Re: my mp4 screen is stuck in rebuilding library mood

Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

Before returning the player, try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?

Sony walkman NWZ-B135F doesnot turn on properly.. When turning it on 'Walkman' text appears and '.......' is appearing. after that no action.tried resetting also, no use

First guess. you have a large library and just added something. it is rebuilding its index

Second guess: you have other files than just music on here. it is rebuilding the library and has to scan all the non-mp3 files. Mine takes about 2-5 minutes to boot after adding / removing files

Stuck on "rebuilding" screen

This should help you right here: Detach the player from the PC and turn the unit off. Then slide the power switch towards the power icon and hold the switch. Push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a straightened paper clip) into the reset hole, press gently and remove. Release the power button when the recovery mode appears. Select format (all) and select yes to format the player. After the player has finished formatting, select reboot. Then retransfer the tracks to the player as doing the format will erase the whole player.

if it keeps on rebuilding the library the disk had a bad spot on it try going in to recover mode and do a clean if that doesn't work do a format if that doesn't work download the latest firmware if that doesn't fix you will need a new hard drive or flash drive.

Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
