Device is hanged in rebuilding


Turn it off completely. Press the reset button using a paper-clip. Then afterwards, flash again the firmware.

My m3 player says rebuilding and it won't stop saying that I don't know what to do. (it's said rebuilding for a couple of days)


Hi


Try and reset the player by inserting a pointed object inside the small hole, press and hold for 5-10 seconds to let the player reset. If this doesn't work then connect the player with the computer and let it charge. Please check this link for details---

Turns on and then goes to rebuilding screen then says firmware problem but computer doesnt register that its hooked up


check on the zen site and make sure you have the current version for your zen.
download it and do a rebuild with new firmware.
this mp3 has a hard drive, the exact one that the ipod has. They are not immuned from crashing for sure.
But doing a reinstall of the software will probably help alot.

Creative Zen Freezes on Rebuilding


My Zen locked when I turned it on. It wouldn't play the track the screen was on so I pressed the reset button and turned it on again. It was then still locked on the same track so I tried turning it off which then froze as it was shutting down. After another reset it went through the rebuild screen then locked again. I then used the above fix (pin in reset, then hold play and power switch down). Taking me into the kind of bios screen I formatted the contents. Then added my library again. It's now working fine.
This is the second Zen I've had because the first one had the same problem so I took it back without trying to fix it. Both times the problem occured when I had my Zen plugged into my car stereo auxiliary jack whilst switching the ignition on in my car. I can't understand why this would cause the problem but I'll avoid doing that in future.

Rebuilding


You need to use the Recovery Tool from Creative's website 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:

Creative Zen – Formatting
