    I am going through the SD card menu. I am trying to load videos. At first I loaded the smaller videos for a portable device and had the above problem. Then I tried loading the full version. Now the player says they are there but says there is a problem and won't play them.

Songs on your card are not in the same location has songs on the zen itself. You need to go to the SD card menu and the songs that are on the card will be there.

File error


Hi,
It is picture file that stops file transfer function, delete that picture and continue or go to memory card through my computer > mass storage drive and delete that file or copy rest of files and past in computer some where like my documents etc.
That particular picture file DSC03270.jpg is incomplete/ corrupted and causing problem in files transfer operation. Either delete it or bypass it and transfer rest of files from camera.
After transferring files to computer, format memory card to avoid any problem in next time as option would be in camera menu.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Can't transfer files to my Zen!


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 do I transfer pictures from my computer back on to my camera? Is it possible to transfer pictures back to your camera from the computer?


This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.

1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.

2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.

3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.

4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.

5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.

6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.

7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:

A) The same filename structure;
B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files
C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).

If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.

Good luck!

good day,

you have the option of transferring musinc files to you phone memory or to your memory card. however, it is recommended that you use the memory card when storing large files like mp3s.

when transferring files from your pc to your memory card, you can use a bluetooth connection (note: you need a bluetooth donggle to do this), or via a data cable (should be included in the package when you bought the phone - just follow the instructions in the accompanying cd when installing the software). with these two options, you can now transfer your music files to your phone.

another option is by directly transferring the music files to the memory card using a card reader that is attached to your pc. your memory card will be detected as a removable drive when doing this. you can easily click and drag (or copy) your files to your memory card.

i hope this helps
