What operating system are you using?

If you are using Windows Vista, or if you are using Windows XP SP2 or higher with Windows Media Player 11 installed, then you do not need the installation disk.

If you still feel you need the installation disk, then please check here for the links.

It has the MTP drivers necessary if your OS does not already support MTP (unfortunately, even if your OS does support it, the disk will try to install it anyways. This has caused no end of problems for XP users who have WMP11 installed already). It also has Creative MediaSource - a media library management application and sync manager, and Creative Media Explorer - an application that allows your device to show up in "My Computer", and there is a small suite of tools that manage video transcodes and ID3 tag editing.

IMHO, the tools provided by Creative are sub-par and problematic. WMP11 pretty much makes the entire disk irrelevant; and even if you don't have WMP11 installed, there are better software suites out there, such as MediaMonkey.

Please clarify if the installation CD posted here is for the 30G or 60G version because they are different.
