Re: creative, zen nano 512 mb

Try this:

  1. Take the battery out of the player.
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause button.
  3. While holding the Play/Pause button, plug it into the computer.
  4. Continue holding the Play/Pause button for ten seconds, until Windows brings up the "Found New Hardware" dialog (Player Recovery Device).
  5. Allow Windows to install the driver, then attempt to reload the firmware.
Be particularly sure that the firmware you are trying to load is the correct firmware for your particular device.

well it shouldnt play the first song in the folder. it should automatically play the song where you left off. and when you are changing the EQ, make sure that you are pressing in the selector key. (the key at the bottom to the right of the volume control keys) as it may take a while to adjust to your volume settings

Music wont play.

You may have formated the mp3 and there by erased the firmware that allows it to play as a stand alone mp3 player.

there doesn't seem to be support for vista but the link for the firmware and update is here. this will at least let you use it as an mp3 player again

Maybe your mp3 player is not being recognised by your computer or program your using to put music on.
I really have almost no idea how to solve this,but try plugging it in to another usb port, or reinstalling it on your computer again with an installation cd it came with?

Hope I Helped You.

Good Luck And Kind Regards,

Won't turn on

Well, if you are new to the creative zen Nano plus, you may not have figured out how to turn it on. hold the play/pause button until the mp3 lcd screen lights up and that should work. if this is not the case i am sorry i cant help, but i also have a creative zen Nano Plus so i could find out for both of our benefits. i hope i helped!

My mp3 player is broen HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

I`ve had the same problem twice, it seems the player erases the whole firmware when this happens. You can fix this by plugging it to your computer in recovery mode, this will allow you to reinstall firmware.(Search google for zen nano plus recovery mode to find instructions.)

Zen Nano 512 MB

Recommend you take a look at this Creative MP3 PLayers FAQ site first, it has a lot of info. BTW, I have the Nano (but not Plus) and I think the reset-switch hole they refer to is next to the USB connector on mine.
