"Hard-disk Problem"... I'd just like to confirm once more that smacking the player on its rhs while turning it on works.I had to smack it fairly hard though so don't be afraid!! I didn't try smacking it till I checked out the threads above so thanks everyone I'm a happy man again!! :)

HD for Zen Sleek Photo 20GB

Hitachi microdrives

What people have figured out is they can remove the uber expensive Hitachi drives, and replacing them with much cheaper (and lower capacity) CF cards.

Can't reinstall Firmware

It only sees the player if you are using Windows Media Player 10! Try a fresh computer. Get it to see the Zen Sleek by updating the driver. Load Media Player 10 (Not 11) and try the update firmware program again. Best of luck

Zen sleek frozen after trying to delete songs

Why does technology make you work for what you already paid good money for? Have you tried going into Recovery Mode? You do this by holding down the Play/Pause button while triggering the Reset button. Once there, you have four options. Try selecting Disk Cleanup and then Reboot. You might need to re-Sync a few things but it's worth a shot. Good luck.

Zen sleek 20Gb

Hi, I had the same problem with my Zen Sleek. The problem turned out to be caused by a loose connection to the hard drive. I opened up the device, and saw that the cable was loose, so I attached it firmly, put it back together and all was well again. To take it apart; First peel off the front panel - the one with the slider and buttons. It's only glued on, it should come off easily. Then using a knife or small screwdriver, pop off the end panel - the one where you connect the cable to the pc, not the one with the power button. When this comes off you will see a silver panel held in place by two tiny screws - philips-head type. Unscrew these and this panel will come off, and the whole device should slide out easily. Now that you have it out of the shell, it should be pretty easy. The slim silver piece attached to the green circuit board by two wires, one red and one black, is the battery. Make sure it's firmly connected. The other thing, probably surrounded by blue plastic and with an orange cable connecting it to the circuit board, is the hard drive. In my case this was loose, and just had to be re-connected. I'm sure that doing all this voids some warranty or other, so don't do it unless this is a last resort and you're about to throw the thing in the bin. :-)
