My Zen freeze while i transfer music and video ; Docked Screen

I have a Creative Zen that's the credit card shape with the big screen. I was loading tracks onto it from my pc, and it fully charged. Suddenly it stopped working and now it just says "Docked" and shows the docked picture (two arrows) but it's not moving, and the battery symbol is white with the lightning flash on it. I'm not very tech savy and I was enjoying using my Zen - I don't know what's gone wrong. I Have the same problem.I just bought it last sunday and the same day it started freezing. I can transfer video only on my memory card and I can't transfer it after into my zen. For the music, i can't transfer more than 5 songs at the same time without freezing. I Want help !!

SOURCE: Docked screen

I am assuming that it's disconnected when the Docked screen is showing.

There should be a small reset button on the bottom of the device. You'll need a paperclip or some other narrow object to push it. The player should turn off, and when you turn it back on, the player should rebuild. (Don't worry - you shouldn't have lost any data in the process.)

If the player still doesn't work, then post back.

My fm radio stopped working on my creative zen vision, and the display is all messed up. It also freezes for about 20 minutes when I turn it on. After 20 minutes, it will play normal, but it freezes...


Support for Zen Vision M on this site:

One of the Knowledgebase Solutions for "freezing" gives this answer:

Solution ID: 64087
dot-clear.gifSolution ID # 64087 -->dot-clear.gifdot-clear.gif -->
















Player is Freezing
Keywords / Key Phrases: freeze, freezes, freezing, hang, hanging, freezes at creative logo, at docked screen, rebuilding library screen, playing audio files, switching to other functions or menus while shutting down, freezes at recovery mode, freezing at music playing now screen


  1. Gently push the end of a thin object (such as a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole.
    The reset button for your player is located at the bottom of the player, to the left of the sync adapter port.



  2. Refer to the article below to access the recovery mode and perform a Clean Up.

    SID 64088: Accessing the Recovery/Rescue Mode of your Player

    Note:



    1. Clean Up scans a player\'s hard disk/memory card and removes any invalid links from the music library. It does not affect the working music files at all. It is recommended that you perform "Clean Up" first before formatting or reloading the player\'s firmware.



    2. It is advisable for you to clean up your player regularly if you are frequently transferring files from you computer to your player or vice versa.

Instruction for zen mosaic by creative


I think alot of people are having the same problem I was. We got home, opened the box, plugged it in the computer, and nothing useful happened so then we installed the mini-cd. Well the thing is windows stops looking for a driver once it searches and finds nothing, and unfortunately those of us using XP do not automatically have the drivers. So...

SOLUTION
------------------
-If you have not already installed the mini-cd, do so, or download from Creative's site in the support section(if you do you might want to grab the latest firmware update)
-Once pack has been installed the drivers have been as well, BUT as I mentioned we now have to tell windows to look for them again.
-Reconnect your Mosaic
-Right click "My Computer"
-Chose "Properties"
-Click the "Hardware" tab
-Click "Device Manager"
-A window will pop up and you will see a long list with (hopefully only) one thing under the "Other Devices" sublist. It should be something along the lines of "Creative Zen Mosaic". Right click it
-Chose "Update Drivers"
-Follow prompts agreeing to search and auto install
-Once install is done, in a moment the screen on your Mosaic will say "Docked"
-Congratulations!
If you have downloaded the updated firmware this is the time to install:
-Ensure your Mosaic is in "Docked" mode
-Execute the firmware update
-Click "Upgrade"
-Wait (it takes a moment or two)
-Updater will say it is complete
-Mosaic will reboot
-Click "Close"
-Congratulations!

Hope that helps.

My Creative Zen Frozen in Docked Screen


Hello,

The following worked for me. Go to the Creative Zen Support warranty info page of their site:

http://www.creative.com/products/mp3/MP3PlayerRecoveryTool/welcome.asp?

I ran the recovery tool with my zen connected to the computer and it changed from being in a docked state to updating firmware, after it had done this it worked fine again.

Docked?


Try uninstalling and re-installing the software and drivers that comes with the device. The player thinks it's docked but it's not communicating properly to the software because the data on your computer has probably become corrupted from the freeze. If you have lost the software and drivers (or if you'd like to update your firmware) you can find the files here: http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/download.asp?MainCategory=213&nRegionFK=&nCountryFK=&nLanguageFK=&sOSName=Windows+XP®ion=1&Product_Name=ZEN+Sleek&Product_ID=13599&modelnumber=&driverlang=1033&OS=10&drivertype=0&x=14&y=12
