Although Creative Zen MP3 Players can be used for a variety of tasks, the most common task (and the one to which they are best suited) is playing music files. Here are some steps to help you to transfer music files to your Creative Zen MP3 Player.
Things You'll Need
- Creative Zen MP3 Player
Install the software included with your Creative Zen MP3 Player on your home computer (or whichever computer you'll be transferring music files from).
Use the USB cable included with your MP3 player. Plug one end into your player and the other into the computer.
Turn on your MP3 player. Your computer should automatically recognize the device, but if it doesn't, double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop and then locate and double-click the Creative Media Explorer icon.
Double-click the "Import Media" button. This will bring up a wizard that will help you locate and select music files on your computer.
Follow the onscreen instructions of the Import Media Wizard to complete the transfer of music files to your MP3 player.
Tips & Warnings
- You may need to restart your computer after installing the software for your Creative Zen MP3 Player.
- If you're running low on hard-drive space on your Creative Zen MP3 Player, check what type of compression your music files are using. There's a chance that you can use a file type that takes up less space but maintains good quality (for example, you could convert your AIFF files to AAC files).
- Stealing music is illegal. Pay for any MP3 music files you own or use.
