Dead Hard Drive?

I was listening to my player this morning when the sound cut off abruptly. The display sceen was a mixed up jumble as though it had cut and paste information over itelf in layers. The display lights up, but the hard drive does not seem to access the info. When I hook up to usb I am toldit is not connected. I've had it about 3 years.... is this the end?

Creative zen malfunction with usb,Device not recognized

It looks like you need to restore the firmware on this players. There is a firmware utility. Sometimes though the creative player will not even be recognized by the firmware utility. Listen to the player and make sure the hard drive spins. If it does you can send it to a Creative Zen Repair service. They will take the hard drive out and write the firmware directly to the hard drive to get you up and running again.

My daughter's new ipod 4gb has picture but won't play sound and the pictures of the artists are all jumbled.

I would try restoring it in Itunes and then sync the musics on to it again. If this has not worked I would format the hard drive when it pops up in My Computer and then restoring it and sync in itunes.

The ipod won't turn on or do anything?

This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Hard disk failure

you could try taking it apart and when you have the hard drive out remove the stickers off the drive, you will see a little hole that the drive arm moves across you can try to force the arm over to the park area, i have tried this on all my bad drives and have never gotten it to work but i have been told it does work.
What i do is replace the drive with a cf flash drive.
