Creative Zen MicroPhoto 8GB, in recovery mode, the device is not connected

Hi,
I have Creative Zen MicroPhoto 8GB which went into recovery mode. I wanted to reload firmware but the software says that the device is not connected. So, I cannot install the firmware to the player. I have another MicroPhoto 8GB, I tried to upgrade the firmware and it works with this one fine. Please, advise how to solve this problem.

Thank you,

    my zen seems to make a noise almost like the hard drive inside is resetting and will not connect to the pc or get past the logo screen on the devise itself

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

    BTW, the "inapporapiraate" ranking is for people who send you an FU or random keystrokes, not for people who give you solutions that have been known to work for your player. at least give me a "thanks for trying" Sheesh! You said your player said "recovery mode," and the method I gave you IS the Windows Recovery Mode method.
