Hi,

It sounds as the battery has a fault. It is still under guarantee, so take it back to the store after backing up your music on your computer.

Best of luck,

Chris-ZA.

There are two things possible.
1) You have defective re chargeable batteries in your GoGear.
2) There is some short circuit because of which the re chargeable cells are discharging.
Either way you should get the system changed. If you want to confirm if its the battery defect or GoGear. Charge the system fully and play music continuously. If the Go Gear plays for about 4 hours with out break---- its not the battery but the charging system.

Cant turn on my mpio fl 350 because of discharged battery


Hey! I experienced the same problem as you, found my FL350 wich had been laying in a closet for 2 years, completely discharged.

What I did, was to connect the FL350 to the USB port, a message popped up saying like "USB device can not be recognized", ignore it, it will keep popping up, but don't mind that. I then left the FL350 in my PC with the PC turned on, and left it over night. Today I could turn the MP3 player on, resulting in that the PC found the device and it began charging. So I will leave it there, and in two hours I will go out running, listening to it :D Hope this works for you.

Creative Zen won't charge or be regonized by my computer.


I have a Zen Vision: M and often have the same problem if it is completely discharged and not used for a couple of weeks.
When I plug it into my laptop I get a message saying 'This USB device has malfunctioned and is not recognized" (or something like that) and the unit will not power on. However, if I leave it attached for about an hour it eventually comes to life.

Do you have a wall charger, or do you only charge bu USB from your PC?

My advice would be:
- Attach it via USB to your PC
- Leave is for 1-2 hours and (hopefully) is should come back to life.

If not, try a different USB cable - I used to use the standard USB cable that came with my Zen Vision: M to charge (and sync) with my PC, but recently my PC does not recognize the device when using this, so I switched to a different USB cable (the one that came with my Sony Ericsson phone) and now it works first time, every time.

Won't Charge


I had the same problem. The next day I tried it again. It took about 5 hours to charge and then it froze. There were also songs on it that we had not recorded. This was in a sealed case! I took that one back the next day and got a new one. Today we charged that one and it only took about 2 hours. As soon as my daughter tried to go through the screens it froze again. You can't even shout it off! I am very frustraited!!!!!!
