Do you have media player 11?
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.

Check the settings for USB modes MSC or MTP and try switching back and forth and reconnecting to see if that will help. See this tip posted here on this site copy this address into a new window.

There are several diffrent reasons this could be:
  1. USB cabel has a short
  2. USB jack on computer\ZenV might be damaged
  3. You may need to reinstall ZenV softwear
I hope this helps!

exit out of autorun for cd
go to control panel
click on system

Creative zen v plus

i had the same problem but solved it, it seems that the usb driver does not always install with the software installation so you must install using the DEVICE MANAGER make sure first your mp3 player is connected, so ( copy & paste) your software to desktop, then go to CONTROL PANEL, then SYSTEM, then HARDWARE then DEVICE MANAGER, in device manager you should see ( zen v plus ) with a yellow question mark above it, which means the drivers are missing, click onto that and follow instructions to install the drivers which you will find in the software you have pasted to desktop. good luck, tony spain

Computer doesn't recognize device is plugged in.

try aa different USB Port if your computer Has One.
Turn the power On The MPEG Player on and off when it,s Connected.
If this does,nt help.
Replace your USB lead, it is possibly broken internally, or player fault.

Zen V Plus is not recognized in Wins Xp Pro

· Make sure you have media player 11
· If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
· Download recovery tool off creative's website.
