Default I hate Mp3 players!!!!!

My mp3 player was in my pocket and when I took it out of my pocket later this is what I found.


The screen cracked off in the corner causing a 1/4 of the screen to be white and a whole bunch of white lines on the screen. I just got it for my birthday on march 8 about 6 months ago so its still in the 1 year warranty right? Wrong, I emailed creative and they said its out of warranty because of physical damage. I found that strange because I never dropped it once and Its basically brand new. I looked and found like 100's of forums and other sites of people complaining how their creative zen vision M screens cracking for no apparent reason.

The thing that is really pissing me off even more because I have another creative mp3 player that the harddrive failed after a year and they say that is also because of physical damage. It seems that every problem that can go wrong they can blame on physical damage even though it is a common problem with a large portion of their products.

Then funny thing about my mp3 player with the failed harddrive (zen microphoto) is I found on another forum that you can fix it by banging it on a desk of hard object. I did it and it worked. Its funny how actual physical damage can fix a product.

I have a Creative Zen Vision M and haven't had a single problem with it. I have dropped it once or twice but I have a hard plastic case to protect it. Before I got this one I had a Creative Muvo TX and never had a problem with that either. Thats why I stuck with Creative. Sorry yours broke, that really sucks. Did they say the screen can be replaced?
