wow, theres alot of these today, just close all your programs, disconnect and turn off your player, then reconnect it and see if it then recognises it, if not restart both your player and your computer. If THAT doesnt work, check out some of the other solutions I put on the other thread for people haveing similar problems.

hehe, by the way, nice wording for the title *chuckle*

look, DONT use WMP for the moment, dont even have it running when you connect the player, wait for the box that asks you want you want to do with the device once it connects, then click the media explorer.

Well the only choices are wmp and explorer. When i press the creative explorer, it doesnt even open. The zen doesnt show it being docked and wmp isnt open.

it doesnt open at all? well that probably means the actual program is screwing up, remove it and reinstall it, if it doesnt open at all its probably corrupted, and have you installed the 'creative media toolbox' and all the other stuff aswell?
like i said, if the media exploere isnt even opening, its a fault with the program. reinstall or repair it.

just reinstall/repair media explorer and see if that fixes your problem.
Otherwise your best just reinstalling EVERYTHING on the software cd that came with the player.

yeah i found that, mine had about 6, um.....either get the one with the biggest file size, or yeah, just add all of them and the program in the DVD ripping guide, AutoGK combines them automatically, takes a while though, so start it up and go for a looong walk.

OK thnx man. Well the thing is encoding right now but iam noticing that it is making alot offiles. I guess some are for audio and video. Which one do i transfer Do i transfer all when its done in wmp11. Also is wmp11 good for everything? Such as video music and stuff. And u mean by the biggest file as in.. is the biggest file the whoe movie iam trying to transfer or just a clip. Should i have added all the files?

just let it do its thing, as long as you have the files from the dvd off the disk, and are converting it SHOULD work, if not, consult the DVD ripping guide
