SOURCE: zen vision m not recognized....

here, this is what I did to fix this problem. copy and paste from my original post on anythingbutipod.com

"My player is completely charged, I have XP w/SP2 - I can turn it on and listen to the default audio tracks and videos...I just can't get my computer to recognize it AT ALL!"

and then:

also, when I try to allow "everyone" to the USB....I found that in the advanced section I have TWO "everyones".

The one that says "full control" says "not inherited" in the inherited from column...the other says "read" and "machine\system\currentcontrolset......."

Should there be two of them in there??? Because when I try and switch the read to full control, it reverts back as soon as I select apply or ok....I tried deleting it but it re-creates itself soon as I go out of the window.

so I was told to do this:

Sounds like an NT problem. I don't know the exact steps to do this, but you'll need to remove inheritable permissions from that, which will remove the "inherited" attribute, leaving the locally-controllable one.


So open "run" command in the start menu and type "regedit"

From there follow this path...

"hkey_current_config" -> system -> current control set -> Enum -> USB

Do what I copy and pasted above and then plug your Zen V:M in and it should recognize it.

SOURCE: Creative Zen Xtra hard disk problem

THIS WORKED FOR ME:

32. I bought one of these and used it on and of for 4 months. One day I got a "harddisk problem" and tried everything. Because I purchased in the US, Creative said that it was out of warranty but they would fix for £100. I looked around the web and found a thread that shows how to fix it. The solution, and this is a bit technical, is - seriously - to hit it on the right hand side very firmly on the right hand side with your hand whilst switching it on. It re-indexed and I've never had a problem since.

SOURCE: Creative Firmware Upgrade Does Not Recognize Zen Micro

I had this same problem and almost threw out the Zen.

The trick to getting the Zen recognized by the firmware update software is to make sure you uninstall BOTH WMP11 as well as the WMP11 Runtime. Those two things are listed separately in Add/Remove programs.

BOTH must be uninstalled before the firmware updater will recognize your Zen.

Now I'm back to using my Zen. It's all good.

Reformatting HCS725032VLA380


Is it your primary hard drive ?
Reformat hard drive to NTFS Windows XP allows you to easily format the hard drives with its inbuilt utility. Formatting the hard drive would forever delete all the files stored on it. There are two ways in which you can format the hard disk partition - from My Computer and from DOS. You cannot have a NTFS partition with allocation unit s above 4096.

Click on "Start," and then click on "My Computer." Right-click on the disk partition to format and then click on "Format." Click on the "File System" drop down box and select "NTFS." Click on the "Allocation unit " drop down box and select an allocation . It is recommended that you select the "Default allocation " option. Click on the "Start" button. b> Format the Partition from DOS b> Click on "Start," and then click on "Run." Type "cmd" in the 'Run' dialog box and then press "Enter." Type "format drive_letter: /FS:NTFS" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Replace the 'drive_letter' here with the letter of the drive that you want to format (for example, format e: /FS:NTFS). For help on advanced formatting options, type "format/?'more" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Keep pressing "Enter" as you read on. Hope it helps

If your player stops responding, you can reset it. To reset the player, push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. This should not cause you to lose any data or audio tracks, unless you were in the middle of transferring an audio track.

To reset Zen Vision:M to factory default settings:

  1. Press on the Menu/Back button on your player, and select System, and then Reset.To Format or Clean Up Zen Vision:M Detach the Zen Vision:M player from your PC , and ensure that the unit is off.If the battery is too low, charge the battery fully before continuing
  2. Slide the Power switch towards the Power icon and hold the switch in the Power On position.
  3. Push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a straightened paper clip) into the reset hole, press gently and remove.
  4. Release the Power switch when the Creative logo appears. The Recovery Mode appears: * Clean Up (Performs a disk scan on the player's hard disk, it will not affect music files)* Format All (Formats the players hard disk - Note: all contents will be lost)* Reload Firmware (Reloads the Operating System on the Zen. Select this option ONLY if there is a firmware available to reload.)* Reboot (Reboots the device)
  5. Select Clean Up or Format from the Recovery Mode, and then select Reboot

Adding songs


DB is corrupted - reformatting will partially erase the native formatting of the player, so you may have to get the latest firmware upgrade to resolve the issue - restore key formatting elements.
