Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto (8GB) possible faulty USB Cable ????

Hi, Have a pink 8Gb CL Zen Micro Photo since January. It has never given me any problems until yesterday. It charges and transfers files via a usb cable. I connect the usb cable to my laptop and to the MP3 player and one of 3 things happens : It charges once the battery if flat, powers up but gets stuck on the last song played; I can see the device driver but the Micro Photo software says the device is not connected; It does not charge atall A bubble appears on my laptop screen to say the device is not recognised and has malfunctioned. All very strange ! I have the latest service pack and firmware and tried to get it to work on my work PC but the same things happened. Do you think I should buy a new usb cable ??? Grateful for any help or advice you can offer. Tracy.

    I have the same problem with my MP3. my computer does not recognize the device and it keeps asking me to install the driver. i know my cable is working because my friends computer was able to recognize the device and i can charge it but it wint let me view my files. it's not even showing up in "my computer". I checked device manager and under "other devices" the device is listed but there is a question mark beside it.

When I had that problem on my Zen I un-installed all the software and rebooted my system and reloaded the software. Not sure why it worked but it did.

Hi,

If your having a problem transferring the file on your flashdrive you can reformat the drive so that it you can use all the available space on it. Just Right Click on the flashdrive the select Format Drive.

Zen Micro 8gb freezes during transfers -6gb model works fine!


Now convinced this is bad boot sector on the HD and searching for a repair utility (the inbuilt zen reformat option doesn't sort it) or have to replace HD with new one.

Computer doesn't recognize Creative Zen Mozaic


may not be a data cable. might only be a charging cable. Try different cables since that cable(if original ) is over 8 years old and possibly bad now.

Mp3 file transfer to zen micro?!


Visit Creative Support and navigate to your mp3 player. Next download the driver for this player. Then all you need to do to transfer mp3 files is connect your player (while it's on) to your PC, open up Windows Media Player, go to the sync tab, drag the files you want on your player into the sync list on the right side of the screen and slick start sync.

Zen V Plus not charging and not recognized by windows


Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.
