Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player
Hello, I'm having a little problem with my Creative Zen V Plus. I was putting some music onto it one day and this little bubble popped up saying that the "device in USB port has malfunctioned and the computer no longer recognizes it". When I unplugged it it wouldn't turn on! And the battery was fully charged. Just to be sure, I plugged it back in to try to charge it and my computer won't recognize/charge it anymore. I've tried the reset button many times, I've tried all the solutions I've found for people with similar problems and nothing works! I want to try to find a way to fix it without taking it apart (I'm saving that as a last resort if possible).I never realized how amazing an MP3 player is until I had to go back to CD players...
Is there anything I can do or is this a lost cause?
Hi there, what i did was push and hold the reset button for about 30 seconds and then vuala, it reset and still had all of my stuff on it. to the guy who the reset button didnt work you might want to try two or three times, otherwise i dont know what else there is to do but get a new one. well i hope this works for you guys.

I had the same problem after I powered of my computer from standby. I couldn't turn it on. Went to work, plugged it into USB and it didn't recognize it. Took it home plugged it into USB and it still didn't recognize it. Tried resetting several times and it did othing. Gave up amnd ordered a new one.
Then later while talking on the phone, I absentmindedly enplugged the cable at the computer end (MP# still connectedd to the other end) and plugged it back in. Itpowered on and is now fine. Blew my mind!!

My V Plus was playing in the travel speakers. I left my office for a half hour and it was DEAD when I came back. I tried resetting it, charging it, plugging and unpluging USB to my laptop, thumping it on the table, etc. It has been more than a month. Tonight I decided that if I took it apart per the youtube video and it didn't fix it I had nothing to lose. It was not difficult to take apart and reassemble but it did not fix it. I was looking at your suggestions here and decided to give it another USB jolt. It worked! Its acting like nothing ever happened. Go figure. Maybe it was the combo of taking it apart and pluging into the USB? Who knows.
