Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

We need a driver for our Polaroid PMP350-4 4GB Touch screen. I tried what the first person suggested but there isn't a media player utilities 5.20 selection to choose from. We got two of these for our sons for Christmas and are most upset they can't use them. The 800 number is a joke. If you get through, the voice mail option is full. ANYONE that can help us to get these to work, it would be much appreciated :) Thanks

SOURCE: Creative Zen Touch firmware problem

Before preceding, goto control panel, add/remove programs (vista equivalent) select windows media player and uninstall note the response it gives you. If it is going to allow you to uninstall OR downgrade windows media player to version 9 then keep going. If not, then find another computer that you've never used the player on try upgrading firmware there, make SURE it's got windows media player 9 by downgrading it in add/remove programs.

Now for the fun stuff:

Sounds like the same problem I've resolved several times in the past on here.

1. Plug in the device.
2. Goto device manager in control panel and remove the device drivers.
3. Reboot if it asks you to, make sure to unplug the device.
4. Goto device manager again, remove the USB hubs.
5. Don't reboot.
6. Goto control panel, add remove software or equivalent for windows vista ultimate.
7. Select creative labs, and uninstall any and every zen related software.
8. Don't reboot.
9. Goto my computer, find the creative directory located on your main hard drive at \program files\creative. Deleted it completely.
10. Select windows media player select uninstall, or downgrade accordingly.
11. Make sure your zen touch is not plugged in and reboot your system.
12. After system loads, plug in the device and run the firmware software again.

And if you wish, reinstall windows media player 10 and the creative software (which you don't need at all with vista) all the other drivers should reinstall themselves.

BTW it's a hell of alot easier to just use another CPU if you have access to one, I've done it both ways and it saves alot of time.

SOURCE: Creative Zen Touch firmware problem

I had the same issue after trying to update firmware the PC kept saying the player was not connected, I have copied the reply below from Creative Customer Services on how I fixed this problem. I was lucky that I have access to an old PC that had WMP 10 so I didn't need to mess with my own PC. However, there was some messing about with the instructions to get the fix. My main tip is follow the instructions below, then go to device manager and uninstall the Zen from your USB list, it will probably be flagged with a yellow triangle. Remove it totally and then reinstall the Zen driver, this worked for me after I had taken the steps listed here;

1. Please uninstall all Creative software & Drivers.
2. If WMP 11 is installed, remove it including Media Player 11 runtime
(may require a reboot for each thing).
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall these two files (this will put
your pc back to wmp10). http://support.creative.com/kb/ShowArticle.aspx?sid=16737

Related topic is further explained on this page http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/readme.aspx#DevicenotrecognizedafterinstallingWindowsMediaPlay
3. Download the following files from the website and save them to a
unique folder.
http://support.creative.com/welcome.aspx
You may have to select your own Product > Choose your Specific Model>
then Double Click.
Down below; please ensure that your Operating System selected is Windows XP.

Driver : Creative Zen and Jukebox Driver Upgrade version 1.30.03
Firmware: Creative Zen Touch PlaysForSure Firmware 2.11.01
You may want to click the Show Details button on the right side for
additional information.

4. Re-install the Zen Driver and reboot the PC and then connect the
player.
5. Make sure the firmware update is ready,
Run the program but don't click the language bit yet), leave the mouse
hovering over your language selection.
6. On the Zen - select the option "reload OS"
7. As soon as it flashes up "reload new firmware now via USB" click the
language button on the firmware.
8. Now PC should find it and allow you to re-load the firmware. (it may
take a few attempts)
9. Once complete, click close and restart the pc. Everything should now
be fine.
10. If installation is successful, you can re-install your WMP11 and
everything should be okay this time.

Good luck

My daughter bought a Polaroid 4GB PMP280-4 player she has somehow darkened the screen and now cannot get it to light back up other than when it turns on it shows the loading screen and goes black, how do...


This is tricky. You will have to navigate through the menu in the 'dark'. Remember that when you touch the screen, double touch as you would when you click your mouse. Turn it on, you will see the 'Polaroid' logo and then it goes black. Here you need to double touch in the bottom right corner. This is the settings, it is a big box so dont worry about missing it. Then you double touch on the middle of the left side, this is the display. Then double touch on the lower right side. This is where the brightness bar is. It should reboot the page with a brighter screen and the black goes away. If dont see results, turn it off and try process again. Promise this works, I fixed both of my daughters!

I need a driver for a touch screen polaroid 4gb PMP280-4 mp3 player .


you dont need a driver. you got the driver w/installation cd.you need an icon(shortcut) on the desktop so you can find and start the program to convert or encode the vid files to the correct format.btw, on the box of mine it is "pmp280c-4". the problem is that when the setup disk installs the software it DOES NOT put the icon (shortcut) to the software on the desktop like it says it did or will! the software and device are ready but one cant find the program. i have win vista and i found the program with: start button on the taskbar (at the far left), click it and then click "all programs" and then look for "media player utilities 5.20". click that, and then right click "video converter" and then "point" to "send to" and then click "desktop (create shortcut)". this will do what the setup program did not do-it puts the shortcut on the desktop.
