Question about Creative Labs Zen Micro MP3 Player

1 Answer

Creative Zen Micro

My Creative Zen Micro (6gb) has been stuck on recovery mode and I can't get it to work. I've tried unplugging it over and over, I tried to reload the firmware but it just says there is a firmware problem and goes back to recovery mode. I've rebooted it It seems I've tried everything and it's not working. A little insight into the problem is in order.

Thanks

    Actually it was. It was in its leather case but I guess that doesn't matter. These things are so sensitive. If I can't fix it then I'm going to have to get something else because this happened before and I had to send it in to be serviced. Too much hassle.

    Thanks again.

Sounds like the hard drive is bad, was the unit dropped?

    you can fix it with using a cf flash card which makes it no as bad when you drop it.'

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.

My creative zen micro v0.0.65 got stuck in recovery mode


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Creative Zen website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Creative zen micro stuck in recovery mode


To Fix any problems with broken firmware form attempted “playsforsure”
firmware updates etc where your pc finds it as a 20mb drive and it sits
in recovery mode and does bugger all:
1. Uninstall all creative software & drivers
2. Uninstall Media Player 11 and Media Player 11 runtime (will require a
reboot for each thing). This is done by going to add/remove programs and
uninstalling (this will put your pc back to wmp10).
3. Re-install the Zen Driver from the creative website and reboot (I just reloaded Media Explorer using my ZMP install CD).
4, Plug Zen in.
5, Make sure you have the firmware update ready, run it but don’t click
the language bit yet), leave the mouse hovering over your language
selection. (for ZMP, just start firmware exe file, there is no language selection. You can get the firmware update from Creative’s site, go to SUPPORT and then DOWNLOADS).
6. On the Zen- select “reload OS” (on ZMP I believe it is Erase or Reload Firmware, something like that, don’t have it in front of me).
7. As soon as it flashes up “reload new firmware now via USB” click the
language button
8. Now the pc should find it and allow you to re-load the
firmware. (it may take a few attempts)
9. Once complete, click close and restart the pc. Everything should now
be fine.
10. Once all is working, you can re-install WMP11 and it will work fine.
