Question about Audio Players & Recorders
My creative zen 8gb has frozen up.
If you haven't fixed it yet try powering it on and leave it on until the battery is drained out, then fully charge and see if it works.

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.

try this if your Zen will not turn on
hold the pause/play button down
while holding the pause/play, first use a paperclip to press the reset button and then slide the power thing down for a few seconds like you are turning it on.
release the pause/play button.
you may need to connect it to usb for it to turn on. worked like a charm for me when everything else failed. hope it helps!!!

The following worked for me. Go to the Creative Zen Support warranty info page of their site:
I ran the recovery tool with my zen connected to the computer and it changed from being in a docked state to updating firmware, after it had done this it worked fine again.
