View Full Version : Crash trying to send MP3 to my Creative Zen Microphoto
4th May 2007, 11:30
Using Winamp 5.33 everything worls fine.
Using Winamp 5.34 when I try to transfer MP3 files to my Creative Zen Microphoto (drag'n'drop to media library window, then "sync") Winamp crash!
Other functions (like browsing or playing MP3's) seems to works fine too with Winamp 5.34.

Hi. Please see Known Bugs (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=156839#534)
Alas, it is a known 5.34-specific bug (PlaysForSure Devices crashing on transfer/sync) which is already fixed for 5.35, coming soon.
If you follow the "info" link via the Known Bugs thread, then you'll find instructions for either downgrading back to 5.33 until 5.35 is released, or using the ml_pmp/pmp_p4s dll's from 5.33 with 5.34.

Ok, but my Creative Zen Microphoto has no PLaysForSure BIOS.
Are you sure the crash I see it's because the same problem?

Well, it depends on what the firmware revision is.
I've got a Creative Zen Micro, using firmware v1.x, and therefore it uses the pmp_njb.dll interface.
However, there's an option on Creative's site to upgrade the firmware to the latest v2.x revision, which then makes the player PlaysForSure compatible, and therefore it will use the pmp_p4s.dll interface instead.
I don't experience any crashes when transferring files, because my Zen is using pmp_njb, not pmp_p4s. However, CraigF (beta team & forum admin) has a Zen Micro with 2.x firmware, using pmp_p4s, and he was getting a crash every time.
WE could only reproduce the crash for PlaysForSure (P4S) devices, not for Creative NJB, iPod, ActiveSync, or generic usb devices.
5.35, coming soon, fixes the p4s device crash bug.

Scroll down to "Access Over 2 Million Songs with the Widest Range of Online Music Stores", which has a Microsoft PlaysForSure logo next to it :-)
