Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player
I HAVE A ZEN V PLUS 1GB THAT WILL NOT POWER ON. THE PC DOES NOT RECONIZED IT. I CAN HEAR THE PC CLICK WHEN I PLUG IT INTO THE PC, BUT MY COMPUTER DOES NOT SHOW IT, NOR THE SYS TRAY.
Try plugging it in to a USB port and then perform a reset. It worked for me. Doing it in that order worked but if I tried doing one or the other.... no worky.

Nothing worked for me but I fixed it by taking the front off (i.e. the lower front cover) and trigering RESET while connected to my PC via USB.
Having frozen (which seems to happen from time to time with ZENs), it was not possible to fix it via the simple RESET procedure because the RESET switch was not being pressed by inserting a straightened paperclip through the RESET hole.
To take the front off start near the reset hole (not the other side). Replace in the reverse order (i.e. last out=first in).

I used a staple bullet, bend it straight, then poke it to the reset button while the MP3 player is connected to the PC
it works to me

Start in recovery mode (hold down play).
Select reload firmware.
Download the latest firmware from support.creative.com.
Plug the player into the computer, and reinstall firmware.

My Zen V Plus wouldn't turn on, even with the battery fully charged. Creative site had some suggestions, one of which was to plug it into a USB port on your computer, use a paper clip in the reset hole, then try and power it up. It worked for mine.
