Default Slow Shutdown

My player often needs several minutes to shut down. Shutdown message is being displayed, and nothing happens. Then, 2-3-4 min later, it's finally over.
Any ideas?....
Thanks,
Vygi

Boot into Recovery Mode (see instructions in the FAQ subforum) and run Disk Cleanup. Be aware that this will reset your user settings back to factory default, so you will lose your FM presets and EQ settings among other things, and you will have to rename your player again.

Default Vision:M shutdown problem

Same problem here. My Creative Vision:M 30GB takes 15 minutes to shut down. I've tried reformatting, running cleanup, deleting and reinstalling the firmware, and using Creative's MP3 recovery tool. None of these made a difference. It also won't retain the clock setting -- reverts to Feb 26, 2007 at 2:00 a.m. after each reboot.

Hello aredub. Welcome. Seems as though you have tried just about everything you could except maybe trying a new hard drive. It sounds like the beginnings of a failing drive or one with a large amount of bad sectors. Although the not keeping the time may indicate a mainboard issue or problem with the real-time-clock.

Hi,
Is there a way to check for bad sectors, or dfragment the drive?

Welcome lps141. Not while in the ZVM and formatted to its own (CFS) filesystem. It is suspected that the CFS filesystem is similar to the Linux Ext2 filesystem. Due to Ext2's block data structure, the filesystem doesn't really need defragmenting.
