1.download the appropriate firmware from here2.press and hold reset button for 2 seconds 3.run the firmware updater 4.press and hold "play" button while connecting to system. 5.the updater will detect the player and it will upgrade the firmware.
1 get latest firmware. 2 reformate the the player with firmware update. 3 http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/categories.aspx?product=317&post=4 4 make sure the songs are in mp3 formate. just drag and drop them from pc to music folder. good luck worked for mine.
The description that says it holds 250 songs is an estimate - there are zero mp3 players on the market that actually hold the number of songs that the box/product sheet advertises. Those estimates are based on low-quality songs that are approximately 2 minutes in length each. So, it sounds very reasonable that 174 songs would fill the player's memory.
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first.On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer.Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website. Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp If these fail, then: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version). You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

Well the songs you are trying to put on your mp3 player are probably too big. You can change your settings in Windows Media Player or (whatever program you use to sync the songs) to convert the songs to mp3 format and change the quality. I suggest changing it to 128 or lower quality. Hopes this helps you out.
Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.
try downloading the MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.
By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?
I hope it won't keep freezing on you after the update.
Umm, it looks like you have some sort of backup on your computer correct? If you have access to your files as a backup on your computer then we can proceed with a couple of steps to ensure that you have the latest firmware available for your device.
First you will need to update your firmware to the most recent published firmware available by going to the manufacturers website. I have provided a link below: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376
Once you click on this link you will need to download and install the software by clicking on "Download Sansa Firware Updater" which is highlighted in red.
Then you will need to follow the on screen instructions to make sure the process is completed as instructed.
The final step you may want to take is to reset your device to the factory default settings. You can do this by going into the Settings, Scrolling down to "Reset All", it will ask you to confirm if you want to reset, scroll to yes. Your device will reset and reboot.
At this point your new firmware has been installed and you have reset your device. It is a new fresh start for your Sansa MP3 player. Try transferring the music files again and that should do it. Good Luck!
