Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

New Battery Worked Fine...Until Firmware Update

My battery on my one year old Zen Vision M 30 GB died from non-use (it was left on a bureau and forgotten about for months) - wouldn't turn on. So after reading posts and trying everything suggested on the blogs, I bought a new battery. Hallelujah! That was the ticket! When I went to update my music and such, I discovered that there had been a firmware update, and one who's usually up-to-date with his patches and such, I downloaded and installed it. Well, my battery WAS registering a full charge when I started but when the update rebooted the Zen, it showed that it had no charge, wouldn't recognize the device on my PC and has been charging for about 10 hours overnight without any gain in battery juice. What gives?

My zen vision m 30 gig only comes on when plugged into the mains


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I changed the battery of my Creative Labs Zen Vision M (30Gb) because the old one died, now the hard drive can't start and it won't turn off either, it's getting really hot, so I disconnected the new...


Hi does the new battery have a black label and from Cameron Sino. If so thats your problem. They say the batteries will work in the Vision M but they want. You can go to this link below and get the right battery for a good price. If it turns out that the battery is not the issue then your main board is. But if the player was working fine before the battery went died and now with the new battery you are having all these issues from my experience with the player the battery is the problem.

Charging problems


Your player's internal battery hs died. You will need to obtain a replacement. Check your user manual for size & type, or check it out on the web. Sellers from China offer large range of replacements.

Zen is not connected


I found a solution at a Creative dealer site in the UK....it worked for me when nothing else did.

This unit comes with a "hidden" recovery accessory...be careful in this area if you do not know what you are doing.

Hold the power switch to the left and at the same time use a paperclip to push the Rest button on the bottom of the unit....remove the paperclip and as soon as the Creative logo appears on the screen, release the power switch. A recovery menu will appear. I selected "Clean" from the screen and waited about 5 minutes for process to complete. When that was finished I selected "Reboot"....after it rebooted, my computer recognized the unit. I was afraid that my files (music, pics etc) would be lost, but it was all there in perfect condition.

Hope it helps
