Zen Vision:M videos out of sync..EVERYTIME!

Hi guys and girls. I'm kind of getting sick of having all of the videos (avi format) being out of sync when i try to watch em on my tv (zen connected to my tv). Sometimes it's slightly outta sync(still annoying though), and sometimes it's WAY outta sync. Anyone have a solution for this problem. Thanks in advance

Re: Zen Vision:M videos out of sync..EVERYTIME!

ZVM cannot handle the AC3 audio so the AVI files need to have mp3 audio. I have a lot of videos that I have converted over the years that I want to play on the ZVM. In order to check compatibility I have been using gspot. I just open the program, drag and drop the file, and get all the details I need in about 5 seconds.

My Coby mp601 8gb won't play the converted mtv videos, says "format not recognized", what's up with that???

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

Creative Zen Vision: M won't read some .avi files

avi is a container format, they are always different from codecs. obviously, the codec of your avi files can be supported by zen.
check the manual, and change your codec

My zen mozaic won't support any video files i put on it. what files does it take?

well, creative zen likes avi, mpg and wmv formats

the reason that your creative zen won't read the avi is because the necessary codec is missed.

you can use iorgsoft creative zen video converter to convert the video to mp4,wmv then put them to creative zen.

if you want to put DVD onto creative Zen, fine, you can use iOrgsoft DVD to Creative Zen converter to remove the DRM(Digital Right Management) and regional restriaction from DVD, and you can also use it to convert DVD to avi, wmv or mpg for playback on creative zen.

Creative zen m vision

Hi Gabrielgrima.
This problem is because of the format of the Video File.
If you want to put videos on your Creative Zen Microphoto.
You will first have to convert it using Video Converter and you will have to get it into the correct file type that your MP3 Player Supports
Hope this helped.

Sounds like you got a faulty HD. You can replace it yourself by following instructions on the I-net or have someone else do it for you if your Zen is out of warranty.

Unable to add avi files to to media library


you won't be able to sync the avi file because your type of avi is not supported in the Zen

if you have the creative software on your computer well go
into the menu and select creative, because I don't have it in front of me I can't tell you where this is though all you have to do is search through and look to find "video converter" it's as easy as that.
all you do is when you find this is browse for you file and say what format you want to format to and start formating. they will ask if you want to sync you finished file to your zen.
