Are you putting music on the player or on an SD card? What format are the files? If they are iTunes m4a files, the creative player won't read or play them. If they are not mp3 or wma files they have to be converted using 3rd party software.
If you put music on the SD card you have to either browse the card from the main menu or import the songs from the SD card to the player itself. The files won't just list from the main music menu. I have one of those players and it worked pretty well but it takes some playing with to get the hang of some of the features and so on.
Are you using the software that came with it? You may want to check the Creative site for updated software, and I also noticed there is an update for the firmware if it is not already updated.

Let me know if I can help further.

Cheers

    Try wiping it and reload it using Windows Media Player to see if it works better. Also as I said see if there is a newer firmware update on the Creative support site.

    Cheers

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.


Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano.
6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.

Tips & Warnings
Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.

Hi, Well if you have deleted the songs you can not recover them in any way.What you can do is to upload new songs through your PC to your MP3 player.

IPOD UPLOAD


Well the only way is to buy a program that allows you to transer mp3 songs off a device and put it back onto your computer. There are programs that let you do it for free.....but you have to do it song by song. LONG process...trust me i tried haha. It does work though. But yea you can A. Jail break your ipod and download the program that converts your music for you. or just buy the program to do it for you. But you can only jail break it if its an I touch first or second gen.

Creative Zen 8g Hangs up and won't reset


I also had the same problem last week where my Zen was stuck on one song. I tried resetting it umpteen times, but it always went back to that song. I connected to the computer and went under
the Creative Zen application and had to format my whole Zen. I lost everything I had, but it was unstuck and I just downloaded everything again except that song. No trouble since then. Hope this helps.
