yes, go through the tracks that you want, and press the menu button, then select the add to selected option. Once you are finished with this, go to the now playing list, and select make playlist. It is alot easier if you connect it to your computer with the software though.

SOURCE: can't create playlists on my zen x fi

I tried some suggestions posted here, and after some testing, I can now give you step-by-step instructions to create a playlist on your Creative Zen.

First, you need to think of the NOW PLAYING list as the "selected songs to be added to a playlist".

So, to start clean, let's empty out the NOW PLAYING list as follows:
1) from the MUSIC menu, select NOW PLAYING
2) when a song is shown on-screen, click the context menu
3) select REMOVE ...
4) select REMOVE ALL
Now, the NOW PLAYING list is empty.

Now, you need to select (mark) the songs you want to add to your new playlist:
1) go to an individual song
2) click the context menu, and select ADD TO SELECTED
3) go to another desired song, and do step 2) again
4) repeat until done

Now, to create a NEW playlist, go to the MUSIC menu, then:
1) select NOW PLAYING
2) it will show you the first song that you selected
3) press the Right button, to scroll through all of the other songs you selected
4) when any song is shown on-screen, click the context menu
5) select SAVE AS PLAYLIST (this refers to ALL songs in your NOW PLAYING list)
6) type the name for your new playlist, and click checkmark
ALL of the songs in the NOW PLAYING list are now saved as your New playlist.

From the MUSIC menu, select PLAYLISTS. You will see the name of the playlist that you just created. When you select that playlist, you will see the list of songs you had selected.

Please note that these songs are still in your NOW PLAYING list also. To create a another New playlist, you will first need to empty out the NOW PLAYING list as you did above.

I hope that helps.

Enjoy!

SOURCE: Zen Xtra Error Message When Creating Playlist

The only solution I know of is to reformat the hard drive. It's pretty time-intensive, but it does work. I use Notmad to back up the playlists. Once restored, they all work, even the ones that had initially failed.

I've never had the problem on my 60GB Zen Xtra (non-upgraded hard drive), only with my 120GB, so my naive guess is that the problem may be caused by the machine somehow not handling the extra hard drive space properly.

Also, both times it's happened, I've seen a warning sign: I usually have a lot of stuff loaded into "selected music", and when I add another album or two it partially clears the selections. And it does so in a weird way: only a few selections remain visible, yet it keeps playing at least some of the now-invisible selections.

I'm starting to think it's time to switch players, and maybe get something I can put the Rockbox OS on.

Hi,
You can use iTunes or iMesh instead for creating a playlist and moving files, but first you will need to copy all the audio files you have from your MP3 player to your computer then use either one of the 2 software I mentioned to sync your audio onto your MP3 PLayer.
Also make sure that the Firmware of your Zen is up to date.
I hope this helps.

My Creative Zen 4gb will not appear in Itunes ?


Hello,

To convert iTunes music for Creative ZEN, you shall download TunePat audio converter from a website. You shall run TunePat audio converter and iTunes simultaneously and set TunePat as the default burning drive for iTunes. You may also create an iTunes playlist to hold the songs you want to convert for Creative ZEN.
Once the conversion is completed, you can find the MP3 or WMA songs in the output folder, with all ID3 tags and album information intact. Then you can open Creative MediaSource and sync the converted to your Creative ZEN player.

Take care.

open zen folder from my computer, Make sure file is put in MP3 file or DHCM file. Manually drag it to a specific file and not just drive alone. Make sure all your drivers are downloaded. You can also create a playlist in media player and sync device and add playlist to zen from media player

Need Creative Zen user manual. No longer on the website. I really just need to know how to create playlists if you can help me with that.


  • Creating playlists for Creative Zen MP3 player
  1. Step 1 Turn your Creative Zen MP3 Player on and add music to its hard drive if you haven't already. Without music on your player, you won’t be able to select tracks for a playlist.
  2. Step 2 Select "Music Library" from the Main Menu. The Main Menu should appear as the first menu when you turn your device on.
  3. Step 3 Select "Now Playing" from the options available, then press the Options button.
  4. Step 4 Select "Save as Playlist" from the list of options. This will save the tracks you have listed currently as a playlist that can be reloaded later.
  5. Step 5 To play a playlist back, go to the Main Menu, select the playlist and click

Trouble Filing Songs into Playlists


ok, sounds like a problem I had when I was working out the software! The easiest way to create a playlist with the Zen, is doing it over your PC, if you don't have the software it is available for FREE download at the official creative Zen site, just choose your model and region then hit download- simple! (You won't need Zencast with sleek photo model) ok! install your software blah blah blah, once it's gone through that process, restart your pc and then plug in your zen. the software should instantly recognise that your player is connected, so now, you can open up the software via desktop shortcut or start menu. From here, you've got a whole ton of options, whether to add to your library, create playlists etc etc. Choose create playlist and the process is easy. Left side of the screen is navigation of your Library, right side is navigation of current playlists. Create a new list, then name it. From the top left of the screen, select a folder on your library to open, the lower left displays what's in the folder you are viewing. move tracks over accordingly, holding down ctrl while you click is a fast and easy way to select more than one track at a time. hit add in the center of the screen to move stuff over to your new list. when you're done, save it. when you exit the software and unplug your zen, it should take a minute to update itself, sometimes you may need to restart Zen also to get the playlists updated. I hope this helps!
