Windows Media Player 11 with Creative Zen Vision: M

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Judge Amy Host, Jun 2, 2006.

  1. I have a Creative Zen Vision: M portable music player which stores all my
    music on and I am running low on disk space on my computer so I want to be
    able to have all my music on my Vision: M and have Windows Media Pleyer
    connect to that for its Library. Is this possible at all? At the moment it
    can't even find the MP3 player when I go to add the music files on the MP3
    player to the library.

    I had the smae problem. To fix do this. Plug in your Vision:M, go to device
    manager/Portable Devices. Right click on the Zen and uninstall it. Unplug
    the Zen and plug it back in. It should then reinstall the Zen and should
    work.

    That fixed it for me, expect the Media Player 11 crashes everytime that the
    Zen is connected.

    Oh well.

  3. Have tried this twice but it still wont let me use the media files on the Zen
    Vision: M for the media library in WMP11. It wont even play them with WMP11
    without importing them onto the computer first which is what I want to avoid
    as I am low on disk space.

    Someone from the device team could confirm for sure, but as far as I am
    aware what you are trying to do is unsupported. WMP can play back local
    files or files on standard storage devices, but portable devices aren't
    supported for local-computer playback. =)

  5. I think that the team should try to make this feature work for the full
    version of WMP11 if possible as I don't like the creative software for this
    and really want to stay with WMP.
