Creative Nomad Jukebox "no connection" problem

Did you resolve this problem by actually rebooting XP? I have exactly the same problem, and have tried all the fixes and patches that Creative has. I've tried scaling back to a Media Player 10, rebooting my Nomad software, until i've exhausted all my avenues. My ports work fine for other plug ins. My computer doesn't "read a problem" when I ask it to troubleshoot. I've totally run out of ideas.

SOURCE: 60GB Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra stuck in startup loop

As odd as this sounds, try warming it up. Put it under your arm or on the defroster or where ever. When I would leave mine in the car overnight last winter it would do that rebooting loop like yours until I warmed it up. Don't have a clue why it worked, but it did. Go figure.

SOURCE: Creative Nomad Jukebox zen xtra says Firmware problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would appear that the fix requires a Windows machine. Solution then would be two fold:

  • download the firmware update/fix even meant for Windows;
  • install and run Windows inside your Mac.
The last could be achieved by:
Of course the easiest is to use a Windows based computer of a friend.

Your Creative Zen Nomad Xtra mp3 player uses a memory system similar to a flash/thumb drive much like the hard disk of any computer. Just as a computer on certain instances freezes/hangs, the same would happen to your MP3. Like again the computer, the OS would need to be re-installed. In your MP3 the OS is the firmware which has to be reloaded/updated.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

When it the zen is turned on it says firmware


Had the same problem and nearly went nuts trying to fix it. Here's what I did:

1. Uninstall all creative driver & creative software.
2. Uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 (Rolled back to WMP 10) and restarted PC.
3. Uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 Runtime and restarted PC.
4. Downloaded and Installed the latest free version of Winamp from http://www.winamp.com
5. Connected my A/C Power Cord to my Nomad Jukebox then connected my Nomad Jukebox via USB cable to the Computer.

The computer should then recognize the Nomad Jukebox as "Found New Hardware" then "MTP Device" and lastly "Your new hardware is installed and ready to use.

6. If you haven't already, go to the creative website and download the Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03 and save it to your computer.
7. Run the Firmware (Make sure Nomad Jukebox is connected) and at this point the Computer should recognize the Nomad Jukebox and begin the upgrade.

After your upgrade is complete, You can go ahead and re-download Windows Media Player 11 and it will recognize the Nomad Jukebox.Not sure what version of windows you have, but I have two computers, one with windows xp and the other has windows 7 and Im able to transfer music perfectly fine with Windows Media Player and RealPlayer on both computers. I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Extra


Whirring noise = bad, probably needs to be replaced, BUT:
Uninstall everything from your PC, reboot, reinstall driver and the Explorer (I do not use MediaSource, only the Explorer).

If it didn't work out follow these steps:

1. Uninstall Creative Media Source and all related software.
2. Install the driver. In the installation CD the driver is usually in \Drivers\English
3. Turn on the Nomad an connect it to the PC.
4. Install MediaSource(the program requires that you have the nomad connected while installing)
5. Install MediaSource plugin
6. Try transferring files.

If you?re still running into problem know that there are other programs capable of handling MediaSource?s functions, such as - Portable Audio Devices Power Toy , NomadSync, Real player, and there?s also a Zen plugin for the Winamp.

Good luck!

HElp!!!!


After three months of trying and trying in many computers, following many, many procedures found all over the Internet, my Creative Nomad has accepted the firmware and has borned again.
What I did?
1. Connected the Nomad on a computer with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 9, that never has been touched by a creaive device.
It recognizes the device but can´t find any update to the drivers,
2. Updated Windows Media Player 9 to Windows Media Player 10,
3. Restart the computer
4. Connect the Nomad and the computer recognizes the device and autamtically search and found updated MPT drivers.
5. Run the firmware update program "ZenXtraP4SAudible_PCFW_LB_2_10_03 (Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03)"
6. Finally the magic button always has been disabled was enabled so start reloading firmware.
And now the Nomad is working in windows vista.

The difference between the computer where the firmware works and the others is that this has never had media player 10 or 11 and never has installed creative drivers.
Hope this can be useful to smoeone, somewhere, sometime.....

Update software complatible with windows vista


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.
