My mp3 player stays on all the time and i cant turn it off

  1. Check that the Creative Zen Touch has the most current version of the firmware driver. Firmware updates typically fix most common errors and problems encountered when using the Zen Touch. Turn on the MP3 player and select "System" in the home menu. Click "Information" then press "Settings." Select "About." Look for the internal firmware's version number listed under "Version." The most recent firmware is 2.01.00 and was released in 2006. If your software is outdated, download an update from the Creative support site:
  2. Ensure that the song files you are trying to transfer to the Zen Touch are compatible with the player. On your computer, right click the song file to view its file format. The Zen Touch can play all unprotected WMAs, WAVs and MP3s. It does not support the popular protected AAC format that is used in online stores such as Apple iTunes.
  3. Verify that the Zen Touch's internal battery is fully charged. This may cause what appears to be a blank or dead screen, as well as slow responsiveness to your touch. Insert the power adapter brick connector into the Zen Touch's power port found on its right-hand top corner. Plug the adapter into a wall outlet to begin charging. The MP3 player will be finished charging in four hours. You may use the MP3 player while it is charging, but this may slow down the charging process.
  4. Adjust the screen contrast on the Zen Touch. This may resolve any issues you have with viewing the screen in bad lighting. From the main menu, click "Settings" and choose "Contrast." Slide your finger up or down the Zen Touch's touch pad to adjust the contrast to a suitable setting.

Creative Zen mp3 player - computer won't recognise it

The ONLY AND I REPEAT ONLY way to solve zen and computer recognistion problem is to have THE ORIGINAL INSTALL DISK that came with player.
The only things that will work is
1. Download Utorrent 2. Go to google or yahoo and search Creative (you'r player type ie zen touch, zen mossiac, zen x, etc.etc.) install disk torrent. 3. Try to find the one that is closest to the name of your player (ie. zen touch, mossiac, x) and download the install disk. 4. After the download finishes you should be able to run setup like you have the disk.
I downloaded the install disk torrent and after i finished downloading I simply found the setup file clicked it and installed the neccessary files, and presto my computer recognised my zen touch.
#2 If you can't find a install disk for you perticular player, you should try to see if maybe a friend or someone youknow has a creative mp3 player and ask to borrow there install disk, who knows it just might work for you'r player. Best of luck and I hope this will solve you zen player/computer problem

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.

Remove music

I had the same problem. You have to hold down the back button when you highlight the selected song. That back button is also the options button if you hold it down. You'll see a menu if you do it correctly. Then just scroll down to delete song and BAM...
it's gone.
