My Zen Vision M is not recognized anymore by my pc. Windows XP.

Hi the USB port had gone out or your USB cable is bad. The vision M players are bad about the USB port just all the sudden not working. I want look damaged or anything but no matter what you do the player want connect. If the USB cable is not the problem the USB port is and your main board will have to be replaced.

If you need any more help, parts or your player repaired you can go to my repair service web page and e-mial me, call me or contact me threw my Ebay user name at from my web page at Thanks

Creative Zen M:vision - can't turn on/off, permanent blue light

Well, i didn't charge mine over night, was listening to it in the evening while doing some chores and all of a sudden it stopped playing, Blank screen and permanent Blue light. I tried to turn if off but it didn't respond so i left it. In the morning, it went off itself (guess the battery was low). So i connected to the computer and inserted the ZEN CD. As i was exploring the CD looking for a solution, then all of a sudden the screen came up with a note "Rebuilding..." after 5 secs it came on. With all my files intact! I hope this wud be helpful, You could give it a shot, after all there's nothing to loose!

Suddenly my creative zen vision m 30GB turned off and will not power back on. It will not enter recovery mode or respond to being plugged in. any ideas of whats wrong, and is there a way i can fix it?

have you tried to plug into AC yet? once mine simply refused to turn back on after a nice freeze, the reset hole did not work, and Pc did not recognised the player. It only entered recovery mode (automatically) when I used the AC charger as a last resort. if the recovery screen comes up, select reboot...

Doesn't turn on

If charging by USB is not charging your player enough to even be able to power up, then you're going to have to get hold of an AC wall charger that plugs into the ZVM's round DC-IN jack (on the sync adapter). PSP chargers work perfectly, if you have one. Let it charge for a few hours this way, then post back.

Zen Vision M freezing during music upload.

Try to add your music a bit at a time instead of your whole library at once. That will freeze it. You can also try sync with Window's Media Player, which works a lot better than the Creative software.

Screen Frozen

This is not a Zen Vision:M. Likely a Zen Micro. The hard drive is bad and will need to be replaced.
