Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player
My creative zen vision m is not recognized on my pc
Here, this is what I did to fix this problem. copy and paste from my original post on anythingbutipod.com
"My player is completely charged, I have XP w/SP2 - I can turn it on and listen to the default audio tracks and videos...I just can't get my computer to recognize it AT ALL!"
also, when I try to allow "everyone" to the USB....I found that in the advanced section I have TWO "everyones".
The one that says "full control" says "not inherited" in the inherited from column...the other says "read" and "machine\system\currentcontrolset......."
Should there be two of them in there??? Because when I try and switch the read to full control, it reverts back as soon as I select apply or ok....I tried deleting it but it re-creates itself soon as I go out of the window.
so I was told to do this:
Sounds like an NT problem. I don't know the exact steps to do this, but you'll need to remove inheritable permissions from that, which will remove the "inherited" attribute, leaving the locally-controllable one.
So open "run" command in the start menu and type "regedit"
From there follow this path...
"hkey_current_config" -> system -> current control set -> Enum -> USB
Do what I copy and pasted above and then plug your Zen V:M in and it should recognize it.

Same problem. Solved by downgrading Windows Media Player to v.10. Do it through Control Panel and click Remove WMP11 and WMP11 runtime. Restart, connect your player and if not recognized do go to Control Panel=>System=>Hardware tab=>Devices. Find Portable Devices drivers in the menu and click Uninstall MTP device. If still not detected, go to Control Panel=>Detect New Hardware and run that. The player should connect automatically. WMP 11 has a glitch that disallows 3rd party MTP players. Intentional or purposeful? Ask B. Gates.

I've had this happen before. My issue was a hardware interface. Did your computer shut down or give any sign of error?
Try checking the "device manager" and see if anything is up. You may want to go into your bios and make sure your "plug and play" options are still turned on. I'd try reinstalling the driver if you keep having problems.
