Sounds like you have the settings set to turn off the back lite to save battery power, go to the first menu and scroll all the way down and there should be a settings menu it's in there to tuen off ater x number of mins

Hi My player is Creative ZEN MOZAIC EZ 100 - 4GB It is not able to recharge and when connects to PC there appears scaning Disk... and nothing else happends long time.

I've had similar issues with the Zen Microphoto, usually the case is a defective cable. Even though the PC sees the device that does not mean that the cable is connecting properly. Try using a different mini USB 2.0 cable. That fixed all of my issues with my Zen Microphoto's connection and inability to charge.

Great site by the way - really helpful
