Question about Creative Labs Zen Touch MP3 Player

1 Answer

My creative Zen wont sync.

Yesterday I got my self a creative zen as a gift to myself. I had this type before(2.6" screen, Black, not entirely sure of classifcation, buttons on the side) and didnt have a problem with loading songs into it. But this was didnt cooperate. I use to ba able to just plug it in with the usb cord and it would show up on my computer. Than I would just drag and drop my songs. But this time I couldnt. So I installed the Zen Manager thing and it wouldnt recognize the Zen either. Actually, before I installed the manager, my computer would recognize the Zen and it would show up in my computer. Now it doesnt at all. Yet when I plug it in to the USB it would show as being charged.
Any help?

Hi I have creative zen touch mp3 player.

I dodn't know if this will help your problem but what i did to mine was; I tried to use the audio sync button (function) in the creative organizer which you should install from the installation disc, when you get when you buy the mp3 player.

I wanted to sycn across songs from my computer onto onto the mp3 player but it didn't work.

Then i realised my mp3 player was low on battery so i plugged it into the mains and tried again. That helped but also i kept unplugging and replugging the player until it says 'docking' on the player screen using the usb lead from player into cpu unit and, this i found worked and solved my problem. And now it sycns my songs over to my player now.

My only problem now is that my scroll touch pad isn't working, and hasn't worked for years- as i left it for years cause that was the problem i had in the first place.

P.S I also i read this,

How to fixya Creative Zen MX 16 GB MP3 Player


I realized my firmware was still 1.0. and tht it coudnt b upgraded to 2.x.xx till media player 10 was installed and media player 11 removed.before you do anything......back up all music on your zen touch because the upgrade to 2.0.xx deletes everything on your mp3 player and sometimes the player wont be readable after uninstalling .......then you can do an auto update: http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx?nDriverType=1#Manualselection from the manual downloads page, I did.. and there was numerous updates tht popped up after removing windows 11 media player and the other item that was required in the instructions located here: http://support.creative.com/kb/ShowArticle.aspx?sid=16737 .
Hope this clears the air about upgrading the firmware to 2.0 so tht windows 7 can read your zen touch, sleek or other non supported creative-Tm hardware. I havnt finished upgrading yet because I Had so much on it that its taking me over 8 hours now just to sync my music with my computer so tht I wont lose the data when upgrading to firmware 2.x.xx

First off, download the Firmware upgrade from Creative (http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx?nDriverType=4#type_4)

Don't run it just yet!

Now, go into the Zen Micro's Recovery Mode:

1. Take out the battery
2. Press and hold the ON/LOCK button in the ON position (far left) and put the battery back in the player.
3. The player will then switch on - wait until "Recovery Mode" appears on the screen then let go of the ON/LOCK button.

The Recovery Mode options include an option to "Reload Firmware".

Now connect your Zen Micro to your PC and run the Firmware upgrade. Your player should be recognized by the Firmware uploader. If it isn't, then then your player has other damage.

If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
