    i had my zen m for about 5 months my sister had hers for about the same and both ours mysteriously stopped working it would not come on at all. i had it plugged into my laptop and suddenly it froze and nothing i did made it go off i let the battery die and then i tried to charge it but my computer did not pick up on the fact that it was plugged in to it. i was wondering if it needs a new battery, i didnt have it for that long. or do it need a new hard drive. i thought it was the cord or my computer but it wasnt cause i brought a new usb cord and i also tried plugging it into two different computers. Please help Ill appericiate it so much!!

    Dear All,

    I have the same problem:

    - Device seams completely dead. Battery is charged (checked on that, 3,8 V!) and led blinks. But operating system on Vision does not react

    - Device is not recognized from computer via USB.



    Tried next steps:

    - ofcourse the reset button => no reaction of vision

    - changed battery, because I thought this was cause of problem.



    Hope somebody has a cure to get the cute machine working.



    Regards, Jan

Turns on and then goes to rebuilding screen then says firmware problem but computer doesnt register that its hooked up


check on the zen site and make sure you have the current version for your zen.
download it and do a rebuild with new firmware.
this mp3 has a hard drive, the exact one that the ipod has. They are not immuned from crashing for sure.
But doing a reinstall of the software will probably help alot.

If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."

Zen Vision


It could be anything. Check the firmware on the device? Is it a 1.xx.xx or a 2.xx.xx? What version of Windows do you use? Do you have Windows Service Pack 2? Etc? It really could be anything.

Either try changing the "Auto-Load" function - preventing creative from taking charge of it OR your windows needs update to support the device as a flash drive.
