I had the same problem. I found the solution online somewhere and I fixed mine, but it only worked inconsistantly, but better than not at all. You have to completely dissemble the micro and flick something within the harddrive.

This may have the same problem alot of Creative/Ipods develop.
If the hard drive inside it fails, it just sits there trying to get info from the drive. The same thing will happen to a PC with a dead hard drive. It will hang for ages while the system tries to communicate with the drive.
A replacement drive can be purchased, but they are not cheap or easy to find as you could imagine.

My computer wont reecognize my creative zen 2 GB

You don't have enough room on your drive to do this. I had the same problem. I took all my router ports off and connected just my creative vision player only and it worked. Computer system was over loaded.

My laptop comes on but the screen stays blank??

Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot. It worked for me! Just shutdown, put the battery back in you're good to go. Worked for me so definitely worth a try.
Good luck

Creative Zen V Plus Frozen on the product title screen

this helped me as after it rebuilds the libary then it always froze on a song let the battery run out!
this worked for me straight away and i had tried loads of other ideas this actually came from the tech guys !!!
  1. Detach the player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
  2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on the player.
  3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button
  4. Select Format (All) and select Yes to format the player.
  5. After the player has finished formatting, select Reboot.
  6. Re-transfer the tracks to the player.

Screen Frozen

This is not a Zen Vision:M. Likely a Zen Micro. The hard drive is bad and will need to be replaced.
