Default Volume Restrictions

I set a password for Volume Restriction on my Creative Zen and forgot it.
Can anyone help me reset the password?
I tried "0000" but that didn't work, and I tried upgrading the firmware and that didn't work. Please Help

I would assume you have to reflash the firmware. That's how it's done with the stone anyway.

Hello Joe's Gal. Welcome to ABI! Boot into Recovery Mode and select Cleanup from the menu. This should reset any user defined settings, including the password.

To boot the Zen into Recovery Mode:

1. With the Zen off, press and hold the "play/pause" button.
2. Continue to hold until you perform Steps 3 and 4. If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.
3. Gently push the end of a thin object (like a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. You should be able to feel the release click of the button.
4. Slide the On/Off/Lock switch towards the power button and hold until the boot screen appears on the display.

The Recovery Mode screen appears, and select Cleanup from the menu.

nah... just go to the recovery menu and do a 'clean up'. that wipes out all the passwords and custom settings.

I haven't had to go into the recovery menu on my Zen yet, but I think that's what it is called.

LOL.... Bobby you are just too quick
