Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

Creative Microphoto MP3

My player keeps freezing. I take out the battery and then the library re-builds. Then it erases my whole library and I have to download it again. This happens all the time. Now my computer doesn't recognize that the USB cable is connected to the MP3. What the heck is going on?

You may want to change the memory module on your player. In my honest opinion, however, it would probably be cheaper to simply buy a new player if the firmware upgrade did not help.

Try a firmware upgrade off of the creative website and let me know how it goes and whether it helps. I see a lot of players that have this problem.

good luck and hopefully this works

Sounds like a hardware issue, do you have warranty on the player?

Erased firwire by accident


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

Freezes at "rebuilding library"


I just found this on another website and it seems to be working so give it a shot


Listen!!!!! Anyone having problems try this before you blame the product. Turn off player........remove battery.......hold on button ON and put battery back in while still holding the power button on. When power comes on release the power button. You should now see a clean format and re-boot screen. Use the clean function two times. After the second time go down to reboot and should be fine. Worked for me. The Zen Micro Photo is a sweet mp3 player. Dont blame the product for something YOU most likely did. This will fix 99% of your players problems
