Try a diferant usb port ,if you have another one....
if that fails make sure your synk manager is trying to pull stuff from the right plug in(if not chang to usb)

another thing ... the software on your cd might be mesed up,
if so use the meda player on your computer to synk songs to it(i do this anyway because it is more conveniant for me)

good luck

Im having a problem when connecting my creative zen to my computer my computer will not read it


Hello,
When you experience next making connection:
Connecting the device to the computer Wizard found new hardware pops up.
Only this time the Windows update searching for software will not work on automatic routine:
ending up with "Cannot Install this Hardware".

Solution:
Manual performing the wizard, setting the device to USB connection type:
1. Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software ?
Select "No, not this time".
[Next]
2. If your hardware came with an installation CD, or floppy disk, insert it now.
Select "Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)."
[Next]
3. Please use your search and installations options.
Select "Don't search I will choose the driver to install."
[Next]
4. Select the device driver you want to install for this hardware.
Select "USB Mass Storage Device."
[Finish]

Note: when using MSC mode always safely remove hardware, the players' removable disk. The icon in the right corner of the task bar.

Once the device can be reached in MSC mode it should be ready to install new firmware on the player:
1. Backup data on the player to the computer when not on the PC already.
2. Reinstall / update firmware from computer to the player: after this the device will have all the maps for writing data and it can be approached in MTP mode again, using application software like Windows Media Player 11.

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input


It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.

Upgrade firmware problem zen touch 20 gB


I contacted Creative about a similar problem with mine when I went onto Vista and they advised that I had to update the firmware. The downside they stated was that I would probably lose all my songs. The only way round this is to save them all to a non vista computer and then upgrade and hope you can put them back onto your player. Here is the info they sent me. Not sure if it works as I never got round to it.

I understand that you cannot get the software to work in your Windows
Vista.
With regards to your enquiry, there are two things that you need to
consider, player and the software.

For a proper set up, you should update the player with an MTP Firmware
version using a PC with Windows XP installed.
What is the MTP Firmware?
http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/kb/article.asp?l=3&sid=6773

Ensure that computer has both Service Pack 2 and Windows Media Player
10.
a. Verify SP version, click+Start+Run+type Winver.

Next, update the driver first, once it has been installed, connect the
player then click the MTP firmware program.

Proceed to this link and download the following files needed.
http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/downloads/
just click on the link above then type the filename of the
driver version : JB3MV2_PCWDRV_US_2_01_00.EXE
firmware version : ZenTouchP4S_PCFW_LB_2_11_01.exe
at the search box provided.
download and save them to your folder. Click the program and follow
further instructions during the installation.

For instruction on updating the firmware, please use the link below and
select ZENTouch
http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/kb/article.asp?l=3&sid=4789

As for the software, you maybe required to download and install the
following updates below:
Please view important notes written at the website for further
information.

Proceed to this link http://uk.europe.creative.com/support/downloads/
then type the filenames: CMS5_PCAPP_LB_5_10_38.exe

CMS5_MTP_PCAPP_LB_5_00_36.exe

at the search box provided. Ensure device is attached before you start
the installation.

Sorry it's so long winded and I hope it works.

My computer will not detect that my player is connected, and my player will not dock, even though I know the lead is working as the player begins to charge.


Ok so apparently with Windows Media Player 11 and the latest XP update, the two are no longer best friends. Right click on the icon "My Computer." Select "Properties" on the bottom of the list, Click the "Hardware" tab and then click "Device Managers." Under "Portable Devices" should be "Creative Zen Media Player" and a yellow Explination mark should be on it. Rright click that and select "Update Drivers." Let it search online for an update, give it 2 minutes, and then jump in the air because your problem should be fixed like mine was. I have the 32 gig version, and was dreading losing my 3k+ songs and buying a damn Ipod, but now I don't have to. I hope it worked for yall, caus it just worked for me. This website inspired me to figure this thing out my self and not give up and buy an Ipod. Fixya is a sweet website.

Zen vision m not recognized


Same problem. Solved by downgrading Windows Media Player to v.10. Do it through Control Panel and click Remove WMP11 and WMP11 runtime. Restart, connect your player and if not recognized do go to Control Panel=>System=>Hardware tab=>Devices. Find Portable Devices drivers in the menu and click Uninstall MTP device. If still not detected, go to Control Panel=>Detect New Hardware and run that. The player should connect automatically. WMP 11 has a glitch that disallows 3rd party MTP players. Intentional or purposeful? Ask B. Gates.

Creative zen v plus


i had the same problem but solved it, it seems that the usb driver does not always install with the software installation so you must install using the DEVICE MANAGER make sure first your mp3 player is connected, so ( copy & paste) your software to desktop, then go to CONTROL PANEL, then SYSTEM, then HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER, in device manager you should see ( zen v plus ) with a yellow question mark above it, which means the drivers are missing, click onto that and follow instructions to install the drivers which you will find in the software you have pasted to desktop. good luck, tony spain
