I need to download music and there is no file for


Hello,

Using XP, the player should be detected through the USB port of the computer as a removable disk [also called MSC device].
note:
Before disconnecting the player, always go through the icon "Safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen, to keep the player free from data loss or data faillure.

----------
First prepare the player before connection / check normal working of the player:
0. Player NOT connected to the computer
1. Switch the player ON using the >| button
2. Check the HOLD icon in the display: padlock should be OFF
3. When the padlock shows up, unlock the player: slide the HOLD switch to the left: padlock should not show in the display now.
4. Switch the player OFF, holding the >| for about 3 seconds.

When the player should not behave normal, perform a RESET.
0. Disconnect the player if connected to a computer.
1. Remove the battery from the player and leave it out for 10 seconds.
2. Replace the battery.
3. Power ON the player with the >| button and see if the player works normally.
4. Switch OFF the player, holding the >| button for 3 seconds.
----------

How to check the detection of the MSC device on your computer:
0. Player Normal Functioning, NOT connected, NOT locked and switched OFF.
1. Explore 'My Computer': click start in the left corner below of the computer screen and select 'My Computer'.
2. Connect the MP300 to a USB port; detection may take some time.
3. Look on the computer screen if a new removable disk shows up in the explorer overview, coming up with a new drive letter.
4. Now you should be able to put music onto the player, showing up as a removable disk with the new drive letter: use 'copy and paste' or 'drag and drop' method for music transfers.
note:
Before disconnecting the player, always go through the icon "Safely remove hardware" in the right corner below of the computer screen, to keep the player free from data loss or data faillure.

When no new drive letter shows up, try another USB port.
Connect directly to the computer, not through a hub.
If you need more help, tell me at what point connecting or transferring fails in this thread.

There's also a software program called Coby Media Manager that can be used for detection or transfers. Coby Media Manager is based on MTP connection mode.
Need help for this ? Write your comment in this thread.

Wont play songs says i need sync license from pc


It depends on what program you use. If you use Napster, just connect the device and when the pop-up menu opens, click "Sync my music with Napster." I'm not quite sure what you do if you use other music downloading programs.

I need help transfering my music form the computer the the zen


What do you want to transfer it to? If you're putting it into an p3 player, once you have the music set as the type of files that your device will play, you should be able to drag & drop the songs right to the player.

Creative zen music will not play on memory card


I also use Napster. Unfortunately with the music being on the memory card and not on the device itself, Napster detects this and will not play music from the memory card.

There are two things you can do to resolve this, the first one won't cost you anything. Move non-Napster music files to the memory card, leaving only Napster music on the device itself. As a Napster-To-Go device, you'll be able to play and sync without issues. The second is to purchase the tracks from Napster that you want on the memory card. Once you do this, you can play them in any compatible media - not just the Zen device.

Instruction for zen mosaic by creative


I think alot of people are having the same problem I was. We got home, opened the box, plugged it in the computer, and nothing useful happened so then we installed the mini-cd. Well the thing is windows stops looking for a driver once it searches and finds nothing, and unfortunately those of us using XP do not automatically have the drivers. So...

SOLUTION
------------------
-If you have not already installed the mini-cd, do so, or download from Creative's site in the support section(if you do you might want to grab the latest firmware update)
-Once pack has been installed the drivers have been as well, BUT as I mentioned we now have to tell windows to look for them again.
-Reconnect your Mosaic
-Right click "My Computer"
-Chose "Properties"
-Click the "Hardware" tab
-Click "Device Manager"
-A window will pop up and you will see a long list with (hopefully only) one thing under the "Other Devices" sublist. It should be something along the lines of "Creative Zen Mosaic". Right click it
-Chose "Update Drivers"
-Follow prompts agreeing to search and auto install
-Once install is done, in a moment the screen on your Mosaic will say "Docked"
-Congratulations!
If you have downloaded the updated firmware this is the time to install:
-Ensure your Mosaic is in "Docked" mode
-Execute the firmware update
-Click "Upgrade"
-Wait (it takes a moment or two)
-Updater will say it is complete
-Mosaic will reboot
-Click "Close"
-Congratulations!

Hope that helps.

Problem transferring MP3s to Zen Vision 30GB


I have a Zen Vision M 30G, and this is what worked for me.(Widows XP home Edition. First you're going to want to transfer all your files back to your PC to back them up. I've found that even though you can't transfer from your PC to Zen, you can transfer from Zen to PC. Connect your player, and after your Pc recognizes it go to My Computer>click on your player, it should show up as "storage media.">then you right click on it, then select "reformat." A warning should pop notifing that you will lose all you data. Click yes, It should take less than a minute to complete. So essentially you have just wiped your Mp3 player's hard drive clean. Now transfer all your backed up files back to your player.

Snapbox mp3/mp4 player


It should tell you in the instructions that you need to download iTunes for Windows since it sounds like you're not on a Mac. All the controls for transferring music and synching photos etc are in iTunes. When you attach the iPod, you're connecting it to allow the transfer of files as though it was a USB Flash Memory stick, but this allows you to store other files such as Word docs on the iPod -- it does not allow you to transfer music. A big part of the reason for this is the digital rights management that the music labels insist upon.

Turn on problem and detect by PC


I had a similar problem yesterday with my Creative ZEN V 2GB. After charging it with the USB, it wouldn't turn back on. No lights or anything.
I read somewhere that if you hold down the power switch for a few seconds, and while holding down stick a pin or needle into the reset switch on the side, it will reset the player.
Amazingly, this did work for mine. It now powers on with no problems. Hope that helps.
