My creative zen stone plus cant switch on,except use a usb cable to connect it... and the word on the screen not clear anymore....why its happen??and how to solve it??


Hi, from the way you said your problem, might not be easy for me to just give you a direct answer to the problem. Because i don't know what happened to it before it started acting the way it those.

So what you can do for me is to write out another comment and really describe exactly what happened to it that made it the way it is now.

But before you do that let me give you some Tips to troubleshoot it first and see if it will solve the problem.

How to Troubleshoot With a Zen Stone MP3 Player

Creative Zen Stone MP3 players work without problems under most conditions, but may occasionally malfunction during normal operation. Malfunctions are often caused by errors in the player software but are occasionally caused by other issues. If your Creative Zen Stone MP3 player is not playing back music or responding to button presses, troubleshoot your device. Most problems are common and do not require service.

Instructions


Plug the small end of the USB cable into the USB jack on the Zen Stone MP3 player. If the rechargeable battery is drained, the MP3 player will not work. Wait until the indicator light stops blinking before removing it from your computer.


Connect the MP3 player to your computer and open the Creative Media Lite software on your computer. Check for updates to the player's firmware by pressing the "Check for Updates" button in the software. Follow the onscreen instructions to update the firmware if one is available. Firmware updates correct problems with the software and may resolve the problem with your device.

Reset the Zen Stone MP3 player to clear any errors that may have developed in the device's software. To reset the device, stick the end of a straightened paper clip into the hole marked "Reset." The device will restart.


Reformat the player as a last resort for fixing your Zen Stone MP3 player. To reformat the player, connect it to your computer and open "My Computer." Your player is located in the "Devices with Removable Storage" section. Right click on your MP3 player, select "Format," and confirm the selection.


Tips & Warnings

If you are still unable to operate your Creative Zen Stone MP3 player, visit the Creative support website.

Reformatting your Zen Stone MP3 player will delete all of the information on your device. Only reformat your player as a last resort.

Thanks for using fixya..

After three months of trying and trying in many computers, following many, many procedures found all over the Internet, my Creative Nomad has accepted the firmware and has borned again.
What I did?
1. Connected the Nomad on a computer with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 9, that never has been touched by a creaive device.
It recognizes the device but can´t find any update to the drivers,
2. Updated Windows Media Player 9 to Windows Media Player 10,
3. Restart the computer
4. Connect the Nomad and the computer recognizes the device and autamtically search and found updated MPT drivers.
5. Run the firmware update program "ZenXtraP4SAudible_PCFW_LB_2_10_03 (Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03)"
6. Finally the magic button always has been disabled was enabled so start reloading firmware.
And now the Nomad is working in windows vista.

The difference between the computer where the firmware works and the others is that this has never had media player 10 or 11 and never has installed creative drivers.
Hope this can be useful to smoeone, somewhere, sometime.....

My MuVo was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in August 2006. 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.

You could try reinstalling the Creative Mass Storage Driver 1.07.00.250 to get your computer to recognize it again.

If it is also acting funny as a player, try installing 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 TX FM Firmware 1.24.02.

Of course, you'll have to get it to talk to your computer before you can update the firmware.
