Wont turn on

You can reset the player without losing the music, but Repairs and firmware Updates will result in songs being erased.

Make sure the hold/lock switch is not activated.
If it is not, then try a different USB port on your computer.

If you get the same result:
Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

My creative zen has froen and wont turn on

Try another PC or another USB port
Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged

Check for firmware update on Creative's website
Get Recovery Tool from creative

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

If all else fails, check with this guy:

Have fun!

you need to go under settings then click on usb modes then change the mode to msc. if you dont have the option of usb mode, then do the following:
1) Download the sansa firmware updater from the sandisk website (
2) The program then turn off your sansa. (unplug it first).
3) Now move the hold button to the right and then hold down the center (round) button and then the power button.
4) Once your sansa is on, you can stop pressing the other buttons.

  4. Hold down the Play button and connect the Mp3 Player to USB port (Hold down the play button while you connect the device, you should see a message (normally after 8 seconds) like: Initializing on YP-U2J Updater program screen)
  5. After you hear the Windows chime "new device found" or the message "Initializing" on YP-U2J Updater, you can now remove your hand from play button.
  6. Check the Format Data Area checkbox (By clicking the yes button, you will lose all of your data in your Mp3 player)

Update: Please keep in mind that if you sync your Mp3 player with a computer that has a Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you should do these steps again

Helpppppppp. my zen v plus 2 gb

ZenV Freezes
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?

If your PC still recognizes the player, you can try to drop the firmware update onto the players mass storage area. Once you disconnect the player from the USB cable, the player should begin to update the firmware.

If this doesn't work, let me know. I can look into an alternative method for fixing your player.
