Talking Finally Solved!


It's done!
Some weeks ago there was a untouched an not firmware upgraded or formated Creative Jukebox Zen NX at eBay in almost new condition and I won the auction!
All original Tracks were on the device - I'm so lucky!

So I took the player apart and attached the HDD to a 2.5" to IDE Adaptor. So as I'm not a Linux User I just set up a virtual Ubuntu machine in VMware an connected the NX drive as a second drive.

I prevoiusly downloaded the zenrecovery Python scripts and startet them in a shell.

And wow! It just did what I always wanted. It copied all the tracks off the Creative HDD. Even tracks that were deleted and not shown by the player itself.

So I now got all the 59 Beijing Tracks in untouched quality @ 320Kbps with all ID-tags and so on.

Though thanks to everyone who was involved in this.

If anyone wants to do the same here are the python scripts:
