I have bought a new netbook and tried to put music onto my Creative Zen microphoto, but it says that no device has been detected. Even though it charges so I know the USB and cables are OK. I had this...


Unplug the device from the system, turn it off entirely, allow for some 10min and power it again before you plug to your netbook. Or you could plug to the netbook first before powering the device if the first idea did not solve the problem.Lastly, turn off or restart your netbook while the device remain plugged in.You may be prompted to insert the installation disc if your Creative Zen Microphoto device is not a "plug and play" depending on which windows platform you are operating.Goodluck!

Zen microphoto won't start fully - frozen


I panicked when my Zen failed to start and sent the email before looking further on your site. All I had to do was go into recovery mode perform a clean and then all worked OK.

Great site by the way - really helpful

Start up only shows creative logo


hmm.. it's stuck on that?

try pressing the reset button (usually on the back), to hardware reset it to the factory defaults. if that doesn't work, it's time to either call the manufacturer or extended warranty provider (if it's still under one), or give it a proper funeral :~)

Creative 8gb mirophoto freezes at logo


I suppose that you have a bad hardisk. I have repaired several models of Creative Zen including the hardisk types (Zen Micro, Microphoto, Neeon, Zen 20 Gbytes, and your problems points to a bad hardisk symptoms. Either the disk or the read/ write head stuck up. Do you hear clicks in the player upon startup? If yes, then do the following procedures: If you're out of warranty, then you might want to open your player, and do some repair yourself, but be very careful. Somebody has posted on how to dismantle the zen microphoto, please search for the site. Once you got to the hardisk, carefully remove it from the player... Remove the sticker. There's some holes in the cover, can you see the disk and the read/ write shaft? Insert a piece of wire or anything that can be used to move the shaft a little, again be very careful. AVOID SCRATCHING THE DISK OR, Move it to the right. If you're lucky to have just a jammed or stucked shaft, then you just save bucks. Replace everything and test your player. You might want to modify your player by replacing the hardisk into a compatible compact flash. it is the same size and same pinouts. A step-by-step procedure has been posted somewhere, please search for that. If you're player powers up and freezes on creative logo, or go to the recovery mode directly, then your player still works, and you just got a hardisk problem. try replacing it. I'm lucky enough to have a warehouse in my area here in the Philippines who sells surplus Creative mp3 players (various models and products)for a very cheap price, sold asis. So I have ample stocks of boards and parts for my repairs.

Zen Micro Photo...freezes at Creative Logo


The microdrive is bad. Unfortunately you now have a brick. Microdrives are pretty expensive; you're best bet it to buy another MP3 player.
