You need to update the player's firmware - go to the manufacturer's website. Once the firmware upgrade is in place, the message will go away.

Still messed up.


hi yes it should be in recovery mode when doing this
does the firmware tell you when to connect the mp3 player to computer once in recovery mode open firmware file then when it asks to connect then plug into your comp if it dont work this way then plug into comp before opening firmware file give this way a try also.
But the mp3 player needs to be in recovery mode whilst doing this

if this still dont work then try a different usb port failing this then their is a problem with either the cable or usb port or conection on mp3 check cable and connections at both ends make sure no dirt or paper is stuck in mp3 end ok

Let me know what happens ok

Messed Up.


hi what you need to do is put the mp3 into recovery mode to do this follow these instructions
1 with mp3 player off push hold/lock button to lock position(this is what you press to stop you pressing buttons when its playing it locks the buttons out) switch this to lock
2 press and hold rec button on left hand side keep holding down
3 whilst holding rec switch mp3 player on keep holding rec button untill it comes on it should now say recovery mode.

Dont do this whilst plugged into computer and dont plug into computer after its in recovery mode untill told to

once its in recovery mode got sandisk website and download the latest firmware once you have downloaded it onto your computer then open the file on your computer it will then talk you through the rest of the procedure this will solve your problem.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Still wont work


try downloading the MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?

I hope it won't keep freezing on you after the update

Load main image failed, Switch to recovery mode"


If it still plugs in and works properly, you can try to format it or try to update its firmware with the firmware updater that you can download from sandisk.com and then click on download.

Recovery Mode


The same problem happened to my sister when she reformatted. All you have to do is go on the internet fine the latest firwire software and download it on to your Zen V Plus.

My mp3 player is broen HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!


I`ve had the same problem twice, it seems the player erases the whole firmware when this happens. You can fix this by plugging it to your computer in recovery mode, this will allow you to reinstall firmware.(Search google for zen nano plus recovery mode to find instructions.)
