Zen Xtra Error Message When Creating Playlist

I own two different Nomad Zen Xtra's, 80GB and 120GB (memory upgrade). On both of these devices, I am experiencing a problem when I attempt to create a Playlist. It simply gives me an ERROR message, and when I try to open, there is nothing there, although the tracks seem to have been successfully uploaded in Creative Explorer. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a limit to the number of Playlists that can be created? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
-K

The only solution I know of is to reformat the hard drive. It's pretty time-intensive, but it does work. I use Notmad to back up the playlists. Once restored, they all work, even the ones that had initially failed.

I've never had the problem on my 60GB Zen Xtra (non-upgraded hard drive), only with my 120GB, so my naive guess is that the problem may be caused by the machine somehow not handling the extra hard drive space properly.

Also, both times it's happened, I've seen a warning sign: I usually have a lot of stuff loaded into "selected music", and when I add another album or two it partially clears the selections. And it does so in a weird way: only a few selections remain visible, yet it keeps playing at least some of the now-invisible selections.

I'm starting to think it's time to switch players, and maybe get something I can put the Rockbox OS on.

When it the zen is turned on it says firmware


Had the same problem and nearly went nuts trying to fix it. Here's what I did:

1. Uninstall all creative driver & creative software.
2. Uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 (Rolled back to WMP 10) and restarted PC.
3. Uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 Runtime and restarted PC.
4. Downloaded and Installed the latest free version of Winamp from http://www.winamp.com
5. Connected my A/C Power Cord to my Nomad Jukebox then connected my Nomad Jukebox via USB cable to the Computer.

The computer should then recognize the Nomad Jukebox as "Found New Hardware" then "MTP Device" and lastly "Your new hardware is installed and ready to use.

6. If you haven't already, go to the creative website and download the Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03 and save it to your computer.
7. Run the Firmware (Make sure Nomad Jukebox is connected) and at this point the Computer should recognize the Nomad Jukebox and begin the upgrade.

After your upgrade is complete, You can go ahead and re-download Windows Media Player 11 and it will recognize the Nomad Jukebox.Not sure what version of windows you have, but I have two computers, one with windows xp and the other has windows 7 and Im able to transfer music perfectly fine with Windows Media Player and RealPlayer on both computers. I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

HElp!!!!


After three months of trying and trying in many computers, following many, many procedures found all over the Internet, my Creative Nomad has accepted the firmware and has borned again.
What I did?
1. Connected the Nomad on a computer with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 9, that never has been touched by a creaive device.
It recognizes the device but can´t find any update to the drivers,
2. Updated Windows Media Player 9 to Windows Media Player 10,
3. Restart the computer
4. Connect the Nomad and the computer recognizes the device and autamtically search and found updated MPT drivers.
5. Run the firmware update program "ZenXtraP4SAudible_PCFW_LB_2_10_03 (Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03)"
6. Finally the magic button always has been disabled was enabled so start reloading firmware.
And now the Nomad is working in windows vista.

The difference between the computer where the firmware works and the others is that this has never had media player 10 or 11 and never has installed creative drivers.
Hope this can be useful to smoeone, somewhere, sometime.....
