Default Zen V true UMS?

Hi,

Does anyone know if this player's onboard file-management is true UMS? Or is it quasi-UMS like Sandisk?

True UMS devices support access to the device/player as an external disk drive (universal mass storage). These devices will work with Windows XP, 2000, 98 with driver, Macs, and Linux PCs.

A pure UMS player will support audio file transfer via the disk drive and either provide a self-databasing feature or navigation by folder. The Rio Carbon with recent firmware provides both tag and folder navigation. The Ipods provide UMS support but not for music transfers. The Sansa E2xx players support both MTP (MS's protocol) and UMS music transfers (self-databasing). The Sansa E130 supports self-databasing. Iaudios support UMS music transfers and folder navigation.

Some new players like the CLIX only support MTP (Windows XP) music transfers.

Okay, so it's not true UMS, but it does support some sort of drop and drag feature for transferring music files, right? How does this work?

The reason I'm interested is I currently have a Sansa e260 that I'm considering getting rid of (can't tolerate the poor audio quality using IEM). The thing I like most about the Sansa is that I can drag and drop my folders in UMS mode. Never have to mess with WMP. If I ditch the Sansa, the Zen V Plus looks like an attractive alternative. But I'd still prefer the no fuss, no muss approach to uploading content.

Does the Zen V Plus read file/folders or ID3 tags?

The Zen V & V Plus are both strictly MTP and it uses ID3 tags.

Aye - and if it's anything like the Vision:M, it supports drag-and-drop (for the most part) through the Windows Explorer.

Thank you, ZenChick. That's what I was trying to figure out. The Creative web site says you can drag and drop, but I didn't know if you did that through Windows Explorer or Zen software.

Within either Media Explorer or Windows Explorer, you can drag and drop directories. Browsing is done through the directory structure. ID3 isn't used in this case.

Sorry, I'm confused. If you can drag and drop directories, does that mean you can use the Zen V with Windows 2000?
