Charm production has been measured with the ZEUS detector in deep inelastic ep scattering at HERA. The measurement is based on the full reconstruction of the decay chain D*->D0pis, D0->Kpi and exploits the full HERA II statistics. Differential cross sections have been measured. The kinematic range is 1.5 GeV < pT(D*) < 10GeV, |eta(D*)| < 1.5, 5 < Q2 < 1000GeV2 and 0.02 < y < 0.7. The observed cross sections is extrapolated to the full pt(D*) and eta(D*) range in order to determine the open-charm contribution, F2cc(x,Q2) to the proton structure function, F2.
