SOURCE: zen vision m not recognized....

here, this is what I did to fix this problem. copy and paste from my original post on anythingbutipod.com

"My player is completely charged, I have XP w/SP2 - I can turn it on and listen to the default audio tracks and videos...I just can't get my computer to recognize it AT ALL!"

and then:

also, when I try to allow "everyone" to the USB....I found that in the advanced section I have TWO "everyones".

The one that says "full control" says "not inherited" in the inherited from column...the other says "read" and "machine\system\currentcontrolset......."

Should there be two of them in there??? Because when I try and switch the read to full control, it reverts back as soon as I select apply or ok....I tried deleting it but it re-creates itself soon as I go out of the window.

so I was told to do this:

Sounds like an NT problem. I don't know the exact steps to do this, but you'll need to remove inheritable permissions from that, which will remove the "inherited" attribute, leaving the locally-controllable one.


So open "run" command in the start menu and type "regedit"

From there follow this path...

"hkey_current_config" -> system -> current control set -> Enum -> USB

Do what I copy and pasted above and then plug your Zen V:M in and it should recognize it.

SOURCE: firmware update went wrong

What operating system are you using? The Zen Touch firmware update will fail in Vista or 7 -- you need to run the update from an XP install. Once you successfully get the 2.11 firmware on the Touch, it will then interface with those later OS's without difficulty. Also, what version of Windows Media Player are you running? Believe it or not, this makes a BIG difference. The latest Media Player 11 will cause the firmware flash to fail, as will WMP <= 9. I have three separate players that have experienced this problem, including one that had been disassembled THREE YEARS AGO after a failed flash, and was able to resurrect all utilizing this method:

(1) Uninstall everything Creative: the driver, Jukebox, etc. Delete the Creative folder from Program Files. (Some amendment to these instructions may be in order if you have a Creative sound card -- I have built-in Realtek sound so it didn't apply in my case). A restart may or may not be required: go ahead and do so to be safe.

(2) Plug the device in after restart. Windows will want to find drivers for it -- cancel that process. Open the Device Manager. The Touch should come up with an exclamation point next to it (since the drivers were not uninstalled): right-click and select "Uninstall." I have seen instructions on the Web to also uninstall all USB root hubs, but I have found that unnecessary and a pain if you have a USB keyboard and/or mouse. Unplug the device. Restart.

(2) If you are running a version of Windows Media Player not equal to 10, either install 10 (if you have 9 or below) or roll back from 11 if you have that. Restart.

(3) Plug the device back in. My supposition is that this is particular to WMP 10, hence the problems with other versions. The device should pop up as "Creative Zen Touch:" if Windows asks to find drivers, cancel that process, and the device should now come up as an "MTP device."

(4) Since the firmware flash failed, the Zen is probably in recovery mode. Launch the firmware updater software on the computer, and stay at the language selection screen. Choose option 3, "reload firmware," from the recovery menu. It will inform you that it is "deleting old firmware" and then will give you a short period of time with a dialog saying "start firmware update" on the Zen screen. During this time period (about 2 secs), press the language selection of your choice on the computer in order to start the update. It should go through successfully this time.

How can i connect my creative zen with my pc if i connect creative zen vith computer i cant find it in My Computer


I had a similar problem after I had used my Zen a few times. I plugged the device into my PC and it sounded like windows was trying to connect to to the Zen but didn't make the normal two tone USB device connection sound. It was more mono-tone. I tried reinstalling the Zen Media Explorer and that didn't do anything. I later looked at the Zen under windows device manager and noticed windows marked the Zen as having issues. I right clicked on the device and picked un-install driver. I then unplugged the Zen and plugged it back into my PC to allow driver re-install. I was able to connect to the zen after that.

1. disconnect zen.
2. install software (if you have already, go on)
3. uninstall the zen-driver
(winxp: Go to START->control panel->System
->Hardware->HardwareManager; uninstall zen with right mousclick->uninstall.
Not sure, if the naming is correct, cause i have no english winxp)
4. Connect Zen.

Hope that will help :)

Creative Zen V Plus stops reading


· Make sure you have media player 11
· If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
· Download recovery tool off creative's website.
