Interesting. I am in the process of getting an RMA for my ZEN V+ 8GB. It was working reasonably well until Monday evening. I'd used it for several hours in the late afternoon into late evening and had plugged it in to charge overnight. Tuesday morning the device would not turn on and was not recognized by my computer an any USB port; nor was it acknowledge on a neighbors computer. Normal reset procedure yielded no change and none of the trouble shooting advice on the Creative website worked either.
My device had not gone to high altitude nor had it experienced any shocks, heat extremes or spills. It seemed to be operating fine when I plugged it in to recharge. SIGH.
