Re: zen vision m

Connection Problems:
· Make sure you have media player 11
· If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
· Download recovery tool off creative's website.
· go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

· Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix
If that doesn't fix it try the USB cable

Lost my zen vision m installation cd

You can download the software for the Zen Vision:M at:

The software found there is newer than on the cd, you
should be able to make a new cd with the newer software,
this is cheaper than ordering a new cd from creative.

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.

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.

See if the Operating System on the computer matches

Get down on the support page and make a Manual Selection in the
second bar XP, Vista or whatever you are using and click SUBMIT.
The available downloads will change now. Next get the matching software for your PC.
Also check the system requirements by opening "Show Details"
in the suitable software.

Either try changing the "Auto-Load" function - preventing creative from taking charge of it OR your windows needs update to support the device as a flash drive.
