Question about hard drive compatibility for Creative Zen Vision M

Would a hard drive from the Ipod work on the Creative Zen Vision M?
the ipod and the creative zen use the same model (toshiba MK3008GAL). However, I do not know if the OS is different for each player, and if they are, can this issue be fixed?

It should work but if you wanna be safe try deleting everything off of the ipod drive first. If you do a google search it seems many people are not only removing the hard drive but actually putting in much bigger hard drives. ( up to 100GB). The only thing ive noticed is that if its a SLIM version then it may not work as a few websites have said that they cant perform upgrades on the slim versions.

Screen does not light up


The only other option is to replace the main board. Unless of course the replacement screen was broken.

Turns on and then goes to rebuilding screen then says firmware problem but computer doesnt register that its hooked up


check on the zen site and make sure you have the current version for your zen.
download it and do a rebuild with new firmware.
this mp3 has a hard drive, the exact one that the ipod has. They are not immuned from crashing for sure.
But doing a reinstall of the software will probably help alot.

My USB port, no longer recognizes the Creative M, yet it charges it the same way?


If you can't connect through USB anymore (also no reaction on you computer and no sign of connecting on the screen of the player),
you are going to need a new logic board. I know only one place that repairs creative zen players and sells the parts besides ebay obviously. If you just want to get the music out you can stick the hard drive on an iPod video logic board (they are compatible) and use a utilty like sharepod to extract the music.

Creative not charging


there seems to be a problem with the batteries for the Zen. I have just sent mine in for warranty work as it will work if you have it plugged into an AC adapter but it won't work as soon as it's unplugged even after charging all night. The USB will not charge it either. Creative has sent a replacement unit, but there is a serious problem with the battery.

Player will not power up


I think this is more a Microsoft problem than a Creative problem. Seems WMP10 has issues w/ Zen. Considering MS is competing with this device, they may be lacking on it's support. What does MS care if your CREATIVE product doesn't work? They'd say just buy Zune to ensure compatibility.... and now you see the problem of a monopoly for PC OS.
