Angry Zen v plus crashed!!!:(

alright so i was trying to transfer a movie on my zen v plus with windows media player and it said there was an error so i stopped the sync and the media player froze while it was closing. so i tried control alt delete w/e to close it still nothing. so i was in a hurry so i just unplugged my zen before i left. when i got to school nothing would work, not even the reset. i tried connecting it to my comp when i got home but still.. nothing... does anyone know what the hell happened?

The zv+ was still writing files, and you unplugged it. The file it was writing is corrupt.

My guess is that you will need to format the player, but do try hitting hard reset first
