XP would not recognize my e250 (new version)


The latest version of the Sansa E250 only has one mode... MTP. USB mode has been removed. My windows XP laptop would see the device and install it fine, but Media Player, Yahoo Music, and any other software would not recognize the MTP device until I installed Windows Media Player 11.

Once installed, even Yahoo Jukebox recognized the device.

I returned 1 & got a new one before I tried this solution. So if you're having a similar issue, don't return it until you've tried the latest version of WMP.

Hope this helps.

All I want to do is run the playstation thru my computer. Do I have to connect it to the internet to do that?


not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.

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!

Cant media share with laptop


The free edition of TVersity is the best software for you, it is FREE, and is easy to setup you simply "share with tversity" from the right click menu on your computer and you are set, the ps3 automatically find the media server and allows you to view the files on the ps3

I'm trying to add to my player. The player itself says it's connected but the Windows Media Player isn't recognizing that it is connected. The start Sync button is not reacting when I click on it. Problem?


I;ve notice if your computer is not configure properly, windows media player gives you very hard time syncing devices. You also, should check and see what version of windows media player you are using. 11 will sync properly with most devices.

My PS3 doesn't find any media servers. Even though I can browse the internet.What do I need to do to be able to read the media servers? I have a windows vista premium PC and I am new at using a computer.


Hello,

I did many tests with several Media Servers and the following points had often been the Connectiong-Problem to the Media-Server.

  1. Nr. 1 - The Firewall on your PC:
    I tested a few Media-Servers and often the problem with the connection of the devices came up from the firewall (in my case ZoneAlarm).
    To Solve this i stopped the firewall, started the Media Server (e.g. TVersity or MS MediaPlayer) and then I restarted the firewall again.
    After the in 99% of the cases the firewall then asked for creating the rules for the Media-Server Software.

  2. The Router's Port / UPNP-Setting:
    Most of the Media-Servers are needing open ports for the Media-Sharing (e.g. TVersity needs an open Port 41952).
    If the port is not opened for the connection you will in the best cases have very bad Sharing-Performance but in most cases you will at fact of the Port-Problem not be able to create a connection between the devices.
    So you have to open the needed Ports at your Router.

    If you don't want to open each needed port by hand you can also (if supported by the router) activate the UPNP-Function (Universal Plug&Play). With this function enabled each device who needs a open port can open the port by itsself (But don't forget the security problem with this function - Even if it is a fine thing it is really danger).

  3. Problem: New MP3's are not shown on a connected Server:
    Often it is a good Idea to reboot your Playstation and then reconnect to the MediaServer (New MP3's and so are then refreshed).

  4. The IP-Adresses of the Devices
    You have also take to look at the Network-Adresses of the Devices (PS3 & PC). They should be in the same Net-Range (e.g. PS3: 192.168.0.55 & PC: 192.168.0.56).
    The most easy way to be sure that this is done is using the DHCP-Function of your Router. The Router then gives each Device a IP from a predefined Range.
Hopefully I could help you to solve your connection problem with one or even more of the Settings/Points above.
I wish you a nice weekend.

With kind regards,
S. Bosch
