Default ZVM freezing after repeated track skipping

Hi guys. New to this forum. I have a small issue which is winding me up.

Im a bit of a lazy guy and I have my ZVM on Random Play All all the time.

So sometimes I skip quite a few tracks inorder to get to a track that I really want to listen to. However sometimes the player just doesnt access the next( or last) track but the display keeps scrolling the last trcks info and the position bar shows >| if im shuffling forward or |< if shuffling backwards

I have to reset the player to get control back.

Oh yeah and another thing, while im on Random Pay All, why when I shuffle backwards does the player not play the last played track? instead it plays a different random track.

Other mp3 players when in shuffle mode and you go back a track plays the last played track so why doesnt the ZVM?

No, it does not happen on the same track OR after a certain number of skips. On one occasion it has actually happened after one or two skips. Other times it may take 20 to 30 skips.
I have the latest firmware, and, yes, I have reapplied the firmware. The freezing after repeated skipping was happening even before the firmware update.
The hard drive has no errors.
I have wiped and reformatted the hard disc a few times.
I have reset the player back to factory defaults.

still no joj.

Hmm, I don't use mine like you use yours, but one question I have is how quickly are your skipping songs? Ie; are you giving the zen time to catch up? I've never had this happen to me on either of my zens.

Thanks for the reply. Most times I skip after the first few beats.

When the freeze happens, ive leftit switched on to see if the player "catches up" . Ive even left it on overnight but it doesnt unfreeze. Ive had and still have other mp3 players that I use in the same way but none of them freeze.

Also as I have said, on a couple of occasions it has happened after ony a few skips.

I have this problem sometimes, about once a month or less depending on usage, but I keep mine on Repeat All. Tends to happen when I get somewhat over-zealous with skipping and also freezes irrespective of how many tracks I've skipped but hits mostly with several clicks. Best I can attribute it to is slight overheating and/or a not quite totally buttoned-up firmware, albeit my guesses are specious at best. Worth noting that I had this problem with my previous logicboard as well.

The inability to skip back on shuffle is just a matter of Creative not adding the code to implement the feature.
