Re: problem with Zen media services organizer software.

Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

I want to record with the line in facilty on my cd


For audio transfers on the Zen V Plus use:
1. A fitting stereo cable between the audio soundcard of the computer (Line Out) and the player (Line In).
2. Organizer software on the computer.
All support for the Zen V Plus is on next site:,VARSET=CategoryID:213
When not having the Organizer software on the computer, get a download from the support page above and perform an installation.

For how to record, you can go directly to next flash demo link for audio recording:
Use the functions in the Organizer page below for the demo playback.
The easiest way to run the tutorial is when using the slider for a step by step demo 1/24 to 24/24 next to the Rewind function.

If this was helpful or when needing more help, I'd appreciate your comment.

Creative zen micro doesn't show so I can transfer

1. remove all creative software from your pc (do this from start menu/settings/control panel/add or remove programs)
2. Uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and Windows Media Player 11 runtime. This will rollback the pc to an earlier version of WMP.
3. Download the latest version of the zen driver from this location:
4. Make sure the zen is not connected to the pc and install run the exe file to install the software on your pc. at some point, the install will tell you that the unit is not connected. Connect the unit to proceed. it will also notify you that you are replacing an existing software, or something to that effect. I accepted or said OK to this popup. Once the firmware is installed, my started to work fine. You can now reinstall WMP from microsoft website. Hope this works for you.

you might want to verify that your new player has the latest firmware available, as this might address the unresponsive-button issue you're having. Firmware updates are surprisingly easy - you just download the firmware file from Creative's website, plug in your player, and double-click the downloaded file. It's that easy.

Cannot move files using the organizer

You can't move the files once you put them on the player. The media explorer part of the software does not allow for moving files. The only way to move them it to delete them and put them back in the new location on the player. The creative software does not work like windows explorer.
