Question about Creative Labs Nomad MuVo2 FM MP3 Player
Well, here's the problem: I recently purchased a used Creative Nomad MuVo^2 and it was playing songs and all, but when i tried hooking it up through the sb port, it wasn't recognized by the computer. So, I went to the Creative website and dowloaded all the firmware needed for the player. But my plpayer was still not recognized by the computer. I have posted many questions on the Creative support labs, but noone seems to want to help. I tried the recovery mode and I finally figured out how to get it and all, but when i plug in my player via the usb port, the player's screen changes to looking like it is transferring data to the player, but it's not. I want to know if maybe the usb cable is bad or has some else had this problem and what they did to fix it. Thanks, Libertydork
I recently had a similar problem, and nothing I did helped; what I eventually did sounds pretty simple and possibly won't help ( I have a feeling that it might have been a USB port issue, more than anything). I have added the description of my problem below my 'solution'.
I disconnected the player from my PC, restarted the PC, disconnected & reconnected the battery from the Muvo2, turned the player on (just to check if it was reading the music) then turned the player off. Then (with the Muvo2 powered off) I reconnected the player to the USB cable; the darn thing was recognised immediately and was working fine...
The player was working fine, Windows (XP Pro) recognised the device as a Muvo2 & I could transfer files no problem; I clicked on 'Safely remove hardware' and removed the player. However, when I now try to reconnect the payer Windows gives me an error message, that one of my USB devices failed to connect and that it doesn't recognise the device. It suggests reconnecting, which does nothing...
The Muvo2 screen displays the 'connected to computer' image. If I disconnect using the 'Safely remove hardware' and unplug the cable, the player display says I need to connect to my PC and run scandisk. I can't get the computer to recognise the device, so I can't run scandisk. Removing and reinserting the player's battery got rid of the 'Scandisk' message & the player worked again, but it's still not connecting to the PC.
