Re: someone please help me!!!

My zen has been doing this for the past couple months too. the screen appears in vertical bars and is fuzzy. the only thing is to go to the store/ site where you bought it and ask for a replacement.

If you have windows set to do automatic updates, you most likely had a windows update installed that caused this conflict with Win Media Player 11. No fix has been posted by Microsoft yet, so the only workaround is to Uninstall/Rollback Windows Media Player 11. Goto <Control Panel<Add/Remove Programs and remove Windows Media Player 11. Follow prompts, restart computer when prompted to. Also uninstall Windows Media Player 11 Runtime application following same procedure above.
This will roll your Windows Media Player back to version 10 or 9, whichever you had installed prior to version 11. You will need to re-configure Windows Media Player again.

Your Zen should now be recognized by WMP and Creative software. You probably need to upgrade your firmware at this point, follow the instructions on upgrading your firmware, and you should be good to go.

This is a windows problem, not a creative problem. Dont blame Creative for the screwed up hotfixes that Microsoft puts out on a regular basi

Creative zen says Playback error

I had the same problem: "Playback error", and nothing i did, helped. But when i pushed the reset buttom, below the on/of button, it turned of, and when i switched it on again, it worked. Maybe you could try again?

Otherwise I say this on YouTube, but thought it was a little drastic ;-)" />

I can't get album art to appear on my Creative Zen (4GB)

Though this might be a bit late - Try WinAMP. I use Winamp and EVERY SINGLE album art gets transferred. Hope this helps!

Connection Problems:
· Make sure you have media player 11
· If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
· Download recovery tool off creative's website.
· go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

· Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix
If that doesn't fix it try the USB cable

Zen nano plus mp3 player 1gb

I`ve had the same problem twice, it seems the player erases the whole firmware when this happens. You can fix this by plugging it to your computer in recovery mode, this will allow you to reinstall firmware.(Search google for zen nano plus recovery mode to find instructions.)

I don't think people on here are allowed to advertise directly for their services. There are several websites on Google if you search under "zen repair." Also if you scroll down a bit you will see a little box on this page that says "Repair Service." Just put in your zip code to search for repair services near you.
