My Zen locked when I turned it on. It wouldn't play the track the screen was on so I pressed the reset button and turned it on again. It was then still locked on the same track so I tried turning it off which then froze as it was shutting down. After another reset it went through the rebuild screen then locked again. I then used the above fix (pin in reset, then hold play and power switch down). Taking me into the kind of bios screen I formatted the contents. Then added my library again. It's now working fine.
This is the second Zen I've had because the first one had the same problem so I took it back without trying to fix it. Both times the problem occured when I had my Zen plugged into my car stereo auxiliary jack whilst switching the ignition on in my car. I can't understand why this would cause the problem but I'll avoid doing that in future.

I also had the same problem last week where my Zen was stuck on one song. I tried resetting it umpteen times, but it always went back to that song. I connected to the computer and went under
the Creative Zen application and had to format my whole Zen. I lost everything I had, but it was unstuck and I just downloaded everything again except that song. No trouble since then. Hope this helps.

Yeah, um try a new cord. it works with any camera cord. Musicwise you can't add files by copy/paste you have to use the creative libary thing that came on a disk with your creative. also you may need to replace your battery.

You don't have enough room on your drive to do this. I had the same problem. I took all my router ports off and connected just my creative vision player only and it worked. Computer system was over loaded.

I sent mine in to Creative, they replaced the screen, I bought a leather case from them 2 years ago, a have dropped it many times since and it really protects the player.

I had a similar problem and after a bit of tooling around, I was able to get this to work for me. There are a couple of steps. Basically the problem is that the memory card wasn't properly disconnected from the player at some point so it's reading filesystem errors on it as a result. (Kinda like pulling out a USB key from a computer before you've "safely removed hardware". While your computer will tolerate this, your zen will not.) Here's how to safely remove disconnect your SD card after copying files to it. 
1. First, if possible, reformat your SD card. This is not critical, but is a good practice so that you can sart from scratch with a totally fresh card.
2. Next, plug in your SD card to your player and turn it on. Navigate to the memory card menu, and place the memory card in "removable disk". 
3. Plug the Zen into your computer, and go to "my computer". There should be a new disk called "removable disk" which is now shown along the rest of your hard drives. (Kinda like when you plug in a USB key drive. You're essentially doing the same thing here.)
4. Copy your files to the "removable disk". 
5. VERY IMPORTANT: When you are done, right-click on the removable disk and choose "eject" fromt the menu that comes up. When a popup appears saying that your hardware is safe to remove, you can unplug the zen from the computer. 
6. Now navigate to your memory card using your zen player, and choose "browse". It should come up now without any error.

plug your zen into pc usb. then go to start menu, find the folder containing your zen drive. You can copy and plaster or drag and drop your files into your zen here this way. If your pc is not recognizing your zen, then make sure you have the lastest updated driver for zen on your pc. This driver must be installed and up-to-date for your pc to recognize your zen

Before using Frostwire, understand that it is a very virus-prone site - make sure you have anti-virus software on your computer before trying to use. You can't transfer songs directly to your mp3 player through Frostwire, but you can download the songs into the "My Music" folder of your computer - you will have to go into the Frostwire Properties toolbox, and change your download folder from "Frostwire Downloads" to "My Music" in order to make this happen. Once the songs are downloaded onto your computer, open up Windows Media Player - use Windows Media Player to transfer the songs from your "My Music" folder to your Zen. (alternatively, you can change your Library --> Add to Library folders in Windows Media Player to include the "Frostwire Downloads" folder). Good luck - I could probably write an entire page elaborating on each sentence that I have given you here - but Fixya has word limits. :-) Let me know if you need extra help.

If you have tried the reset hole on the bottom, try the mp3 player recovery tool here.

I had this jumbled up problem as it wasn't splitting up the tracks ie I had 6 track ones lined up together which put the chapters out of sync.
The trick is to load each CD individually and immediately 'rename' each ie name of book, genre, CD1, CD2 etc.
Then you can drag and drop into the MP3 player and they will be in the correct order.
Worked for me anyway.

I might not be 100% sure this will work, but if you try sticking a pin / needle into the reset hole it should immediatley turn off and you should be able to turn it on again.
The same thing happened to me once, the blue light was on but the screen wouldn't come on and the computer wouldn't recognize it. I recommend you just try resetting it. If that doesn't work, then I'm sorry I couldn't help.
