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!

I have a very weird problem to talk about:

Got my Zen X-Fi reloaded, headphones were plugged off. I didnt disconnect properly from the PC, that's probably why it didnt start when I pressed the button, so I pressed the reset instead. Zen X-Fi startet, but when I wanted to connect the headphones the jack seemed to be blocked by some glass-like, lamp like thing! Tried to push in, but plug got blocked by something halfway in.

I didnt do anything strange with the headphone plug, I swear, and I find this very very strange! Any advise, or suggestions where this is coming from?

Thanks

the headphone jack and the jack used by the charger or usb cable are 2 different jacks
is there any foreign object in the headphone jack? or is it because you didnt push in the plug hard enough?

no, i've actually done that before with a motherboard's cpu socket when a friend of mine dropped bread crumbs into the holes where the pins go.  99% isopropyl because 1)alcohol doesnt conduct electricity 2)99% is pure enough not to corrode the metal of computer hardware.  sometimes it takes some sort of fluid to get rid of crap that gets stuck in your hardware.  99% isopropyl alcohol is the safest way.  you can find it an just about any computer store.  not your local pharmacy even tho its the same type of alcohol as rubbing alcohol.
