Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player

2 Answers

First solution suggested did not work

The unit is NOT recognized by the computer when it is plugged in. I un/re-installed the drivers but the computer tells me the installations do not take effect until the unit is plugged in. The unit was plugged in it just doesn't recognize it! It goes to re-building library mode every time I turn it on and the computer does not respond to its existence...what can I do?

    Same problem here. Every time I turn it on, it goes into Re-Building Library mode. After it re-builds, it freezes up. I plug it in to the computer and it says that the device isn't plugged in.

Creative Labs Nomad Zen Extra Jukebox 30 GB not working


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!

Insignia Pilot - USB device not recognized


I fixed it! I guess it's good that I'm not tech ****** otherwise, I'd would've only had the option to return it as Insignia's tech support response sucks *****!

Go to their site, and look up how to switch your player from MTP read mode, to MSC read mode. (They'll say it's just for MACs, but I just did it for my WinXP Notebook and it solved all my problems.)

It's really simple, and should only take 2 minutes.

Computer doesn't recognize unit when connected


I am guessing there is a problem with the driver for the audio player. I have a Coby Audio Player MP-C827, and one day my brother decided to just remove it from the computer without correctly stopping it. Ever since, whenever I plug in it into my PC, it just does not open...nothing happens. And I don't have the cd to re-install the driver files. With respect to all of the above, a driver file which is needed by the mp3 is either damaged or corrupt. Contact me at ramone.williams89@gmail.com

Formatting issue


Does the device show connected? If so check the device manager for any red or yellow errors. If there are errors, right click on the device and select un-install. Disconnect the device from the computer, wait a few seconds and reconnect. The device should re-install the drivers and device should be recognized. Best of Luck.

Computer Won't Recognize Device


Try plugging your USB cable (attached to your player) into the computer before you turn the computer on and boot up . . . I had this same problem with a flash drive that the computer would not recognize if I plugged it into the computer while the computer was already on.

Computer not recognizing my Sansa m230


try updating the driver: right click "my computer" > properties > hardware (tab) > device manager > and you'd have a large list of hardwares. go to portable device, and click "sansa m2xx" (or whatever it is that says in your drive) to highlight it, and click the "update driver" button, which should be the 3rd to the last button at the top of your window. that's how it worked for me, and i'm using windows xp version. hope this helps.
