Re: it freezes

Behind the on/off switch is a little hole. Inserting the end of a paperclip will reboot the device. Then seek out the latest software from the creative site and install it. It is sometimes a glitch caused by an early version of the software.

Freezes on Logo

Odds are pretty good that the hard drive is messed up. This happened to me on 2 different zens. Can sent to Creative for repair, but if no warranty, then it would be easier to just buy a new one.

Micro photo mp3 freezes

The microdrive is bad. You'll need to buy another player, since its too expensive to buy the microdrive; it costs more than half what the player costs.

Zen Micro Photo...freezes at Creative Logo

The microdrive is bad. Unfortunately you now have a brick. Microdrives are pretty expensive; you're best bet it to buy another MP3 player.

Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
