Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

1 Answer

On my Zen V Plus, I have an audio book that is sectioned into 8 different parts, each 1 hour in length. When playing one of the sections, it is registered as being 5 minutes 45 seconds in length, but still plays after 5 minutes to the full 1 hour length. The problem with this is that I can't navigate to the time I left off. The file opens in WMP as 1 hour in length, but not on the Creative Zen Explorer program. Any help is greatly appreciated!

The unit only displays time allotments up to 59 minutes 59 seconds and then turns over. In other words, a file that's 1 hour and 6 minutes will show up as you have seen, 00:06:00 instead of 01:06:00.

The time on the bottom left is time played while the time on the bottom right is time remaining. Your unit will work fine once you get the hang of knowing how to look at the timers.

Sounds like you're listening to Podcast's.

Note 1: Now Playing - If you shut the unit down while it's playing your selection (it can be paused too), when you power back up, you can simply pick up where you left off by choosing "Now Playing" or just wait for the unit to automatically start the last file where it left off. Either way, it will start where you left off. This only works for the last mp3 you were listening to.

Note 2: Different File Time Reference - If you want to listen to another file other than the last one you listened to and you want to skip, say the intro and go directly to a specific area in the file, you will have had to remember a time reference from either time played or time remaining to get back there.

Note 3: Fast Forward/Rewind - As there's no bookmark feature on this player, the only thing you can do is to make a note of the time where you last left off of the mp3 and hold the stick/button to the right and fast forward to the general location. As you're scrolling to the general area, the longer you hold the stick/button, the fast forward progress will pick up speed to get you there quicker. Same holds true when going backwards.

Hope this helps.

    Unfortunately you seem to not be familiar with the Zen V Plus and this problem. I've had one for several years and bought it to listen to books because it does have 10 bookmarks. I am having a problem with files that are longer than an hour seemingly truncating to 60 minutes and the device not remembering where I left off and not remembering in Bookmark mode to go back to the correct spot. It used to do both these functions but no more. I have downloaed the latest firmware but it still doesn't work correctly Very frustrating.

Creative Zen V Plus Bookmarks


A little known feature on this player is the ability to use bookmarks, up to 10 of them. Many of you listen to podcasts or audio books which may be fairly lengthy and if you have to stop in the middle of what ever you're listening to, normally when you go back to your player you would have to start all over again.<br /><br />A note about <span style="font-style: italic;">"resuming playback":</span> If you shutdown during playback of a podcast or audio book (not pausing or stopping playback first) your Zen will automatically resume playback when you start it back up.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Zen V Plus Bookmarking</span><br /><br />You can insert bookmarks during playback. A bookmark helps you mark a point within a track, so you can return to it at a later time.<br /><br />You can use up to 10 bookmarks at any one time.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">To insert a bookmark:</span><br /> <ol> <li>In the Now Playing screen, press the Options button and select Set Bookmark .</li> <li>For ZEN V Plus, you will need to press and <span style="text-decoration: underline;">hold</span> the Options button.

If all 10 bookmark numbers have been assigned, you can replace an existing bookmark with the new one or you can delete a previous bookmark.</li></ol><span style="font-weight: bold;">To delete a bookmark:</span><br /><br /> <ol> <li>Press and hold the Menu/Back button. The main menu appears.</li> <li>Select Music Library and then Bookmarks .</li> <li>Go to the bookmark that you want to delete.</li> <li>Press the Options button.

ZEN Xtra also supports bookmarks though you cannot place two or more bookmarks for one song or audio book<br /><br />

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 it...you 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!

Zen V Plus locked up, will not shut off


After 3 1/2 hours, the battery went dead. I waited a couple of minutes, then plugged it into my computer to see if the battery would charge. It started charging. A few hours later I went back to check on it, and it showed a full battery. I disconnected it from my computer, and turned it on. It came on, but the screen just said "Low Battery". I then plugged it back into my computer, and the screen said "Rebuilding Library". I left it for about a 1/2 hour, and it was done. I unplugged it from my computer, turned it on, and it works now!! Hope this helps out everyone else who has the same problem.
