    Computer stopped recognizing that Creative Zen V Plus is plugged in. The USB port works for thumb drive. The Zen is recognized by my laptop.



    Wonder if my registry cleanup program could have caused a problem (RegCure). I've been using RegCure for several months without incident.

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

  3. Power on the player.

  4. The reset hole for the ZEN V / V Plus is located on the left side with the player facing up.

You should put in the istallation cd before hooking it up. Then afterwards, it will ask you how you want to put music on your Zen when you hook it up.

Hope this helps.

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.

Zen touch stuck in recovery mode and with no firmware the firmware update states that the player is not connecte


Step 1:
The Zen V Plus is an MP3 player that can play music and videos; you can also view pictures and listen to FM radio. Often, MP3 devices require upgrades. Firmware upgrades to the Zen V Plus fix bugs and sometimes upgrade the user interface, which can enhance your user experience and correct problems. You can upgrade your Creative Zen V Plus to version 1.32.01 through the Creative website.

Open your web browser and navigate the Zen V Plus support page (See Below). Click here > h Click "Download" under "Firmware" and choose to "Save" it to your computer. Connect your Zen to the computer using the Zen USB cable. Double-click the file that was downloaded to your computer to start the installation process. Agree to the terms and wait for the files to be transferred and installed onto your Zen.

Hi, I had the same problem with my Zen V Plus. I held the volume + button in and connected the Zen to the computer using the USB cable and the Zen came back to life ! Try it - it might just work like it did for me.

My creative zen v plus is not detected by my pc when connected its screen has reddish lines neither it is shutting down nor it is working


Using the instructions below try Cleanup first, if that doesn't work... (if you have a backup of all your music on your computer), try the format option


This is from Creative's website:
Zen V Plus and Zen V
  1. Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently
insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.
2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.
3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.

It will display the following options:
Clean Up
Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.
Does not affect music files themselves.
Format (All) Caution! Erases all content!
Save a copy of your player's content before formatting.
Reload OS/ Firmware Caution! Erases your player's firmware.
DO NOT select the Reload Firmware option unless you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.
Reboot Reboots the device.

Creative Zen Nano Plus 1 GB


The way to fix it is, on your PC, you make folders on the Zen Nano drive. Title those folders as you want. Then you put all of the audio into those folders. And hopefully when you turn on the device, the audio will be in folders. Good luck.
