Creative zen vision m is not detected.

I have issues with this mp3 player. my new ibm lenovo notebook does not seem to detect the player. it showed as 'mtp device' on the device manager instead. i have already installed the appropriate softwares and still the same problem persist. I have tried to install it by using the 'add new hardware' on the control panel and it still goes undetected. the weird pasrt is the player can be detected on my the other toshiba notebook. any solutions to solve this problem?

You Could Try This.. 

I'm Using Windows XP (SP2) 

I Had This Problem with my Zen & found that if I Uninstalled the USB in Device Manager (Portable Devices) and rebooted the computer and let Windows redetect and install them.

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PLAYER PLUGGED INTO THE PC WHEN YOU DO WHAT'S BELOW, AS YOU NEED IT TO APPEAR IN PORTABLE DEVICES

To Get To Device Manager Quickly - Highlight My Computer On Desktop/Right Mouse & Choose Properties/Choose Hardware At Top/Then Select Device Manager/Then Portable Devices/Highlight Your Player & Right Mouse Then Choose Uninstall/Exit Device Manager/Disconnect Your Player/Them Restart Computer..../When The Computers Ready Try Connecting Your Player Again It Should Work?

My player charges but isn't being detected in order to add music


You don't have enough room on your drive to do this. I had the same problem. I took all my router ports off and connected just my creative vision player only and it worked. Computer system was over loaded.

Firmware problem


No take-backs. You can re-download the firmware. First you need to fix your player connection problem by going to Control Panel=>Uninstall Software and uninstall/downgrade WMP11 and WMP11 runtime. You should have WMP10 afterwards. Then go to Control Panel=>System=> go to the Devices tab and uninstall portable devices driver showing as the MTP Device. Restart. Connect your player via USB and it should be detected. Then go to Creative's website and get a firmware utility for your player by navigating the website. The update should happen automatically after you run the utility.

Creative Zen Vision M


Greetings,

Since it is working fine on XP, we'll focus on Vista (as it was recognized before).

As stated here, Creative website Vista information page, your product is supported natively (driver is built-in Vista).

Scroll down to further suggestions and locate the Firmware Upgrade link for Vista compatibility (there's also a link button on top of the webpage just under the MP3 Player Recovery Tool button).

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

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.

For creative zen vision w


My MuVo was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in March 2007. If you haven't updated the player's firmware since then, try downloading it and installing Creative MuVo V200 Firmware 1.13.03.

If you can't get your computer to even recognize the player anymore, you could try reinstalling the Creative Mass Storage Driver 1.07.00.250.

Other downloads for the Creative MuVo V200 are located here.
