Default I got a new Zen and I would like to know it's secrets.


My brand new 16gig Creative Zen is being delivered today.

I was wondering if there are any tips or tweaks I should do to it straight out of the box? (Other than the instructions indicate.) Any firmware updates, program updates, utility program downloads or driver updates I should do before I even plug it in?

I am running Windows XP with service pack 3. All my windows updates are current.

Any little secrets I should consider before I start loading it up with songs and vids?

Yes, charge it for a few hours first, check the manual it will tell you how many hours.

Some people have had problems by not charging it. (not major)

Congrats on the new Zen Violetspike. You should check out the Zen FAQ. Enjoy!
