    all the songs are in the music folder, no sub folders

  • tosdyke Dec 20, 2007

    No custom recordings, no FM recordings, and no fancy software
    used, all I use is windows explorer to drag and drop the songs
    onto the drive, no files edited on the drive after the copy. That's why
    I don't understand what the problem is... I also own a zen microphoto and zen extra jukebox and those are not having the this
    problem... just the vision M

    did you by any chance re-tag any songs (maybe add album art to the tag)?

    In Mediamonkey Sync options, under AutoSync Options you can tick the
    one 'Delete tracks that aren't on the Auto Synchronisation List from
    the device'. That should bring you track count in line.

    Did you consider any FM recordings or voice recording you may have done?

    well if your really worried about it this is the steps i would do to find the problem,
    1.format the drive, check number of songs
    2. add one song at a time, check number of songs after each song is loaded when you get to a song that was added but not counted against the number of songs in the unit you'll need to dissect it and find out whats different about it the the player doesn't like, or re- add a tag to it

While playing my zen vision m it spontaneously reboots & rebuilds

Hey, I also have this problem and I've been looking for an answer. So far I've taken it apart and made sure everything was securely connected and cleaned out a little dust. Yesterday, I also updated the firmware, which had no effect, but I'm not sure if this is a hardware problem or something else. Mine also randomly glitches randomly while playing songs, to the point where I have to reset it, and sometimes the screen goes black and nothing plays and I can't get it to turn off, so I have to reset. Please let me know if you've found an answer!

Zen will not download anymore songs

The problem more than likely lies with windows media player. Update to the latest version.
