My Creative ZEN Vision M is .. well. Dead.. complains about something like "hard disk error".. It is just over a year old, and has no warranty. I want another MP3 player (pref 20+ gigs, I have 30+g of music, and hate having to decide). So, if anyone has some reccomendations, that'd be lovely. My desktop computer is a PC that runs windows 2000. the ZEN doesn't "work" with it, and I believe iPods don't either. I think MediaMonkey can work with either.

I was bored at work today (I gotta stop doing that). I registered for the MS Pennsylvania Dutch bike tour (in addition to the City to Shore ride, my 4th year). I'm not sure what tempted me to register for that one, too, other than I've heard its a really nice ride. I'll need some donations to help me through them, the minimum for the Penn Dutch, and I'll try for 1000 again for the City to Shore (if I can pull it off, I failed last year).

I'm trying to learn Organic Chemistry, since I did so poorly in it. I really get annoyed that I didn't get it. So, I've decided to try to look it over. So far, I think I'm beginning to understand some of the basic concepts that eluded me before. We'll see how that turns out.

I'm going camping this weekend in Bear Mountain, NY. The weather will be a high of 37 tomorrow, 27 on Sunday.. Woo-hoo!

Is it possible to replace the drive in the Zen?

I have no idea how, or where I could get a replacement. The battery isn't even replaceable.

Ok.. now it's just being weird.. I pickedi t up, looked to see if there was a way to open it (I can't find it). I turned it on, and.. it let me erase the firmware (without saying disk error). I shook it first, just to see if it was okay (and something inside rattled like there's something loose (could be the corner of the case that is not there)). Anyhow.. I've, in theory, managed to upgrade the firmware.. And I'm currently in the process of uploading all of the songs that were there before. Maybe all it needed was a good shake (rattle and roll?) Anyhow.. YAY!

Sometimes all it takes to fix something is a good thump. Welcome to the Woody Allen School of Small Appliance Repair :-)

Okay, I did some checking, so I'll answer my own question.

The hard drive looks easy to replace.

YaY!.. I may not need it now, but considering this isn't the first time I've had problems with it, a new HD would prolly be something useful. I still have no idea how to open the thing. but it _may_ be working again! (who knows.. it's just weird).
