Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Everything I take very good care of my Zen Vision:M so it was quite a surprise when, after using it glitch-free for a long time, it decided to just completely shut down. One day, I plugged it in to sync it with my library when it said that it wasn't recognized. My player promptly shut off. I tried everything (turning it back on, plugging it in to the charger, using a different USB cable, pressing the reset button) but I cannot get ANY response out of it (doesn't turn on/reset/not recognized on computer/no blue light/NOTHING!) I have noticed though, that the sync adapter is harder to plug in and unplug - it seems sticky. Help!

    I have the same probelm. I didn't use my Zen Vision M for awhile, but it didn't have any problems when i did use it. When i tried to turn it on it wouldn't turn on, I tried to charge it by plugging it into my computer, but it won't charge.

How do I download a DVD I own onto my Creative Zen Vision: M? I have tried several times without success.


There are many products that can convert video into the proper format and some can be easy to use. The best free software I have found is AutoGK.

http://www.autogk.me.uk/modules.php?name=Downloads

There are presets available using the interface, and it can be a bit complicated when you are viewing the raw VOB files on the DVD, but for free quality its my favorite.

For purchasable software I recommend Cucusoft Ultimate DVD + Converter Suite, Its easy to use and does a great job.

You can manually drop your properly coded videos into your Creative Zen Vision M video folder by opening/browsing your zen with windows explorer. Specifications for what video format you need can be found here.

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 vision m not recognized


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.

C cover art does not transfer to my zen vision m, only the music tracks transfer


A few possibilities. Go to http://193.95.171.83/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=224,E=0000000000373151655,K=1742,Sxi=15,Case=obj(8179),Kb=ww_english_add,VARSET=ws:http://us.creative.com/

for more details

Creative ZEN players do not currently support album art from Rhapsody version 4.0.
Album art is either embedded in a track, or exists as a thumbnail image in a separate file, allowing one album art file to be associated with an album. Currently, Rhapsody only supports album art embedded in the track. Future versions of Rhapsody are expected to support thumbnail versions.
Creative Media Explorer or Windows Media Player 10 or 11 can be used to transfer music purchased from Rhapsody to a player with album art included.

Album Art is supported by Creative ZEN, Creative ZEN V Plus, ZEN V, Vision:M and ZEN Vision players.
The ZEN Vision (PF1150) requires a firmware update for Album Art. You can download the updated firmware:
If you experience any difficulty transferring Album Art with Windows Media Player 10 or 11, to ZEN Vision:M, delete WMPInfo.xml (see below), and then transfer the tracks again.
