    • My Zen V plus freezes everytime I switch it on and whenever I reset it rebuilds the library and does the same thing again.

    • My computer has also stopped recognizing it.

    • This is a recent problem and my zen was working perfectly well before now.

    • Please help!

    zen v was rebuilding library and when it came back on, most of the music was gone! now when we plug it in to try to reload music, it says "your player is not connected. please connect your zen v to the computer". this happens on both my computers. the funny thing is when you do plug it in to the computer, the computer shows that it is plugged in and makes a little noise. help!! this is the second zen v we've gone through. my daughters just froze one day and never worked again...would not reset, nothing!

Suggestion: uninstall the failed portable device in Device Manager.
================================================
Note: You should already have the application for your portable device installed on your computer before continuing.
1. Go to Device Manager and make sure that your portable device is not reporting any problem. If it is, uninstall it.
2. Reconnect your portable device. The computer should detect it now.

Creative Zen V Plus will not charge using an adapter


Install the software included with the Creative Zen V Plus. Many problems with the MP3 player can be resolved by installing or updating the software included with the device. Use the CD that came with the player to make the install, or log on the Creative Zen V Plus product page on the company website to download the latest firmware:

Creative zen v plus start up screen freezes when switching on


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 v plus - won't connect


I found the solution. When I connected my device to computer, it was unknown. I tried to reinstalled the software; however, the problem was still going on. To solve it;

1. Connect your device to your computer,
2. My computer, system properties, device manager
3. Find Creative zen which has attention icon
4. Click the Zen and then delete it
5. Plug out your device, and plug it again. That's all.

Turn on problem and detect by PC


I had a similar problem yesterday with my Creative ZEN V 2GB. After charging it with the USB, it wouldn't turn back on. No lights or anything.
I read somewhere that if you hold down the power switch for a few seconds, and while holding down stick a pin or needle into the reset switch on the side, it will reset the player.
Amazingly, this did work for mine. It now powers on with no problems. Hope that helps.
