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.

Im unable to update my version of ubuntu thru auto update as it says my version is not supported anymore what can i do to update my system?

Welcome to FixYa.
You have to download and re-install the latest version of Ubuntu. Download from this link
Make sure to back up all your important files before doing the re-installation.
Ubuntu is a FREE Operating System, though they are trying very hard to support its users, it does not guarantee a total complete auto support like automatic updates. You have to re-install everything when new release is available.

Trying to download

Whilst most conventional operating systems you must pay for, or come free with some hardware. It is very easy to download some operating systems that are linx based. I would suggest downloading the latest version of ubuntu from this link:

Can only quit on Ubuntu installation step 6 of 7.

If you quit the installation ubuntu won't work. Perhaps I don't understand what your saying, but try going through the entire installation proccess (which will wipe the files of the old ubuntu piece of the hard drive).

Widows vista compatable

make sure you have the latest version of the program and the latest updates for your OS (you could even try older versions of the software). Is the software compatible with vista? Try and run the program in safe mode... If it still don't work then maybe it just isn't compatible with your current system configuration (google the problem to see if others had the same issue). does it freeze other computers running vista? Ask yourself these types of questions to narrow down the possiblities and therefore finding the source of your problem. If you require additional assistance just come back and one of us will promptly answer your questions :)
