Re: A problem with turning on . . .

This firmware upgrade only works with Creative MuVo Micro N200 players. Do not install this upgrade to other players.
You will lose all content in your player when you install the firmware. Back up any audio or data files in your player to your computer before upgrading the firmware.
Before installing the firmware, please complete the following procedures:

  1. Download the latest device driver if you have not installed any drivers for your player. The file name is MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250.exe.
  2. Connect your player to your PC.
  3. Close all active applications (for example, Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, or Windows Media Player etc), as well as background applications such as Norton anti-virus applications.
  4. Double click on the file MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250 to install it. Follow the instructions on the screen.
To install the firmware for your player, follow the procedures below:
  1. Download the firmware update, MuVoN200_PCFW_LF_1_20_04.exe to your hard drive.
  2. Connect your player to your PC if it is not already connected.
  3. Double click the firmware upgrade file.
  4. When prompted to set your player in Recovery mode, disconnect your player from your PC.
  5. Remove the battery from the player, press and hold the Play button while connecting the player to the USB port.
  6. Continue to hold the Play button for about 10 seconds after your player is connected to the USB port.
  7. When the Find New Hardware dialog box appears on your PC screen, release the Play button.
  8. If this is the first time a player is installed as Player Recovery Device, Windows will find a Player Recovery Device (or USB Device), and prompt you for drivers. Click on No , and select Do not search. I will choose the driver to install. Windows will install the necessary drivers automatically.
  9. Double click on the downloaded firmware again (MuVoN200_PCFW_LF_1_20_04.exe) to update the player's firmware.
  10. During the firmware update process, make sure to check the box next to Format Data Area under Download options.

I/O device error

My MuVO TX was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in March 2007. If you haven't updated the player's firmware since then, try downloading it and installing Creative MuVo TX FM Firmware 1.24.02.

If you can't get your computer to even recognize the player anymore, you could try reinstalling the Creative Mass Storage Driver

Did you format it properly?

Usually MP3 Players are to be formatted with the FAT32 File System. This can be easily done on Windows.
Simply connect the Mp3 Player to your computer via the USB. Then Windows should be able to detect it just fine. Go to My Computer and right clock on the new device (that is the MP3 Player) and select "Format".
Format as FAT32 and try again.

PS: You may want to backup all data (if that is possible) before you attempt this Format thing.
