Connecting to the Computer
The file-transfer process is described graphically in the transfers window
For the player to communicate with the computer, you install the driver and the exclusive software that you receive on the CD. Without that, you cannot access files on the player’s internal had disk drive. Working with file managers through the generic driver is not supported, which is not too handy. You have to organize play-lists in Creative MediaSource Organizer – I have never considered it as an intuitive tool with a friendly interface, and inexperienced users may find this program very complex and confusing. I do wonder why Creative is trying to force this utility on its users, without permitting any alternatives. I spent quite a lot of time to learn this exclusive file manager and then spent some time more to clear away the mess of musical files that grew after my copying albums from the computer.
NOMAD Explorer is the only way to access files and folders on the player
Creative says the player can be used as a universal portable data-storage medium, but you should install the file manager called NOMAD Explorer first. So, if you’re going to use the Zen Touch to share data between two computers, you have to install this program on both machines.
