SOURCE: zen xtra broken forward button

You will need to take it apart to examine the extent of the damage. The button is attached to the motherboard. Find the correct button, and see if the button has been pulled off along with its pad. If the pad has been detached from the motherboard, you'll have to replace the entire motherboard.

If you don't have any idea what this means, you can find a technician to do it for you. Just scroll down on this page to the Repair Service box, put in your zip code, and you'll see some services to choose from.

Sansa MP3 player.

There are only two things I can think that would cause this:
(1) The players file allocation table has been corrupted. The solution to this is refomat the drive and reupload the music.
(2) That the software that you are using has changed the format. This happened when I installed ITunes. It converted the music all to another format. If this is the case, copy the other player back to your drive and then upload the music back from that player.

Try all 4, one at a time until you get the one that works.

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!

My Creative Nomad Jukebox III will not start. At best, I can get to the EAX screen: this is accompanied by some whirring and clicking (HDD activity?) and then it freezes. On one occasion, it got past this...

I had a failed JB III that acted the same way. I thought it was the hard drive, but turns out it was the motherboard in the player. I bought a used one on EBAY, then transferred my old HDD to the new one (the JB III uses a standard notebook hard drive).

If you're not worried about losing your songs, you can remove the HDD, get a PATA-to-USB external HDD adapter (less than $10 on sale), and reformat the drive, and test the drive to make sure it's sound. If it is, then you have a new portable hard drive. Unfortunately, your JB III is now an empty shell.

This article explains how to perform the "operation" on the internal hard drive: LINK

Everytime I plug my Sansa e250 in it freezes

You can press and hold the power/menu button for 20 seconds. This will force the player to shut off. Restart it, if you are still having problems, try the following. Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

Nomad Jukebox3 doesn't achieve connectivity with computer

You should plug it in and see if it is detected under the device manager. Click the start button, then right-click on My Computer, and select Manage. If not detected, something is likely wrong with the device. However, you should still install the software directly from the Creative website. You need to install the following: Creative Organizer Creative Explorer If everything fails, you should take it to a technician to have it repaired. You can scroll down on this page to a box where it says Repair Service. Just put in your zip code to find repair services nearest you.

Jukebox Zen Xtra 40 gig

You probably have Winders Media Player 11. If you can find another computer that has WMP 10, you can use that computer to do the firmware upgrade, then go back to the original computer. Thingsa should work fine. Otherwise, you need to unistall WMP 11 and WMP11 runtime. Another case of Billy messing us up. And don't even get me started about vista....
