Creative MP3 keeps freezing up

I have a Creative ZEN Micro that freezes up. I turn it on and all it does is display "Creative" and freezes. It started doing this after (when it was working) I was going through some of the menues and it froze. So I removed the battery and put it back in but it hasnt worked since.

    I have the exact same problem. I have a Zen DAP-MD0004 and it keeps freezing up. My roomate told me to throw it away cause the warranty is out on it and it will cost alot to have it fixed. Any advice? Oh by the way, I did the "reset" procedure (pushing the start button at the same time I put the battery back in) and it got stuck at THAT menu too.

    the problem is that my zen freezes on the "CREATIVE" start up screen. i have tryed to format the drive but no progress appears to be made. i have looked up instructions on how to fix the problem but following them still hasnt helped get past the issue.
    is there any way of telling if the formating is working or if the device has frozen?

Hi I have creative zen micro that freezes, can you help?


hi,

Lots of people have the same problem, though noone really knows why. Many are convinced that Creative simply screwed up. None of the firmware updates I've tried fixed it, so the problem is probably hardware-related. Another common problem is that the headphone jack glitches. It's simply too weak. Though Creative has not officially commented this, it appears newer versions don't have the headphone jack problem (at least not as often). Anyhoo, be careful with the connector.

If you still can, I would recommend you to return your Zen Micro and get something else. Otherwise, you can fix the freezing (every time it appears, and it WILL happen again) like this:
1. Shut the player down (if you can). Remove the battery.
2. Hold the power button and reinsert the battery. Keep holding the power button until the player is started up. You should now be on the recovery screen.
3. Run a Disk cleanup. This will delete all your settings, but your songs and playlists will be intact. I don't know about other stuff like calendar entries.
4. After the cleanup is done, choose reboot.
The player will now reboot. After the reboot, your Zen Micro will display "Rebuilding library". After this is done, you should be able to use your player again. Just be ready to do this every few days. It mostly seems to happen when it's been off for a while and the battery power is low.

i hope this will be helpfull to you .

goodluck.......

Zen Micro Photo...freezes at Creative Logo


The microdrive is bad. Unfortunately you now have a brick. Microdrives are pretty expensive; you're best bet it to buy another MP3 player.

Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
