Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

1 Answer

NO Power to my creative zen microphoto

It had half battery power. I had dropped it, it came on for a second and said that the battery was too low. I tried to charge it on my computer and now it won't come on at all and the computer doesn't recognize it. It is completely dead. The battery is fine, though. A friend opened it up and he said there doesn't seem to be anything knocked loose. I thought I might have messed up the battery connection and the USB connection.

slide the back off, take out the battery, put it back in while holding the power switch on. THis brings up the Recovery Menu, from where you have various options, formatting being but one.

I have bought a new netbook and tried to put music onto my Creative Zen microphoto, but it says that no device has been detected. Even though it charges so I know the USB and cables are OK. I had this...


Unplug the device from the system, turn it off entirely, allow for some 10min and power it again before you plug to your netbook. Or you could plug to the netbook first before powering the device if the first idea did not solve the problem.Lastly, turn off or restart your netbook while the device remain plugged in.You may be prompted to insert the installation disc if your Creative Zen Microphoto device is not a "plug and play" depending on which windows platform you are operating.Goodluck!

Creative Zen Microphoto is not turning on, after buying new battery. No charge, no plug power to UBS, no ability to update or reload it. Is this thing dead?


hi sorry to hear that, i have one that is still giving me great sound. i do have a suspicion on your problem. i once tried a different usb cord on some of my mp3 players. all cords are not equal. perhaps the usb cord that you are useing does not transfer power. i have cords that do not transfer files, just power. good luck-- i do like the sound of this product

Zen microphoto won't start fully - frozen


I panicked when my Zen failed to start and sent the email before looking further on your site. All I had to do was go into recovery mode perform a clean and then all worked OK.

Great site by the way - really helpful

Freezes at "rebuilding library"


I just found this on another website and it seems to be working so give it a shot


Listen!!!!! Anyone having problems try this before you blame the product. Turn off player........remove battery.......hold on button ON and put battery back in while still holding the power button on. When power comes on release the power button. You should now see a clean format and re-boot screen. Use the clean function two times. After the second time go down to reboot and should be fine. Worked for me. The Zen Micro Photo is a sweet mp3 player. Dont blame the product for something YOU most likely did. This will fix 99% of your players problems
