SOURCE: my creative zen keeps freezing!

When you encounter a song that is freezing your zen, you need to delete it from the zen. At that point try to transfer it again. If it is copy protected then you may need to remove the copy protection.


The "iTunes format" is nothing more than AAC. The Creative Zen will play unprotected iTunes Plus tracks as well as CD rips from iTunes (M4A). Any DRM'ed tracks that you may have purchased through iTunes will not play on Zen.

google for "hymn project" or "myfairtunes" for iTunes DRM removal. (And for "FU4WM" for WMA DRM removal.)

Alternatively, you can always burn the DRM'd tracks (copy-protected songs), then rip them so they are no longer protected.

try this...push a pin into the reset hole in the bottom of the player while at the same time holding down the play and power buttons. This should bring up the recovery screen. Then run the "clean-up" function. That will probably fix the problem and will not delete your music. If you reformat or dump the firmware, you will lose your music files.

SOURCE: Creatve Zen freezing at rebuilding

Try using a different computer or a different USB cable. It is possible that the Windows mass storage driver is having issues. You may also want to try to download the newest software from Creative and install that. You may also want to try to plug it in and then press the reset button and see if it detects it when it restarts.
Also try putting an SD card into the expansion slot and see if it detects it as as mass storage device.
If none of the above work and it is still under warranty (less than 90 days) I would send it to Creative for repair or replacement. If it is out of warranty, Creative's repair costs may not make it worth fixing. When my out of warranty player needed fixed they were going to charge 125 USD and I only paid 200 USD for it about a year earlier. When it finally got to be too hard to deal with I opted for an iPod. Granted they are more expensive but the support is better and the warranty is 1 year.

Cheers and best wishes.

I had this same exact problem. To solve it I plugged into the computer (if computer doesnt read it its ok ) then pressed the reset button for about 5 seconds. you should see a screen . Then press the play and power buttons on at the same time and you should get a recovery screen. You have three options. from ther you can rebooot and automatically upgrade the firmware after its been downloaded from the creative website. Please let me know if this helped you and write me back if you have more questions. Thank you , lahuntress

Zen Vision M freezing during music upload.


Try to add your music a bit at a time instead of your whole library at once. That will freeze it. You can also try sync with Window's Media Player, which works a lot better than the Creative software.

Zen Micro Photo...freezes at Creative Logo


The microdrive is bad. Unfortunately you now have a brick. Microdrives are pretty expensive; you're best bet it to buy another MP3 player.
