My second enquiry is about the capacity of the player. When my player was empty, I went into "Information" and it said Total Space: 28GB and Free Space: 2GB. Why is free space only 2GB? Shouldn't it be 28 as well?
Thanks in advance!
The battery will only last about 3yrs regardless of use.You will need to change it. Did you scroll down to see the album,picture,track counts? Did you partition part of the dri've for removable storage.

  • Creative Zen Vision M:30Gb freeze problem skipping between tracks

    Hi guys,
    I bought my Zen Vision M:30GB 2 years ago. It was a regenerated model by Creative.
    I'm fully satisfied of this product, i think the best of his category, but It has this problem since two years...Sometimes when i skip between mp3s (especially in random mode) it freezes and remains on the screen of current mp3, blocked...even I try to touch all buttons it doesn't unblock and i have to reset with a clip in the reset hole.
    I've noticed that this problem comes especially when i use random mode of entire library (about 4000 songs) or however with a long playlist...it doesn't happen when i listen a single album (about 20 mp3s in playlist)
    Sincerely i'm a little bored ...
    I tried to do some clean and format up by the system menu, but the problem persists...
    I've also thinked the problem could be because there are in library mp3 with variant bitrate...or a physical problem (I hope not)
    What do you think of?
    Thanks for help!

  • Creative Zen Vision M 30gb firmware problem

    My mp3 player took a spill onto the floor and it worked fine after. after i was done using for the day i shut it off and then the next day i turned it back on and it went to safe mode and said there was a hard disk problem. i was able to successfully format it. now when i start it up it says there is a firmware problem. i tried reloading it but the firmware i got off Creative.com doesn't recognize it, but my computer does.
    Any suggestions?

    A Firmware Problem is like when Windows gets corrupted and won't boot.
    You probably need to Reload the Firmware through the Recovery Menu, but I'd try a Disk Clean-up first, on the off-chance that it's a less serious problem.
    Be sure to back up all your files first, as there is a chance that they'll get wiped when you reload the firmware.

  • Creative Zen Vision M (30gb) - Is it the end?

    Hi all,
    I've read a lot of posts and think the only way to find a possible solution to my problem is to just post it....
    I've had my Creative Zen Vision M (30gb) for about?2.5 years, apart from crashing a few times, I've always loved it and would never go near Ipod!
    Lately however it's done something, that it has done before which is to suddenly 'remove' about 2000 tracks, it would go funny, crash and reset a few times, recharge with the plug and it was fine again, the tracks 'reappeared'.
    Now it seems when it happened this recent time, 3000 tracks went and I was left with about 000. So i tried formatting everything cause it just wouldn't rectify itself, then I chose to reload the firmware but everytime I tried to connect it to my laptop it would say my player wasn't connected.
    I have recently baught a new laptop with Windows 7 and even without the software it detects it fine and I think I could just drag music over to it now. BUT - It only has 50mb of memory! Plsu MP3 Recovery Tool and online detection firmware thingy justy doesn't think my player is connected or says cannot update firmware on windows 7?
    So my questions?are - how do i fix it's Is my memory fried, would it be worth getting out the old laptop? Where do i go if i want to repair it's Even if it detects it in XP, the software doesn't detect the player.
    Can anyone shine any light here? Am I forced to buy another Creative product or do I jump ship?

    If the XP computer has WMP installed it may not detect the player (the firmware file) It works best on XP /SP2 WMP0 installed. The issue with WMP is a sticky in the MP3 players forum.

  • Creative Zen Vision M 30gb and Vista.

    Is there a way to get a Creative Zen Vision M 30gb to work on a Vista computer? It will save me buying my son a new MP3 player. Thanks.

    I've been in touch with Creative support for over a week now but so far without success. Every time I download links they suggest I still can't access Creative Media Explorer, I just keep getting this error message:-
    "The Creative Media Explorer that is compatible with this device is not installed. Please reinstall the application and try again"
    This has included deleting all previously installed Crteati've files as well as downloading in a 'Clean Boot'. I've also rebooted my Zen Vision M.
    At this rate I'll have to bin the Zen and look at an ipod:manmad:

  • Zen Vision:M 30GB recognition problems...Big t

    Hi, 2 days ago i ran into a problem with my Zen. I had to charge it, as the battery was low and had to put some new music on it.. I plugged it into the USB port on my Laptop, where all of it's software is installed. The Zen wasn't recognized. Instead of the charging screen it normally started up with, it started up with the play screen(the screen it shows when a song is playing). I looked at the battery icon in the top right corner, and it wasn't doing anything. I turned the Zen off and started it up again. Nothing changed. I restarted my computer. Nothing changed. I shut down my computer and started it back up again. Nothing changed.
    I took it to my desktop computer, a Compaq, and tried it there. It worked, but not how i was expecting it to work. The battery icon started flashing with the little lightning bolt, acknowledging that it was charging. But the play screen was still there. The odd thing with this is, i left the player to charge for several hours. When i came back, the Zen was in some form of idle shut-down. The screen was black, except for the battery icon with the lightning bolt. Oddly enough, he battery bar hadn't filled up anymore than when i left it. Upon unplugging the player though, the Zen turned off. When i turned it back on, the bar had filled up more. It wasn't fully charged though.
    I plugged the cable back into it, and this time, the battery icon WASN'T charging. It just had the play screen on. It wasn't doing ANYTHING this time. Frustrated, i went out and bought the wall charger, and now i have a full battery. But it doesn't solve why my computer won't recognize my player.
    Today, i un-installed the software that came with the player and re-installed it. It didn't do anything. I installed the software on my desktop computer, and THAT didn't work either. So i came to the website here and used the trouble-shoot guide. That didn't help, and this is where my problem differs from the other posters here who have recognition problems:
    Back to my laptop: I have Windows Service Pack 2. I installed Windows Media Player . I went to the Device Manger, like the trouble-shoot guide said to. The kicker: Windows Portable Devices is NOT, i repeat NOT in my Device Manager. Neither does the Creative player either. I clicked on "The player does not appear in Device manager". That link showed me a diagram of a desktop computer, so went back to my desktop computer. I did everything above mentioned, and Windows Portable Devices is not in the device manager of my desktop computer either. Further reading the trouble-shoot guide, i could NOT locate "Other Devices" or "Unknown Devices" in my Device Manger on either desktop or laptop. There's nothing "Creative" related or "Zen" related at all in any of the Device programs.
    I don't know what to do. All of the trouble-shoot guides don't discuss my issue at all. Everything is "If an MP3 player is reported working properly in Device Manager, but it is not detected or listed in Windows Media Player or Creative Media Explorer..."
    Mine isn't even detected in Device Manager. My Device Manager has nothing regarding my Zen or Windows Portable Devices.
    I'm thinking about messing with it in Recovery mode, but i don't want to erase everything i have on here, just to have my player still not work. I'm going to try messing with this at my friend's house to check the cable and the player there too.
    But any help regarding my situation would be greatly appreciated. This is driving me crazy.

    I tried my uncle's Zen Vision: M 30GB on my laptop and strange things happened. My laptop recognized the player as an unknown device and said i needed to install the MTP driver. I did that, and upon doing so, my laptop recognized my Uncle's player as a Portable device, allowing me to transfer songs to his player. But it STILL doesn't recognize MY player. Email support says i have to send it in for repairs, but i don't know...
    Any luck with you?

  • Creative ZEN Vision:M 30gb, Can't dock it....tried everything....Help

    Hello , Is there someone out there who knows alot about docking this Zen Vision:M 30GB. I have tried everything by Creative support. I've been working on it for over a month now. The player works fine but when I plug it in to my PC. Nothing happens. I have all updates and I have Windows XP pro. It seems like a driver issue. My Little Zen V has no problem docking, It docks fast , 2seconds everthing opens up nicely. ??????thanks for taking the time to read and write....Message Edited by Wasssupdutch on 03-26-200702:53 PM

    Have you solved the problem? If so how? My VM has docked perfectly until I upgraded from USB to USB2. Every other USB device works fine but PC no longer sees the VM. The new hardware wizard pops up and demands a driver and isn't satified by the installation CD. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no success. Anybody any clues?Thanks.

  • Creative Zen Vision:M 30gb LCD Broken (full of white stripes) (picture includ

    Hi.
    So I bought my player around christmas, so it has only been used for about a month. At that time it's been on a everyday use and it has been used to watch high quality videos daily.
    So about an hour ago I took it from my jacket's (inside) pocket (I keep it there while I move because it's a loose pocket and doesnt apply that much pressure to the player as it would get in jeans' pockets.
    I put it on and to my surprise the lcd screen had white lines all over it. This really seemed weird, mainly because of it's short lifespan which it has been on my hands, it hasn't received any kind of a beating from dropping it or something like that.

    (There's a creative promotional video playing. The white sharp-like thing about in the middle is a wave hitting the shore)
    I already sent an email to the shop where I purchased it telling the story and asking that what is my options at this stage.
    P.S: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/440763 this guy seemed to have the same problem.
    What do you think?Message Edited by MKujap on 0-24-200702:34 AM

    Hi.
    So I sent an email to the store and they replied that they replace the ones which have those kind of white stripes all over the screen (every second pixel is working and every second is all white) but not the ones where the glass has broke and the fluids have come out.
    I went to the store and the guy in there said that they wouldnt replace it as there was a small crack on the right lower corner of the screen and that the fluids have come out from there. You can see that little crack on the picture and there is only little (and I mean) little fluid come out of the crack. I didn't even noticed that there was any of the fluids on the screen, it just seems to be a little crack, nothing more.
    I wonder if the standard year warranty applies for this situation? (see the photos on the first post)

  • Creative Zen vision M 30gb prob

    hi. the other day i hooked up my zen with a 3.5mm jack to twin photo lead/cable to my hifi. the sound i was getting was good, but not loud, so i started experimenting witht the leads at the back - this caused the player to turn off. there was a slight pop of a sound, but this wasn't that noticeable.
    since then, when i turn my zen on it shows the starting bit of 'creative' and 'Zen' but doesnt progress further. i've also had it on recovery mode and tried everything there and still no answer. just before the recovery mode screen appears it says something to do with the firmware, but when i try to work the firmware it cannot detect my player. nor does my media explorer detect the player - it only charges my player.
    also i think my warranty is of a year and i've had this for 8months or so. ?

    yeah i've tried the recovery tool, which tries to use the firmware and then doesn't detect the player.
    i also think i've buggered up my stereo doing this too.
    anyone?

  • Creative ZEN Vision: M 30GB not worki

    I have a the mp3 player mentioned above, and for some reason its not working. I did the mistake of using it under Windows Vista Ultimate, and now its not working under XP Professional SP2. The device manager keeps telling me that the device cannot start. But I can use the device as it has some songs in it, and I just can't put more songs in it. At this point I am willing to do anything that may fix it, but I don't want to delete the videos, and songs I have in there. Can anyone please help me?Thank you. Stuserver.

    I will refer you to this post by Catherina (Thank you!!!!)? Follow the directions carefully, and a Format means that all the stuff on the hard dri've will be erased (Except for the internal software needed to run the player)?and make sure to upgrade your firmware if the player works properly on your computer after the format. http://forums.creative.com/creativel....id=5530#M5530

    If it still will not turn on then, it is possible there is a problem with your player. It would be best to contact Customer Support in that case (check the "Support" folder of the installation CD for contact details).

  • Creative Zen Vision: M 30GB Video Upload Tutor

    I understand the concept of upload vids to my MP4 player but just how do I go about copying DVDs to my hard-dri've then to my device, any tutorials would be much appreciated. I only really want to put a couple of episodes of Jackass, Wildboys or Dirty Sanchez on, and maybe a couple of free music video discs I've got with a couple of Victory Records CD's I've bought previously. I've tried many online links I've managed to copy a DVD to my hard-dri've using '**bleep*' which I was reccomended to use, just don't know if I have to convert it. Any advice, information, links, suggestions much appreciated. Thanks all. Josh.Message Edited by Dale-CL on 0-9-2007 05:0 PM

    It is illegal in the US and many other countries CL operates in to break the encryption on a DVD, which is what the software you mentioned does. We cannot allow discussion of illegal DVD ripping on this forum, sorry.

  • Firmware Problem Creative Zen Vision : M 30

    Hello
    I switched my Creative Zen Vision : M 30gb on today to find a firmware problem screen.
    I tried to dock it with my PC but it was not working.
    Tried using the reset button but it doesnt work
    Tried going into recovery mode to reload the firmware but when i try to put the update on its says my player is not connected.
    I tried using the MP3 recovry tool which recognizes my player but then when it tries to install the firmware it says it is not connected.
    The firmware it is trying to put on says it for the 60gb model, would this stop it from reconizing my player?
    It says it for a DVP-HD0004 but on the back of mine it says it is a DVP-HD0003
    Could anyone find the right software because i cant find it's
    Michael

    The first step is to do a cleanup >reboot on the player if that don't work? then while connected uninstall thru Device Manager,reboot computer then plugin to have Windows find & reinstall the player, if that? doesn't work then format,cleanup>reboot player to see if that solves the problem. loosing files is a last resort . Whatever you do DO NOT choose RELOAD FIRMWARE as you don't have recognition from the computer & can not reload it. RELOAD firmware ERASES the firmware making the player useless until it can be reloaded. Link for resue/recovery access on player? http://forums.creative.com/creativel...ap&thread.id=3
