    ok i was playing a game and i wanted some music so i opened up my play center and it froze the system wjen it tryed to access my mp3 list. so i restarted adn i noticed that the HDD with the mp3's and everything that is not a program had disapered. i restarted and it did not detect one in the boot up so i freaked and made sure that all of a cableing was ok and it was so i restarted it agian and it was back. i would like to know if anyone knows why this might have happened and if so how to stop it from ever happeneing agian, and if it is a problem with the HDD it windows

    Creative Play-Center?

    That's the problem right there...unless you have a Creative Nomad Jukebox, don't use it, it's not worth the pain, Winamp is much better and alot more universal, get winamp...

    I'm not sure about this, but yeah, rebooting fixes alot of stuff...

    You can fix alot more things by leaving the computer off for a few too, it's just once of those things...someone here might know, but that's my best guesses :D

    It was just a loose connection......a loose connection can cause alot of weird thing to happen. I have had that happen to me before to so dont worry about it....its not a big deal! and it could of had to do with the player to......I like winamp as well....very easy to use :cool:
