Thread: Zen Micro KEEPS FREEZING

  1. #1

    Zen Micro KEEPS FREEZING!!!

    I just purchased a Zen micro after doing tons of research and it keeps freezing when I try to add albums through explorer. I have the most up to date firmware, run XP sp 2 and am very cpu literate. I have followed the directions to the T. I use regular Microsoft explorer and after having it freeze when adding multiple albums, i said hey, maybe its just TOO much at once (3 albums). So I drag and drop ONE album at a time, with explorer and my directory for albums as the only open folders and the only things running... I have the new WMP 0 also and have just had it freeze up in during that too... I have perfectly tagged mp3's and it will just sit on one mp3 for 5 minutes then say its being used by another program/non existant etc.. which is not the case as it has happened on MULTIPLE albums. I have Reformatted COUNTLESS times.... I am at my wits end here and on the verge of giving up on my micro... PLEASE HELP

    bceezy---I feel your frustration. When I first started adding tracks to my micro on my desktop, it was freezing as well even though I was using SP2 and WMP0...when I switched to the same music library on my tabet PC (w/ USB 2.0 vs . on my desktop), things were much smoother with no further freezing. Could hardware on your system be playing a role?

    I do not think so, I have a great machine i keep in tip top condition i have 6 usb . ports, with one mouse plugged in. I know it isnt the song that makes it freeze because I was able to add one that was giving me a problem thru WMP 0.

    Let me make a correction, i have CLEANED UP not reformatted... I have not put much on and there shouldnt be a need for it...Message Edited by bceezy on 0-4-2005 04:26 AM

    Hmm... I'm wondering if there may be issues with the USB . and the micro...Anyone out there having difficulties with non-2.0 USB connections in firmware-upgraded micros?

    Did a quick search and found another thread that explores this further. It seems that other users of the firmware upgraded micro had freeze-ups when transfering files via USB .; when adding a USB 2.0 card to their systems, the micro synched well. Check out the thread Zen Micro Firmware 2.

    I see, so upping to a usb 2.0 card is the solution...

    Okay,

    Yes, upgrading to a USB 2.0 helped me, but now it just freezes faster than it did with the USB .. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite (USB 2.0). And it's always on the DOCKED Screen with both arrows black.

    HEY CREATIVE!

    If anybody is reading these forums, people need help here, and they're getting really frusterated. Let's get a new firmware out so people can actually <EM>use</EM> their MP3 players! (There's and awesome idea!)
