My zen isn't being supported

My zen that I just purchased was fine until I started to use itunes. Now I can't even download plain music to my zen. I did uninstall itunes as it turned out to be useless.

I have never used anything but the software that came with the Zen to upload the music to the Zen. There is also new firmware out for the Zen that you could try to use.

Cant download music purchased from itunes


If you lost your music purchased from iTunes, Apple support might allow you to download them again if you're lucky. Most often in this case you're SOL though (the biggest reason I will never buy music on iTunes again).

I cannot download songs from itunes onto my sansa


This can get quite difficult due to copyright problems. Even though you legally purchased the music, ITunes uses something called Digital Rights Management to keep people from doing anything illegal with their products. In addition, the Sansa media player most likely does not support MP4 format, which is what ITunes plays music in. Hopefully, you dont have many songs you are wanting to do this with. You have 1 of 3 options that I know of:

1. -Burn all files onto a blank cd.
-Re-load the files into itunes from the blank cd (Import) (This
strips the DRM and should allow you to put the music into a
foreign player). You will, however, lose the artwork from the
songs and will have to re-name them most likely.
-You will also have duplicate songs in ITunes until you delete
the copy you dont want (or keep it).
2. Purchase a software like noteburner which can strip DRM for
you (does the same as option 1, just cleaner). Costs approx.
$35.00
3. Trade the Sansa for an IPOD.

Unable to sync music purchased from itunes onto zen mp3


I believe iTunes may not like to sync with not apple players, but I am sure DRM protection is to blame here. You can try to sync your music with the software provided by Zen, or a program called MediaMonkey, to see if it works.
Otherwise, if the music is DRM protected .mp4, you can always burn the songs into a standard AUDIO CD, and then rip the music back to your computer, that way it loses the DRM protection, and should be easy to sync without problems.

I can't download my iTunes music to my creative zen jukebox mp3 player.


Not all Zen jukeboxes are compatible with iTunes (possibly 100% are not) - convert the .AAC format songs from iTunes with an AAC to Mp3 Converter, and you should be fine. Or, use a different music service that is compatible with your Zen. Or, get an iPod. Whichever you prefer.

My creative zen keeps freezing!


Hi -
I know this response is way late to help you, but I was having the same problem. I could turn the zen on fine, but as soon as I tried to play music it would freeze and I couldn't turn it off. Using the reset button didn't help any since it would still freeze if I tried to play anything.

But I found reformatting the entire zen totally fixed it.

-directions-
Connect your zen to your computer, go to windows explorer, click computer on the side bar, and your zen should be under "portable devices". Click on it. You should now be viewing the "storage media". Right click and select "Format...". This completely resets the zen, clearing any preferences or media you put on it and the freezing problem.

It was annoying putting all the pictures, videos, and itunes back onto my zen, but at least it works now. Since I've reformatted it, I have had no problems.

Hopefully this helps others who experience this problem.
