I think this means that Creative Media Source doesn't recognize a program on your computer that can open the file or Creative Media Source doesn't know a program to open the file. You can always Google the file extension like .avi or .wmv to find software that can play it or convert it. You can find the extension of the file by right click>properties a window will appear and will show the file name and will look like this:
thisisafile.avi
blahblah.mp4

My zen stone mp3 player is corrupted and unreadable


Try to do a right click on the zen in My computer and seelct Format. This will wipeout everything that is there on the player and you'll need to copy stuff to it again. If you are unable to format the player then this could be a hardware failure.

Can't convert mp4 files through Creative Zen video converter


Creative Zen has its own video format, so you need a thrid party video converter to convert videos to the format fit for your player.
Here I recommend you try Wondershare Video Converter Platinum, which could convert between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.) that support all popular portable media players (such as Creative Zen, Zune/Zune HD, iPod/iPhone and PSP) and the latest iPod Nano 5G, iPod Touch 3, iPhone 3GS/OS 3.1.

Can't Add files to mp3 after reinstalling-device not found.


I have an older ZEN, so I'm not sure if I have Creative Media Source 5, but mine never worked really well either. My Windows Media Player recognizes mine, so I just sync to that library. I even have gotten a new laptop since I got my ZEN and I never downloaded anything, I just connected it to Window's Media. I hope that's helpful!

Converting video


Double-check to make sure you have all the correct Codecs installed:

Not every file type is going to be able to be converted using this siftware - you may need to convert first to avi or some format that the Creative converter recognizes, and then re-run the conversion and transfer.

Unable to add avi files to to media library


hey,

you won't be able to sync the avi file because your type of avi is not supported in the Zen

if you have the creative software on your computer well go
into the menu and select creative, because I don't have it in front of me I can't tell you where this is though all you have to do is search through and look to find "video converter" it's as easy as that.
all you do is when you find this is browse for you file and say what format you want to format to and start formating. they will ask if you want to sync you finished file to your zen.

MY FROZEN MP3!!!!


My MuVO TX was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in March 2007. If you haven't updated the player's firmware since then, try downloading it and installing Creative MuVo TX FM Firmware 1.24.02.

If your computer is having problems even recognizing the player, you could try reinstalling the Creative Mass Storage Driver 1.07.00.250.

If you really want to wipe the MuVO's files and start over:
  1. Plug your player into your computer
  2. Right-click on "My Computer"
  3. Select "Manage"
  4. Click on "Disk Management"
  5. One of the volumes listed should be your MuVO. You can right-click on it from here, and select "Format." (This will not erase the firmware that makes the player work, so don't worry about that. The firmware is stored else.)
