How to Connect a Creative Zen to a Computer


The Creative Zen is a personal audio device that can play MP3 music files. Each Zen includes a USB transfer cable, which can connect to a PC. Once a Zen is connected to a computer, the internal battery will automatically recharge. A USB connection is also used for transferring music from the computer to the Zen.

Things You'll Need

  • USB Transfer Cable
  • Plug the Zen's USB cable into the small port on the side of the device. Connect the opposite end into an available USB port on your computer.

  • Open the Creative Media Lite software. Click the drop-down box marked "My Computer." Select the music files that you want to move to the Zen.

  • Press the "Transfer to Player" button, which is marked with a green arrow. A green LED light on the Zen flashes while the music transfers. Do not disconnect the USB cable until the transfer is finished.

  • Click the "Disconnect Player" button on the Creative Media Light software. Unplug the USB cable from both the computer and the Zen.

Tips & Warnings

  • Creative Media Lite is usually included on a CD along with the Zen. If you do not see an icon for this software, you may need to first install the program. Place the CD in the computer and follow the setup instructions.
