Re: ZEN V Plus frozen on creative screen

You might need to format the player by holding the play button as you press reset, this will bring up the options to reset of format the plkayer update firmware etc etc.

My Zen V Plus is really screwed up

Sounds like a similar problem I had today.

My Creative Zen V Plus wasn't recognised by my PC, then it wouldn't even switch on.

Following the solution of another similar problem on here I fixed it. Connect your Zen via USB to your computer and press the reset button. Should spring to life and start re-building your library. I am as I type adding new tracks to mine :))

Try pressing the reset button on the side. If it starts up go in to the utilities menu and reset it. That may fix it, or you may need to reload the firmware. You can get the firmware from the Creative support pages.

Creative zen v problems-frozen

If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!
