My brother's MP3 player is messed up. When you boot it, it automatically goes to recovery mode. Here, it tells you the firmware and gives me a couple options: Recovery Mode Creative Zen Micro...

Couple things to try.

Let the battery drain completely, then do a full charge and try again.

When turning it on, don't hold the ON slide, just slide it to ON then let it go. Holding it will send it into recovery and reset mode.

Creative zen

First off, download the Firmware upgrade from Creative (

Don't run it just yet!

Now, go into the Zen Micro's Recovery Mode:

1. Take out the battery
2. Press and hold the ON/LOCK button in the ON position (far left) and put the battery back in the player.
3. The player will then switch on - wait until "Recovery Mode" appears on the screen then let go of the ON/LOCK button.

The Recovery Mode options include an option to "Reload Firmware".

Now connect your Zen Micro to your PC and run the Firmware upgrade. Your player should be recognized by the Firmware uploader. If it isn't, then then your player has other damage.

Recovery mode

If your Zen is in recovery mode, simply reboot it, and it should go back to its normal screen.

However, if you reboot it and it goes back into recovery mode again, that means there is some problem with your Zen--likely a hardware failure. It will need to be checked out by a technician.
