Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

I cant' read a WAV file with the Zen V plus I

I cant' read a WAV file with the used "Zen V plus" I just bought.
MP3 and WMA seems OK, but with a WAV file, I always get a "read error" message. The support of Wav format is in the Zen V specs. I used the Creative Media Explorer to transfer the files, regular WAV files (44100Hz 16 bit). I need to read WAV files.
Who can help ?

Im trying to convert a QCP file to an MP3 file. I have a conversion program but it seems to be damaging the file, not full play time of the song/file and bad quality. how can I make this work?


Rename the file to .WAV (change the .QCP extension to .WAV) then you can either play the WAV file itself OR convert the WAV file (for free) with CDex.

After some songs are copied, they can't be played in my mp4 player . Why is that so?


The Zen NEEON can only play MP3, WMA, and WAV files. If you put a song on it that is a different format it will not play.

    I need help in downloading music to my MP3 player. I have a Creative Zen Vplus


    Hi
    According to Creative Labs, you should either be using the Creative Media Explorer if you are new to MP3 and WMA ripping and want to build up a library or prefer to manage your Zen player as a removable disk drive, or using the Creative MediaSource Player/Organizer if you "frequently need to playback or organize music in your computer".
    The Zen player can handle three primary types of audio files too, the common MP3 format, WMA format and the more unusual WAV format. It's quite likely that your existing audio files are in one of these formats, probably WMA if you've been using Windows Media Player to rip your CDs. If you've purchased your music, it'll be in WMA DRM, that is, a version of the WMA format that includes digital rights management (so you can't just email a copy of the audio file to your pals once you've purchased and downloaded it). Those can play on the Creative Zen too, fortunately.
    To actually hook up your Creative Zen MP3 player to your computer, you'll need the included USB cable, which should connect as shown in this spiffo Creative illustration:
    http://www.askdavetaylor.com/0-blog-pics/creative-zen-audio-usb.png (chek the above figure)
    Once you've hooked it up, the Zen unit should automatically go into USB connection mode (wouldn't be very zen-like if it didn't!) and then you should be able to find the device by opening up My Computer on your desktop.
    When you really dig into the Zen user's guides, you'll find that they recommend Creative Media Explorer for transfering audio files: just click on the "Import Media" button in the application, find the MP3, WAV or WMA files already on your computer, and it should be easy to then copy them onto the player.
    That should get you going.

    Thanks for contacting fixya.com

    Will not accept more songs or convert from wma to mp3


    Have you tried backing up all the songs and re-formatting the player? This sounds like it could be a filesystem problem...

    Or you could check for a firmware upgrade. That's what fixed mine when it wouldn't play mp3s; a new firmware might have a bugfix for your problem. Firmware is available at:

    Intructions for recording Mic or Line In and SAVING to PC


    Hi

    Recording is quite easy:

    1. To record from the Mic, simply press the button on the side of the player with the red dot and speak into the mic - its the small hole at the top left of the player.

    2. To record line-in: connect the small mini stereo jack to the player and the other end to the line or headphone output of a recording device. Use the menu to find 'line in recording' (its towards the bottom of the menu). Monitor the input signal and adjust its level using the VU meters on the V Plus. Using the volume control on your player device, ensure that the signal is not too loud so that it clips, nor too soft (it will be noisy). When ready, press the red dot button. Press it again to stop recording.

    3. To find the recordings and transfer files to PC: using the Zen Explorer, find the folder 'Recordings' on the Zen. Your recordings will be stored there with file names such as "Line In {date, time}.wma". Simply copy and paste these files onto your PC and play them with Winamp or Windows Media Player. Note that they are in WMA format, not MP3 format, but that this is a better standard than MP3 and can be played on most MP3 players.

    Hope this has helped, and now can someone help me - my Zen V Plus screen is dead, and I didnt' even drop it.

    I bought my daughter a sansa shake for christmas and it wont sync on any computer?


    i wouldnt use sync feature for the shaker read the following:
    check the file types from you music the shaker only plays MP3 and PCM WAV  file types. You may have WMA (if u used windows media player) which will not play on the shaker  (i had this same ploblem btw) you can easly find free music file converter software to change these files to mp3 or wav types (which i did), or you could rerip to songs from a cd and tell the windows media player to rip the files as mp3 types instead of the default wma format  from the windows media player widow :
    tools >> options >> Rip Music >> under format select mp3 (theres a wav option but i used the mp3 option to be safe) 
    do not use the sync feature it will automatically convert your files to to wma (why? i dont know) instead copy the files directly from the folder that contains them :
    right click the file you need to put on the player select open file location drag and drop to the player (or copy/paste if you want).
    hope this helped =P
