Tip & How-To about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

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.

A note about "resuming playback": 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.

Zen V Plus Bookmarking

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.

You can use up to 10 bookmarks at any one time.

To insert a bookmark:

  1. In the Now Playing screen, press the Options button and select Set Bookmark .
  2. For ZEN V Plus, you will need to press and hold the Options button. Playback pauses and the Set Bookmark screen appears.
  3. Select a bookmark number.
  4. Your bookmark is assigned to the selected bookmark number. 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.
To delete a bookmark:

  1. Press and hold the Menu/Back button. The main menu appears.
  2. Select Music Library and then Bookmarks .
  3. Go to the bookmark that you want to delete.
  4. Press the Options button. For ZEN V Plus, you will need to press and hold the Options button.
  5. Select Clear Bookmark.
To go to a bookmark:
  1. 1. Press and hold the Menu/Back button. The main menu appears.
  2. 2. Select Music Library and then Bookmarks .
  3. 3. Select the bookmark that you want.
Note: The Bookmark feature is not applicable for contents played from the memory card for players such as ZEN 2GB,4GB,8GB,16GB, 32GB and the ZEN X-Fi Series. ZEN Xtra also supports bookmarks though you cannot place two or more bookmarks for one song or audio book

How do you store podcasts best on a phillips mp4 vibe?

If the device offers the ability to create folders (like rock, folk, classical) that are selectable, create one called podcasts. If not, retitle all the podcasts so that the file names all start with a Z, and then at least they will be at the bottom of a master list when played in sequence. Doesn't help in shuffle mode though, as the podcasts will still play randomly if you can't isolate them to a separate folder.

bookmark

According to RCA you have to get a particular udiobook download. There was a free trial from somewhere in my origional package and that was the correct place for bookmarking.

podcasts

Greetings,
As I understand it video podcasts will not work on the shuffle. However there are a ton of great audio podcasts that you can subscribe to free of charge from the iTunes store. Podcasts vary in length and mbs used. The podcasts I listen to are about an hour long. On a 1 gig shuffle you can fit about 26 hours of podcasts.
Let me know if you have any more questions by commenting in this thread. Also please rate me well if this helped you.
Take Care,
-WN

audiobook download

Playing Songs, Audiobooks, and Podcasts on iPod shuffle iPod shuffle allows you to play your audio files in a couple different ways—you can play songs, audiobooks, and podcasts in the order in which they appear on your player, or let iPod shuffle work its namesake magic for you (that is, shuffle the files by playing them randomly).
Show Me How
If you want iPod shuffle to play audio files in the order in which they appear on the player, move the switch on the top of the iPod shuffle to the play in order (circular arrows) position. If you want iPod shuffle to play songs in random order, move the switch to the shuffle (crossed arrows) position.
ip02_playfnky_04_shuflebutton.gif This iPod Shuffle is set to shuffle.
To play music, an audiobook, or podcast, just press the Play/Pause button. To skip to the next song (or a different song if you're in shuffle mode, or a different chapter if you're listening to an audiobook or podcast), press the Next/Fast-forward button. To fast-forward through the audio, hold down the Next/Fast-forward button. To go back to the beginning of a song (or the previous chapter), press the Previous/Rewind button; press this button twice to go to the previous song or hold it down to rewind through the file.
To stop play, press the Play/Pause button during play. To turn off iPod shuffle, move the switch to the Off position (you shouldn't see green beneath the switch).
