Question about Creative Labs Zen Digital Media Player
Please advice me on what to do cause my 16GB zen was on recovery mode from the time i installed an updated firm ware.
You must give it the firmware upgrade from support.creative.com, or it will not be able to get out of this mode. Support.creative.com
Try another PC or another USB port
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged
Check for firmware update on Creative's website
Get Recovery Tool from Creative
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If all else fails, check with this guy:
