Question FM autoscan feature not operating

Has anyone else been unable to autoscan for FM stations with their ZVM?
I purchased my unit yesterday. Ironically, the first thing I tried after opening
the box was checking out its FM reception . When I select for autoscanning
to supposedly delete all "previous presets", no scanning takes place. I do
live in a fringe area, 8 miles from Middletown, NY, but can still easily tune in
about a dozen stations with any ordinary table radio. Yes, I had the headphones inserted (I understand that the ZVM uses the earphone wires as
antenna). I also tried going outside, and walking around. Not a single station can be received. I'm surprised that Creative didn't design the ZVM to
allow for user known frequencies to be individually keyed in (in the same way
it allows users to type in playlist names etc. via an onscreen "keyboard"). I'm
doubly surprised that no one else seems to be bothered by this omission. Should I return the unit for an exchange? I love the rest of
the features; the video quality is superb. Having fooled around with the unit
after reading the manual...I would have to say I do not find the menu layout
to be completely self apparent, and I am reasonably good at such things.
