A little known feature on this player is the ability to use bookmarks, up to 10 of them. Many of you listen to podcasts or audio books which may be fairly lengthy and if you have to stop in the middle of what ever you're listening to, normally when you go back to your player you would have to start all over again.<br /><br />A note about <span style="font-style: italic;">"resuming playback":</span> If you shutdown during playback of a podcast or audio book (not pausing or stopping playback first) your Zen will automatically resume playback when you start it back up.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Zen V Plus Bookmarking</span><br /><br />You can insert bookmarks during playback. A bookmark helps you mark a point within a track, so you can return to it at a later time.<br /><br />You can use up to 10 bookmarks at any one time.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">To insert a bookmark:</span><br />
<li>In the Now Playing screen, press the Options button and select Set Bookmark .</li>

<li>Select a bookmark number.</li>
<li>Your bookmark is assigned to the selected bookmark number. If all 10 bookmark numbers have been assigned, you can replace an existing bookmark with the new one or you can delete a previous bookmark.</li></ol><span style="font-weight: bold;">To delete a bookmark:</span><br /><br />

Boot the ZVM into Recovery Mode and select Cleanup from the menu. This will reset any user defined settings, including the passwords.
To boot the player into Recovery Mode, do the following:
Insert a paperclip, earring stud, or other slender, unbreakable item into the reset hole located at the bottom of the player to press the reset button inside. You should feel a "click" when you've pressed the button. Press and hold the reset button.
While holding the reset button, slide the power switch toward the power icon and hold it there. Let go of the reset button.
When the Zen bootscreen appears, release the power switch.

take needle or a thooth pick and push it in.....theres actually a small button in that whole that would restart your zen without wiping away all the memory......sooo yaaa.....

Hi! I think you should try this (i've already tried it and it works):
1- Unplug your Zen from your Computer.
2-Turn off your Zen (if you can't do it, press the "Reset" button)
3- BEFORE turning on your Zen, press your "Play" button and hold it while you turn on.
4-When a format menu appears, select the "Format All" option (you'll loose all your Zen data).
5-When the format menu reapears, select the "Reboot" option and listo!
You have your Zen as new and should not have problem. Good luck!
Hi - I know this response is way late to help you, but I was having the same problem. I could turn the zen on fine, but as soon as I tried to play music it would freeze and I couldn't turn it off. Using the reset button didn't help any since it would still freeze if I tried to play anything.
But I found reformatting the entire zen totally fixed it.
-directions- Connect your zen to your computer, go to windows explorer, click computer on the side bar, and your zen should be under "portable devices". Click on it. You should now be viewing the "storage media". Right click and select "Format...". This completely resets the zen, clearing any preferences or media you put on it and the freezing problem.
It was annoying putting all the pictures, videos, and itunes back onto my zen, but at least it works now. Since I've reformatted it, I have had no problems.
Hopefully this helps others who experience this problem. --Lillian
My creative zen nano plus 1GB bought 6 months back, when connected to the comp it hangs...then after long time it gives an error message that write file delayed in F:. I didn't even try to write any file...the right click also hangs the computer after long time
