    I hear no clicking sound when i power it on. It just gives me the opening screen then it goes to the creative screen, the backlight fades and then nothing it stays in that state and to power it off I have to physically remove the battery. I have even left it on for 5 minutes or so to see if it changes screens and still..................nothing!!!

    Well, same prob. Freezez at "Creative" logo screen. Did the whol formatting solution that the Creative website said to do, left it like that - screen says "formatting" - and the next MORNING it was off. Battery died. Recharged it and the frozen screen still happened. So, I think it even froze on the formatting screen until the battery died. Any solution to both frozen screens??

The HD is dead if you can hear the click sound when you power it on.
