Usually its 0000 or depending how many numbers. all zeros. just do a clean up. insert pin in reset hole while holding down power button, then let go, select clean up, let it sit and do its business, then when done, reboot

Dont know how to put stuff on my ZEN V PLUS 4GB


if your zen comes with a video converter then slip into you r pc to install. for downloading music you would have to plug your zen into the pc go to windows media player or whatever you have and simply sync your music on to your zen.

What you are going to want to do first is to try reloading/updating the firmware. Follow instructions in this link. After updating let me know if you are still having a problem. Also, what are the warranty/return details? Good luck.

Creative Zen V Plus Bookmarks


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 /> <ol> <li>In the Now Playing screen, press the Options button and select Set Bookmark .</li> <li>For ZEN V Plus, you will need to press and <span style="text-decoration: underline;">hold</span> the Options button.

Help frozen up zen vplus 4gb


I had the same repeating problem with my Zen V Plus 2GB. There is a tiny hole on the left side of the player, underneath the on/off switch. Stick a paperclip in there and press gently to reset your player. I lived for 6 months letting the battery wear itself out before I discovered this reset hole. I finally found the offending piece of music and deleted it from the player. I haven't had any problems with my Zen freezing since deleting that song. Pay attention to whether it always freezes on the same media, that might be the source of your problem.

Hope this helps!

Zen v plus problem


If you don't mind losing your music that you stored (not too sure if you do lose your music, but just in case),
find the reset hole on the side of the player, below the power/hold switch, push it with a paper clip or something of that size.

If that doesn't work, wait for the battery to die completely, then charge and turn it back on.

STUCK in RECOVERY MODE


Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.

If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently

insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.

2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.

3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.



It will display the following options:

Format (All)

Caution! Erases all content!

Save a copy of your player's content before formatting.
Reload OS/ Firmware

Caution! Erases your player's firmware.

DO NOT select the Reload Firmware option unless you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.
Reboot Reboots the device.
