Creative Zen Ubuntu problem

I'm not able to transfer files from (or to) my Creative Zen, I think it's because of my Ubuntu Operating system.

Is there a fix to this problem, I really don't want to install an additional os on my computer.

Creative Zen media players use MTP (Media Transfer Protocol). Linux and Ubuntu (or any other Linux distribution) don't support MTP, and won't be able to transfer files to or from the Creative Zen device. To sort out this problem follow these steps -

1. Click on Applications, go to Add/Remove...

2. Select show All Open Source Applications and search for Gnomad

3. Select Gnomad2 by putting a little tick in the box, and hit Apply Changes.

4. Hook up your media player, start Gnomad (Applications > Sound & Video), and you are good to go.

I have a creative zen and i cant transfer audio files to it


plug your zen into pc usb. then go to start menu, find the folder containing your zen drive. You can copy and plaster or drag and drop your files into your zen here this way. If your pc is not recognizing your zen, then make sure you have the lastest updated driver for zen on your pc. This driver must be installed and up-to-date for your pc to recognize your zen

Creative ZEN running on UBUNTU


I've had the Zen working fine on various versions of Ubuntu - it's worth upgrading though.

I heard the KZenExplorer isn't really supported that much, I tend to use Gnomad2, it seems the option of choice.

Instruction for zen mosaic by creative


I think alot of people are having the same problem I was. We got home, opened the box, plugged it in the computer, and nothing useful happened so then we installed the mini-cd. Well the thing is windows stops looking for a driver once it searches and finds nothing, and unfortunately those of us using XP do not automatically have the drivers. So...

SOLUTION
------------------
-If you have not already installed the mini-cd, do so, or download from Creative's site in the support section(if you do you might want to grab the latest firmware update)
-Once pack has been installed the drivers have been as well, BUT as I mentioned we now have to tell windows to look for them again.
-Reconnect your Mosaic
-Right click "My Computer"
-Chose "Properties"
-Click the "Hardware" tab
-Click "Device Manager"
-A window will pop up and you will see a long list with (hopefully only) one thing under the "Other Devices" sublist. It should be something along the lines of "Creative Zen Mosaic". Right click it
-Chose "Update Drivers"
-Follow prompts agreeing to search and auto install
-Once install is done, in a moment the screen on your Mosaic will say "Docked"
-Congratulations!
If you have downloaded the updated firmware this is the time to install:
-Ensure your Mosaic is in "Docked" mode
-Execute the firmware update
-Click "Upgrade"
-Wait (it takes a moment or two)
-Updater will say it is complete
-Mosaic will reboot
-Click "Close"
-Congratulations!

Hope that helps.

My creative Zen 8Gb wont allow more than 597 songs..


I'll run a cleanup on your zen, if that doesn't work then you should format it and re-transfer everything. Additionally, you may want to upgrade your players firmware.

How to enter the Zen’s Recovery Mode for Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware, and Reboot:

1. With the Zen off, press and hold the "play/pause" button.

2. Continue to hold until you perform Steps 3 and 4. If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.

3. Gently push the end of a thin object (like a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. You should be able to feel the release click of the button.

4. Slide the On/Off/Lock switch towards the power button and hold until the boot screen appears on the display.

The Recovery Mode screen appears, and four menu items are shown:

Clean Up: A cleanup of the file system and database files takes place. All (uncorrupted) data should stay in tact. When the cleanup is complete, select Reboot. Your player restarts and starts rebuilding its music library. All files should remain intact unless they were detected as being corrupt.

Format All: This will completely reset the Zen and remove all user stored files on it.

Reload Firmware: This will prepare the Zen to accept a reload, new, or older firmware based on the specific firmware file you download and execute on a computer. Selecting this option will prevent your Zen from being able to boot, so make sure you have the firmware file on you computer and ready to load.

Reboot: This will execute a soft reboot of the Zen's operating system.

How to Clean Up, Delete Temp Files, and Reformat the Zen using Zen Media Explorer:

1. Plug the Zen.
2. Go to Zen Media Explorer.
3. Select "Settings and Information".
4. Select the "Tools" Tab.
5. This page will show you the options to Clean Up, Delete Temp Files, and Reformat the Zen.

(Warning: When reformatting, you will lose all files you put on the Zen)

I have a Creative Zen Mp3 player 8gig, i have music on it, which i put on through my computer, i then formatted my PC, how do i put the music from my Mp3 player back on my PC ??


If your computer is running on Windows2000 or higher versions of operating system and you only need to transfer your mp3 files to your computer. Just plug it in (USB) and it will be recognized as a removable drive then you can start copy / transfer files. Otherwise if you need to manage your files (convert / organize) you need to install the software for creative zen found in your installer CD. If you don't have one you may visit this link http://support.creative.com/Products/Products.aspx?catid=213&catName=MP3+Players I am not familiar with the exact model of your creativ player just browse from the list.

C cover art does not transfer to my zen vision m, only the music tracks transfer


A few possibilities. Go to http://193.95.171.83/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=224,E=0000000000373151655,K=1742,Sxi=15,Case=obj(8179),Kb=ww_english_add,VARSET=ws:http://us.creative.com/

for more details

Creative ZEN players do not currently support album art from Rhapsody version 4.0.
Album art is either embedded in a track, or exists as a thumbnail image in a separate file, allowing one album art file to be associated with an album. Currently, Rhapsody only supports album art embedded in the track. Future versions of Rhapsody are expected to support thumbnail versions.
Creative Media Explorer or Windows Media Player 10 or 11 can be used to transfer music purchased from Rhapsody to a player with album art included.

Album Art is supported by Creative ZEN, Creative ZEN V Plus, ZEN V, Vision:M and ZEN Vision players.
The ZEN Vision (PF1150) requires a firmware update for Album Art. You can download the updated firmware:
If you experience any difficulty transferring Album Art with Windows Media Player 10 or 11, to ZEN Vision:M, delete WMPInfo.xml (see below), and then transfer the tracks again.

Creative ZEN running on UBUNTU


Creative Zen uses MTP which is a Microsoft jobby. Gnomad will allow you to transfer files between Ubuntu and your Zen, and you should be able to find Gnomad under the Add/Remove option in Applications.

I'll make a full walkthrough and add it to my blog later today.
