Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

Frequent Crashes My Zen Vision has suddenly become very... broken. When I turn it on, and play a song, any knock or flexing of the player cause it to crash. It just crashes at any opportunity, and even when I'm not touching it, I cannot get all the way through a song.

Re: Frequent Crashes

The most possible cause is either a cracked PCB or a flex cable that has come loose. Another scenario is possible bad memory. All of which are very teadious in repairing as the cosmetics of this unit are very fragile.

I would access the recovery menu on your Vision:M, and run a clean up. This won't erase anything, and this usually will fix it.
To access the recovery console on your Vision:M:
Disconnect the player from your PC, and make sure the battery is not low, if the battery is low, you're going to need to recharge it first.
Next, Slide the Power switch towards the Power icon and hold the switch in the Power On position.
Next, Push a straightened paper clip into the reset hole, press gently and remove (all while holding the switch in the Power on position). The recovery menu should now come up, again run a clean up first, as this usually resolves issues without deleting your files.

It won't transfer my zen vision M songs from my computer

I've been able to solve the problem I had with transferring files to my Zen Vision M.

I uninstalled all components of Media Source 5 and Zen Vision M Series Explorer on my PC. I then reinstalled them again. I also rolled back to Windows Media 10 (as I recently upgraded to v 11) and unchecked Sync with Zen Vision M in tools/options/devices on WM player. I then run the Clean up in recovery mode on the Zen. When the PC restarts after the installation of the software it will ask for you to connect the player. The PC should now successfully transfer files to the player.

Hope it works for you too.
