Update the firmware, available at support.creative.com:
Creative Zen Try another PC or another USB port Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged Reset Check for firmware update on Creative's website Get Recovery Tool from Creative Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If all else fails, check with this guy: http://www.mycreativefansite.com/2007/05/myzenchecker-tools-guide-to-problem.html

well it shouldnt play the first song in the folder. it should automatically play the song where you left off. and when you are changing the EQ, make sure that you are pressing in the selector key. (the key at the bottom to the right of the volume control keys) as it may take a while to adjust to your volume settings
Maybe your mp3 player is not being recognised by your computer or program your using to put music on.
I really have almost no idea how to solve this,but try plugging it in to another usb port, or reinstalling it on your computer again with an installation cd it came with?
My creative zen nano plus 1GB bought 6 months back, when connected to the comp it hangs...then after long time it gives an error message that write file delayed in F:. I didn't even try to write any file...the right click also hangs the computer after long time
here is a fix if your creative zen nano plus just hang on the creative logo when you turn your player on.
download, Creative ZEN Nano Plus firmware.
you can find it at the creative website, download section.
double click the file you just dl'ed, now make sure your
zen nano player is already connected to your pc when you run the file. it may take a bit of time before your pc can detect your zen nano be patient, a window prompt will soon appear asking if you want to update your firmware with the one youve just dl'ed.
now, dont worry if the firmware is the same as the one already
installed in your zen nano, just continue with the update.
you can also check the box in which there is the option of also formatting the drive. ( note: all files in your zen nano will be lost)
after the firmware is flashed you can now play and transfer files to your zen nano plus.
Recommend you take a look at this Creative MP3 PLayers FAQ site first, it has a lot of info. BTW, I have the Nano (but not Plus) and I think the reset-switch hole they refer to is next to the USB connector on mine.
Go to the Creative Labs website
Back up your files on mp3 player
Try downloading the latest relevant drivers,firmware, and applications.
For example there is a firmware update from Aug 06 that has this fix:
* Resolves the issue of your player (battery level full) turning off, while playing a 128 kbps DRM-protected WMA file.
Download the file double click for installation and then restart your computer. Try it, this may solve the problem.
If not again consult the Creative Labs website for troubleshooting.
