Re: charging problem....

You might have a "bad" song? Try wipping the songs off and resyncing youre player. Also, for the charging problem. Are you charging it through your computer? I've found that these players charge ALOT better through an AC outlet. I hope this helps.

Battery won't charge.

I just figured out the problem I had just like yours. I have three different sony MP3's and thought all the usb cables were the same. Well after changing out the usb cable my 438f started charging. I was using the cable from my s615f and the same is true if I use the 438 cable on the 615-full battery instantly. Also sony does not replace these batteries. If in warranty from purchase date, they will exchange with "like product" for $29, or repair yours for $77. Both prices include return shipping. http//

MP3 Player won't charge or turn on

Try charging it up on a different computer. It says in the instructions that they cannot guarantee the charging of the battery on personally assembled or modified computers. I had the same problem with mine on our independent computer shop bought PC, but it is charging up fine now that I've plugged it into my hubby's laptop which was bought in a PC supermarket. I hope this helps.

USB Cord (Or something)

First, make sure the hold/lock is not engaged, and that there is no lock on your USB port (usually not). Try hooking it to a different PC, and see if it will charge. If it charges on a different PC or a different usb port, then your USB port is bad/wrong kind.

sounds like it might be either a bad firmware driver, which can be erased and reinstalled via the USB connection to your computer and a download from creative. Or the battery has gone bad, in which case you have to have it sent to creative for Repair.

Won't turn on.

I had exactly the same problem as Damma32.

This solved the problem:
I plugged the ZEN out from the PC and pressed the reset-button, then pressed the play-button while turning it on again. when the creative logo appeared on the screen I released the play-button and a recovery-meny appeared. I used the clean-mode, which fixed the problem.

How long can it possibly charge for the first time?

With USB mains charger it takes approx 18 hours for the first ever charge so I would hate to be using the usb to pc to do the same.
Once this initial charge is achieved though it will charge by usb to pc as you work even though it does ask "usb connection or Charge"

2 problems with my coby mp3 player

I have the same problem just bought the thing yesterday and it won't charge I downloaded music yesterday and charged it, now it isn't recognized by the computer.

Went thru the whole troubleshooting chart and nothing happened, I did email techsupport but haven't heard anything. I guess I'll take the thing back and get it replaced.

First time chargin Zune 30GB Brown

I had the same problem (frozen after first time trying to charge.) I found the solution on another site. I just unplugged the device and let the battery drain completely, then plugged it back in (rear usb port) and voila, it works, that simple.
