Battery use & file format

I've seen conflicting accounts about which audio file format requires the most energy to play or uses up battery faster. I play mostly AUDIBLE files, some WMA's and some MP3's. Battery life for my...

I assumed that by the time it needs a new battery that technology may have advanced sufficiently to warrant getting a newer unit. Since mine is still relatively new I haven't looked for a...

My first 8 GB V+ died in just under 2 months but Creative replaced it with a new or reconditioned unit that has worked fine. All things considered I've been mostly pleased with the device. I use it...

I've been satisfied with 160-192 kbs in both mp3 and WMA format. I use cheap ear buds or headphones and I haven't been able to discern a significant difference between 160 kbs and higher bit rates. ...

I am not aware of such a setting. When I use mine in our cars I just let it play and focus on driving while I listen. I'd see turning on the screen for each song as a distraction and unnecessary...

Interesting. I am in the process of getting an RMA for my ZEN V+ 8GB. It was working reasonably well until Monday evening. I'd used it for several hours in the late afternoon into late evening and...

My screen was set at 50 or 60% brightness.

I'm getting perhaps 6-8 hours per charge, not even close to the UPTO 15 hours advertised. I have a mixture of mp3, WMA and Audible files. I understand WMA encoded music may use the battery faster...

ZENcast organizer seems adequate to me. The interface may not be terribly intuitive but I didn't find it too difficult to figure out. I've been able to subscribe to several podcasts that I didn't...
