Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox III MP3 Player
I have had this since 2005 and have NEVER had a problem with it other then some of the songs sounding like they were mixed together. I took all of the music off of it and put them back on. Still had the same problem so I figured I would try one more time but only put on a few songs at a time and not all at once. But I never made it that far. I tried to make sure that I had the Firmware and since then I have NOT been able to reinstall the Firmware. I cannot install the MediaSourse Player/Organizer because it cannot connect to the device. But the funny thing is that it shows that it is in the Device manager and the LCD screen on it shows the sync icon.
This is lilocowboy, I don't remember my password is to log on and I missed a part of my email address to retreive it. Hope I can get that corrected...lol I was able to get my Zen Xtra to work and wanted to share with you all what I found.
Here is the link where I found out how to get my MP3 player to work:
Here is what I installed when it gets to that part in the instructions. My OS is Windows XP Pro so the files are based on that.
Driver: #1 - Creative ZEN and Jukebox Driver 2.01.00
Firmware: #1 - Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03
Application: #8 - Creative Software Suite for PlaysForSure-enabled Creative NOMAD Jukebox Zen Xtra Players
It works like a charm. I really like the application software because now I can put the Artist Folder with the Album folder and the tracks to that album in my Zen Xtra and not worry about dupe song names by different artists. I hope this helps you all.
Thank you walkertron for this fix

Ok this is what I have found.....Try to run the Recovery Mode here is a link to Creative Labs website that will walk you through it... Just look for Jukebox its on the bottom...you can get the firmware from the same website under support and then just select the type of jukebox you have....that will be the second link...You will need to click on Zen and then look on the right side for Archived Products
Good Luck and let me know if this helped
