I have a gypsy havent ue it in a whikle went to use it today and it wont turn on, have been charging it all day and stillnothing, try resetting it, nothing and pluge in to th elecrtic outlet still nothing

Try holding a button or two when plugging it in to break the cycle when it gets plugged it. Unplug the cord from both the wall an player and before you plug it back in , make sure you hold a button or two. It takes a couple or few times to do it with playbooks in my experience.

Hi My player is Creative ZEN MOZAIC EZ 100 - 4GB It is not able to recharge and when connects to PC there appears scaning Disk... and nothing else happends long time.

I've had similar issues with the Zen Microphoto, usually the case is a defective cable. Even though the PC sees the device that does not mean that the cable is connecting properly. Try using a different mini USB 2.0 cable. That fixed all of my issues with my Zen Microphoto's connection and inability to charge.

Creative zen microphoto crashed and havent used it in a bit but i got it charged last night and i have a new computer now i connected it and it showing up but i have to reload the firm wear but when i go...

I had the same problem with my creative micro. Do you still have the CD-ROM that came with the mp3? If so just download the creative software from the disc then restart you computer, you computer should see it after that. It worked for me... I even used the wrong disc, I've had both Micro and Micro Photo mp3s, and i still had the CD-ROM for the microphoto.
How did you get your Microphoto to charge after it crashed? I cant seem to figure this one out. I even have a new battery for it, but it wont turn on at all.

Did my mp3 player come with a charging cable, or should it charge automatically when plugged into my computer!! Havent used it for ages an cant remember!!

Normally all MP3 players get charged when you connect it to computer.If you want to charge separately you have chargers available in markets can buy those and can charge.
Thank You

Ipod is acting funny and its not working

Yes. Wait for it to charge. You've probably run the battery COMPLETELY flat. Your ipod will turn off with a little charge left, to keep the flash memory ticking over so you don't lose all your data. If you left it too long, even that will run out. Just leave it to charge, completely. If that means 3 hours, then wait that long, because it'll be a lot better for your battery life in the long term.

Creative Zen Microphoto is not turning on, after buying new battery. No charge, no plug power to UBS, no ability to update or reload it. Is this thing dead?

hi sorry to hear that, i have one that is still giving me great sound. i do have a suspicion on your problem. i once tried a different usb cord on some of my mp3 players. all cords are not equal. perhaps the usb cord that you are useing does not transfer power. i have cords that do not transfer files, just power. good luck-- i do like the sound of this product

Creative Zen MP3 won't charge with mains adaptor

Don't worry that doesn't mean that your mp3 player is faulty, if there is any fault it is from the charger but since the usb charges it well, just continue to use it. It doesn't mean the player is faulty, IT HAPPENS.

Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto (8GB) possible faulty USB Cable ????

When I had that problem on my Zen I un-installed all the software and rebooted my system and reloaded the software. Not sure why it worked but it did.
