Help Is playing OGG files on a Zen possible?


Im new. Dont shout at me. (Please).

I run Ubuntu 8.10, and it rips your music files in the OGG Vorbis format. Now, Im not lazy or anything, but converting my 100 and something music tracks and then loading them onto my Zen would take a while, no kidding. Is there a way I can get OGG files to play on my Zen? Or can any of you guys reccomend a batch file converter which will work on Ubtu 8.10?

No, for Vorbis playback you'd need another player, like a Cowon, Samsung, or new Sansa.

Converting Vorbis to MP3 will give you quite some noticeable drop in quality, so it would be better you re-rip your CDs from scratch.

Zen = no OGG playback.

I second this. For playback on the Zen, this would be your best bet.
