Hi everyone,

ive got a thermatake media lab, i took it from my old xp machine in fully working order and connected it up correctly into my new vista 64 bit machine, its weird, ive installed the most up to date drivers that work with vista 64, and ive even tried rolling back the drivers too but i still get the same imon error messege: "iMON H/W is disconnected". thus meaning i dont get a display on the VFD nor do i get any fuctionality out of the remote.

any ideas guys and girls?

I plugged it in to charge and it went into connect

Hi shannonaliot,
Walkmans are supposed to go into a non-responsive state when they're connected, no buttons would work and it'll only bear one line of "Connected" or something else - there is nothing unusual about this. It should work again when disconnected. But just a reminder - do not suddenly disconnect the device if it is not recognized as an MTP device.

Not charging

if its a rather old or heavily used mp3 player the most likely cause is a faulty battery

Hi my laptop will not recognize my 2GB creative zen. I have installed all of the software that I would need for it to be able to use it as far as synchronizing but It is a no go as far as my zen being...

hey.. i replied to another question like this before lol.. i think with some mp3's they will only recognise windows visa and not any other windows eg: windows xp or 2000.. i think it may be so everyone goes out and buys vista so they can use there ipods, mp3's n other devices

If the unit works when plugged in but won't charge, you probably need to replace the battery. An original manufacturer one will cost about 40 dolars and a compatible 3rd party one will cost about half that.

3. connect your zen, it will show up as MTP
4. click on your firmware, and at last it showed it was connected.

Zen Micro wont exit recovery mode or clean up

OK to everyone who messed up the firmware of Zen Micro and run vista, u r all idiots, including me. my zen was stuck in recovery mode and recovery menu as everyone experienced and tried to upgrade the firmware via the firmware updater that didnt work, right? ok through research and time i came to realize that what was causing the updater to fail (...please connect your media player...) is windows media player 11 (ELEVEN !!) zen update firmware will work only with windows media player 10 (TEN !!) installed. y? i dont know and i dont care anymore now that my micro is fixed up and running with the latest released firmware.
method 1:
u can find smne with xp and wmp10 (rare) install drivers and run the updater or
method 2:
u can DIY and since it is impossible to uninstall wmp11 i did the unthinkable, no no not format and install xp to use wmp10 no no.

instead i used a program called VIRTUAL MACHINE WORKSTATION 6.5 (for links keep confidential suppling ur email to me) this program will allow u to install and run several operating systems at a time regardless of your current hardware, it will run as an application in vista O/S. so i installed xp pro (on vmware 6.5) that i had handy somewhere, and then the drivers from the creative disc. then i run the firmware updater and yes it recognises my zen for the first time and loads a brand new firmware. easy as that, zen reboots and main menu appears, what a joy.

so all i used was:
vmware 6.5
xp pro (wmp10)
creative disc
firmware updater by creative

installing operating systems on vmware is very easy and doesnt require restarts etc.. u can switch through vista and xp like a window application just like that.

hope this helps, zen micro is by far the ultimate mp3 player for its sound breathtaking performance and loudness, totally worth the trouble. this is 100% fixable
