Hello PSBFD2,

The Creative Zen touch should be supported on the Vista natively. Native drivers are a set of software files that come with the Microsoft operating system. These allow the operating system to recognize and control the functionality of a device. Windows Vista includes native operating system support for some Creative products while others will require you to acquire drivers from Creative.
Note: The MP3 products ZEN Micro, ZEN Sleek, ZEN Xtra and ZEN Touch require the latest firmware/software to ensure Native Support in Window Vista.

Vista comes with a MTP driver which will probably work with your player. The MTP driver will allow you to transfer media from your laptop / PC to your Zen Touch using programs like Windows Media Player 11, MediaMonkey and others. You don't need to install Creative software on your Vista laptop. As a matter of fact, installing Creative software on Vista computers usually results in problems, since the software may have compatibility problems with Vista.


Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! or Helpful rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Dont have my creative zen touch model no: dap-hd0014 installation disk, how can i link my zen to my computer without disk ?


If you need to install the drivers for your Zen MP3 player you can go to http://support.creative.com/downloads/?h=7 and download what you need. The very first driver listed includes support for the Zen Touch, so all you need to do is download that driver, open it, and follow the install instructions.

Creative zen mosaic fails to be detected on my computer


First I think the your player does not work with Vista, probably that's why its not seeing it. The installation CD is supposed to carry the required software for converting preferred songs to the player's desired formats and it also should contain the desired drivers for windows.

My creative software for Zen Sleek Photo won't load on Vista


Vista by default will support the Zen Sleek Photo as an MTP device, which means that Windows Media Player will recognize it as well as Explorer.

You can use WMP to sync music to it, and Explorer to drag/drop photos to it.

Creative Zen mp3 player - computer won't recognise it


The ONLY AND I REPEAT ONLY way to solve zen and computer recognistion problem is to have THE ORIGINAL INSTALL DISK that came with player.
The only things that will work is
1. Download Utorrent 2. Go to google or yahoo and search Creative (you'r player type ie zen touch, zen mossiac, zen x, etc.etc.) install disk torrent. 3. Try to find the one that is closest to the name of your player (ie. zen touch, mossiac, x) and download the install disk. 4. After the download finishes you should be able to run setup like you have the disk.
I downloaded the install disk torrent and after i finished downloading I simply found the setup file clicked it and installed the neccessary files, and presto my computer recognised my zen touch.
#2 If you can't find a install disk for you perticular player, you should try to see if maybe a friend or someone youknow has a creative mp3 player and ask to borrow there install disk, who knows it just might work for you'r player. Best of luck and I hope this will solve you zen player/computer problem
