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.

Creative zen


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.....

Zen Xtra 40 GB will NOT reboot, reinstall Firmware or connect to computer


This is lilocowboy, I don't remember my password is to log on and I missed a part of my email address to retreive it. Hope I can get that corrected...lol I was able to get my Zen Xtra to work and wanted to share with you all what I found.

Here is the link where I found out how to get my MP3 player to work:

http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=9829

Here is what I installed when it gets to that part in the instructions. My OS is Windows XP Pro so the files are based on that.

Driver: #1 - Creative ZEN and Jukebox Driver 2.01.00
Firmware: #1 - Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03
Application: #8 - Creative Software Suite for PlaysForSure-enabled Creative NOMAD Jukebox Zen Xtra Players

It works like a charm. I really like the application software because now I can put the Artist Folder with the Album folder and the tracks to that album in my Zen Xtra and not worry about dupe song names by different artists. I hope this helps you all.

Thank you walkertron for this fix

YAHOO!!!

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.
