    The unit does not show up to the OS when connected with a USB cable. As a result I cannot do a fw update/reinstall.

Creative Jukebox 3

  1. Remove the battery cover
  2. Partially remove the battery
  3. Press and hold STOP button
  4. Slide the battery back into position - the unit should power on.
  5. When the CREATIVE logo appears on the display, release the STOP button then immediately press and release the PLAY button.
  6. The following options will appear on the display:
  • Clean Up (Performs a disk scan on the players hard disk)
  • Format All (Formats the players hard disk - Note: all contents will be lost)
  • Reload Firmware (Reloads the Operating System on the Jukebox. Note: Reloading your OS, will not effect the contents of the files stored on your Jukebox Zen. Select this option ONLY if you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.)
  • Reboot (Reboots the device).

    Omduncan3, Creative stopped supporting the Jukebox before Vista came out. You can try to load the latest XP drivers and see if they work, but your best bet is to find a computer running XP or Win2K and use that for managing your player's songs.

My creative zen has hung on shutdown can't do anything with it


Hi--
Reset the zen with the reset button on the player. If it still gets stuck on shutting down, reformat it. To do that, connect it to the computer, go to windows explorer\computer\portable devices. Doubleclick that to see the storage memory. Right click on that and select "Format...". This clears all the memory but usually fixes basic problems. If that doesn't work there's a serious problem.

(RCA OPAL M4204A) An update was sent via internet, it went to my unit and errased the data (as warned) and the OPAL's program. It will not leave the 'initialize' window. Turning on and off and on...


Push down the key lock switch, I think on your model it is on the side of the unit.

If it does not work, try performing the reset procedure below, From
ThaMp3Doctor
I quote
"Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which atoothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If thisdoes not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using theWindows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device. "

If it still does not work, then the lock switch is probably faulty or stuck inside, in this case you need to take apart the unit, to fix it.

Try playing with the lock switch, or resetting the unit, that should unlocck your MP3.
