Question about Creative Labs Zen Digital Media Player
My Creative Zen and plugged it into my computer. I left for a few minutes. When I came back I noticed that the computer didn't recognize the device yet, so I looked at it and it said "rebuilding". I waited for twenty minutes and it was still at the same progess as before. I even poked a pin into the reset hole in the device and it turned off. But when I turned it back on it went right back to the "rebuilding" screen and was at the same, frozen progess as before. So now I have my Zen unplugged from the computer and letting it just sit on the table, and it's STILL not doing anything, it won't even turn off if I try to. Help? i have the same problem but mine still get stuck on the rebuilding page..it only loads up about 5%..is there other suggestions that i can use to fix 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!

Hold the reset button with a paper clip AND the play button at the same time while flipping the power switch. The ZEN should go into recovery mode. You probably want to do format all but you can try the different options. You also may need to download/update the firmware here.
