Question about Creative Labs Nomad MuVo2 FM MP3 Player

1 Answer

Stuck in recovery mode and i don't know what to do

Well, here's the problem: I recently purchased a used Creative Nomad MuVo^2 and it was playing songs and all, but when i tried hooking it up through the sb port, it wasn't recognized by the computer. So, I went to the Creative website and dowloaded all the firmware needed for the player. But my plpayer was still not recognized by the computer. I have posted many questions on the Creative support labs, but noone seems to want to help. I tried the recovery mode and I finally figured out how to get it and all, but when i plug in my player via the usb port, the player's screen changes to looking like it is transferring data to the player, but it's not. I want to know if maybe the usb cable is bad or has some else had this problem and what they did to fix it. Thanks, Libertydork

I recently had a similar problem, and nothing I did helped; what I eventually did sounds pretty simple and possibly won't help ( I have a feeling that it might have been a USB port issue, more than anything). I have added the description of my problem below my 'solution'.

I disconnected the player from my PC, restarted the PC, disconnected & reconnected the battery from the Muvo2, turned the player on (just to check if it was reading the music) then turned the player off. Then (with the Muvo2 powered off) I reconnected the player to the USB cable; the darn thing was recognised immediately and was working fine...

My problem:
The player was working fine, Windows (XP Pro) recognised the device as a Muvo2 & I could transfer files no problem; I clicked on 'Safely remove hardware' and removed the player. However, when I now try to reconnect the payer Windows gives me an error message, that one of my USB devices failed to connect and that it doesn't recognise the device. It suggests reconnecting, which does nothing...

The Muvo2 screen displays the 'connected to computer' image. If I disconnect using the 'Safely remove hardware' and unplug the cable, the player display says I need to connect to my PC and run scandisk. I can't get the computer to recognise the device, so I can't run scandisk. Removing and reinserting the player's battery got rid of the 'Scandisk' message & the player worked again, but it's still not connecting to the PC.

Hi,

This is the file system problem. Use the below tool to solve it.

http://ccfiles.creative.com/ManualDn/Applications/PDE/11124/0x46D235F9/CT-RT_PCAPP_2_01_03.exe

BEFORE YOU START

  • Check that the MP3 Player Recovery Tool supports your player.
  • Ensure that you are using Windows XP® Service Pack 2 32-bit, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or Windows Vista™ (32-bit or 64-bit version).
  • Back up the contents of your player, if possible, as recovering your player may require it to be re-formatted, erasing all content.
  • Make sure your player battery is at least 50% charged.
  • Detailed usage instructions are available in our Knowledge Base.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Shuts Down

My MuVO TX was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in March 2007. If you haven't updated the player's firmware since then, try downloading it and installing Creative MuVo TX FM Firmware 1.24.02.

No sound

When you buy a new Creative NOMAD MuVo, the flash drive comes with some files, if you have the original installation disk, I think tha you can restore that files and the player will works.

I have the same problem, but I lost the instalation Files and my Muvo does not have the files on it.
