Question about Creative Labs Zen Micro MP3 Player

1 Answer

Creative Zen Recently my Zen has had a problem "booting" up. While docked, it remains on the Creative logo and does not advance. I allowed it to charge overnight as well as let the battery drain completely then charging it again. Do I need a new battery? What can I do?

Unfortunately, your hard drive is damaged. You should buy another player, since microdrives are so expensive.

I need a charging cable for a Creative Zen M.


Although your Creative Zen M will charge in about 2.5 hours with the optional docking station charger,
you can also charge it through your computer with any standard USB cable.

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.

When I plug it in to charge the player, it says "docked" as usual, but then it turns itself off and acts like I've disconnected it. It says "Low Battery" and shuts down.


The zen need a full charge... if you have an ac adapter plug it in for at least eight hours. if you don't have an ac adapter plug it in via USB to a DESKTOP computer (not laptop) and try to use a differnt usb cord (creative doesn't always include a powerful enough cord to get the zen out of that low power state)

refer to creative.com/support and look up info on your model to see if anyone else has your issue

When i shut down the com. my zen wont start up anymore


When you let the battery totally run down on these, it has to sit and charge, looking quite dead, for a little while before it has enough of a charge to boot-up again.

My Creative Zen M won't "dock"


One problem may be that the registry entry for the player is corrupted. You can find out if this is the case by opening your computer's Device Manager (this page tells how, if you're not familiar with it). Look under "Windows Portable Devices" if you have XP or "Portable Devices" if you have Vista, and you should see the name of your MP3 player.

If your player is listed in the Device Manager but has a small yellow warning sign next to it, right click on your player's name and click Properties. The Properties box may say "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)."

If this is the case, there's an easy fix, that doesn't require any messing with the registry or anything:

--Right click on your player in the Device Manager and click Uninstall
--Unplug your player from your computer when the uninstall finishes
--Plug your player back in to your computer
--Vista will automatically reinstall the driver, and your player should appear in My Computer

Unfortunately this is for Vista. I don't believe XP will reinstall the driver automatically, so you may have to install it manually from your Creative CD. Anyway, what this does is simply uninstall the corrupt driver and reinstall it. It worked for me - hopefully it helps you!
