Question about Creative Labs Zen Touch MP3 Player

Creative zen sleek playlists

Hi, I bought this player second hand recently and I am trying (unsuccessfully) to work out how to create a playlist on it, consisting of tracks from various artists and albums. Is this possible without having to connect it to the computer? I can't seem to find the answer anywhere! I love the player, and this would just make it so much better if I could work out how to do this! Thanks.

Yes, go through the tracks that you want, and press the menu button, then select the add to selected option. Once you are finished with this, go to the now playing list, and select make playlist. It is alot easier if you connect it to your computer with the software though.

Hi,
You can use iTunes or iMesh instead for creating a playlist and moving files, but first you will need to copy all the audio files you have from your MP3 player to your computer then use either one of the 2 software I mentioned to sync your audio onto your MP3 PLayer.
Also make sure that the Firmware of your Zen is up to date.
I hope this helps.

Need Creative Zen user manual. No longer on the website. I really just need to know how to create playlists if you can help me with that.


  • Creating playlists for Creative Zen MP3 player
  1. Step 1 Turn your Creative Zen MP3 Player on and add music to its hard drive if you haven't already. Without music on your player, you won’t be able to select tracks for a playlist.
  2. Step 2 Select "Music Library" from the Main Menu. The Main Menu should appear as the first menu when you turn your device on.
  3. Step 3 Select "Now Playing" from the options available, then press the Options button.
  4. Step 4 Select "Save as Playlist" from the list of options. This will save the tracks you have listed currently as a playlist that can be reloaded later.
  5. Step 5 To play a playlist back, go to the Main Menu, select the playlist and click

Changing file names and creating playlists


Changing the filename won't change to artist, title, album ext... The easiest way I know of to change this is with MediaMonkey, a free media player. Click the link and install and open Mediamonkey. Find your MP3 player on the left side to browse the music. Highlight the music that you want to change the artist for in your MP3 player, right click>Properties.
You can also create playlists with MediaMonkey.

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.

Enjoy!

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!
