Bought this one second hand recently, installed the software as per manual but my computer (xp professional) but the computer just does not recognize the player: In device manager it says Nomad Jukebox Xtra with the big yellow question mark.
Inserted the cd, and tried to search for drivers no luck - whatever I try to install the driver - it keep saying cannot install driver.
Tried on my friends computer and it worked - seems that it uses C:\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\wpdusb.sys - so copied this file over but it does not recognize this as a driver.
Any ideas?
I am out of any ideas  and pulling my hair out - hence 500 points!

is your friends pc on the same software level? sp 2?
otherwise, try running sfc /scannow from the run box,
or try a repair install  :  http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Sorry for delay...
I don't think a reinstall would help, my copy of Windows XP is only a few weeks old...

In the meantime I got it so far that my computer recognizes the player as a Windows Portable device - I had to upgrade to Windows Media Plaer 10.

So can now drag-and-drop files. However cannot connect still with the player using the Creative Software (Nomad Organiser).  Suppose I ve got better chances  to find the answer on a specific forum.

Thanks for your time.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

For all who run inot the same problems: it appeared that the software installed on the Zen Creative only works with if your computer has Windows Media Player 10 installed.  Thanks for those who took the efort to reply.
