Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player
I used the software to add about a thousand tracks today, but suddenly
it stopped accepting uploads. I attempted to drag an mp3 file
from another explorer window, as i did for the other thousand tracks
that worked, into the music library, and it just showed the mouse
pointer as a circle and slash.
There is almost 12 Gb free on the jukebox, and other than that, it all appears to be working fine. I have restarted the software, restarted my computer, restarted the jukebox, and changed the mp3 file properties every which way i could think of. The files i am attempting to play all work on winamp, and they didnt come from any crappy drm restricted files (some of them came from cassette, ripped by me).
I think the problem was related to the id3 tagging, but i wasnt able to conclusively determine that. I had to uninstall the nomad explorer, and reinstall it. That didnt stop it from happening again, but each time the same solution worked. Then the thing crapped on itself furthur. It would turn off then back on, and say it was rebuilding the library. Then it would turn itself off midway through that, and start over. I removed the battery, and put it back in. The thing made it all the way through the rebuild of the library, then just had a little icon on the display saying firmware problem. The solution was a firmware upgrade. I had to hold down the play button while sticking a paper clip in the reset. Then a menu came up and i selected reset OS. It deleted the OS, and re-upped one from the file i found at the creative website. The problem recurred at least once, and the solution was the same each time. It never lost any content while going through this rigamarole, but i did lose some hours fggin with it.
