Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player
When i start it with just the battery, it stays on the eax startup logo, then after a few minutes of weird clicking, it takes me to a menu with this on it:
rescue mode v1.13
boot v1.2, HW v0.0.1
when i choose clean up, nothing happens, when i choose format all or reload os, it says "harddisk problem"
when i have the player hooked up to the computer or into an outlet, it repeats the start-up process described above (without the menu part) over and over until i unplug it.
i tried using the reset button but it does nothing but restart it, which doesnt help me at all. PLEASE! I DONT WANT TO HAVE TO BUY A NEW MP3 PLAYER!!! HELP ME OUT!!!
ps - this problem started when i was listening to a track on it, but it randomly started playing about one second of another song, that was played shortly beforehand, at random times. i soon got annoyed with this so i tried skipping the song to see if that would make it stop, but when i pressed the next button it froze up and nothing worked. i tried turning it off and that wouldnt even work, so i ended up having to just take out the battery and put it back it, but when i did, the whole long wait and useless menu thing happend.
Sounds like the hard drive is bad

The exact same thing happened to me and i solved it by dropping the unit from about 6 inches onto my desk.
It made a horrible thud butI think it must have had something stuck because now it all works fine again.
Hope it helps
