Have you tried resetting the mp3 palyer? Push a paper clip into the small hole below the on/off switch. It may come back to life.

Good luck

Hi, I have a Creative Zen Touch 20Gb that isn't charging (USB or mains charger) and isn't recognised by the PC. It will turn on and play the music ok. I want to get the mp3 files off from the hard...

The above thread contains a successful use of Creative with Windows 7, keep reading down the page. Other suggestions have been to try Vista drivers rather than XP. And there was the inevitable suggestion to use Windows XP mode on Windows 7 (but not all versions of W7 have XP mode.)

Zen micro firmware problem

I just got a ZEN Micro 4GB player for free due to Firmware problem. This totally fixed the firmware issue. Windows XP PC with Media Player 10 and the latest driver and firmware from creative. Once I had all that I plugged in my player, let it recognize and then re-flashed to latest firmware. BAM now the play is working perfectly and I can sync music to it. Thanks for the fix.
