Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

Zen Vision:M not even detected on Vista!

I have had my Zen for about a year now and have had no problems at all whatsoever with Vista. Recently, whenever I plug it into my computer to sync music on it, the computer won't even recognize it! When I looked in my devices, it says, "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)". What is this supposed to mean??
Like, when I plug it in, it must recognize it cuz it makes a clicky noise, but it doesn't come up with the docked logo on my zen.
I'm not too spectacular with computers, so if you could be specific, I'd truly appreciate it! Thanks!!

I had the same problem with my Zen MicroPhoto. I finally found a simple solution:

--Go to your computer's Device Manager (with your player plugged in)
--Find your MP3 player under Portable Devices
--Right click on your player and click Uninstall
--Unplug your player from your computer when the uninstall finishes
--Plug your player back in to your computer
--Vista will automatically reinstall the driver, and your player should appear in My Computer

I have no idea what causes the players to suddenly quit working, but I'm glad I finally found an easy way to fix it.

I plugged in my creative zen mozaic to transfer


You can use creative centrale, but I personally wouldn't suggest it. It is overcomplicated. Whenever I transfer music I usually just use Sync on Windows Media Player.

My creative software for Zen Sleek Photo won't load on Vista


Vista by default will support the Zen Sleek Photo as an MTP device, which means that Windows Media Player will recognize it as well as Explorer.

You can use WMP to sync music to it, and Explorer to drag/drop photos to it.

Unable to sync music purchased from itunes onto zen mp3


I believe iTunes may not like to sync with not apple players, but I am sure DRM protection is to blame here. You can try to sync your music with the software provided by Zen, or a program called MediaMonkey, to see if it works.
Otherwise, if the music is DRM protected .mp4, you can always burn the songs into a standard AUDIO CD, and then rip the music back to your computer, that way it loses the DRM protection, and should be easy to sync without problems.
