Hard Disk problem- Zen Xtra starts in Rescue mode
I need some help. I am not a gadget person.
Last week I was recharging my MP3 ( Zen Xtra) over night.
When I woke up, I found the MP3 LCD light on and the MP3 felt quite hot.
So I removed the power supply and the battery from the MP3.
When I put back the battery to restart the thing, "Rescue mode" screen appeared.
1)Clean-up: No effect
2)Format All: Did not try as I have lots of songs inside the MP3
3)Reload OS: "Hard Disk problem" message appeared.
4)Reboot: Kept returning to the Rescue mode screen.
Using the USB, I tried to connect to the PC but no response. So
I wrote to Creative for help and they gave me the following link
which I could not understand.
I downloaded the MP3 Player Recovery Tool but it could not detect my player too.
After a few emails with their Helpdesk,
1) they asked me to confirm if I have Windows XP sp2 installed which my PC already have.
2) They got me to install ZenXtraP4SAudible_PCFW_LB_2_10_03.exe to update the flimware to solve the problem. This time, the MP3 did response but it prompted me to upgrade to flimware ver 2.10.03 but there was a warning message which said that upgrading it would mean that all my data would be erased.
Can someone advise me how to solve the problem without losing the songs/data inside my MP3?
Anyway to backup the songs? Please help. Thanks
Additional info: Current flimware ver:1.20.08
