Question about Creative Labs Creative Technology Zen MP3 Player

Open Question

Creative Centrale does not update with new mp3-files stored. I can see the files are on disk, but CC does not update its directory. Correct 'watch folders' is set. Automatic update when change in watched directories is checked. A USB-harddisk with permanent drive letter is used when storing the mp3-files. It worked when the main disk drive was used (C:). And old stuff on the new USB-harddisk is found by CC (old directory on C: is deleted). Newest version of Creative Centrale is used. (Does not directly relate to my Zen Mosaic as the problem is there without the mp3-player connected.) Any good ideas?

It's so easy. Little CD has to bee added in your Mosaic pack. Install Creative Centrale,  select files and transfer to your Mosaic. It's and easier way - just go to My Computer > Zen Mosaic and drom music (in Music folder), pictures. In Mosaic in the start is some videos (4), i think, one song, and a lot of photos. :)

SOURCE: I/O error in creative zen mp3

Hi! I think you should try this (i've already tried it and it works):
1- Unplug your Zen from your Computer.
2-Turn off your Zen (if you can't do it, press the "Reboot" button)
3- BEFORE turning on your Zen, press your "Play" button and hold it while you turn on.
4-When a format menu appears, select the "Format All" option (you'll loose all your Zen data).
5-When the format menu reapears, select the "Reboot" option and listo! You have your Zen as new and should not have problem. Good luck!

This happened to me too! I found a very helpful thread online http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38949 If the advice I'm about to give doesn't work, visit that link. I am running Windows Vista. I went to Control Panel>System and Maintainence>Device Manager>View hardware and devices>Portable Devices. When I did this I saw Creative Zen Mosaic listen with an !. I right clicked, uninstalled, and unplugged my Mosaic. I then plugged it back in and my computer automatically started in re-install. You may have to do it manually by clicking on a baloon that pops up when new device is inserted or something of that nature but this is what worked for me.

I have no cd for creative centrale how to copy audio files into my mp3 player


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

I plugged in my creative zen mozaic to transfer


You can use creative centrale, but I personally wouldn't suggest it. It is overcomplicated. Whenever I transfer music I usually just use Sync on Windows Media Player.

My zen mosaic is not downloading songs


You may be looking at the library on your computer. In Centrale with the player connected, double click on the Mosaic player icon at the bottom of the list on the left of the screen. This brings up a contents list identical to that above(which is for the PC not the player)

Instruction for zen mosaic by creative


The Zen Mosaic wants videos in a wierd format (CMV) so you have to do it via Creative Centrale.

I also had a problem briefly when CC would not open. It worked when I installed the software direct from the player but somewhere in the process of upgrading the software to the latest version on the Creative website it stopped working. I would click on the icon and nothing would happen. I cannot remember what I did to make it work again. I suspect I uninstalled it and did it again from scratch.

Cannot put videos


Did you use the software it came with? I used Creative Centrale and it worked fine. Thats the software my player came with.

Instruction for zen mosaic by creative


I think alot of people are having the same problem I was. We got home, opened the box, plugged it in the computer, and nothing useful happened so then we installed the mini-cd. Well the thing is windows stops looking for a driver once it searches and finds nothing, and unfortunately those of us using XP do not automatically have the drivers. So...

SOLUTION
------------------
-If you have not already installed the mini-cd, do so, or download from Creative's site in the support section(if you do you might want to grab the latest firmware update)
-Once pack has been installed the drivers have been as well, BUT as I mentioned we now have to tell windows to look for them again.
-Reconnect your Mosaic
-Right click "My Computer"
-Chose "Properties"
-Click the "Hardware" tab
-Click "Device Manager"
-A window will pop up and you will see a long list with (hopefully only) one thing under the "Other Devices" sublist. It should be something along the lines of "Creative Zen Mosaic". Right click it
-Chose "Update Drivers"
-Follow prompts agreeing to search and auto install
-Once install is done, in a moment the screen on your Mosaic will say "Docked"
-Congratulations!
If you have downloaded the updated firmware this is the time to install:
-Ensure your Mosaic is in "Docked" mode
-Execute the firmware update
-Click "Upgrade"
-Wait (it takes a moment or two)
-Updater will say it is complete
-Mosaic will reboot
-Click "Close"
-Congratulations!

Hope that helps.
