Default Transferring Music from Computer

I know I am doing something wrong or the most difficult way, but there has to be an easier way. I rip cd's to my Music folder on my laptop, then move them to the Zen V. When I copy over, I end up having to go back into Creative Organizer and type out the song title, artist, and album. Is there something out there that does that automatically? Am I doing something wrong?

Have you tried using WMP11?

What program are you using to rip your CDs?

Yeah, WMP is good for this. I like to use EAC. MP3Tag is a great program to use for going back and editing the ones that you have already ripped, but have no tag info. Good luck!

I personally don't use WMP for CD-ripping (simply because I prefer a ripper that uses LAME in the encoding process), but it's still a decent ripping utility. If you have an internet connection, it should automatically look up the CD information, automatically tag your new files with the information - including album art, and damn near automatically syncs it to your player for you!

WMP10 is not the easiest thing to work with, and I don't believe it rips to MP3 at all. If you don't have WMP11, get it. And get rid of the Creative software. You don't need it, and it just simply gets in your way.

Which ripping software do you recommend? So to move files from you computer to the Zen, do you use Windows Explorer?

Give EAC a shot. I use Windows Explorer most of the time.
