Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player

1 Answer

Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra 30gb

Hi. While loading some music from my pc to the Zen the Zen's battery went flat (my fault obviously) and now it only shows a small fraction of the music that used to be on it (it was pretty full). Although the Creative software still shows it as only having around 2800mb free, the artists / album listings are greatly reduced. I figured that resetting it and letting it rebuild the library would solve the problem but it only attempts to rebuild the library for a short while before stopping and reverting to the main menu, and the situation remains unchanged.
Any ideas? Thanks.

    I had the same thing happen to mine, most the songs are gone... I'm sure it's a firmware problem,but I can't upgrade because my computer won't work with it anymore.

I suspect you got a corrupt file when it shutdown and when it cleaned it up it took most of the songs with it.

ZEN X-Fi 8GB won't turn on.

I have an older model, and I can't be sure but see if there is a small hole on it somewhere. That is a reset button. Usually a paperclip, bent straight, will fit in the hole. Pressing this button in should reset the player. It should then re-index all your music.

My Creative Zen seems to have frozen up on me.

Use a paperclip to push the reset button throught a small hole on the bottom of the Zen. If the battery is dead, you may need to plug it in for a minute and then push the reset button while it's charging.

I have a zen player but not sure how it works and how to get power to it

Hi Jthibs64,

Well firstly you'll probably need to plug it in to the charger. You should probably charge it fully for a good 8 or 10 hours. Then to turn it on hold down the play-pause button at the top of the player. (Picture of triangle and lines).

Obviously until you've loaded music onto it, there will be nothing to listen to. If you'd like me to tell you how to load music onto it I can tell you.

Please reply so I can know whether this was helpful or not, and can help you further.

From Kat.

try downloading the MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.
