Mine froze while trying to add radio preset stations. Had to put a pin in the reset hole to recover.
Have tried to understand 'playlists' without success!

no other way, it need to be fomated from it's service menu.

1. Make sure bthat your Zen is turned off and has a full battery.
2. Press and hold the Play/Pause button and Back/Options button simultaneously.
3.
The Recovery Mode screen appears when the player, and three menu items are shown: Clean Up, Format and Reboot.

Creative Zen should have a reset button on the side, it is a very small hole that you will need a pin to push the button inside, hold the button for about 20 seconds. This should reset the player.

Creative Zen Freezes on Rebuilding


My Zen locked when I turned it on. It wouldn't play the track the screen was on so I pressed the reset button and turned it on again. It was then still locked on the same track so I tried turning it off which then froze as it was shutting down. After another reset it went through the rebuild screen then locked again. I then used the above fix (pin in reset, then hold play and power switch down). Taking me into the kind of bios screen I formatted the contents. Then added my library again. It's now working fine.
This is the second Zen I've had because the first one had the same problem so I took it back without trying to fix it. Both times the problem occured when I had my Zen plugged into my car stereo auxiliary jack whilst switching the ignition on in my car. I can't understand why this would cause the problem but I'll avoid doing that in future.

If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!
