Creative Zen Micro not working at all

Have a Creative Zen Micro MP3 player which isn't working. The only way to power it on is to plug it into power source or PC and to turn it off I have to remove the battery.

When it is powered on I have the digital display with the Creative logo but can't navigate the player. When it is plugged into a PC it is not recognised by the creative software

  • Anonymous Jun 27, 2008

    I have 2 and both are doing the same thing. When I hook it up, the computer does not recognize that it is plugged in and will not update. The front display says Creative on both, but does not even show that it is charging. I have to remove the battery to turn it off -

    zen appears to be charging and it trys to be recognized if unplugged and re-plugged but fails on driver search to cd with error:

    The specified service does not exist as an installed service.



    will see if we wait overnight and try it again.



    thks, Pat

Try disconnecting it and then reconnect it back to your pc, it happened to me once and then it was completely dead, nothing happened after it failed to install.

Then I waited the next day and I was about to return it, and I thought that maybe it would work if I connect it and reconnect it back and yeah it worked. it installed successfully.

Let's hope that it will work everytime I connect it from now on, if not I'll probably return it. 'cause I just bought yesterday.

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Creative Zen website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Creative Zen Micro


vista is not supported . you can try this:
you should not have had to install anything for the Zen to work on Vista. If you have installed any Creative software, remove it. Reboot, plug your player in, open Device Manager, and remove the device that shows up representing your player (completely uninstall it). Reboot again, and plug in your player. It should be recognized now.

If that still doesn't work, then boot your player into Recovery Mode, and perform both a Disk Cleanup and a Reformat. Reboot the player and try plugging it in again.
if it still doesn't try another computer and upload the latest firmware to it and then try it on your pc after firmware is loade
