I'm not with this brand specifically, but it does sound a lot like the iPod so I will try to help...
Even though the battery is most likely fully charged, it will continue to show the battery symbol to show that it is charging/charged. Depending on the brand, there will be a different symbol between a charging battery and a charged battery.
As for your music, make sure you have the most current driver(s) installed on your computer.

Your battery is fu.k.d up. This thing ships with half a charge and your supposed to fully charge it before first using it. Even though every genius out there will say that these batteries don't retain memory charge. They are wrong. You have set your battery memory to say full when it is only 1/4 fully charged. Take the thing back to the store and exchange it for a new one if your within your 30 day window. Take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out for a shiny new one if your within your 1 year window. You don't need a receipt at the Apple store, cause they can just look on the back of the ipod and type in the serial #. That tells them if the ipod was sold within the year or not. Apple won't exchange the thing out if you dropped it hard or exposed the thing to liquids.
I just figured out the problem I had just like yours. I have three different sony MP3's and thought all the usb cables were the same. Well after changing out the usb cable my 438f started charging. I was using the cable from my s615f and the same is true if I use the 438 cable on the 615-full battery instantly. Also sony does not replace these batteries. If in warranty from purchase date, they will exchange with "like product" for $29, or repair yours for $77. Both prices include return shipping. http//eservice.sony.com
167labrie does your zen power up while it is plugged into the ac adapter? If this is the case it is a bad battery. I had this problem where the unit wouldn't take or hold a charge from the ac adapter or the usb cable and they ended up replacing the unit.
