Problem with my brand new mp3 player Zen Stone Plus 2GB ( with built in speaker )

Hi .
I have purchased the following Zen Stone Plus 2GB with built in speaker on 24.06.2008.
From day one, it had a charging problem . Initial charging it'snever go beyond 87%.
After using it for 2 days, at the time of recharging , I found my player won`t get dectected in my PC .
I took the set to the vendor for a checkup . He tried to solve it by resetting , formating etc. But he could only able to to format it's sacrificing its 50% of its allocated space.
My vendor then changed the set with a brand new one, againts that faulty one .
Now the new one worked well for 3 - 4 days , but it is now totally dead .
But the set did not give any indication before it become completely dead.
A few dust particles inside the LCD screen was also observed. I can`t understand how come dust particles can enter inside
a player which is sealed box pack .
Next issue is with the battery which CREATIVE promised of giving a backup of approx 20 hrs of continious playback , which with minimal scuffling and with minimal settings lasted for 0 hrs approx ( 50% less than promised ).
Another thing that i must state is the problem of FM Reception . It is simply terrible . In the same area where my mobile's FM reception is fine , Zen Stone's FM failed to give any reception .
I came to know about Zen Stone Plus from of my friend , who is using Zen Stone Plus GB without any problem for long time.
Pls tell me what to do now, since my player is compleately out of order now , and pls suggest me something regarding the issue of battery backup , FM reception ... etc.
Now i am in a total mess . I just dont know what to do with the set that is few days old .
Pls help urgently .
Waiting for any valued suggestion .
Bye ...

  • Queries about Zen Stone Plus 2GB with built in speaker .

    Hi ,
    This one goes out to all friends who have?used Zen Stone Plus with built in speaker for some time ...
    As stated in the box pack of giving a standby time of 20hrs continious playback ...
    What is the approx backup time it offers or rather it should offer on minimal scuffling and minimum change of settings of the player?
    Reply soon .
    Byeee .

    I haven't tested it off yet as I always charge it after one bar of the battery indicator has gone. But thought I try to use it'suntil it's completely flat this time. After listening to 4. albums and minimal playing in the menu the battery indicator still says full.

  • Firmware zen stone plus 4GB with spea

    in the dropdown list when looking for the latest version of the firmware for my "zen stone plus 4GB with speaker" i just can found the "zen stone plus 4GB"..
    this mean that there are no available updates for my device, or that the model with built-in speaker use the same firmware of the one without speaker?
    Thanks for help!

    Hi JLM, am running .0.05e fine and in fact listening to it at the moment. Is there anyway you can regress back to .0.03 to test your theory? Testing a bunch of 28k CBR MP3s is an easy thing to try also.Message Edited by BlueRobin on 0-02-200802:49 PM

  • Can the Zen Stone Plus coexist with iTun

    I am a runner and I am interested in the Zen Stone Plus. I use iTunes and various iPods. How would the Zen software coexist with iTunes.
    Most of the music in my library is from?my own CD's?and not from the iTunes Store. Thank you. Bob Michiel?

    Yes, the softwares can co-exists with each other. However the iTunes would not work with the Zen Stone Plus.

  • Zen stone plus 2gb god **bleep** error

    ok i have the 2gb zen stone plus and my problem is it's a.not being recognised by my computer b. it does nothing to play music store files etc c.when it's chargd i turn it on but all i get is the creative logo and nothing else but the small blue light that is supposed to flash on and of stays on fully instead of flashing on and off. does anyone have any ideas to resolve this problem? preferably knowing how to format my player.

    So the player will not turn on correctly at all? Have you tried it on another PC to see if it's recognised there, and so you could format it and/or update the firmware. Has the player been working correctly until now, or did you just purchase it's

  • Creative Zen Stone Plus 2GB vs. Zen V plus

    Hi. I recently had my Zen Micro just freeze and die after 8 months. I lost ,600 songs. I am now interested in purchasing a flash mp3 for working out and commuting. I've heard good things aobut the Zen Stone Plus and the Zen V plus. Can anybody give me any adivice on deciding between the two? Thanks!

    There's a site where a compilation of expert reviews for Creative ZEN V Plus 2GB MP3 Player can be found. You will see that it received quite a good ratings from some of the experts who tested it. And lastly, the reviews are conveniently located because you can accessed them from one place.

  • Thoughts on new mp3 player "Zen&qu

    I love the whole design/interface and I'm sure will continue to provide great video playback, music quality with customizable EQs, and good battery life. MY only issue is the space. I will definitely miss out on the 30gig hd space of the creative zen vision m's (I wanted to buy it, but it's not being sold anywhere). I think it was a mistake to discontinue it because people are still willing to buy. I don't mind the bulkiness of it compared to the ipod video because it excels at everything else.
    I guess flash dri'ves are easier to work with for creative (Cnet says that Creative isn't making anymore hard dri've players).
    So far the only creative mp3 player i've owned is the creative zen micro (5 gigs) so I was hoping for more space than 8 gigs (since i'll be watching some videos too).

    No more hard-disk based players from Creative?
    Well, with all the problems their hard disk players are facing, I don't blame them for making that decision. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones with a wonderful 30GB ZVM. 9 Months and still ticking beautifully, although I do admit that syncing is a pain in the ass sometimes as Window$ Media Player would randomly do stupid things like upload the same song twice into the player when I change album or artist name (I make stupid typos like that sometimes, or it would be because the FreeDB/CDDB/Windows Media Online entry has typos), and think that a file has already been uploaded previously even though it's already been deleted. Then again, that would be M$/WMP's fault.
    Anyway, given how the price of flash memory has dropped, I think we would once more be seeing 30GB devices from Creative in the market in the near future. And they would not be as sensiti've to shocks, bumps and drops that plague any hard disk based players.
    Psst, Creative, now that the product's abandon ware, care to tell us how to upgrade our 30GB ZVMs to 60GB? or enable USB host? Message Edited by RAMChYLD on 09-03-20072:9 AM

  • Zen Stone Plus 2GB -- Unresponsive

    I have had my Stone for a couple months now, and just recently it has been giving me problems. On Friday I was using it in the car and turned it off while stopping in a store. When I returned and tried to play it, the Creative symbol came on, followed by the Zen Plus screen and then went blank. I then thought that it just needed a charge and brought it home. After leaving it in my computer for a day, I took it out and found it was still doing the same thing. I tried charging it again but that didnt work either. When it was plugged into my computer it showed a full 3 bars, followed by a lightning bolt. The next time I tried, I found that not only has it become unresponsi've (no lights, or screens), the computer is not recognizing it.
    I hope this does not mean the end for my MP3, because I have enjoyed it up to this point. Thanks.

    Try attaching the player to the computer. While it is connected use a paperclick (or straightened staple) to click the reset switch.
    Hope this hel

    I have new ZEN Stone Plus 2GB Black
    but i have a question - about charging - I have Mac OsX and when i connect it to computer the charging icon appears on the display, but I has been charging for few hours now and still there is steady blue light - not blinking - can anyone tell me how long does it take to fully charge the battery when I connect it for the first time and secondly - is there any software for Mac OsX 0.4.0?
    thanks a lot!

    funny(!!) I have the same model (Zen Stone Plus) and the exact error occurs to me to --a power sign and NO CHARGE!!
    I thought I heard that with Zen -starting it (re-boot) with the Zen plugged-in already will let it work? I tried that and , that didn't help.. -Does any Forum user have any idea what to try?
