My daughter uses my charger (with the usb adapter) to charge her 2GB Zen. I hope this helps.
Thanks! I ended up calling Creative, and the guy told me basically the same thing.....it won't hurt it, it doesn't have what it takes to charge the ZVM, so it would just sit there and keep trying, but cause no harm. I ordered the real deal.....the Gomadic brand one that my wife has, so it's all good.
