    It was probably about 5 months ago that I tried to turn my mp3 player on and it went to the re-building library screen, after that it froze on the normal playing song screen. You can't do anything with it. And just today I plugged it into my computer and tried turning it on. It then went to a screen that said Firmware Problem. So I downloaded the thing that was suppose to fix it, and it ended up saying that there was no device recognized even though it was plugged in and turned on. Please help me!!
    Thank you.

First off, download the Firmware upgrade from Creative (http://support.creative.com/downloads/welcome.aspx?nDriverType=4#type_4)

Don't run it just yet!

Now, go into the Zen Micro's Recovery Mode:

1. Take out the battery
2. Press and hold the ON/LOCK button in the ON position (far left) and put the battery back in the player.
3. The player will then switch on - wait until "Recovery Mode" appears on the screen then let go of the ON/LOCK button.

The Recovery Mode options include an option to "Reload Firmware".

Now connect your Zen Micro to your PC and run the Firmware upgrade. Your player should be recognized by the Firmware uploader. If it isn't, then then your player has other damage.

Zen microphoto won't start fully - frozen


I panicked when my Zen failed to start and sent the email before looking further on your site. All I had to do was go into recovery mode perform a clean and then all worked OK.

Great site by the way - really helpful

Reboot is the mildest of the two - it will restart the player without erasing any songs. Try that one first, and let me know how it performs. Fromat and firmware will erase all songs on the player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
