Default Zen Neeon: "No Music" Problem + Solution

Can someone make this a sticky thread? This info has been posted here under another long thread but I thought its best to put this in one sensible thread.

I recently gave my 6GB Zen Neoon to a friend. Before I did that I figured I would format it. After the format it showed "No music" even after copying over some music files. I could use the voice recorder to record/playback but no music would ever show up. Reformatting with different options did not help.

It turns out that formatting under Windows 7 (and Vista) does not work. What ever it does to the file system leaves the Neeon unable to read any music copied to the drive.

Formatting as FAT32 under WIndows XP works perfectly.

Just thought I would share as this took me a week to figure out!

Actually i found a way! Format to Fat (Default) and not Fat32. It works.

BTW, mine is only 1Gig. I dont think there's any difference, but u know, just in case.

The difference is that FAT16 only allows up to 4GB large partitions on Windows NT and newer (only 2GB partitions on Win98 and such). That's no issue for your 1GB player, of course.

Best would be to format the player with the official SD Formatter - it automatically chooses the correct format for the given memory size.
