Make sure you have media player 11
If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
Download recovery tool off creative's website.
go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them

Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix
If that doesn't fix it try the USB cable

One yr old, i let batt die, now does not seem to want to chg. after a bit the scn goes blank.
Following a tip on another forum, I picked up a Creative wall charger for the Zen Micro. Works just fine with my Zen V Plus and it was only $9.99 ($17 with tax and shipping) off the Creative web site. I like that it has a 5-foot cord. (That little USB cable that comes with the player is a pain.)
