My zen vision:M charges on my computer but my computer won't recognize it so I can't transfer songs or do anything with my zen on my computer
Computer doesn't recognize player. It wouldn't charge when using the block sync adapter. I bought a wall charger. Charges fine. I bought a sync cable thinking the block adapter might be bad. The cable charges the player, but computer still doesn't recognize player to download music.
Thanks for any help you can give me.

I've been able to solve the problem I had with transferring files to my Zen Vision M.
I uninstalled all components of Media Source 5 and Zen Vision M Series Explorer on my PC. I then reinstalled them again. I also rolled back to Windows Media 10 (as I recently upgraded to v 11) and unchecked Sync with Zen Vision M in tools/options/devices on WM player. I then run the Clean up in recovery mode on the Zen. When the PC restarts after the installation of the software it will ask for you to connect the player. The PC should now successfully transfer files to the player.
I'm having the exact same problem. My zen is 'charging' but isn't detected anywhere on my pc and I'd leave it charging for days but nothing happens. I've tried different usb ports, reinstalling the software several times but nothing. I recently reinstalled Windows and with my new pc my Zen cannot work on it for some reason?! I put previous files from my old pc onto my Zen hoping that I could transfer them onto my new Windows pc but I fear I've lost the data on my Zen completely. Arggh, any suggestions guys? Please..x
Mine did this too, and I have the exact reason why.
If the first solution didn't work for you (as it didn't with me), follow these instructions
Connect your Zen to the computer
-On your computer, click start, then control panel
-Click on Add Hardware
-Go through this until it shows you a list of things recently added, Creative Zen should be up top somewhere (mine was) with a yellow question mark as the icon
-Click it and have it install it
-When a list pops up asking you if you want to have it do it just this once, or everytime without asking CLICK ON EVERYTIME. Tis is what stopped it from connecting to your computer.
The drivers were not installed.
If that doesn't fix it trythe USB cable Screen Doesn’t come on anymore http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18859 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."
Make sure you have media player 11 If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this. Download recovery tool off creative's website. go to my computer > click on hardware tab >
click on device manager button > in the is next screen on the bottom should have>>universal serial bus controllers
(write these down just in case it cant find them)
right click on them and uninstall
reboot let windows reinstall them Also told Microsoft hotfix causes this problem try uninstalling the last hotfix If that doesn't fix it trythe USB cable
