There is a very tiny reset hole on the left side...stick a pin in the hole to reset the player.

I have had my creative zen for a couple of years, but haven't used it in a while. I plugged it into my computer and it doesn't recognize it any more. It says creative zen is not connected. what do I need...


First, reset the music player by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds.
After resetting the player, connect it to the Computer and restart the Computer to check if it's recognized.

If the Computer still doesn't recognize the music player then open the Device Manager by pressing the "Windows logo key+R key" simultaneously and typing devmgmt.msc in the Run dialog box and clicking OK. In the Device Manager, check if there is any exclamation mark visible, if there is any then right click on it and uninstall it. After uninstalling all the devices with exclamation mark, restart the Computer with the player remain connected to the Computer.

This will make the Computer recognize the player.

I can't sync my Zen Plus w/ WMP


I ended up going into the recovery mode by pressing the play button and power,,, release the play. It displays the option of Reformmatting and or Reloading O/S. When you do this the computer USB didn't recognize the device. I found that if you use the creative zen recovery tool you can depress the devices return button which allows the software to recognize zen. The recovery tool promted firmware load,, load was successful. For some reason the player went dead after that but this morning I disconnected and reloaded songs. I thought this a.m. I was going to be back to square one but apparently I was tired from the struggle.

Getting out of recovery mode


The recovery tool mentioned above is not designed for the sleek photo. You need to download the firmware for the sleek photo from creative's site. Now we need to get your player recognized to get the firmware loaded. If you have Windows Media Player 11, it needs to be removed. Also remove WMP runtime. After that, restart the pc and your player should be recognized. You can then double click on the firmware program to run it. It might say something like, this firmaware is already installed...do you want to reload it? Click yes to reload.

I had the same problem with my sleek photo. Once I got rid of WMP and the runtime everything worked like a charm.

Creative zen


After three months of trying and trying in many computers, following many, many procedures found all over the Internet, my Creative Nomad has accepted the firmware and has borned again.
What I did?
1. Connected the Nomad on a computer with Windows XP and Windows Media Player 9, that never has been touched by a creaive device.
It recognizes the device but can´t find any update to the drivers,
2. Updated Windows Media Player 9 to Windows Media Player 10,
3. Restart the computer
4. Connect the Nomad and the computer recognizes the device and autamtically search and found updated MPT drivers.
5. Run the firmware update program "ZenXtraP4SAudible_PCFW_LB_2_10_03 (Creative Zen Xtra PlaysForSure Firmware 2.10.03)"
6. Finally the magic button always has been disabled was enabled so start reloading firmware.
And now the Nomad is working in windows vista.

The difference between the computer where the firmware works and the others is that this has never had media player 10 or 11 and never has installed creative drivers.
Hope this can be useful to smoeone, somewhere, sometime.....

Go to recovery mode, and do a disk clean up. If that doesnt work, then you might have to format it.

Did you reset it properly? To reset your zen, put a pen head in the hole under the power button for 20 seconds
