Question about Creative Labs Zen Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Usb is not recognized

I cannot open my player, and always loading When i try to connect my Creative Zen Vision:M 30 GB player (this was not listed here so i listed it as the 60 GB) to my laptop, it shows that the player is charging, but it does not say "docked" or show the "docked" image. Sometimes, though rarely, it also says usb device not recognized or that the usb device can perform faster, but it still does not show that it is docked, and when i go to the creative media player it says that the player is not connected. When i connect it to my family's pc (which is much older than my laptop) it works fine. I do not live with my family and do not have access to their pc all the time and most of my music is on my laptop so i'd really like to make it work with my laptop! I have upgraded my player to the latest version 1.62.02 and have also formatted my player and it still does not work with my laptop! What should i do next? Thanks. how will you go into recovery mode?

Really i don't know what the problem is. the creative doesn't charge and when it charges don't do anything


the player seems to need longer charging:
1. while player switched OFF: let it load on ac-adapter or USB-connection**** for about 1 hour, until the screen lights up.
2. still while player switched OFF: let it load another 2 to 3 hours
to get it fully charged.

**** notice: when using USB for charging:
1. Install the application software (from CD or Creative-download)
2. Preferred is a USB-connection at the backside of the computer
3. When more USB-connections are used, have the others disconnected: trying not to overload the USB-port power-consumption.

My USB port, no longer recognizes the Creative M, yet it charges it the same way?


If you can't connect through USB anymore (also no reaction on you computer and no sign of connecting on the screen of the player),
you are going to need a new logic board. I know only one place that repairs creative zen players and sells the parts besides ebay obviously. If you just want to get the music out you can stick the hard drive on an iPod video logic board (they are compatible) and use a utilty like sharepod to extract the music.

Zen vision 30 gb front buttons don't respond


Go to the Creative website and D-load the firmware renewal utility for your player. It should detect the player via USB automatically and find the firmware for it via the Internet connection. No buttons required.

Firmware problem


See the solution for PC not recognizing your player. You should downgrade to WMP10 by uninstalling WMP11 and WMP11 runtime. Uninstall portable device drivers from System menu and restart the computer. Replug the USB and the player should now be recognized.

If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
