Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

Simple instructions on how to transfer podcast to creatinve zen mp3 player.

I am not very computer /gadget literate. I managed to somehow transer some podcasts and just about everything else on my computer onto my mp3 player. Infact all I wish to do is to regularly put podcasts on from i tunes or the rss feed and to upload books. Is there a simple way of doing this also are there simple instructions out there. The creative online instructions are too complicated in that you get one tiny topic on view at a time and if yu don't know what the jargon means you cannot see a whole overview at once to get an idea if you are looking at the correct thing
it a creative zen 8gb (doesn't say micro photo on the box)

The CD that comes with the Zen installs the ZEN Media Explorer. If you are using Windows you go to My Computer then select ZEN Media Explorer. There you click on "Add
iTunes Media" and select the podcast from the available podcasts in iTunes.

I got a CD-RW and i wanted to transfer the music automatically to my mp3, but when i tuned them into MP3Format it didn't transfer because it was write-protected. Somehow that has affected my mp3 and...

Try transferring directly from the disc and don't use the 'automatic' transfer that a computer sets up for you. the computer has to follow all the rules and regulations, but if it's for personal use, go to the My computer and select the CD drive, open files and copy/paste to where you want them.

  1. try a reset: Insert a paperclip into the reset hole at the bottom of the Vision
  2. Or, try running off mains power, not battery (in case you have a dead battery)
  3. If you're able to get in to the system, try going into Recovery Mode
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Zen Micro 8gb freezes during transfers -6gb model works fine!

Now convinced this is bad boot sector on the HD and searching for a repair utility (the inbuilt zen reformat option doesn't sort it) or have to replace HD with new one.

Zen v plus - won't connect

I found the solution. When I connected my device to computer, it was unknown. I tried to reinstalled the software; however, the problem was still going on. To solve it;

1. Connect your device to your computer,
2. My computer, system properties, device manager
3. Find Creative zen which has attention icon
4. Click the Zen and then delete it
5. Plug out your device, and plug it again. That's all.

Carbon Pearl: Invalid Argument

Try accessing the rio's hard drive through my computer to see if it can find the songs: they will be in a folder aptly called music within your rio carbon.

If this doesn't help then if it is picked up via my computer you could try wiping and rebooting your rio, read:

You may have to change the firmware for the rio carbon pearl but this is easy to find on their website.

Hope this helps,

Creative zen v plus

i had the same problem but solved it, it seems that the usb driver does not always install with the software installation so you must install using the DEVICE MANAGER make sure first your mp3 player is connected, so ( copy & paste) your software to desktop, then go to CONTROL PANEL, then SYSTEM, then HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER, in device manager you should see ( zen v plus ) with a yellow question mark above it, which means the drivers are missing, click onto that and follow instructions to install the drivers which you will find in the software you have pasted to desktop. good luck, tony spain
