Angry Creative Zen Micro and Windows 7

I have a Zen Micro 5GB MP3 player and love it, only problem is it only works on systems that run Windows XP or less. Well, I have Windows 7 now and cant find a single driver that works for it. I have downloaded probably 10 drivers thus far and nothing works. The player itself shows "docked" but it cant be found in windows explorer anywhere.

Can anyone help with this issue, maybe know of a compatible driver I can download to make windows explorer recognize this device? Any help will be awsome, thank u.

What version of Win 7 do you have? If you have Pro or Ultimate, you could download XP mode from MS that should work with those XP drivers.

I have Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Can you please tell me how I can go about doing this? Will downloading xp mode affect the rest of my computer and can I go back to 7 mode at any time? Thank u.

XP mode is a virtual machine that runs a fully licensed copy of XP. It doesn't affect your Win 7 installation but allows you to run software that works with XP but not Win 7.
