Question about Creative Labs Zen Micro MP3 Player

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

My Zen Micro 8gb freezes while attempting to transfer mp3 files (all of which worked fine on my 6gb micro). Am using latest 2.21.02 plays4sure micro firmware.
Symptom: Both MediaSource Organiser v5.10.38 and WMP11 (on Vista 32bit) hang while transferring mp3's - no obvious mp3 culprits as some tracks transfer with WMP but error with MSO and vice-versa.
Have tried with and without using Sync manager

JB3MV2 Driver version is US 2.01.00
Unicode Sync Manager 6.2.10 (installed via plugin CMS5_LB5.00.36)

Your help/advice would be most appreciated :)

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.

Can't transfer files to my Zen!


Some portable medias such as mp3's and mp4's run applications to transfer files to and from your PC.

If your using a desktop computer... connect your zen to the cpu... you should get some sort of notification of the connection.

Then, got to my computer and locate the zen as a drive. Drives are things such as your local hard disk, floppy, or DVD and is preceded by a letter such as (C:) or (A:).

The Zen should show up as a removable disk and have a preceding letter of the latest found drive.

If you want to add music and such to it... select the discovered zen drive, right-click, and select explore.

This will show all the unhidden content of your zen. Place the file(s) you want on or off the zen.
Music files should be placed according to the folder which would be labeled music... ect...


If this doesn't help please notify me of the problem... ^^ thanxx

Mp3 file transfer to zen micro?!


Visit Creative Support and navigate to your mp3 player. Next download the driver for this player. Then all you need to do to transfer mp3 files is connect your player (while it's on) to your PC, open up Windows Media Player, go to the sync tab, drag the files you want on your player into the sync list on the right side of the screen and slick start sync.

Problem transferring MP3s to Zen Vision 30GB


I have a Zen Vision M 30G, and this is what worked for me.(Widows XP home Edition. First you're going to want to transfer all your files back to your PC to back them up. I've found that even though you can't transfer from your PC to Zen, you can transfer from Zen to PC. Connect your player, and after your Pc recognizes it go to My Computer>click on your player, it should show up as "storage media.">then you right click on it, then select "reformat." A warning should pop notifing that you will lose all you data. Click yes, It should take less than a minute to complete. So essentially you have just wiped your Mp3 player's hard drive clean. Now transfer all your backed up files back to your player.

Creative zen micro doesn't show so I can transfer




1. remove all creative software from your pc (do this from start menu/settings/control panel/add or remove programs)
2. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Player 11 runtime. This will rollback the pc to an earlier version of WMP.
3. Download the latest version of the zen driver from this location:
http://us.creative.com/support/downl...ame=Windows+XP
4. Make sure the zen is not connected to the pc and install run the exe file to install the software on your pc. at some point, the install will tell you that the unit is not connected. Connect the unit to proceed. it will also notify you that you are replacing an existing software, or something to that effect. I accepted or said OK to this popup. Once the firmware is installed, my started to work fine. You can now reinstall WMP from microsoft website. Hope this works for you.

you might want to verify that your new player has the latest firmware available, as this might address the unresponsive-button issue you're having. Firmware updates are surprisingly easy - you just download the firmware file from Creative's website, plug in your player, and double-click the downloaded file. It's that easy.

Zen Vision M freezing during music upload.


Try to add your music a bit at a time instead of your whole library at once. That will freeze it. You can also try sync with Window's Media Player, which works a lot better than the Creative software.
