    my unit is one yr old, I let the batt die and now it will not recharge. The chg signal at top right of scn came on for a bit, now nothing, period. Maybe I need to replace the batt. But do not see how to do it.

Creative zen is no longer recognized by computer, cannot charge

You need to isolate the problem first before downloading and flashing the firmware of it. Try connecting the Creative into different USB ports of the computer, try different computer or try different USB cable first. Then if you get the same problem after trying those things, then you may refer to the link below and download the firmware:

But I would suggest to contact the manufacturer for flashing the firmware.

Best Regards,

Zen V Plus not charging and not recognized by windows

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Zen m wont turn on

Well, it needs to charge via USB on your computer, so plug in your zen into the computer with the creative usb cord, and let it recharge. It may not necessarily turn on if it's really out of battery, but you can tell its charging when the switch you use to turn on and off, and hold, the light is blinking. After sometime, your Zen screen on the upper righthand corner should show a little battery and be blinking green what stage it's at in its charging. When its done charging the battery icon with be fully green, not blinking, and have a little plug icon inside of the battery icon to indicate that it is fully charged--takes a couple of hours to charge.

If that does not work, check your USB cord to make sure it's not damaged in any way. If it is, you may need to purchase a new one for better connection. And if that doesn't work, then you might need to replace the battery altogether, which I'm sure, if you are still in your manufactuer's warranty, they can do for you. After it is replaced, your zen should be good as new and ready to operate.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Zen V is dead
"If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
