Question about Creative Labs Creative Technology Zen MP3 Player

1 Answer

About adding songs to ZEN Mosaic

Basically 2 problems. First one appeared when i downloaded some songs using Firefox. All the songs with WMA extension gave an error message about not having a license for using them, despite the 20€ i paid. I tried a converter from WMA to MP3 but still the same problem. Any solution about that?

Second problem, after i tried everything and didnt work i decide to transfer songs from my pc to the player. Despite the fact that all 4000 songs are MP3 format, the "Creative Centrale" program which comes with the CD, recognised only 6!!!

Where is the problem, or what i am doing wrong?

The first one is a DRM error and should be solved by the FairUse4WM which you can download for free from the following link.:
http://undrm.info/remove-DRM-protection/FairUse4WM-freeware-DRM-removal-Windows-software-Strip-copy-protection-from-WMV-ASF-WMA-Windows-Media-Player.htm
This will rip the DRM off the tracks and you should be able to listen to the without problem.

The other problem could be caused by codec differences. With GSpot you can check what codec was used to create the mp3s /both the working ones and the others/. If different codecs appear than you just have to reconvert the non working ones using the codec which workes.

You can download GSpot from here, for free.:

My Creative Zen 4gb will not appear in Itunes ?


Hello,

To convert iTunes music for Creative ZEN, you shall download TunePat audio converter from a website. You shall run TunePat audio converter and iTunes simultaneously and set TunePat as the default burning drive for iTunes. You may also create an iTunes playlist to hold the songs you want to convert for Creative ZEN.
Once the conversion is completed, you can find the MP3 or WMA songs in the output folder, with all ID3 tags and album information intact. Then you can open Creative MediaSource and sync the converted to your Creative ZEN player.

Take care.

Can't load anything now on facebook


You can try a number of different solutions which have worked for some people:

Solution 1.
In your browser, type in the address bar http://www.facebook.com/login (which doesnt exist)
This will take you to a different login page which reads: "The page you requested was not found."
At the top of this page is a login box. Try using this login box to login to facebook.
.
Solution 2.
Download Firefox 3.5 and used that instead of Internet Explorer.
here is the link for downloading it
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html
.
Tip: If you are using the Adblock extension with Firefox, and subscribe to an ad list (basically a list of known ads online), it blocks a special site (fbcdn.net)
that Facebook uses to login.
.
Go to: http://www.facebook.com/login.php (the page you are having trouble logging in) and click on the
Adblock Stop Sign on top of Firefox, and you will see in red a url that includes
fbcdn.net. Right click on that, and add an exception for the entire fbcdn.net domain.
Reload the page. This should fix the problem.
.
Solution 3.
Use a Proxy Server to connect to Facebook.com
1. Search Proxy in GOOGLE
2. Select Proxy Server
3. Type in facebook.com (in the proxy server webpage)
4. login into facebook account
5. (although all games will work - but Farmville may have problems loading).

My zen mosaic is not downloading songs


You may be looking at the library on your computer. In Centrale with the player connected, double click on the Mosaic player icon at the bottom of the list on the left of the screen. This brings up a contents list identical to that above(which is for the PC not the player)

I have a Creative Zen V 1gb, when I put songs on it with Windows Media Player, and unplug it afterwards, and when i want to start listening the songs on my MP3, it doesnt show any tracks! while WMP says...


Try updating your firmware, because "default" firmwares have problems sometimes with WMP Sync features that also adds a DRM code to each transfered track.

If not, make sure you use standard .mp3 extensions for your songs, because on basic settings WMP converts your audio files to .wma when you transfer it to an mp3 player

Will not accept more songs or convert from wma to mp3


Have you tried backing up all the songs and re-formatting the player? This sounds like it could be a filesystem problem...

Or you could check for a firmware upgrade. That's what fixed mine when it wouldn't play mp3s; a new firmware might have a bugfix for your problem. Firmware is available at:

Instruction for zen mosaic by creative


I think alot of people are having the same problem I was. We got home, opened the box, plugged it in the computer, and nothing useful happened so then we installed the mini-cd. Well the thing is windows stops looking for a driver once it searches and finds nothing, and unfortunately those of us using XP do not automatically have the drivers. So...

SOLUTION
------------------
-If you have not already installed the mini-cd, do so, or download from Creative's site in the support section(if you do you might want to grab the latest firmware update)
-Once pack has been installed the drivers have been as well, BUT as I mentioned we now have to tell windows to look for them again.
-Reconnect your Mosaic
-Right click "My Computer"
-Chose "Properties"
-Click the "Hardware" tab
-Click "Device Manager"
-A window will pop up and you will see a long list with (hopefully only) one thing under the "Other Devices" sublist. It should be something along the lines of "Creative Zen Mosaic". Right click it
-Chose "Update Drivers"
-Follow prompts agreeing to search and auto install
-Once install is done, in a moment the screen on your Mosaic will say "Docked"
-Congratulations!
If you have downloaded the updated firmware this is the time to install:
-Ensure your Mosaic is in "Docked" mode
-Execute the firmware update
-Click "Upgrade"
-Wait (it takes a moment or two)
-Updater will say it is complete
-Mosaic will reboot
-Click "Close"
-Congratulations!

Hope that helps.

My creative zen keeps freezing!


Hi -
I know this response is way late to help you, but I was having the same problem. I could turn the zen on fine, but as soon as I tried to play music it would freeze and I couldn't turn it off. Using the reset button didn't help any since it would still freeze if I tried to play anything.

But I found reformatting the entire zen totally fixed it.

-directions-
Connect your zen to your computer, go to windows explorer, click computer on the side bar, and your zen should be under "portable devices". Click on it. You should now be viewing the "storage media". Right click and select "Format...". This completely resets the zen, clearing any preferences or media you put on it and the freezing problem.

It was annoying putting all the pictures, videos, and itunes back onto my zen, but at least it works now. Since I've reformatted it, I have had no problems.

Hopefully this helps others who experience this problem.
