Zen micro firmware on tou

And what about porting zen micro firmware on touch? Zen touch is victim of a very lite firmware... when I say very lite, it's really lite :
no sleep timer fonction, a (only) 4 band equalizer, not detectable as a hard disk by the PC...
But I think that, since December, Creative has really had the time to correct this enormous lack, isn't it's

Okay, okay, It's just a question of money, but, It's not all good for creative, it doesn't make them a good advert, when I speak with my friend, I tell them that, if they ad 50? to their price, theu'd have an Ipod, with a really usefull and full of fonction firmware...
And a second point is that, most of MP3 players consummer are student, (just as me) so they don't have enough money toi buy more than one player...

  • Next Zen Micro Firmware Suggesti

    I thought it would be a good idea to have a section where people can put in their ideas for new zen micro firmware updates, as for myself i have 2
    . when you select "random play all" from the DJ section it sets your micro to play in shuffle mode, then afterwards when u play music it shuffles the songs you had selected yourself. I think it would be a good idea to add to the next update when "random play all" is off, and one has selected the music on their own it resets to normal mode.
    2. the Creative Jukebox Zen had some EQ features that the Micro does not have. It was able to speed up and slow down songs by 2x. as well it had some EQ settings to make songs sound like they were being played in different enviroments, such as bathroom, concert hall, living room and such. I think the next firmware update should have these features included.
    Anyone else got some ideas? :P

    No, that's not true.
    Where exactly did you read that? Do you have a link?

  • Zen Micro Firmware Ha

    Hi there!
    Does anyone knows if there is any Zen Micro Firmware Hack avaliable out there. Not that I dislike the original one, bot I love hack around. I used to have Podzilla (a linux distro) on my IPod and would be nice if there was something similar for my ZM.
    Anyway, as a software developer, I could start coding something intereseting (what about a firmware that always use deep sleep? ), but to start, I really need some technical papers about zen's hardware and memory system, since reverse engenering the firmware would take much of my (:sigh busy time...
    See ya!

    It's illegal and probably not a good idea to discuss this here. You can however visit nomadness and see if there is anything on it. I have read people hacking their Zen Jukebox or Zens (not micro) but the hacks aren't that great, most of them only managed to change their menu screens but nothing major.

  • [Zen Micro] Firmware upgrade has bloc

    I'm upgrading my Zen Micro firmware from ..0 to 2.2.02 version right now, but it looks like the process has stuck. My processor seems not to be working, the progress bar is no more advancing and the arrows on my player are white. There's a message on the window that says "Rebooting your player. Please wait." But nothing actually happens. What should I do? If I plugged off my player, can I cause it any damage? Should I restart the upgrade? As the 'Close' button is available for clicking, I can assume the process is stoppable and its terminating shouldn't cause damages... can't I?
    Please, help me.
    Thank you for your suggestions.

    And no software will acknowledge mine since I stupidly upgrade to the 2 level firmware. I've been on a three-week merry go round with email customer service...they've even had me go into the registry of my computer (yikes!) but no solution.

  • Another question about the Zen Micro Firmware Upgr

    Hi there,
    I have just successfully installed the Creative Zen Micro Firmware .02.05 on my 5GB Zen Micro but I have a question regarding Windows Media Player. The Set up Sync button and some of the properties still appeared greyed out. I thought the upgrade would solve that problem.
    Any thoughts?

    As per the?BEFORE you post, READ THIS FIRST (FAQ) post, all downloads can be found at Nomadworld.com downloads.

  • Zen Micro Firmware 1.10.02 to 1.11.01 (issue with instructio

    This may seem a little picky. I had previously updated my Zen Micro to firmware .0.02. Now Creative has issues firmware ..0. All fine but my question is:
    The applicability instructions for ..0 state:<FONT face=Verdana size=>
    align=left>You can upgrade from Creative Zen Micro firmware .02.05 or earlier, or Zen Micro
    align=left>PlaysForSure? firmware 2.00.2 or later.
    So technically I cannot update from .0 to .. Does anyone know if there is a technical reasion or just an oversite in the instructions?

    It's a bit of an oversight. Creative had actually removed .0.02 from the website just days after it was released because we, the users, found it to be severely flawed. Those instructions were written as though it was never released.
    You can update to ..0 from .0.02 without a problem.Message Edited by dingus on 08-8-2005 06:08 AM

  • Zen Micro Firmware 2.20.05 with Audible suppo

    So I was checking out Audible.com to see what devices are listed and I noticed the Zen Micro was there. It was weird because non of the firmwares listed on Creative.com showed Audible Support. So I e-mailed Audible asking what firmware they tested out for the Zen Micro that supports Audible. So they e-mailed me back saying go to this website: <a href='http://www.audible.com/muvo_upgrade.html' target=_blank>www.audible.com/muvo_upgrade.html[/url] (yes it says muvo but that doesn't mean anything). Click on Creative Zen Micro or scroll all the way down. The link they gave was a download from their website as a file named: ZenMicroP4SAudible_2_20_05.zip Now it doesn't take a smart guy to notice that 2_20_05 is the firmware version of the file. And any firmware beginning with 2 is considered the PlaysForSure firmware if going by Creative's convention of firmware numbering.
    Only one problem. I dont have a Zen Micro to try it out. And its not even listed on Creative's support pages as a download.
    I'm curious and I'm sure many others here are as well, does this firmware fix the battery drain issue? Also does it have any new features or does it fix anything else?
    Direct link: <a href='http://download.audible.com/creative/ZenMicroP4SAudible_2_20_05.zip' target=_blank>http://download.audible.com/creative/ZenMicroP4SAudible_2_20_05.zip[/url]
    I checked the properties of the file and it is indeed made by Creative, not Audible.

  • ZEN MICRO : firmware history (in

    I'm offering here an overview of the Zen Micro firmware history, as it's impossible to get a full release history from the Creative download website
    Please do NOT use this thread to ask for firmware features (etc). Only to clarify what's IN the existing firmware versions, and what the relations are.
    Each version contains all improvements from the version it is based on. Note that I'm only mentioning the most interesting novelties per release (IMO). Check the actual release notes on the Creative download site, for official info.
    ps: I had this originally in a nice table, but then I discovered that the forum blocks html table tags :-(
    Generally speaking :
    v line of firmware works with all recent Windows versions, and requires you to install Micro-specific drivers on the pc before connecting the Micro. </LI>
    v2 line is so-called "PlaysForSure" (download + subscription) and works only on pc with Windows XP + Windows Media Player 0. You don't need to install any other driver.</LI>

    Also, was there any need to quote the entire first post? I can understand you're trying to emphasise a point but...
    Well, I quoted the entire first post in a rage of fury, so I did not think, I guess. Sorry!
    If you look at the Micro firmware in detail we mostly have two different firmware version, the MTP firmware that was promised, and some bug fixes. That's about all it amounts to.
    Yeah, I know - but it is so typical... The ratio between Micro/Touch updates is like ten to one... bloody ridiculous is what it is, anyway.

  • Zen Micro Firmware 2.00.12 not list

    I got FW v2.00.2 loaded up on my micro. If I wanted to update to a non-beta MTP firmware, which one should I go with?
    I'm guessing there isn't any firmware that matches my needs, is there? The download page only lists:
    Creative Zen Micro Firmware .02.05 (<FONT color=#222222 size=><B>2.0 MB</B>)
    Creative Zen Micro PlaysForSure Firmware 2..02 Beta Release (<FONT color=#222222 size=><B>2.33 MB</B>)
    <FONT color=#222222 size=>
    So I'm pretty much stuck with the one I got (ghost lines in volume meter and faulty "Lookup artist" function), right? And why isn't v2.00.2 listed anymore? Maybe to avoid confusion? What if someone was looking for the same as me? v2.00.2 is the version for them!Message Edited by noroom on 03-23-2005 09:9 AM

    Firmware version .02.05 is a PDE firmware and not a MTP firmware. Also, note that if you wanted to update to version .02.05, you will not be able to downgrade to MTP version 2.00.2 after that but you can go to the beta MTP version 2..02.

  • Zen Micro firmware update prob

    Hi everyone,
    I've got a problem trying to upgrading my Zen Micro Firmware. When it says that I have to wait while it's rebooting the player, nothing happens. When I do it manually, the firmware is still the old one. Does anyone know what I have to do?

    I too have exactly the same problem. Micro reboots once, then just sits there doing nothing. I have tried the on/off method ,as you said, it goes back to the old firmware. Having tried to load the update offline with no background programs running I still got the same fault (even leaving it for half an hour.) I have now given up as i am worried that it may corrupt the existing firmware. I have turned of the snooper setting as requested . I think that it shows signs that after the first reboot the computer is not recognizing the players USB. So it may be that after the st reboot the usb may need to be removed/reconnected. But i'm not going to take that chance as you will be losing power when trying to upgrade. Best way to corrupt a download on any item plugged to the USB is to remove it will been accessed.
    Still waiting for a reply from Creative.
    Having read threads about the new firmware upgrade I think were best to stay with the old one for a little while longer.

  • ZEN MICRO: firmware improvements suggesti

    Some suggestions and bug-signalations to improve firmware of Zen Micro. (actually I use fw .02.05): [*]play songs in a album not in alphabetical order, but using track number order, for me has more sense, do you? Because concept album, but all albums really, are betted listened in theway artist put their songs... I hope had been clear in my explanation.. [*]insert contacts and appointments direcly in ZenMicro without sincronize with Outlook...
    for other useful suggestions people post here!!!
    UP THE IRONS! :mrgreen:

    . Tracks do play in order of the tag track number, if queued by album.
    2. Fair enough.
    There are several petitions and wishlists already on the go, so it would probably be better to add your information to them. See Part 2 of the FAQ.

  • Zen Micro firmware help

    Last night my Zen micro locked on the "creative" screen. It wouldn't power up or down. So i removed battery, held the on button and placed the batery in. I navigated to the "reload firmware option" and selected it. How long does this process take? Its been at it for 20 mins only on "erasing firmware". Any ideas/help?

    It should only take a few seconds.
    If functions in rescue mode aren't working properly the player is faulty.

  • Zen Micro Firmware Upgrade 1.01.03: Problems when Downloading and Installing the Upgr

    Yesterday I downloaded the new firmware upgrade .0.03 to my computer without problems. I then attempted to open the upgrade and initiate transfer to my Zen Micro unit through my USB 2.0 cable. I kept getting a dialog box, informing me that there was an interference problem... So I shut down my Norton anti-virus and my Zone Alarm firewall, and tried again, and again, and again. I was unable to initiate the transfer program...
    I was about to contact you this evening for advice, but I decided to first switch my USB cable to another connector and try one more time. Surprise! It worked... A rather long connection, but the upgrade is now in my Zen Micro unit, just where it's needed...
    I've had my USB cable connected to what I believe is a USB 2.0 connection on my computer, and I often see the "not connected" dialog box. Each time this happens, I disconnect the cable from the Zen Micro unit, then reconnect it... Bells and whisltes sound, and I'm connected again, until a few minutes later I get the "not connected" dialog box yet again... Is this a normal procedure?
    Now, tonight I plugged the USB cable into what I've always considered to be a slower USB connection point... Mybe that's why the transfer took so long? But it stays connected indefinitely... no "not connected" dialog box.
    I've been having other transfer problems through the USB 2.00 connection point. I downloaded 23 tracks to my Zen Micro yesterday afternoon, and three of the tracks didn't make it... Frustrating as hell...
    I'd appreciate any comments from my peers, since everyone here has more experience than me...

    Try turning off the Media Sniffer feature from MediaSource and try updating the firmware again.

  • Zen Micro Firmware Not Reload

    I am trying to reload my firmware onto my Zen Micro 5GB but the firmware tool keeps asking me to connect the device. It is connected to the USB cable and my computer recognises it (i can access it through My Computer and it shows up in the device listings). The firmware tool doesn't recognise it though. Before I lost the firmware, the Zen Media Explorer also would not recognise it, even though the Media Source did. I don't know how to reload my firmware on to the player now.Can anyone help?

    I've had a look at some posts that state that roll back (or install) WMP0. However, I can't do that as my system won't let me. It states that WMP0 is incompatible with my Windows (XP Home SP2). It says to go to Details for further information, but this brings up a Windows webpage that is no longer present. I just can't figure out how to force the firmware to upgrade when the firmware program wont recognise that it is connected.
