    My creative ven v plus 4gb is stuck in recovery mode i have tried the reset button but it doesnt work

  • jendwb Jan 24, 2009

    I turned on my Creative Zen V Plus MP3 player this morning and received a message, recovery mode with the following options: clean up, format all, reload firmware, reboot. Tried clean up and reboot with no results.

    Did not try other two options because all data would be lost.

Stuck in recovery mode


Hi,
Sounds like the actual firmware is corrupted. You might try loading the firmware on the Recovery Mode by using the firmware upgrade available at Creative's website.

Hope this helps

Stuck in recovery mode and firmware problems


My Creative Zen mp3 player is stuck on Recovery mode , and keeps on saying filmware problem. I have tried to reset, push power button down and push play button at the same time. I also tried Clean-Up Format and reload filmware.

Nothing has worked, and I am about to throw it out the window.

Please if you can help me.

Thank You

Recovery mode


to reset this player -- take out the battery and put back again.
In the recovery mode do the following: format the HD, clean the firmware. If those two go smoothly, go to creative.com and download the firmware, connect player to PC(still in recovery mode) and run the downloaded firmware.

Creative Zen Touch stuck in "recovery mode"


Hello,

Have you tried to load the firmware? First you'll need to download the firmware to your PC from Creative's website: Click here. After you've downloaded it, connect your Zen via USB to your PC and open the firmware icon, then click "Upgrade."

Recovery Mode


I agree, use the Reload Firmware tool on recovery mode and then upgrade the firmware from the website. If you get "firmware failed!", then try it from a different computer.

Still messed up.


hi yes it should be in recovery mode when doing this
does the firmware tell you when to connect the mp3 player to computer once in recovery mode open firmware file then when it asks to connect then plug into your comp if it dont work this way then plug into comp before opening firmware file give this way a try also.
But the mp3 player needs to be in recovery mode whilst doing this

if this still dont work then try a different usb port failing this then their is a problem with either the cable or usb port or conection on mp3 check cable and connections at both ends make sure no dirt or paper is stuck in mp3 end ok

Let me know what happens ok
