Question about Creative Labs Zen Micro MP3 Player

Dock screen locked

Hi. I was trying to us the record feature.When I clicked on the organized playlist, I realized that it was the wrong one to click on (at least I thought), but there was already a screen saying it was loading my playlist. Not wanting to have to wait for this when it wasn't going to work anyway, I pulled my Zen out of the computer. Now, the dock screen is stuck, with the usb symbol saying that it is trying to connect. I cannot connect it back to my computer, and the reset button, which I was able to reach with a pin, was not able to work. Please help.

If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
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

How to Put Songs on Disney Mix Max

The Disney Mix Max portable media player is capable of playing audio files in the MP3 format. It can also play videos formatted as WMV and display photos formatted as JPEG. You can convert audio files into MP3 using the Disney Mix Max software -- Mix It Plug-in. The plug-in works with Windows Media Player 10. This software CD came with the player and is not available online. To download music to the device, you can use Windows Media Player 10 or Windows.

Things You'll Need:

* USB cable
* Mix It Plug-In installation CD


Convert Non-MP3 Files

Install Mix It Plug-In. Insert the Mix It Plug-in installation CD into the computer's optical drive. Click "Install Mix It Plug-In" when prompted. If no screen opens, double-click on the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on the installation CD icon. Then double-click on the setup or installation file; this file is often formatted as EXE. Select to have the program saved to your desktop. Then double-click on the desktop icon -- "disneymixitplugin" to open the setup wizard. Click "Next" in the setup screen. Follow any additional setup prompts.

Open Windows Media Player 10 and create a playlist. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."

Open Mix It Plug-In. Select "Yes" when asked to save analysis information for your music files. The software will analyze each track's compatibility with the Disney Mix Max player.

Press "Go!" to start the conversion process. Once the process is complete, an inactive "Go!" will be displayed. All music that has been converted is still listed in your Windows Media Player 10 playlist. You are now ready to download music to the player using Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player 10

Open Windows Media Player 10 on your computer.

Remove the USB jack cover located on the bottom of the Disney Mix Max. Insert the compatible end of the USB cable into the USB port on the Disney Mix Max. Insert the other end of the cable into the computer's USB port.

Click "Library" and click a playlist name. To create a playlist, click "Library" and select "Now Playing." Drag songs from your computer to the "Now Playlist List" pane. Click the "Now Playing List" title to open the menu and select "Save Playlist As." In the "Save As" dialog box, enter a name for the playlist and select "Save."

Select the "Sync List" tab and choose "Sync List" from the menu.
Verify the items to be synced to the Mix Max, or right-click on a song title and select "Delete" to remove it. Click "Start Sync" to download music to the Mix Max.


Insert the USB cable to the Disney Mix Max USB jack. Connect the player to the computer with the USB cable.

Click on the desktop "Start" menu and choose "My Computer."

Double-click on the "Removable Disk" that corresponds with your connected device.

Drag songs saved on your computer with your mouse into the Removable Disk folder.

Tips & Warnings

If you converted files using the Mix It Plug-In, you will need to use Windows Media Player 10 to sync them to the player.

How to do playlist on the s100

Hi, You can do play list from your PC. By connecting your MP3 player to the PC through Usb cable..

Things You'll Need:

* Computer
* Media player
* Digital music files

Creating a playlist on your computer is an easy way to organize your music. Playlists allow you to organize music by different artists or different genres. More advanced playlists can even sort your music based on when it was added or how often you play a particular song. Creating a playlist is an easy task regardless of the media player you use to play your music.

Determine what songs you would like to add to your playlist.

Create a new playlist in your media player. Depending on your media player, this step will vary. There is usually a "Create Playlist" button that you can click to create a new playlist. In iTunes, this button is on the bottom lower left corner. In Winamp, click the "View" menu and select "Playlist Editor".

Select the songs that you want in your playlist from a new Windows Explorer window. If you are using a Macintosh computer, select the songs from a new Finder window. You can hold down CTRL to select multiple tracks. Drag and drop these selected songs into the new playlist you have just created.

Save the playlist you have just created. Most media players have a "Save Playlist" button. Other media players such as iTunes will automatically save the playlist for you when you first create it. In Winamp, click the "Manage Playlist" button in the bottom right corner. In the following context menu, click "Save Playlist". Name the playlist whatever you want and then choose where you want it to be saved.

Have a nice day....

How do you creait a playlist

You must first Rip your albums or Mix CD's to your Xbox, insert an album and click on Rip CD to save it to your Hard Drive, play an album and click on edit or save playlist below the play/stop/forward/ buttons, and get rid of songs you don't want if needed. While playing that album still, back out with the red "b" button on your controller and back up until you are back at albums, now click on it, select another album, and choose "add to current playlist" or "add to playlist" and it will now stack that album on the bottom of the first. Again you can edit and delete or organize songs, then save playlist. Now you can name it and when you go to saved playlists instead of Albums, it will be there. Anymore trouble, please email me at

I cannot figure out how to make playlists and store them on my Sony mp3 player. I have workout music and study music and I cannot figure out how to make them so I can listen to the playlists separately.

The easiest way (though tedious when you start) I found was to just sync all my music, etc. through Window Media Player, then open the Walkman in Windows Explorer. Open the music folder and create a file for the music you want on the playlist. Copy all the songs you want the select the songs in the file, right click and create a playlist. Double-click on the playlist and put them in the order you want them. Click OK. Whan you disconnect the walkman, your playlist will be there. This is the only way I have found to actually have my playlist show up in the Playlist feature on my Walkman in the order I want the songs.

I can't add tracks to any of the playlists that I've created!

Are you creating playlists with Musicmatch or are you creating them directly on the DJ?

Let's say you have a playlist on your DJ and want to add a track to it. First, play the playlist. While it is playing, go to Music Library, find the track you want to add, select it with the thumbwheel, one of your choices in the menu that comes up is "Add to Selected". Select "Add to Selected". Now when the DJ reverts back to the screen showing the track being played. Hit the thumbwheel twice. A menu comes up. Select "Save as Playlist". Name it. Then delete your previous version of the playlist. Your new version will include the track (or tracks) you added.
Okay, that answered your specific question, but let me tell you it is much easier to build and organize, and yes, edit and/or add to your playlists from musicmatch.
After loading musicmatch, up near the top is a button called playlists. On its menu, select Playlist Manager. The window that opens has buttons that will let you create new playlists or modify old ones. You can dock your dj and edit the playlists on it from here or build playlists and then Send them to Portable Device (your DJ) Fairly easy.

How to make aplaylist?

Make sure you're logged into YouTube (if you need help creating your account, please indicate). Then, while viewing a video that you'd like to have on your playlist, just click the "Playlists" link beneath the viewing area. If you haven't created and named a playlist yet, just select "New Playlist," then click OK. On the next screen, name your playlist, give it a description and a few tags if you'd like as many people as possible to be able to find it, etc. When you've selected all your options on that page, click "Save Playlist Info."
Now that you've started your playlist, you can add to it just by clicking the "Playlists" button beneath any video you're viewing. You can even create multiple playlists for different purposes or audiences. To further refine your playlist or change the name, description, etc., just click My Account, and Playlists.
Hope this helps!

Sansa m250 playlists

First you need to set your Sansa m250 mp3 player to MTP mode:

) Tap your menu button and select "Settings" > "USB".
2) On this screen, make sure that there is a check next to "Auto Detect" and NOT "MSC".

Note: Music that was transferred to the player in "MSC" (Mass Storage Class) mode will not be accessible once the player is put into MTP mode.

However, the music can still be accessed by switching the player back to MSC mode.

To transfer a playlist using Windows Media Player version 10:

- Make sure device is showing as an "audio device" and in MTP mode
- Create a playlist by right clicking a song in the library, add to>additional playlists>new or by saving a now playing list
- Select the Sync tab and click "Sync settings"
- Check "Synchronize device automatically"
- Set "View" to "All Playlists"
- Place a check next to the playlists they want to transfer to device
- Media Player should then sync those lists once you hit OK.
Once you Sync for the first time a new folder "Playlists" will appear in your m250 using Windows Explorer. Once that folder is created you can even use Windows Explorer alone to create playlists, all you have to do is right click on a song and choose create a playlist. Double click on playlist > Reference Tab, on the window you simply drag and drop your songs.

Hope this helps

Cant transfer a playlist to my sony mp3 player

Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 in XP does not create Playlist on my MP3 MTP device. I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-S544 but I think my problem and its solution could also apply to other MP3 players that don't receive Playlists from WMP. And perhaps to Vista and Windows 7?
When I connected my WALKMAN to my PC and used WMP to Sync (transfer) Playlists to it, the songs were correctly Synched but no Playlists were created on my WALKMAN. My problem was that Windows had installed the wrong driver for my WALKMAN. Here is how I diagnosed and fixed the problem.
DIAGNOSIS: When I used WMP to Sync, the picture in WMP's right hand window was a generic MP3 device. It should have looked like my WALKMAN NWZ-S544. When I looked at the device drivers, I couldn't find a driver for my WALKMAN NWZ-S544 under Portable Devices, but instead found a non-MTP Walkman listed as a USB Mass Storage Device. (See Fix explanation for how to look at device drivers.)
Fix: To fix the problem I first uninstalled the incorrect driver and then installed the correct driver. Here's how…
  1. I disconnected all MP3 players and USB devices (Key/thumb/External Hard drives, etc) from my PC.
  2. I opened the Device Manager. Right-click My Computer-Click Properties.-Click Hardware Tab-Click Device Manager. No Portable Devices were showing. Click the + to the left of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers heading and there was one USB Mass Storage Device but it was for an irrelevant memory card reader on my PC that I can't disconnect.
  3. I connected my Walkman. Looking at the Device Manager, I see that one new USB Mass Storage Device is now showing, I right click-Properties and it describes it as a Compatible USB storage device (Walkman). This is my problem. Windows is using an older Walkman driver. My Walkman driver should be for a MTP device.
  4. I again right click the Walkman USB storage device and click Uninstall. I click OK to Confirm Device Removal. The Device Manage no longer shows my Walkman which has now turned itself off.
  5. I disconnect my Walkman and then reconnect it. Windows gives me the message that I have installed new hardware. The Found New Hardware Wizard starts. I click "No, not this time" and then Next. I click "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and then Next. I click "Don't search. I will chose the driver to install." and then Next. I click "Show compatible hardware" and I select "MTP Device" under Model and then Next. Windows then finds the appropriate driver for my Walkman and I'm done.
VERIFICATION: To verify that it is properly installed, look in the Device Manager under Portable Devices (while your Walkman is connected). Click + and you should see:"Walkman NWZ-S544". Or simply look under Name in My Computer and you should see an entry for Walkman NWZ-S544, and an icon that looks like your Walkman. Everything should now work properly.
