  1. Gently push the end of a thin object (such as a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole.
    The reset button for your player is located at the bottom of the player, to the left of the sync adapter port.



  2. Refer to the article below to access the recovery mode and perform a Clean Up.

    SID 64088: Accessing the Recovery/Rescue Mode of your Player

    Note:



    1. Clean Up scans a player\'s hard disk/memory card and removes any invalid links from the music library. It does not affect the working music files at all. It is recommended that you perform "Clean Up" first before formatting or reloading the player\'s firmware.



    2. It is advisable for you to clean up your player regularly if you are frequently transferring files from you computer to your player or vice versa.

Zen Vision M freezing during music upload.


Try to add your music a bit at a time instead of your whole library at once. That will freeze it. You can also try sync with Window's Media Player, which works a lot better than the Creative software.
