Nothing wrong with that.

It looks as though. The Zen manual is 98 pages. It covers what you are looking for. The manual is at the bottom of the Zen FAQ as an attachment to download/unzip.

You got it.

I call you a person that has a brain and likes to use it.

Try doing a Playlist and setting it to play back as Random mode.

I believe the Zen will first organize by Track listings under Album view when you have the Track part of the tag filled in. When there is no tag info for the Track entry, the Zen will organize the tracks in alphabetical order. Under All Tracks, it will list them in alphabetical order regardless of Track info.

Just go to artists, highlight the artist you want, and press play.

It is actually really easy. One of the easiest actually. See Tagging FAQ here.
