Here, this is what I did to fix this problem. copy and paste from my original post on anythingbutipod.com

"My player is completely charged, I have XP w/SP2 - I can turn it on and listen to the default audio tracks and videos...I just can't get my computer to recognize it AT ALL!"

and then:

also, when I try to allow "everyone" to the USB....I found that in the advanced section I have TWO "everyones".

The one that says "full control" says "not inherited" in the inherited from column...the other says "read" and "machine\system\currentcontrolset......."

Should there be two of them in there??? Because when I try and switch the read to full control, it reverts back as soon as I select apply or ok....I tried deleting it but it re-creates itself soon as I go out of the window.

so I was told to do this:

Sounds like an NT problem. I don't know the exact steps to do this, but you'll need to remove inheritable permissions from that, which will remove the "inherited" attribute, leaving the locally-controllable one.


So open "run" command in the start menu and type "regedit"

From there follow this path...

"hkey_current_config" -> system -> current control set -> Enum -> USB

Do what I copy and pasted above and then plug your Zen V:M in and it should recognize it.

Hi, my ZEN vision m: does not start anymore; when charging the blue light just "flickers", but even after 1 night charging, no possibility to get to the menu


Hi,
The rapid-blinking blue light means that the Zen's battery is too drained to allow the player to turn on.

It can take 24 hours or more to completely recharge the Zen using USB. If you see the blue light blinking slowly when you plug it in, then the player is charging, and you will have to wait for it to finish charging.

If, after leaving the Zen to charge for more than a day, it still does not turn on, then the battery may be defective and not able to be charged anymore. The battery will have to be replaced.

CREATIVE ZEN GONE HAYWIRE


sounds like it might be either a bad firmware driver, which can be erased and reinstalled via the USB connection to your computer and a download from creative. Or the battery has gone bad, in which case you have to have it sent to creative for Repair.

Zen Vision M won't charge


This could be a hardware issue, but try this:
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.

5 flashing blue lights...?


Sounds like your rechargable battery is done for. You can get a new one at newzenbattery.com and open your player yourself extremely easily by just watching a video or reading how to do it. No damage is done or anything and this seems like an easy fix.

Will not charge/turn on (Vista)


have you tried to 'reset'? I belive that kinda "force it on" :) You can then reboot to start it up normally.
