Creative NOMAD Jukebox Zen Xtra.(60GB)

by hopeful0102 / January 1, 2010 12:54 AM PST

My os is Linux Fedora 10. Can I buy a compatible installation disc for the Nomad Zen xtra, or is there another way to set this up so that I can use it. Any help would be appreciated. It originally belonged to my son, who, unfortunately has 'windows' installed

If I am not mistaken, Fedora is the free version of Red Hat, therefore can be downloaded from Distrowatch on one of the multiple repositories. Another way, some Linux Magazines comes with Linux samples/copies, usually Fedora, SuSE, Mandriva or one of the *buntus.

A good Multimedia Linux distro is Mandriva, is based on RPMs like Red Hat/Fedora but uses URPMI as a packet installer once you set the repositories if you Google Easy URPMI and follow the Wizard.

I misread your post.

My son uses an iPod and uses Mandriva Linux. All he does is plugs it on the USB port and becomes an External USB data drive. You can browse through it and copy files to it.

Before you remove it, if you use Mandriva, right click on the Dolphin file manager at the USB drive and Unmount or down by the Star and click on the USB Device icon, if you hover the mouse toward the right a black arrow will show, click it and Unmount it. I am not sure about GNOME since I am a KDE type of person.

The point is, Unmount it as a precaution. It happen to me on the passed the file system got corrupted after I pulled the USB cable off.
