well i finally decided to splurge and do away with cds and go for an mp3. i bought a creative zen touch(20gb) and tried to use the install cd. the creative logo appears fashiously then the programs stalls. It doesnt exactly jam or be considered "not responding" (as in task manager) but it simply wont show any links or buttons that say install or anything except the "x" in the upper right and some left/right arrows that dont do anything. so i decided to manually install by exploring the cd. found the drivers, installed them successfully, they dont work. go to www.creative.com
and download the approapriate drivers for my op system (WIndows xp x64 edition), get them installed, they dont work. Do the same to install the NOMAD thing from creative, finally installed it, it dont work. BAH!!! NOTHING IS WORKING! I might also mention that when i plug my zen into the usb it does the "Duh-Ding!" sound and shows up on the task bar, then disappears when i click on it. Also it will not show up in MY Computer as a seperate drive or as a Creative Zen or anything. IT SHOWS NOTHING!!! Its as if god or zues or whoever doesnt want this stupid thing to work! why does god hate me? It makes me want to take up aetheism. i can feel it!
