Creative nomad zen- wont turn. Power light on continuosuly

Hi
It started with issues with my dell laptop with vista. When I loaded the cd to use my mp3 player (20g hdd) I had to register.. then had issues with the creative product registration loop that asked me to plug the device..which i did... the loop did not go away (required another fix). However, when I disconnected the mp3 player from laptop and turned the mp3 player and turned it off I thought all was normal. BUT... now the power button with light is on continuously and when I press the button to turn the mp3 on ..it wont turn on. It is a few years old but it is very good and I dont want to lose it. Please help.

Here is a link to the Creative Mediasource software for the Zen Nomad http://support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=8183

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click agree. This will start the download. Then run the program on your computer and you should be able to manage your Zen with this software. Let me know if it works.

Loss of music library


Uninstall everything from your PC, reboot, reinstall driver and the Explorer (I do not use MediaSource, only the Explorer).

If it didn't work out follow these steps:

1. Uninstall Creative Media Source and all related software.
2. Install the driver. In the installation CD the driver is usually in \Drivers\English
3. Turn on the Nomad an connect it to the PC.
4. Install MediaSource(the program requires that you have the nomad connected while installing)
5. Install MediaSource plugin
6. Try transferring files.

If you?re still running into problem know that there are other programs capable of handling MediaSource?s functions, such as - Portable Audio Devices Power Toy , NomadSync, Real player, and there?s also a Zen plugin for the Winamp.

Good luck!

Creative zen


After three months of trying and trying in many computers, following many, many procedures found all over the Internet, my Creative Nomad has accepted the firmware and has borned again.
What I did?
1. Connected the Nomad on a computer with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 9, that never has been touched by a creaive device.
It recognizes the device but can´t find any update to the drivers,
2. Updated Windows Media Player 9 to Windows Media Player 10,
3. Restart the computer
4. Connect the Nomad and the computer recognizes the device and autamtically search and found updated MPT drivers.
5. Run the firmware update program "ZenXtraP4SAudible_PCFW_LB_2_10_03 (Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03)"
6. Finally the magic button always has been disabled was enabled so start reloading firmware.
And now the Nomad is working in windows vista.

The difference between the computer where the firmware works and the others is that this has never had media player 10 or 11 and never has installed creative drivers.
Hope this can be useful to smoeone, somewhere, sometime.....

Update software complatible with windows vista


Ever since vista dropped alot of support files for simple thing like Creative's older model Mp3 Players, try going to creatives website, and look in the support section for a driver update for VIsta.

Updated Drivers


You need to go to Creative USA Support and download

Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03. This firmware upgrade has to be done on an XP computer but if you follow the directions, Vista will then allow the installation of the Creative Organizer software which will then allow you to backup the files of the Zen and transfer them to the Zune. I just did this yesterday for my brother-in-law, though I did it all on XP and haven't tried to finish the install on Vista.
