Question about Element Electronics Zr-Element Digital Media Player
I have tried so many ways to try to make these things work. i bought 3 for my kids for christmas and the only thing i can understand is the vista os is not recognized by the product this has been very common with vista. unless you can help me here these things are going back.
After hours of messing with the dumb thing. the mini disc kept jumping around in my cd rom so placed a very small piece of tape on it (highly not recomended) to help hold it in place while the cd rom read the disk. then i copied the disk into a file and clicked on the install app mp3 player utilities 4.18 and it began to install. then after looking it over. i shut down my computer. while it was shut down i plugged in the mp3 player and started up my computer. after i ;ogged on, windows asked if i wanted to search and install the driver i clicked install. when it couldn't find the driver in updates it asked if i had a diskor do i want to browse my computer. i clicked on browse searched for the mp3 player utilities 4.18 highlted it and clicked ok and it began to install and stopped half way through. and said there was an error and a part was missing. although i noticed a new drive with an asian name and there it was. i right clicked then clicked properties and gave it a new name. it worked! what a stupid process. i don't know for sure but i think it would work with any older version of windows just not vista.
