I just bought a Zen and i tried to load music on it---i've got about 5000 songs on my computer and the zen is supposed to hold around 15000. it stopped short of loading many, and it loaded about 500 into an "unknown" folder, with a few others in the specific folders by album. when i try to play 'random play all', it only plays the ones from the 'unknown' folder. any ideas other than returning it and trading it in for an ipod my friends are familiar with? thanks!

Yes there is no way to speed the thing up i think, but if you have WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER then you can plug your zen in, let it load and when you enter WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER click on the sync button and then you will see the tabs on the left side of the screen. EX.( playlists ) click you name or whatever you listed the device under and pull down the tab. you will see a songs option click it and the songs that are on your zen will come up. click on whatever song you want and hit delete on you keyboard.
The songs you downloaded from limewire should be in a folder somewhere. When you set up limewire you created a folder where your limewire mp3s would be saved You may have used the default folder. Just find that folder where your files are saved then connect your Mp3 player to your computer. Your computer should recognize it as a drive and Appear in "My Computer". Double click on the Mp3 player icon in My Computer. This will open up the player. Then with the player and the limewire folder open just drag the Mp3s onto your Player. I hope this has been helpful.
OPEN AN EXPLORER WINDOW LIKE MY COMPUTER, UNDER THE TOOLS TAB CHOSE THE FOLDER OPTION, CLICK ON VIEW GO DOWN AND U WILL SEE THE SETTING SHOW HIDDEN FILES CLICK THAT OPTION CLOSED THE EXPLORER WINDOW AND THEN REOPEN TO SEE IF U CAN ACCESS THE FILES
I'll run a cleanup on your zen, if that doesn't work then you should format it and re-transfer everything. Additionally, you may want to upgrade your players firmware.
How to enter the Zen’s Recovery Mode for Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware, and Reboot:
1. With the Zen off, press and hold the "play/pause" button.
2. Continue to hold until you perform Steps 3 and 4. If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.
3. Gently push the end of a
thin object (like a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole.
You should be able to feel the release click of the button.
4. Slide the On/Off/Lock switch towards the power button and hold until the boot screen appears on the display.
The Recovery Mode screen appears, and four menu items are shown:
A cleanup of the file system and database files takes place. All
(uncorrupted) data should stay in tact. When the cleanup is complete,
select Reboot. Your player restarts and starts rebuilding its music
library. All files should remain intact unless they were detected as being corrupt.
Format All: This will completely reset the Zen and remove all user stored files on it.
This will prepare the Zen to accept a reload, new, or older firmware
based on the specific firmware file you download and execute on a
computer. Selecting this option will prevent your Zen from being able
to boot, so make sure you have the firmware file on you computer and
ready to load.
Reboot: This will execute a soft reboot of the Zen's operating system.
How to Clean Up, Delete Temp Files, and Reformat the Zen using Zen Media Explorer:
1. Plug the Zen.
2. Go to Zen Media Explorer.
3. Select "Settings and Information".
4. Select the "Tools" Tab.
5. This page will show you the options to Clean Up, Delete Temp Files, and Reformat the Zen.
(Warning: When reformatting, you will lose all files you put on the Zen)
Yes, but you also need to load the ZEN software onto her computer so that you can add music to the player. You can load the playlist several ways, using Yahoo music, Windows Media Player, or using the Zen Media Explorer.
