Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Not working at all, seemingly.

Okay, so, how to explain this. The other night, my Zen froze. Now, this had happened to me a few times before, so I reset it. And, as it was loading all the music, I accidentally hit the play key. When I did this, it ended up going straight to the play screen, and loading up only fourteen songs. Now, considering I have upwards of 1600, this was worrying. "Oh well," I thought, "I'll just load the rest onto it." When I went into Windows Media Player to sync music onto it (horribly inconvenient, but possible, right?) it couldn't detect the player. I checked my connection, and it was fine, and I even went so far as to unplug both ends of the USB cord, and plug them both in. Still not working. I opened up Media Explorer, and it couldn't detect it either. This was worrying. I uninstalled Media Explorer, and reinstalled it, and still nothing. And just a bit ago, having just (unrelatedly) gotten a new computer last night, I figured I should try installing the Creative disc, and seeing whether it'd work. The computer detects the Zen, but that's as far as it goes. I still can't sync my music to the player, and it's really starting to worry me. On the off-chance I explained that well at all (which I probably didn't), any help you guys can offer?

Freezes on the 'Rebuilding...' screen.


The same thing happened too me about six months ago after about a year and a half of using my zen with min. problems. It would freeze on 'Rebuilding..' and then there was an endless cycle of reset but eventually it would Rebuild completely and all my music and information was fine. It seemed to be playing fine but if it froze I had to start the reset game all over again. Then the real problems started. There are a few load screens before you make it to the Rebuild and it started to freeze on that instead after awhile. I was actually revealed when I froze on 'rebuilding..' and made it that far.
If you can get it into recover mode and reboot it seems to have less problems freezing but that doesn't even work for me anymore. Then occasionally when it freezes it starts to vibrate terribly and make a horrible sound. Then it stops and flashes hard disk problems.
This all happened slowly too me. It really wasn't worth the time I put into it trying to fix it. My advice is to work on getting a new MP3 player. If you can get it past the 'rebuilding..' your going to have to play the reset game every time it freeze and it will probably freeze more often.

Try sticking a safety pin into the reset hole. It's tiny and it should be at the bottom I did this with my other creative when it froze and it worked.

Zen frozen on one screen even after I've restarted it.


hard drive sounds bad. has it been dropped?
try to do a cleanup
  1. Detach the Zen player from your PC , and ensure that the Zen Sleek is turned off.
2. Connect the power supply to the player.
3. Hold down the Play/Pause button while inserting a paper clip into the Reset hole
underneath your player, beside the data/power connector. Keep on holding the
Play/Pause button while you release the Reset button. The Rescue Mode screen will
then appear.
4. After the recovery mode has started, release the Play/Pause button

It will display the following options.
Clean Up Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.
Does not affect music files themselves.
Format (All) Caution! Erases all content!
Save a copy of your player's content before formatting.
Reload OS/ Firmware Caution! Erases your player's firmware.
DO NOT select the Reload Firmware option unless you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.
Reboot Reboots the device.
