Computer not recognizing SD card as external storage/Creative Zen

I added a 2gb SD card to my Creative Zen but I am not able to get my computer to recognize the SD card as external storage. I have done a lot of research and have found many sites that say Windows Explorer should recognize the card as external storage. Until I figure out a way to get my computer to recognize the SD card, I cannot add media to the card. Thanks for your help!

    Disregard. I figured it out on my own! You have to access the memory card from the Creative Zen menu and select Removable Disk. Once selected, connect to the USB.

Try going to the memory card option on the main menu, then go to 'Removable Storage', then the Zen should either tell you to connect a USB cord or insert a memory card. Try it, if not I dont know.

How does ram vs internal storage work on tablet?


There are 2 storage in just about every smartphone or tablet. There is an internal storage, usually about 1gb. or 2gb. And there an internal SD storage, which is not same as the external micro sd card. RAM stands for Read Access Memory, it will not work as storage. Now, when you download an app it is usually save in the internal storage. If you move an app without an external micro sd card inserted, you are moving them to the internal SD storage. If possible got to setting>storage and check how is the storage divided, if you insert the external micro sd card it should display 3 separate bars. Also, another way to move apps and other things around is by using ES File Explorer. Check that out first and I hope you do resolve the problem, best of luck.

Can't move things to sd card


One question. Were you able to move apps to the sd card before?
When you go to settings, storage, does it show the external sd card? I want to explain something first. The sd card is an expandable storage card, but it won't store your apps. If you want to check it out just insert the old memory card in a computer and look for any apps. Smartphones usually comes equip with 2 types of storage:
1. Internal phone memory: which could range from 500mb. to 2gb. of storage. This will be by default the location where the apps would be saved.
2. Internal SD Card: this is an expand storage that is already in the smartphone. Notice that when you see an ad for the phone it usually advertise whether it is 4, 8 or 16gb. That is the internal SD storage.
The third option is the external micro sd card, which is the one you are having problem with.
In storage under settings, see if you have an option to mount the sd card, maybe it's not mounted. You can also clon or copy everything from the old sd card to the new sd card using a computer, and then try it again.

How do you access sd card


You can insert the SD memory card into an USB card reader and then plug it into the computer's USB port.
The computer will see the SD card as an external storage device, you can then view the contents of the SD card and copy the files to your computer.

How do i get it to connect to my computer to get files from there?


Plug in the USB cable. My Vista machine recognized the Cruz as an external storage device (like a flash drive) and displayed a folder for the internal 4gb flash and another folder for the 2gb SD card I added. You can't access the folders from the Cruz while the PC is connected but you'll see any files you copy over once the cable is disconnected. (use Astro to view files in the folders)

First of all right click on that drive and go properties and check the space available - if its 2gb then :-( but if you find the same space like utilized and free space then try the same device in different computer and possible with different OS like xp-3 or 7 and cross your fingers ..

I put my sandisk into the front of my computer, and my computer hasn't yet recognized it. How do I access my pictures?


As stupid as this sounds, make sure the micro SD is in the correct slot and fits snugly. If you find that you don't actually have a micro-sd slot, you can purchase a piece that the micro-sd goes into creating a disk that's SD size.

If that's not the problem, go to Start > Computer > and look for the removable storage device. If it shows up, dbl click on it and see if your pictures come up.

If that doesn't work, you may consider buying an external card reader that connects using a USB port on your computer. That should work. If not, there is a strong possibility your micro-sd is corrupted.

If you have the ZEN V Plus or any ZEN V series the answer is the same.... No all you get is what you bought…..So if you bought the 2GB unit then that’s all your going to get L ....If you bought another "slot card" for it you could get an adapter for the “slot card” to fit in the top UBS slot but the device will not recognize the extra memory.......sorry to be the bearer of bad news.....but the ZEN V Plus is available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB capacities. I hope this help and please give me a rating......I'm always trying to improve...
