I've already downloaded the recovery tool from creative download page, but when is upgrading the firmware and say "player is now rebooting, please wait--- it get stuck again... my computer only recognize my player when i start it from the recovery mode screen and it says docked at the bottom...

When you say above that you went through the format/reload firmware option, did you run the firmware upgrade from the download or through the recovery tool? 


I'm in your base killing your doods!

when i do that from the recovery mode nothing happens, just says that the firmware was erased and that i have to reload it using the usb cable. when i connect the zvm to the computer it says docked and i can't use the recovery mode menu anymore, so i run the software update from the computer.

sometimes when i connect the zvm (in recovery mode) to the computer, i can move in the recovery mode menu, but my pc don't recognize the zen.
