    My player gets connected and also shows it is charging but does not retain any charge when I try to switch it on. I don't even see the screen glowing and it says out of charge even after hours of charging.

    No matter how long I leave it in for, it still doesn't charge much. Battery gone again after a couple of songs.

Just connect your Zen onto your PC (NOT LAP TOP) on a USB.
If does not start charging (you´ll see arrow and pause/ play buttons flashing slowly) then you need to RESET your ZEN.
How to reset: You´ll find a tiny little hole by on/off button on the side. With ZEN connected to the PC USB or onto wall charger try turning ZEN on, it doesen´t matter if it turns on or not. Then insert a sowing pin or office paper clip end in this reset hole for a few seconds and release. Give it a couple of seconds and see the lights go off onto charging mode. LEAVE IT CHARGING for 24 hours. Make sure your PC will NOT turn itself on safe mode or hibernates in this period, it has to be ON for charging, at all times.
This is it.

You need to download the software from Creative's site. It will not charge without it. There are people with how-tos to charge with USB charger/Phone USB Charger

Try and reset the player by inserting a pointed object inside the small hole, press and hold for 5-10 seconds to let the player reset. If this doesn't work then connect the player with the computer and let it charge. Please check this link for details---
