Ok... i found a fix...
insert zen v plus install cd
exit out of autorun for cd
go to control panel
click on system
click on the hardware tab
click on device manager
click on portable devices
right click on your USB device with the yellow warning sign
go to properties
when it tells you that the drivers arent installed... go to the browse button and select your zen v plus install disk
hit ok and it will find the drivers that way...

Okay I had the same problem and I was working with Windows Vista so here's what I did.
First connect the device.
Second go to the Menu and go into your Control Panel.
Third, click on the Device Manager icon.
Fourth, Click on Portable Devices
It should take you to another icon. Click on it and when the tabbed window comes up click on the driver tab. After that, click on the update driver button.
Sixth, choose the Browse my computer for software, and that should fix it!

My Creative Zen 4gb will not appear in Itunes ?


Hello,

To convert iTunes music for Creative ZEN, you shall download TunePat audio converter from a website. You shall run TunePat audio converter and iTunes simultaneously and set TunePat as the default burning drive for iTunes. You may also create an iTunes playlist to hold the songs you want to convert for Creative ZEN.
Once the conversion is completed, you can find the MP3 or WMA songs in the output folder, with all ID3 tags and album information intact. Then you can open Creative MediaSource and sync the converted to your Creative ZEN player.

Take care.

Creative Zen MP3 won't charge with mains adaptor


Don't worry that doesn't mean that your mp3 player is faulty, if there is any fault it is from the charger but since the usb charges it well, just continue to use it. It doesn't mean the player is faulty, IT HAPPENS.

Install Creative Mediasource Organizer. Locate videofiles through this and transfer. You will be told if the file is supported or not. If not, you can encode it so it will work.

Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Extra


Whirring noise = bad, probably needs to be replaced, BUT:
Uninstall everything from your PC, reboot, reinstall driver and the Explorer (I do not use MediaSource, only the Explorer).

If it didn't work out follow these steps:

1. Uninstall Creative Media Source and all related software.
2. Install the driver. In the installation CD the driver is usually in \Drivers\English
3. Turn on the Nomad an connect it to the PC.
4. Install MediaSource(the program requires that you have the nomad connected while installing)
5. Install MediaSource plugin
6. Try transferring files.

If you?re still running into problem know that there are other programs capable of handling MediaSource?s functions, such as - Portable Audio Devices Power Toy , NomadSync, Real player, and there?s also a Zen plugin for the Winamp.

Good luck!

I have a creavtive zen v


ZenV Freezes
Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?
