Well, i didn't charge mine over night, was listening to it in the evening while doing some chores and all of a sudden it stopped playing, Blank screen and permanent Blue light. I tried to turn if off but it didn't respond so i left it. In the morning, it went off itself (guess the battery was low). So i connected to the computer and inserted the ZEN CD. As i was exploring the CD looking for a solution, then all of a sudden the screen came up with a note "Rebuilding..." after 5 secs it came on. With all my files intact!
I hope this wud be helpful, You could give it a shot, after all there's nothing to loose!
I just sorted one of these out. Forget the usb cord even witht the blue light flashing it ain't charging. Not sure about the internal wiring of the dongle but usb just doesn't seem to deliver enough oomph to get it started when the battery is that flat. Get a mains adaptor and plug that in to the charging socket on the dongle or get one of those dedicated mains chargers from ebay. Once I did this I was up and running in no time.
unfortunately,the best solution is to send it back to creative for them to check it out. this sometimes happens when the player has been unused for too long and battery "under charges", which there is a solution.but seeing as u used it under normal conditions,that cant be the problem

I Recently bought a Zen, and it works great. The only problem I found was that it freezes itself from time to time, and the best solution to this problem is on the bottom of your Zen, there is a very small Reset hole. With a needle or a toothpick, gently stick it in, and push lightly. This will allow the Zen to unfreeze, and return back into it's regular mode. All your files will be saved, and kept on to the Zen, so you don't need to worry about losing any of your files.
