Creative zen says Playback error

I had the same problem: "Playback error", and nothing i did, helped. But when i pushed the reset buttom, below the on/of button, it turned of, and when i switched it on again, it worked. Maybe you could try again?

Otherwise I say this on YouTube, but thought it was a little drastic ;-)" />

Downloaded music to 60g zen xtra

Hi there

I would suggest that you have a look at the file format, i.e .mp3 .wma and then make sure that you mp3 player supports that file format because if the mp3 player only supports mp3's then it will not play .wma. Please remember to give me a good rating.

Kind regards

"playback error"

Try replacing the songs, like, putting them on again. I don't know 100% if it will work but mine had the same problem and this worked.
