Question about Creative Labs ZEN SLEEK MP3 Player
Last night I turned on my Zen Sleek Photo, and all of a sudden it just froze up right after the logos. I had trouble with it freezing up before so I just hit the reset button like usual, then about halfway through the rebuilding it just goes to the now playing area and about 2000 songs are gone... I know they're in there somewhere because the information says 2.9 GB remaining and only 100 something tracks. I tried to plug it in the computer today and my computer won't even acknowledge that it's connected but the player says it's docked.
I usually delete songs off my computer after syncing and also a lot of songs were already on there since my cousin gave it to me for christmas (without the software) but it's been doing fine for a while.
One time before it delete some songs, but it was only 100 or so and they were all on my other MP3 player so that was no problem. I looked through here and tried one suggestion of resetting then powering down and charging it, but I held the power button down throughout all the logos and it didn't work.
I hope someone can help me figure this out, otherwise I'll have to try and get back all those songs. Thanks in advance
When I tried the above solution my zen photo would not power on. I then tried holding the power button while putting a paper clip in the reset button and it powered up to the Creative Logo

1. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.
2. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.
It will display the following options:
Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.

Thanks for your solution. I was so depressed because of the same problem but I've followed your suggestion and now my player is working perfectly fine. All my play lists are back and its icon is showing on the system.
Thanks A Ton :)

ok, first you will need to let it rebuild as far as it will go without interuption. Then once it gets stuck... take a a clothes pin or a real slim piece that will fit into the reset hole. The reset button is near where you would normally plug it in for data transfer or power supply. Now your player will restart, you shouldn't lose any infomation at all by doing this. After you do this, you need to try and press the power button so you can power the system down. If you are able to power the system down, that is good... then after it is off, you will need to plug it into your computer to charge... or plug in your wall charger in order to charge the system. Once plugged in... leave on charge over night. The next day... unplug the system from the power supply. Try to let it sit for a few moments before you do anything to it... After letting it sit, try powering it on... If it starts to try to rebuild the library, then while it is doing so, lay it on a desk and do not move it until done. After that... if it comes on as normal... it is fixed. However, this is a problem I have had with mine too! So if it does not work after that... you may try to contact me at [email protected] Thanks and I hope I was able to help you with your Creative product!
