Default Slow to Load Music to Zen via Creative Organizer

I have had my Zen Vision M:30 for a couple of years and recall that loading music was not TOO painful. However, I recently looked at it a bit more closely and decided that I did not like the Folder structure in which the music was stored -- the problem is not important to this discussion. I deleted (via Organizer) the entire set of music -- about 3600 tracks, and set about reloading in the normal structure (Music/Artist/Album).

I chose to reload using Creative MediaSource version 3.30.35 -- (Organizer) Sync manager. Evidently, I did it the correct way since the mp3 files are being loaded in the right directory structure and new tracks show up as loaded in the right place with the right content.However, after over 24 hours I am only about 70% complete and still working.

I note that it takes over a minute per track. I also note that one processor on my dual processor system is fully pegged (total CPU to CTSync.exe = 50% = 1 processor). I see some PC disk activity, then after a while, the Zen display indicates some syncing, then a long pause where no disk or Zen activity -- then repeat for the next track.

My PC is running XP Sp3 and has WMP 11 installed. It also has .Net Framework V1.0, V1.1, V2.0, V3.0, and V3.5 installed (which I mention because I saw some post indicating a possible problem with one of the earlier versions). I am running McAfee Security Center.

I have several questions:<ul>1. Is this normal??? I'm sure I would have remembered it if it had occurred when I first loaded the music from a much slower computer.
2. Should I be using another approach?
2a Would Drag/Drop work via WinExplorer? Would that be faster?
2b Would WMP 11 do this faster??
3. Is there an incompatiblity between music loaded via CTSync.exe and music loaded via WMP 11 (or Drag/Drop). If so, do I have to blow the music away and start over!?? Should I expect a more rapid load using another method?

Any info will be appreciated.
