    The firmware doesnt launch and my pc doesnt seem to see the files on the player. However my pc does notice that a device is connected.
    Also what I have is the Nomad jukebox 3 40gig player. The picture above is not the actual one I have. I have to model that a bigger.

    Do I need to remove the hard drive from the device? If so How do I do this?
    I do have a 40 pin to usb adapter cord. Will this hook up to the hard drive when I remove it.

    I will see what I can find out.
    I am thinking one would find out what type drive it has, and if we can interface it ( maybe in another Nomad?)

    Got another angle.
    The hard drive is a laptop one.
    This has a good and bad side.

    The Bad: Now I see why they don't reccomend it for jogging, a laptop drive does not like vibration ( or drops ).

    The Good: If you can get hold of an external drive enclosure for a laptop drive, you can put your hard drive in it and USB it to your PC.
    If the data is worth it, there are many companies that can recover the data from damaged laptop drives.

    Sorry I can't give you an easy/cheap solution, but that is the nature of damaged drive problems.

    Yes, you will need to remove it to get a direct link to it.
    Despite some hours of searching, I have not yet been able to find specific instructions on opening it up.
    Having never had one in my hands doesn't help!
    I will post more when I find out.

Hi J...welllll....I dunno what kinda internal damage your player may have suffered, but let's try a couple of exercises and see if we achieve success. 1) Have you tried resetting your player? To reset your player, insert the end of a paperclip into the Reset Hole. Under normal circumstances, resetting your player will not cause any data/file loss. 2) Click on the URL below, and download the latest appropriate software for your OS, also download the latest firmware for your player. My intention here, is to attempt to sync your player with your computer, which will allow you to control your player via your pc, and ultimately enable you to transfer your files from player to pc. However, success using this theory is relying on a simple loss of your Firmware/BIOS information contained in the EPROM from the jolt. http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/download.asp?MainCategory=213&nRegionFK=&nCountryFK=&nLanguageFK=&sOSName=Windows+XP®ion=1&Product_Name=NOMAD+Jukebox+3&Product_ID=296&modelnumber=&driverlang=1033&OS=10&drivertype=0&x=33&y=12 Please update your post with specifics on any failures or progress....meanwhile...I'll toss your dilema around in my head until I learn of your status......good luck my friend

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!

Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra Display Failure


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

Loss of music library


Uninstall everything from your PC, reboot, reinstall driver and the Explorer (I do not use MediaSource, only the Explorer).

If it didn't work out follow these steps:

1. Uninstall Creative Media Source and all related software.
2. Install the driver. In the installation CD the driver is usually in \Drivers\English
3. Turn on the Nomad an connect it to the PC.
4. Install MediaSource(the program requires that you have the nomad connected while installing)
5. Install MediaSource plugin
6. Try transferring files.

If you?re still running into problem know that there are other programs capable of handling MediaSource?s functions, such as - Portable Audio Devices Power Toy , NomadSync, Real player, and there?s also a Zen plugin for the Winamp.

Good luck!

Update software complatible with windows vista


Ever since vista dropped alot of support files for simple thing like Creative's older model Mp3 Players, try going to creatives website, and look in the support section for a driver update for VIsta.
