20 Most Recent Creative Labs MuVo Micro N200 MP3 Player Questions & Answers


Maybe it's time for you to upgrade to a new mp3 player. I guess the regular one you have right now is probably old. If not old, try to see if you can get the manufacturer that owns the product to see if they can fix the issue. If they are not able to assist, then maybe you can troubleshoot it.

It can also be caused by transferring DRM (Digital Rights Management) encoded media files via the drag and drop method. It is recommended that you use the drag and drop method to transfer audio files that are not encoded with DRM. If in doubt, use either Creative MediaSource Organizer or Windows Media Player to transfer your files.
To resolve this difficulty, we recommend that you format the player and transfer the content again. You can also download and install the latest firmware, and select the Format Data Area option during firmware update.
To format a MuVo player, connect it to a USB port on your PC. Open the Windows Explorer, and locate the Removable Drive listing and right click on it. Select Format, and choose FAT instead of FAT32 or NTFS. After the formatting is complete, make sure that you stop your player before disconnecting it from your PC (see above)
To update or reload the firmware for a MuVo player, select the model of your player from below.

Make sure you have media player 11
If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
Download recovery tool off creative's website.
go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix
If that doesn't fix it try the USB cable

Did you format it properly?

Usually MP3 Players are to be formatted with the FAT32 File System. This can be easily done on Windows.
Simply connect the Mp3 Player to your computer via the USB. Then Windows should be able to detect it just fine. Go to My Computer and right clock on the new device (that is the MP3 Player) and select "Format".
Format as FAT32 and try again.

PS: You may want to backup all data (if that is possible) before you attempt this Format thing.

Try searching again using Google, using BT 9843, but when you look down the results ignore the two letters and see if you can find an IC which is the same numbers, even if it has different letters on the front. Those letters could be just the makers letters, with the device made by different makers.

If the brightness is all the way down, simply turn it up.

If not this indicates an issue with the device and you should take it to your local tech repair shop
