Go to creative.com. There is a download place where you can get a new firmware. Your crative's firmware needs update. Read before you do something cause you might delete all your songs. I hope this wil help you cause it did the same thing to mine. Goodluck.
My Zen Micro Photo stopped working a few months after I got it. It would load to the creative screen and get stuck and I could hear it making an awful sound. And my computer would no longer recognize it although it would charge. After trying all of Creative's tips for fixing it I gave up and put it in a box and forgot about. Skip ahead a few years, I found it and decided to try again.
After scouring the web for possible solutions the one that seemed to have the best probability of success was the "Caveman Method."
1) Take the battery out.
2) Give it 5 or 6 good whacks on the table
3) Put hold the power button down while inserting the battery to go in to recovery mode.
4) Run the clean app.
5) After it finishes running it will rebuild the library and work as it should.
I just found this on another website and it seems to be working so give it a shot
Listen!!!!! Anyone having problems try this before you blame the product. Turn off player........remove battery.......hold on button ON and put battery back in while still holding the power button on. When power comes on release the power button. You should now see a clean format and re-boot screen. Use the clean function two times. After the second time go down to reboot and should be fine. Worked for me. The Zen Micro Photo is a sweet mp3 player. Dont blame the product for something YOU most likely did. This will fix 99% of your players problems
