Creative X-Fi MP3 Player Freezes

The new Creative X-Fi MP3 player is awesome; however, it recently started freezing EACH TIME I disconnect the player from the computer after transferring files. Creative says to reformat the player, which is like starting all over again and I rather just buy someone else's player since it will take hours to get all my music and books transferred again. I did try an alternative that Creative suggested and CLEANED the player, which doesn't format the player but is said to fix certain issues. Did not resolve the issue; player still freezes each time I transfer files. The player does rebuild itself and everything operates normally after the freeze when I push RESET, but I just wonder if anything else will work, short of reformatting. The Creative FAQs also claim that if I install the updated firmware, I have to REFORMAT the player, or might backup all my files or something, which concerns me. Any insight on that issue? Thanks!

    There is still about 25% of the memory left, so I am not sure if "overloading" is the issue, but I was wondering about that.

The microdrive is bad. Unfortunately you now have a brick. Microdrives are pretty expensive; you're best bet it to buy another MP3 player.

It freezes


Behind the on/off switch is a little hole. Inserting the end of a paperclip will reboot the device. Then seek out the latest software from the creative site and install it. It is sometimes a glitch caused by an early version of the software.
