Problem turning on

Ok my FIRST problem was the mp3 player automatically turning itself off after a few seconds of playing unless the battery power was almost gone, or when it hit certain songs, so I installed the firmware as recommended in a couple other similar problems off of the creative site, and now the mp3 player won't even turn on! what happened? light only turns red, and does not play, worked 1 day ago.

SOURCE: creative zen v problems-frozen

I Recently bought a Zen, and it works great. The only problem I found was that it freezes itself from time to time, and the best solution to this problem is on the bottom of your Zen, there is a very small Reset hole. With a needle or a toothpick, gently stick it in, and push lightly. This will allow the Zen to unfreeze, and return back into it's regular mode. All your files will be saved, and kept on to the Zen, so you don't need to worry about losing any of your files.

Any additional help, I'll be glad to answer!

SOURCE: Creative Zen Nano Plus FROZEN!!!

here is a fix if your creative zen nano plus just hang on the creative logo when you turn your player on.
download, Creative ZEN Nano Plus firmware.
you can find it at the creative website, download section.
double click the file you just dl'ed, now make sure your
zen nano player is already connected to your pc when you run the file. it may take a bit of time before your pc can detect your zen nano be patient, a window prompt will soon appear asking if you want to update your firmware with the one youve just dl'ed.
now, dont worry if the firmware is the same as the one already
installed in your zen nano, just continue with the update.
you can also check the box in which there is the option of also formatting the drive. ( note: all files in your zen nano will be lost)
after the firmware is flashed you can now play and transfer files to your zen nano plus.

SOURCE: Zen Sleek not recognized by firmware: not connected msg

I had the same problem with zen v (video). My pc (Xp s. pack 3) recognized the player in device manager, but reloading firmware failed, as that small app. was still asking me to connect it.
I used my friend's pc Xp sp2 with automatic updates disabled and eventually loaded firmware into my zen using ' mp3 player recovery tool' from creative website http://www.creative.com/products/mp3/MP3PlayerRecoveryTool/welcome.asp? (,because that small application - firmware pcfw_l22_1_32_01 didn't recognize player again.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Creatve Zen freezing at rebuilding

Try using a different computer or a different USB cable. It is possible that the Windows mass storage driver is having issues. You may also want to try to download the newest software from Creative and install that. You may also want to try to plug it in and then press the reset button and see if it detects it when it restarts.
Also try putting an SD card into the expansion slot and see if it detects it as as mass storage device.
If none of the above work and it is still under warranty (less than 90 days) I would send it to Creative for repair or replacement. If it is out of warranty, Creative's repair costs may not make it worth fixing. When my out of warranty player needed fixed they were going to charge 125 USD and I only paid 200 USD for it about a year earlier. When it finally got to be too hard to deal with I opted for an iPod. Granted they are more expensive but the support is better and the warranty is 1 year.

Cheers and best wishes.

If it is not a bad soldering joint somewhere, it could be the mode switch. They can sometimes be cleaned with Servisol Video 40, but you might have to replace it.

Even when the battery is fully charged(3.6v) the player turns off by itself in a few seconds. However, when connected to a PC, it continues playing normally.

To the op, you might need to switch it back to MSC mode from MTP mode. You might not be able to play the DRM protected music in MSC mode, but you'll be able to access all the rest.  1. With the unit on and not attached to a computer, press the Power/Menu Button briefly once or twice so the menu is shown. 
2. Scroll down to Settings then press the OK button (round shaped, centrally located) to enter the submenu, next scroll down to the USB option and press the OK button to enter its submenu, highlight MSC, then press the OK button. After the MSC option is enabled, hold down the power/menu button until the unit shuts itself off. Now plug it back into the computer.

(Now you should be able to find some files to delete. Enter any folders/directories if necessary to find files to delete.) 

Unless you have bought and downloaded to your unit protected music from online music stores, you might find it more useful to keep the MSC setting instead of going back to the MTP setting.


To the second poster, you likely downloaded a scam file.  It's sometimes disguised as an mp3 file but it's really likely to be a wma file that has web links that automatically execute when played in Windows Media Player.  Your mp3 player errors when accessing it. Just delete the suspect file(s).
Otherwise you could reformat it or maybe upgrade the firmware. Right-click its icon in My Compter for a popup that allows a format.  Use FAT32.
