Creative Zen Touch mp3 player ??


My partner has the above device. I've got both the Gnomad2 and Kzenexplorer apps installed.

I can't find the kzenexplorer in any menu's so I can't try that.

I've managed to rip some of the CD's she want's me to put on the device, I can open the Gnomad2 app, but for the life of me I can't work out how to transfer the damn music to the device.

The sourceforge pages don't seem to have any advice/suggestions as to how this is done.

So here I am. As ever, any ideas/suggestions/advice are much appreciated.

regards

John

p.s. Oh and I'm running Kubuntu 6.06 (Dapper).

Can't find it on the menus, so you can't use it? How about just typing the program name into the console...

Is Gnomad2 even detecting the player? If it has the new "PlaysForSure" firmware, it can't be used under Linux.

How can I find out whether it's got the "PlaysForSure" firmware or not ???

p.s. Oh and no, it's not that I "can't" use it, I can't find out how I can actually transfer music tracks to it. The "help" only throws up a Gnomad2 version info box. Plus at the moment, I haven't found any "instructions" for the software either.

Seems like the README has some FAQ in it that might help. There is precious little documentation though especially for the less technically adept. Take a look around the likely install directories for the README file.
