Re: no cd drive
Check in control panel under system, device manager if it picks your device up if not it could be that its power cable is un plugged or its IDE cable is un plugged or it is conflicting with your hardrive, then you need to change the jumper behind the drive so that its not the same as your harddrive eg , hardrive slave and cd drive master etc.still not working then check if the drive is installed eg. check its driver.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track.

Hello, to Rip a CD to your computer means to convert the audio on the CD into a format that your computer can play, such as mp3 or wma. Windows media player can rip CDs to both formats and stores them in your music folder. Just insert your CD and the option to rip should pop up.
To Burn a CD means the reverse, to transfer music files from your computer to a CD. Media player does this a well, just click the Burn tab to begin.
Thanks for asking, and using FixYa
Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.
When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.
If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

You don't need Creative's software to load music to your MP3 player Use FreeRip to rip your CD's and use Windows explorer to transfer your ripped music (use copy & paste functions) onto the Storage Media/Music folder in your X-Fi.
I have Windows XP SP3 and installed Creative Centrale without problems.
I can RIP music from CD's using the program but I find the program freezes up after ripping a few CD's - I think that the errors are linked with the database program loading the CD data.
If you're using Windows, then use Windows Media player to rip your music into WMA. If you don't want to do that, use CDdex to rip your music from CD to MP3. The problem probably lies in whatever program your using to rip your music. To your player. http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/
