Angry ZVM doesn't charge and isn't being recognized by PC(s)


I've read a lot of topics which include similar problem as I have but no1 has not got really the same problem.

My problems started few weeks ago. I had not used my ZVM for about week and I decided to charge it. When I plugged it with USB cable nothing happened. Even the blue indicator didn't blink. So I thought USB cable is done and I went to a mall and bought myself a new one. Connected again and still nothing. It doesn't charge at all and as I said before the blue indicator doesn't blink either.

Both of my USB ports are working and I tried to plug my zen to another computer but nothing happened then too.

Has any1 had same problem ? What might have caused it and any ideas how to fix it ?

Thanks in advance,

A totally depleted battery will cause this among other things. If you have a wall charger for it that would be best for charging it.The Creative dongle can be used with the PSP wall charger to get the battery back to life if that's the problem or alot of patience & plugging it back into the computer usb for at least 24hrs.

If you are using a usb port placed on the front of your pc I recommend that you switch to a port located on the back. Sometimes the usb ports on the front of the pc might not provide enough power for the ZVM (and other usb stuff, cameras etc.)
I agree with coachop94: a wall charger is the best way to charge your ZVM. If you have a wall charger: use that one instead of charging via usb.
My mp3 player is my baby...I love my blue ZVM
