Default Zen X-Fi 8GB won't turn on without removing SD card

This was really really annoying before i figured out it was an issue with the SD card.

I am using the SanDisk 8GB MicroSDHC which shows up on creatives compatible SD card list.

symptoms - after having the Zen X-Fi sit around for a bit, it just wouldn't turn on - until i plug it back into a PC USB port, which it boots immediately after plugging it in. After i remove it from the PC, it seems like it turns on and off fine, but then after it sits for a while, it behaves the exact same way.

Using the RESET only worked some of the time, to get it to turn on. but with the SD card removed - it turns on everytime now.

Wish i would have figured it out before i formatted the thing a few times, and updated the new firmware. I kind of like the included Images - which i didn't backup.

(if anyone has a backup of the included wallpapers, or other files - let me know! THANKS!)

p.s. aside from the crappy SD card integration, lack of video games, having to resize videos, a terrible included media manager, and this not turning on issue - its a pretty nice player?

It looks really nice anyway, love the build quality, gui is sharp, and sound and video quality is excellent, as are the included headphones. I definitely do like the player - but they could have ironed out the quirks.

Thanks for looking!
