Also, I wanted to thank you for this site. I was one of those people who couldn't get their Windows to recognize the Zen, so i trouble shot and was completely satisfied. Thanks again.

Ah, Finally fixed it ran clean up several times rebooting each time now lists in the creative software WMP10. All I can think of is maybe the drive became so fragmented.
Thanks for the input and Great site!

There is no reset button. You remove the battery. Read the instructions again.

For the zen ez300 you might want to mention that it's the MENU back button, not the one that's also used to go back to the previous track.

also, disk clean up and reboot did fix my 'stuck on rebuilding' problem.
