Some portable medias such as mp3's and mp4's run applications to transfer files to and from your PC.

If your using a desktop computer... connect your zen to the cpu... you should get some sort of notification of the connection.

Then, got to my computer and locate the zen as a drive. Drives are things such as your local hard disk, floppy, or DVD and is preceded by a letter such as (C:) or (A:).

The Zen should show up as a removable disk and have a preceding letter of the latest found drive.

If you want to add music and such to it... select the discovered zen drive, right-click, and select explore.

This will show all the unhidden content of your zen. Place the file(s) you want on or off the zen.
Music files should be placed according to the folder which would be labeled music... ect...


If this doesn't help please notify me of the problem... ^^ thanxx

How to restore a zen xfi2 when mistakenly formatted through computer?There are no more files on the player and an error window that reads Media is not formatted with a supported file system


a usual message for every format performed.

1. log onto the microsoft network site to acquire a digital media restore software or verify from the ZEN network site for restore software programs also.

2. once dowloaded onto a computer, connect the ZEN device with a USB cable provided should establish a transfer of software copies back into the Device.

3. A restore of the device with default ZEN software would require transfering media once more.

4. download onto a computer the a media converter software

I have a creative zen and i cant transfer audio files to it


plug your zen into pc usb. then go to start menu, find the folder containing your zen drive. You can copy and plaster or drag and drop your files into your zen here this way. If your pc is not recognizing your zen, then make sure you have the lastest updated driver for zen on your pc. This driver must be installed and up-to-date for your pc to recognize your zen

Zen v plus - won't connect


I found the solution. When I connected my device to computer, it was unknown. I tried to reinstalled the software; however, the problem was still going on. To solve it;

1. Connect your device to your computer,
2. My computer, system properties, device manager
3. Find Creative zen which has attention icon
4. Click the Zen and then delete it
5. Plug out your device, and plug it again. That's all.

Problem transferring MP3s to Zen Vision 30GB


I have a Zen Vision M 30G, and this is what worked for me.(Widows XP home Edition. First you're going to want to transfer all your files back to your PC to back them up. I've found that even though you can't transfer from your PC to Zen, you can transfer from Zen to PC. Connect your player, and after your Pc recognizes it go to My Computer>click on your player, it should show up as "storage media.">then you right click on it, then select "reformat." A warning should pop notifing that you will lose all you data. Click yes, It should take less than a minute to complete. So essentially you have just wiped your Mp3 player's hard drive clean. Now transfer all your backed up files back to your player.

Transferring music onto mp3 player


Use Creative's Media Explorer which came with the player. Click on "add media", then select which files you wnat to transfer. This applies to MP3 files but if you have loaded CD's onto the PC in their original format, you will need to convert them to MP3s.

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.

Vision M not recognized


I'm having the exact same problem. My zen is 'charging' but isn't detected anywhere on my pc and I'd leave it charging for days but nothing happens. I've tried different usb ports, reinstalling the software several times but nothing. I recently reinstalled Windows and with my new pc my Zen cannot work on it for some reason?! I put previous files from my old pc onto my Zen hoping that I could transfer them onto my new Windows pc but I fear I've lost the data on my Zen completely. Arggh, any suggestions guys? Please..x

Creative zen micro doesn't show so I can transfer




1. remove all creative software from your pc (do this from start menu/settings/control panel/add or remove programs)
2. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Player 11 runtime. This will rollback the pc to an earlier version of WMP.
3. Download the latest version of the zen driver from this location:
http://us.creative.com/support/downl...ame=Windows+XP
4. Make sure the zen is not connected to the pc and install run the exe file to install the software on your pc. at some point, the install will tell you that the unit is not connected. Connect the unit to proceed. it will also notify you that you are replacing an existing software, or something to that effect. I accepted or said OK to this popup. Once the firmware is installed, my started to work fine. You can now reinstall WMP from microsoft website. Hope this works for you.

you might want to verify that your new player has the latest firmware available, as this might address the unresponsive-button issue you're having. Firmware updates are surprisingly easy - you just download the firmware file from Creative's website, plug in your player, and double-click the downloaded file. It's that easy.

Can't transfer songs onto my mp3 player


Some types of mp3 files won't transfer to Creative Zen players. Try re-encoding the files either again in mp3 or in wma and try importing them again.

Can?t transfer files using the Creative Media Source Organizer. I?m getting the following error: ?Error: Unable to create file. Restart player and try again." Tried restarting the device, but no use....


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!
