Could anybody help me rip some dvds onto my my creative zen x-fi. i know its lame but i dont know how to do it. i can do cds. is it the same?


★★★★★
It is not difficult to put DVDs onto your Creative Zen X-FI. However, commercial DVDs are generally encrypted. In order to copy these DVD to Creative ZEN, you'd need to break that encryption, which can be done by Daniusoft DVD Ripper. It is a powerful and easy-to-use DVD to Creative Zen X-Fi Converter software

It can convert DVD to Creative Zen video including AVI,WMV,MPEG that fits for Creative Zen. This DVD to Creative Zen Converter can also convert DVD to Creative Zen audio MP3, WMA, WAV with super fast speed and excellent quality.

Also, it is very easy to use. All you need to do is:
  1. 1. Importing you DVDs;
  2. 2. Choose output format and path;
  3. 3. Then start converting.
All the tasks of ripping DVD to Creative Zen files will be down in good quality and high speed.

Creative Zen Vision: M won't read some .avi files


avi is a container format, they are always different from codecs. obviously, the codec of your avi files can be supported by zen.

How do you put Videos on The Creative Zen Mosaic MP3


well, creative zen likes avi, mpg and wmv formats

the reason that your creative zen won't read the avi is because the necessary codec is missed.

you can use iorgsoft creative zen video converter to convert the video to mp4,wmv then put them to creative zen.

if you want to put DVD onto creative Zen, fine, you can use iOrgsoft DVD to Creative Zen converter to remove the DRM(Digital Right Management) and regional restriaction from DVD, and you can also use it to convert DVD to avi, wmv or mpg for playback on creative zen.

Can't convert mp4 files through Creative Zen video converter


Creative Zen has its own video format, so you need a thrid party video converter to convert videos to the format fit for your player.
Here I recommend you try Wondershare Video Converter Platinum, which could convert between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.) that support all popular portable media players (such as Creative Zen, Zune/Zune HD, iPod/iPhone and PSP) and the latest iPod Nano 5G, iPod Touch 3, iPhone 3GS/OS 3.1.

Converting video


Double-check to make sure you have all the correct Codecs installed:

Not every file type is going to be able to be converted using this siftware - you may need to convert first to avi or some format that the Creative converter recognizes, and then re-run the conversion and transfer.

Unable to add avi files to to media library


hey,

you won't be able to sync the avi file because your type of avi is not supported in the Zen

if you have the creative software on your computer well go
into the menu and select creative, because I don't have it in front of me I can't tell you where this is though all you have to do is search through and look to find "video converter" it's as easy as that.
all you do is when you find this is browse for you file and say what format you want to format to and start formating. they will ask if you want to sync you finished file to your zen.
