If you manage somehow to access your player through the computer, run a firmware upgrade. Get the firmware + instructions here - http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1301 Take care to follow the instructions.

The songs are in the wrong format or have expired licenses (either that, or you attempted a format, recovery, or firmware upgrade - all of these activities result in the songs being erased).

It's telling me to synchronize music that I own (copied from cds)

Use Windows Media Player to rip the songs into Mp3 format - make sure you select mp3 in the Rip options. Real Player rips songs from CD into the wrong format.

Directory or file cannot be created

The file format is probably wrong. iTunes will not work with this player, for instance.

The format of the songs are wrong in one way or another. Each Mp3 player has a product spec sheet that lists which type of music file it is compatible with (Mp3, WMA, WAV, AAC, etc). You can't play iTunes songs, which are AAC format, on a player that only accepts Mp3 or WMA format.

The second formatting issue has to do with the DRM license on the songs you have downloaded. Right click a song that gave you an error, click on "Properties," and click on the "License," "Media Usage Rights," or "Digital Rights Mgmt" tab (wording varies by configuration). Not every song allows unlimited or even one-time transfer to a "portable device" (code word for "Mp3 player" in this case). Also, some songs are fixed-term - they expire after a while - sometimes in as little as 24 hours.

To get around this, convert every song to Mp3 format. Either that, or upgrade your music service subscription to the highest pkg they have available and never cancel (Napster's basic music svc, for instance, does not let you transfer to an Mp3 player, but their "Napster To Go" upgrade does allow transfer).

My creative zen keeps telling me playback error so i can't listen to music. ive reset it a million times

either the songs are in the wrong format, or you have a corrupt DB.

Get firmware upgrade or recovery mode instructions from Creative's website.

If you are trying to download iTunes songs - dont!

If NONE of these changes work,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Music will not save to MP3 beyond 13 %

You are doing nothing wrong this just seems like a manufactuer error.

If warranty still stands take it back and explain to them the problem you have.

If the mp3 player came with a CD install the software on the CD.

Most mp3 players these days come with there own music uploading software.

I have tryed to find Delstars website but they don't seem to have an official website. If a instruction guide came with it have a look for a website.

My finall solution would to format your mp3 player (not just deleting the songs) doing format correctly.

If you want to try formatting follow these steps. Go to "Start" - "My Computer" look for something called "Removable Disk" which should be your mp3 player now right click on it and click on "Format". Allow it to format and put music on it again as normal and see if that works.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
