Default Zen Questions part 2

hey i have a couple more questions...basically a month till i get my zen on
1)the calendar function is great for me (university tests, appointments etc) but i dont have outlook, i think creatives software does this, but need confirmation

2)i dont really want to use creative software because of the general consensus that it sucks worse that apple. but if i do use it for the calendar/todo/contact list, will it screw with my MM stuff, videos or nething like that?

3)if i am not at all bothered by video conversion, can i put any video onto it ( by putting movies on an SD card through my laptop)
thanks alot for any info you guys can give me (especially Bobby RS, youre a great help!)

1. You need Outlook. The Creative software handles the syncing, not the storage of the contacts, calander, etc. data.

2. Yes it could. It's best to sync with one sync manager.

3. All videos needs to be within the playback specs of the Zen regardless if the videos are stored on the Zen or an SD card.

No. Again, it syncs with outlook data. The Creative software only does the syncing of the outlook data, not store it.

Not that I know of yet. You need to use Creative's sync manager.

Videos needs to be within the playback specs of the Zen's capability regardless of what video conversion software program used to do the conversions.
