Question about Creative Labs Zen Touch MP3 Player

1 Answer

Fast Forward How do I fast forward my zen when listening to an audio book? I was listening to a book last night and fell asleep halfway through a chapter and I didn't set a bookmark? So now I want to fast forward to the middle of the chapter without having to listen to the whole beginning again. Is that possible?

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...


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.

How can i fast forward on an audio book


there's no function for this on mp3 players.if you know you're going to want to do this frequently when you're reading the book it would be better to download it in chapters and then you could at least jump from one chapter to another without listening to the whole thing each time.You could record chapters or the whole thing onto Audacity ( A free sound recording program) and break it up into smaller sections.This is a lot of messing about and you'd probably be better off trying to find the book as an ebook and just search out the relevant bit that you'd missed and read it instead. I think it would be a great step forward if mp3 players were able to do this.The only equipment I know of that can do this(other than a media player on a pc) is on some digital radios where you can pause and do a rewind to the bit you want but this is usually only over a short period (5 mins for example on the Roberts digital radio.

Fast forwarding for listening to books


I use a Creative Zen V Plus, but have a similar problem.

First, an explanation: the issue is probably with the timecode in the audio track. This can happen when the audio file is created on a computer. The audiobook was likely "ripped" to a file from the original audiobook CD, and your player may not like the format the file is in. The best solution in this case is to recreate the audio files yourself. First remove all of the files from your Sansa for that particular book. Then use CD-burning software on your computer to create an audio CD (not a data CD!) from the files you got from the library. Finally, use the software that came with your Sansa to transfer the audio CD back to your Sansa. This way you know you are getting a correct format on your player.

If you have an additional issue (like me) where the tracks are too long and go back to the beginning every time you turn your player off, you may have to use an audio editor such as Audacity to chop the long tracks up into smaller tracks, but this is quite time consuming. It is best to acquire audiobooks in smaller tracks in the first place. This is the problem I have been faced with while using Audible.com to listen to audiobooks.

Playback of audio files does not resume where I left off when powering back on


I have an e260. I use it for audiobooks a lot. I just press pause (centre top of the dial), and the track will resume from there next time (unless I go back to the main menu for radio of course.)

Can't Fast Forward Too Far


No there is not - this is a common problem across many Mp3 players. One day they'll find a better way to handle this situation.

Sansa m200 won't fast forward


Unfortunately, this device does not support bookmarking. You are going to always have this problem. You may want edit the song into individual chapters. You can download a third party application to auto create them every few minutes or so. Best of Luck.
