Zen nano mp3 player always starts at same song 1gig

You can put it on shuffle mode, and then it will play a new song everytime. Also, check if somehow you got some songs into a playlist or folder. If that is the case it may start from the same song everytime.

Hi!i cannot put a songs to my zen v plus...what will i do?

What you should do is to go to all tracks and play one so that it is in the 'now playing' section. Then, hold the return buttontil the menu appears. go on remove (this only removes from the playlist, not delete the file! trust me). then remove all. next, go back to the all tracks and hole return on the track you want to add to the playlist. Go down to 'add to selected'and it is in. (it will automatically select the next song so dont keep pressing should see the selection in the background move down). Do this for all the tracks u want. Go to now playing and hold return, then 'save playlist as', and save as the file. Then it can be accessed through the playlists menu. Hope this helps poeple!

Can't create playlists on my zen x fi

I tried some suggestions posted here, and after some testing, I can now give you step-by-step instructions to create a playlist on your Creative Zen.

First, you need to think of the NOW PLAYING list as the "selected songs to be added to a playlist".

So, to start clean, let's empty out the NOW PLAYING list as follows:
1) from the MUSIC menu, select NOW PLAYING
2) when a song is shown on-screen, click the context menu
3) select REMOVE ...
4) select REMOVE ALL
Now, the NOW PLAYING list is empty.

Now, you need to select (mark) the songs you want to add to your new playlist:
1) go to an individual song
2) click the context menu, and select ADD TO SELECTED
3) go to another desired song, and do step 2) again
4) repeat until done

Now, to create a NEW playlist, go to the MUSIC menu, then:
1) select NOW PLAYING
2) it will show you the first song that you selected
3) press the Right button, to scroll through all of the other songs you selected
4) when any song is shown on-screen, click the context menu
5) select SAVE AS PLAYLIST (this refers to ALL songs in your NOW PLAYING list)
6) type the name for your new playlist, and click checkmark
ALL of the songs in the NOW PLAYING list are now saved as your New playlist.

From the MUSIC menu, select PLAYLISTS. You will see the name of the playlist that you just created. When you select that playlist, you will see the list of songs you had selected.

Please note that these songs are still in your NOW PLAYING list also. To create a another New playlist, you will first need to empty out the NOW PLAYING list as you did above.

I hope that helps.

Downloading playlist from non-internet connected computer

Yes, but you also need to load the ZEN software onto her computer so that you can add music to the player. You can load the playlist several ways, using Yahoo music, Windows Media Player, or using the Zen Media Explorer.

Take a CD, rip it with windows media player or any other software that can rip CD's. Then sync them with your mp3 player with your media player.

Music has disappeared.

One of the pesky features of windows Media Player is that if you delete the song/playlist from the computer's harddrive, and then resync your device to that same computer, then oftentimes the song/playlist disappears. Reacquire the song/playlist, and then try resyncing to the goGear again.

Trouble Filing Songs into Playlists

ok, sounds like a problem I had when I was working out the software! The easiest way to create a playlist with the Zen, is doing it over your PC, if you don't have the software it is available for FREE download at the official creative Zen site, just choose your model and region then hit download- simple! (You won't need Zencast with sleek photo model) ok! install your software blah blah blah, once it's gone through that process, restart your pc and then plug in your zen. the software should instantly recognise that your player is connected, so now, you can open up the software via desktop shortcut or start menu. From here, you've got a whole ton of options, whether to add to your library, create playlists etc etc. Choose create playlist and the process is easy. Left side of the screen is navigation of your Library, right side is navigation of current playlists. Create a new list, then name it. From the top left of the screen, select a folder on your library to open, the lower left displays what's in the folder you are viewing. move tracks over accordingly, holding down ctrl while you click is a fast and easy way to select more than one track at a time. hit add in the center of the screen to move stuff over to your new list. when you're done, save it. when you exit the software and unplug your zen, it should take a minute to update itself, sometimes you may need to restart Zen also to get the playlists updated. I hope this helps!
