Default Moving with a file or folder

1)How can I move with a file or folder when its already in my player?
I tried to do it many ways, but it never lets me...

2)For what reason is in the player folder ZenCast ?

3)Has anyone tried to press the "Purchase" button as one of many options while playing a song?


Before starting video..option button->Settings... takes you right to the main menu, where you can easily change brightness of your player....or you can do it during the movie(you have to go back "left bottom" of course...but it ll remeber your last position). It think its pretty cool...

One very good info for those, who is using Album Art. When you click on certain Artist and go to see Albums, you click with the "option button" on one of it and press the option "Switch View." Next time there wont be the name of a album BUT THE PICTURE YOU SAVED THERE. Its awesome hehe, but it takes a few seconds to load it...Try out

Although the ZVM will store and preserve your directory structure, the ZVM does not make use of it internally. In order to move files from one folder to another, you have to manually copy the file to your PC, delete it from the player, then copy it back onto your player in whatever folder you wanted it in.

This is where Zencasts go. Zencasts are the Creative version of Podcasts, and the two have become interchangeable terms outside the iPod community. To get Pod/Zencasts into your ZVM, you need to download the ZenCast Organizer from Creative and install it on your computer. Then you point it to the URL of the podcast you want to download, and it'll do the rest.

The feature is meant for when you have a subscription with a music service where you download music for a flat monthly fee and can continue playing these songs only as long as you maintain the subscription. It allows you to purchase an individual song from that service so that it is yours to keep regardless of subscription status. Unless you are running such a subscription service, this feature is pretty useless.

There are confirmed reports that this will no longer be necessary under Windows Vista. Unlike Windows XP, Vista (finally!) properly implements Microsoft's own MTP protocol and allows you to move items on the ZVM without having to use the PC's hard drive as a go-between. Unfortunately Microsoft is unlikely to fix this functionality for XP, so those of us unwilling to throw money away (again) on upgrading our Operating Systems are stuck with the work-around ZenChick posted.

Unhappy Zencast

Hi,
dont know what podcast means. Can you pls explain it to me? What is it for if i ll download it?

I hate that manual i got with this player. There are hundrets of pages in languages, but there is nothing written about such a stuff...also Tv folder(i suppose it might do something with the AV cable, but i have no idea, so id appreciate if anybody could tell me...) Instead of this they write useless things which are very basic(everybody learns them after using the player for 10 minutes).

Podcasting, a portmanteau of Apple's "iPod" and "broadcasting", is a method of publishing files to the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed and receive new files automatically by subscription, usually at no cost. It first became popular in late 2004, used largely for audio files.

To add to this: If the above steps don't work, or if you launch a program that recognizes your player (such as MediaMonkey, MMJB, WMP, or Winamp) while it's plugged in, then you'll have to disconnect your player, shut down the programs, then plug your player back in.

If it still doesn't work, then you'll have to go into your Task Manager (CTRL ALT DEL) and, under the "Processes" tab, look for and shut down any instances of any media players still running, and CTDetect.exe if you find it.

Don't have any media programs running at the moment. Disabled Detector via MediaSource. Double checked services list and nothing that was Creative/ media player-related was running.

It seems that the DEvice is automatically docked once XP detects it as a portable drive...BLAH.

Any solutions?

Uninstalled WMP 11 as a windows component but Vision still automatically docks once Explorer detects it...

I've also uninstalled ALL Creative software from my computer...

No media players are running. Am using latest v. of firmware.

Any suggestions?

By any chance, do you have a Removable Drive partition set up on the thing?

That is why your player keeps docking when you plug it in -- The computer is mounting the MSC partition on your player.

If you don't want the player to auto-dock, you're going to have to lose the partition.

Default auto dock

I have a 1G partition, running under XP, and although I automatically dock when the creative SW is running, if it is not, I do not dock automatically.

It used to always autodock until I read about that setting (detector) here and switched it (thanks!).

FWIW, I do not have WMP v11. And I do not have the latest firmware. I have the pre-FM recording-deletion firmware...haven't upgraded to the new one that has it restored yet. Maybe this is a reason to wait

The player auto docks even before I set up the partition. Disabling Detector or even uninstalling all creative software did not help.
It autodocks whenever Windows detects it as a portable device.


EDIT: SOLUTION: Disabled drivers (via Computer Management) that Windows installed when I first connected the device. Charges and plays simultaneously now without the adapter. YAY.

whenever i connect mine to my computer it goes to usb "docked" mode and it just charges/syncs(if i choose to do so.)

i have a dc adaptor so if i want to charge and use it, i connect it to that.

OH nevermind. Disabling the driver via Computer Management doesn't allow charging.
My M hates me for some reason.

EDIT: NO wait. It does allow charging if you connect the M first and disable the driver afterwards.
It WONT charge if you connect the M, disable the driver, disconnect + reconnect the M.

I gots it., I tink. ^^
