Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player
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
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:
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.

SOURCE: my zen is freezeing
1. I'd try a system clean up first (instructions below)
2. definitely upgrade your firmware (http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/)
3. If all else fails, back up all your music on your PC and format it (instructions below)
.... from Creative's site
Reset, Format or Clean Up a Zen Vision:M If your player stops responding, you can reset it. To reset the player, push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. This should not cause you to lose any data or audio tracks, unless you were in the middle of transferring an audio track.
To reset Zen Vision:M to factory default settings:
Press on the Menu/Back button on your player, and select System, and then Reset.

This sounds like it might be a hard drive problem. Have you tried to put it into Recovery Mode so you can troubleshoot it? Put a paperclip in the Reset hole while holding the power button in the On position. Then release the paperclip and continue to hold the power button until it goes to the Recovery Mode screen. You should at this point try Format and Scan Disk/Cleanup, then Reboot. If it still gets stuck at the same spot, then its going to be a hardware failure.
