Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

1 Answer

Unable to download some songs.

My zen won't let me download some songs, says it clock in not in sync.  I have changed the clock, and also done all directions that it tells me to do, tried all that I know to do but still I get x's next to some of my songs with error.  My other mp3 takes those songs.  What's up and help!

Download music.Drag it into Zen file but no go

open zen folder from my computer, Make sure file is put in MP3 file or DHCM file. Manually drag it to a specific file and not just drive alone. Make sure all your drivers are downloaded. You can also create a playlist in media player and sync device and add playlist to zen from media player

Unable to sync music purchased from itunes onto zen mp3

I believe iTunes may not like to sync with not apple players, but I am sure DRM protection is to blame here. You can try to sync your music with the software provided by Zen, or a program called MediaMonkey, to see if it works.
Otherwise, if the music is DRM protected .mp4, you can always burn the songs into a standard AUDIO CD, and then rip the music back to your computer, that way it loses the DRM protection, and should be easy to sync without problems.

No license to play/sync license from PC - Zen Creative V Plus

Try putting the songs on your PC if they are not there already. Delete all the songs from your Zen, then reload them.

you should try to reload the songs
if that dosent work you hsould try to restart it.
if you unhoook the zen when you are loading the songs on that could be the problem too.

Hey Sheikhea!

You won't need to download or install any programs if you have Windows Media Player on your computer. You can use other programs but WMP is probably the easiest!

  1. Plug in your MP3 player using the USB cord (should be in box)
  2. Open WMP
  3. (If your songs are already in Library skip this step). Click "File" (top left hand corner) then "Add to Library..." Click "OK" WMP will now find all music on your computer and add it to Library.
  4. If the internet is connected WMP will attempt to find song info such as title, artist, album etc. Otherwise right click on song and click "Edit"
  5. Click on "Sync" tab (top of player). A sidebar should appear with "Creative zen.. etc" written on the top.
  6. Drag songs into sidebar.
  7. Click "Start Sync"
  8. The songs will now download onto your MP3 player.
To organise your files into folders etc. go to "My Computer" then "Creative Zen etc" then "Music" and create folders (right click "create folder") copy, paste, and drag your songs in folders as you like.

You can now unplug you MP3 player and turn it on!

Please reply so I can know if this information was helpful or not and can help you further.

Happy MP3ing!
