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.

Zen vision m 30 g, firmware terhapus gimana


you can go to the Creative Website and download the latest firmware.
and the desktop software.
when you mount it on the computer you will be able to restore the software/firmware.

there are options in the players menu for rebuilding database and things before you restore to see if that helps.

My zen won't turn on. only the blue light flashes when its plugged in. the screen doesnt turn on. what does this mean thanks


Well you can try this if you still got the zen, press the reste button, dont hold just press it then hold down the power button and it will start up but mine just kept on going black fter a while so i had to put it into recovery mode by doing the following.
Hold down play untill the end
Press the reset button
Hold down the power button
Makes sure you releas the play button last
after that do Reload Firmware i think
then it will delete the firmware make sure you have this downloaded on your computer
http://support.creative.com/downloads/download.aspx?nDownloadId=10889
its the newest firmware
when you downloaded this plug in your zen into the computer and it should turn on your zen and then say Firmware problem and if it doesnt just put it into recovery mode then plug it in.
Then make sure all application are turned off like Mozzila or the Internet Explorer, then just double click on the firmware and it should fix

Creative zen not recognized by computer


I was having the same issues with my Zen Vision M : 30 G. It was not recogznized on any computer, and when I turned it on after having it off for a large amount of time (24 hours), it would rebuild half way before completely turning on.
I did a TON of research and found nothing but I finally got my Zen to work by trial and error.  This is how I did it:
Download the MP3 Recovery tool on the Creative Support Website. Make sure that the MP3 player is at least half charged.   Turn on the mp3 player, holding the on power switch in the ON position. (Very important to hold the Power switch!) While holding down the Power switch, reset the Zen by inserting a small object into the hole at the bottom (thumbtack, wire, earring).  A menu will appear: Clean Up, Format (All), Reload OS/Firmware, and Reboot. I chose Clean Up first and this did not work for me so then I Format.  It will remove all of your data on your Zen.   After Formatting, Reboot your Zen and plug it up to your computer. Run the MP3 recovery tool again.   The Firmware should recognize your Zen, and once installed, so should your computer.
I hope this helps!
