If it's able to be recognized by your computer, try uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them, to do so go to start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager- then find your device under removable storage(most likely) and right click and click on uninstall....then reboot the computer, once it's rebooted, plug in the zen again and reinstall the drivers...if you don't have the drivers, here they are. then after that (if it doesn't work) update the firmware here

I panicked when my Zen failed to start and sent the email before looking further on your site. All I had to do was go into recovery mode perform a clean and then all worked OK.

Great site by the way - really helpful

Creative Zen MicroPhoto 8GB, in recovery mode, the device is not connected


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.

Micro photo mp3 freezes


The microdrive is bad. You'll need to buy another player, since its too expensive to buy the microdrive; it costs more than half what the player costs.

Creative 8gb mirophoto freezes at logo


I suppose that you have a bad hardisk. I have repaired several models of Creative Zen including the hardisk types (Zen Micro, Microphoto, Neeon, Zen 20 Gbytes, and your problems points to a bad hardisk symptoms. Either the disk or the read/ write head stuck up. Do you hear clicks in the player upon startup? If yes, then do the following procedures: If you're out of warranty, then you might want to open your player, and do some repair yourself, but be very careful. Somebody has posted on how to dismantle the zen microphoto, please search for the site. Once you got to the hardisk, carefully remove it from the player... Remove the sticker. There's some holes in the cover, can you see the disk and the read/ write shaft? Insert a piece of wire or anything that can be used to move the shaft a little, again be very careful. AVOID SCRATCHING THE DISK OR, Move it to the right. If you're lucky to have just a jammed or stucked shaft, then you just save bucks. Replace everything and test your player. You might want to modify your player by replacing the hardisk into a compatible compact flash. it is the same size and same pinouts. A step-by-step procedure has been posted somewhere, please search for that. If you're player powers up and freezes on creative logo, or go to the recovery mode directly, then your player still works, and you just got a hardisk problem. try replacing it. I'm lucky enough to have a warehouse in my area here in the Philippines who sells surplus Creative mp3 players (various models and products)for a very cheap price, sold asis. So I have ample stocks of boards and parts for my repairs.

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.
