Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player

1 Answer

Don't like PlaysForSure

I don't like PFS, messes up Win XP explorer (crashes), whats with showing file name aswellas track title in Mediasource, not interested in cover art, Just want my music!!!
Having spent 8 weeks bringing back to life my old Zen after the farce of upgrading firmware to PFS I want the 'old' Zen back.
"Is it safe?" to downgrade firmware to 1.20.08 from 2.10.03 after all the **** I've been through I am worried that by hitting 'OK' it might screw up my Zen (again!).
Any thoughts?

Whenever I put songs in my RCA MP3 player from blank cds, the organization gets immensely messed up, forcing me to start all over from scratch (0 music). Why? Or how can I fix this?


It could be that your RCA MP3 player is sorting the MP3's by track number. By this I don't mean the track number in the file name of the MP3 but in the "MP3 tag". There's a portion of every MP3 file that allows the file to contain lots of data other than the sound. It contains things like Album, Year, Artist, Title, Composer, Genre, etc. It's likely that the RCA MP3 player is reading the "Track Number" field of the MP3 tag for each MP3 file. You can download a free program called MP3Tag at http://www.mp3tag.de/en/. It will let you specify the track numbers for each MP3. See if setting each file's "Track Number" allows you to sort the order on the MP3 player.

I have 2GB clip and every time I download some


Hi there !!!

When you say every time you download some files and if it says UNKNOWN. Then i would say the ID3 TAGS could be an issue.
This issue occurs when information in a track's ID3 tag is missing or incorrect.
ID3 tags
allows information such as the title, artist, album, track number, or other information about the file to be stored in the file itself.

In order to fix this up. Kindly follow any of these steps..

Step 1:

1. Open Windows Media Player.
2. Under Library, look for the file to be edited.
3. Right-click the file, then select Advanced Tag Editor.
4. Enter the proper data for the fields available (i.e., Title of the track, Artist Name, Album Name, Genre, Track number, etc.)
5. Click Apply then OK.

Step 2:

Using Windows Explorer
1. Look for the location of the file.
2. Right-click on the file, then select Properties.
3. Click the Summary tab.
4. Click the Advanced >> button.
5. Look for the information you want to edit under Property.
6. Click the space under Value to edit the information.
7. Click Apply then OK.

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!

Hi tater. Hmmm. The product category you selected is for a Standard E260. But if your player is an E250R (Rhapsody player), here's a set of procedures that might help you. Deleting songs from your E250R can be done in 2 ways: By using Windows Media Player 10 or 11, or by browsing the player through Windows Explorer. Before you delete files, though, it's important to know that your player comes in 2 modes: "Rhapsody" and "PlaysForSure". The reason why is that music files saved in one mode would not be seen in the other mode, and vice versa. Therefore, if you can't find the music files in your player, switch to the other mode. Here's how to do it: Use the "Menu" button to navigate the player as follows: Menu > Settings > Mode > This will give you the option of: "Rhapsody" and "PlaysForSure". Here's how to delete your songs: (1) By Using WIndows Media Player: > Plug your Sansa to your computer and open your Windows Media Player. > If your Windows Media Player is version 10, then click on the "Sync" tab and you should see your player ("E250R") on the right pane along with its folders, named "Data" and "Media" or "Music". Expand the "Media" folder and you'll see the "Music" folder containing your songs. Right-click on a song and select "Remove" to delete them. > If your Windows Media Player is version 11, then either click on the "Sync" or "Library" tab and you'll see your player listed on the left pane. The music files will be displayed on the center window. Right-click on a song and select "Delete" to delete the songs. (2) By browsing the player in Windows Explorer Note: the folders containing the music files on your player are "Hidden" and you would need to set your Windows Explorer to show "Hidden Files and Folders". Open your Explorer, select "Tools" on the top menu, select "Folder Options", select the "View" tab and enable the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" radio button. > Plug your Sansa to your computer and open your Windows Explorer > If your player is in "PlaysForSure" mode, then your player will be recognized as a "Portable Media Device". Double left-click on your Sansa E250R and you'll see 2 sub-folders named "Data" and "Media". Open the "Media" folder and you'll find sub-folders normally named after the Artist. Your songs are located on those Artist folders. Delete them by using the keyboard "Delete" key or right-click the file and select "Delete" > If your player is in "Rhapsody" mode, then your player will be recognized as a "Removable Drive" with a drive letter. Double left-click on your Sansa E250R and you'll see the following sub-folders: "Albums", "Music", "Photo", "Pictures", "Playlist", etc. Your songs can be found in the "Music" sub-folder. Delete them by using the keyboard "Delete" key or right-click the file and select "Delete" I hope this procedure helps. A bit lengthy but, hey, it worked for me (lol).
