The computer no longer recognizes the mp3 player when it is connected thru the usb port6

I had the same problem. Reinstalling Windows Media Player didn't help; nor did reinstalling the Creative drivers.
But this worked... in Device Manager I uninstalled everything under Universal Serial Bus controllers, rebooted and let Windows reinstall the USB drivers. Had to reinstall my mouse software too, but the Zen is now back to normal.
Hope this helps someone.

I cant get my computer to recognize the mp3, I just want to put music on it.

if your computer recognizes the device as a valid drive (look in 'my computer' folder for it) then you should be able to reformat it. Right click on the device in my computer, click format, quick format. set to FAT format if it lets you. run the format, then disconnect the device and power it back on. it should re-boot and then try to connect again. Try using windows medai player to transfer music. or download Rhapsody and try using that.
