Can not install MTp device

I'm running Windows XP Media Center Edition, version 2002, Service Pack 3 and Window Media Player 11. I have a Creative Zen microphoto and a Sansa clip, but can't get either one to install. When I plug them in the hardware installation wizard starts up, but quits with an error stating 'the specified service does not exist as an installed service'.

The best method of installation is to run the installation CD first, and THEN plug the mp3 player into the computer.

If that fails, I would try downloading the MTP Porting Kit from Microsoft's website - I wouldn't suggest this, except that both of your player's are doing the same thing.

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!

Upgrade firmware problem zen touch 20 gB


I contacted Creative about a similar problem with mine when I went onto Vista and they advised that I had to update the firmware. The downside they stated was that I would probably lose all my songs. The only way round this is to save them all to a non vista computer and then upgrade and hope you can put them back onto your player. Here is the info they sent me. Not sure if it works as I never got round to it.

I understand that you cannot get the software to work in your Windows
Vista.
With regards to your enquiry, there are two things that you need to
consider, player and the software.

For a proper set up, you should update the player with an MTP Firmware
version using a PC with Windows XP installed.
What is the MTP Firmware?
http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/kb/article.asp?l=3&sid=6773

Ensure that computer has both Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player
10.
a. Verify SP version, click+Start+Run+type Winver.

Next, update the driver first, once it has been installed, connect the
player then click the MTP firmware program.

Proceed to this link and download the following files needed.
http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/downloads/
just click on the link above then type the filename of the
driver version : JB3MV2_PCWDRV_US_2_01_00.EXE
firmware version : ZenTouchP4S_PCFW_LB_2_11_01.exe
at the search box provided.
download and save them to your folder. Click the program and follow
further instructions during the installation.

For instruction on updating the firmware, please use the link below and
select ZENTouch
http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/kb/article.asp?l=3&sid=4789

As for the software, you maybe required to download and install the
following updates below:
Please view important notes written at the website for further
information.

Proceed to this link http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/downloads/
then type the filenames: CMS5_PCAPP_LB_5_10_38.exe

CMS5_MTP_PCAPP_LB_5_00_36.exe

at the search box provided. Ensure device is attached before you start
the installation.

Sorry it's so long winded and I hope it works.

Zen vision m not recognized


Same problem. Solved by downgrading Windows Media Player to v.10. Do it through Control Panel and click Remove WMP11 and WMP11 runtime. Restart, connect your player and if not recognized do go to Control Panel=>System=>Hardware tab=>Devices. Find Portable Devices drivers in the menu and click Uninstall MTP device. If still not detected, go to Control Panel=>Detect New Hardware and run that. The player should connect automatically. WMP 11 has a glitch that disallows 3rd party MTP players. Intentional or purposeful? Ask B. Gates.

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.....

Creative zen sleek photo not recognized by win xp


I got my Creative Zen Sleek Photo from a friend and everything I did wouldn't let Windows recognize it, but then I got it to work almost magically.

1. Make sure you have the proper drivers installed for it that come with the CD. If you don't have the CD, you can download the ISO here.
http://wp.randyr.net/windows-xp/creative-zen-sleek-photo.html

2. Reboot. When it comes back up, plug the cable into your computer, then into your Sleek. The software should sync up. For some reason, my Zen wasn't being recognized from the usb port on my computer tower, but I plugged it into my monitor's USB port and then it worked. Try that, if none of that works, then it may be a problem with your computer not knowing which driver to assign to your Zen, and if so, try the steps below.

----

1. Plug your Sleek to your computer.
2. Open up Windows' Device manager (right-click on "My Computer" and select "Properties". Go to the "Hardware" tab, then click "Device Manager").
3. Locate the entry for "Creative Zen Sleek" in your device list. It should appear either under "Sound, video, and game controllers" or under "USB Devices". Once you locate the entry, uninstall it.
4. Unplug your Sleek and wait a few seconds.
5. Plug your Sleek back in and allow the "new Hardware Wizard" to identify and install the drivers for it.
