Default From Zen Vision:M to Now. What happened to drag/drop/rock, without worry?

I bought my wife the Zen, and she bought me the Zen X-Fi 2, both recently. Back in 2007, i bought ( and still have and won't get rid of) the Vision:M, becasue i did not want to bow down to Apple and buy the over rated Ipod ( not a horrible piece of tech, but lacking when compared to Creative products), and not be frustrated with the software that is nightmarishly known as Itunes.

I loved the Vision:M. Every video i ever loaded onto it, worked without worry. Right click/send, and it played without ever asking about converting to work on my player, running XP Pro.

The Zen, and X-Fi 2 need stinking conversion, on files that it is supposed to run right out of the box. What happened? Why was it so easy on the Vision:M, but now you have to cross your fingers, say a prayer, that the video will just copy and play, without worrying about the error messages popping up saying that a WMV, or AVI file does not match my players type(wifes Zen under XP OR Windows 7), or having to convert a file that is already supposedly supported by the player (my X-Fi 2) from AVI to "Magic AVI file" . Thank God Windows 7 knows what it is doing, but i didn't think it was rocket science to just right click/send a file that is supposed to be supported already by the vendor, right out of the box.

Anyone know why?
