I've had an issue with it freezing at the creative logo... I am trying to use the suggestion on their support site.

the process is: take the battery off. move and hold the power switch all the way to the left then reinsert battery and let go... this puts you into a recovery mode... they tell you format the player.. you will lose all files on it but its supposed to make it work again... i've tried this and its been formatting forever... anyone try this.. how long does formatting take?

The microdrive is bad. You'll need to buy another player, since its too expensive to buy the microdrive; it costs more than half what the player costs.

Freezes on Logo


Odds are pretty good that the hard drive is messed up. This happened to me on 2 different zens. Can sent to Creative for repair, but if no warranty, then it would be easier to just buy a new one.

Zen Micro Photo...freezes at Creative Logo


The microdrive is bad. Unfortunately you now have a brick. Microdrives are pretty expensive; you're best bet it to buy another MP3 player.

Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
