Re: mp3 player won't record plus some other defects
Try format and clean up in recovery mode.
if not, erase firmware and then reload firmware. but make SURE you have the installation disc first. as without it. there will be much pain and frustration(as i am having now)
Also, many bloggers have found that windows media player 11, especially beta version is causing problems. so rollback in add/remove programs to the 10th one and try it again FIRST!

try this: Find the reset hole on the side of the player just below the power/hold switch. Please do not mistake it for the microphone hole at the top. Then push a paper clip or something similar in the hole, and the player should automatically shut off. If your player does not shut off, you will have to wait for the battery to run out and die, but usually the reset hole works.
I had the same problem. I opened my zen V plus and noticed that the recording switch did not have the proper tactile feedback, which means the spring is somehow jammed and the contact blade can open or close the contact randomly. I scratched away the top half of the plastic casing (which was abnormally soft) and removed with a tweezer the tiny blade that closes the contact. I refit the whole thing back together and it works fine. Obviously the voice recording function is gone, but personally, I don't care...ht tactile feedback (spring not working properly. So I decided
Most probable that either you have downloaded the wrong firmware, or the website has an incorrect link. Make sure u select the right 1 and try again, hope it works (ps, in the url at the top of the page, it should link u to a page that says summet similar to the model of your player such as www.website.com/download/nano.zip as an example...
Try using the installed software to delete first. If that fails, use Windows Media Player. If that fails, Possible firmware upgrade issue. Reset first - located on side of player. If that fails, Creative actually has a step by step tool you can use at: http://220.127.116.11/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=107,E=0000000000366987556,K=3577,Sxi=5,Kb=ww_english_add,VARSET=ws:http://us.creative.com/,Case=obj(26219)
Zen V is dead "If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
