Creative zen playback problem

Hi, a few days ago I bought the Creative Zen 4Gb mp3 player. Everything works fine, except movie playback, I've tried all supported file types and a lot of conversion programs, but some (a lot) of movies doesn't show the image and audio synchronized. It most be the zen's problem, because the files are played fine in the computer!
Does anyone have ever experienced this problem before? Do you guys think a firmware upgrade might help?
Please help me out, because the main reason for me to buy this product was being able to have a small portable and light mp3 player with great movie capabilities.

    Thanks for the solution #1. Before you said that, i think i fixed the problem, for the videos with 25 fps there is no sync problem so far. i am using pocketdivxencoder and using the value of 25 fps. i used this setting for a video that had a sync problem before, and problem is fixed. And also in the link http://www.squidoo.com/creative-zen) he suggest the fps value of 25.
    For the solution #2:
    no way! i am sure that creative did not do this delibrately. it is player's problem. As i said before, some looong videos with 25 fps are sync problem-free.

I actually can't speak for the other guest, as I've only ever put very short clips on mine. HOWEVER, I think your problem may be encoding. I've found that the Zen requires very precise settings before it accepts anything.

http://www.squidoo.com/creative-zen <- This link has a very in-depth portion on video conversion that I usually find very helpful. :) Hopefully it'll work for you, too.

I guess it's some kind of... piracy filter. If the clip is too long, the player will automatically asume that you've downloaded a movie illegally. that what i think.

How do you put Videos on The Creative Zen Mosaic MP3


well, creative zen likes avi, mpg and wmv formats

the reason that your creative zen won't read the avi is because the necessary codec is missed.

you can use iorgsoft creative zen video converter to convert the video to mp4,wmv then put them to creative zen.

if you want to put DVD onto creative Zen, fine, you can use iOrgsoft DVD to Creative Zen converter to remove the DRM(Digital Right Management) and regional restriaction from DVD, and you can also use it to convert DVD to avi, wmv or mpg for playback on creative zen.

Cant get videos on my Creative Zen Mozaic 4gb


The videos have to be converted using Creative Centrale in order to placed on the player. This was the same way with a lot of Creative's Zen line of players also.
If you don't have the copy that the Mosaic came with, you can download it here.

It is under the "Applications" section.

Creative ZEN 4GB


Hi, I had the same problem with my Zen V Plus. I held the volume + button in and connected the Zen to the computer using the USB cable and the Zen came back to life ! Try it - it might just work like it did for me.

Try charging it with a creative charger or bring it down to its retail store. The battery might be completely drained flat.
