    I recently purchased a 30GB Zen Vision M, but have not figured out how to put some of my dvd's on it. I have not been able to put any video content on it. Where I can get info on how to load videos to this player. Any help would be appreciated.

    You should probably use something like CloneDVD mobile to convert your DVDs to a compatible format.. I see it supports Creative Labs ZEN. It has a 21 day free trial.

    AfterDawn - Apple iPod Video Guide


    They have a forum for this software at Slysoft so you could probably get the specific how-to info there as well.

    I just got my Vision M yesterday and this is how I converted a couple of movies so far with a trial of CloneDVD Mobile with AnyDVD running in the background...

    CloneDVD Mobile gives you a bunch of options on the opening window. I selected the "Zen Vision" option:

    The second screen allows you to browse for the movie and then select various titles. I selected the main movie title only, which was selected by default. I may try a movie with a menu at some point but I don't do it for my regular DVD backups so I saw no reason to do it here.

    The third screen is the Audio and Subtitle screen. I selected AC-3/6 audio and no subtitles. CloneDVD mobile will convert the audio into MP3.

    The next screen is the Output Method screen. I used the default settings. Then I selected "Go!" to start the process. It took about 80 minutes to complete.

    Once that was done I connected the Vision M to the PC via the USB cable and docking attachment.

    Then I opened the Zen Vision M Media Explorer software and selected "Add Media" from the main menu:

    This opens the "Select Folder to Import" window. from there it was simply a matter of browsing for the .avi files that CloneDVD Mobile had made.
    Transferring the file only takes a minute and places them in the video folder in the Vision M.

    Here is the summary of the .avi:

    I took it to work today and had the FM radio playing all day. I "borrowed" a set of PC speakers and plugged them into the headphone jack. I need to see what other options are available for it. I did get the optional case but when I put it in, the fit was so tight that it depressed the buttons and I couldn't turn it off or on. I thought I was going to break it trying to get it back out.

    It took me a while to get the feel for the touch pad buttons and how the menus are laid out. But I finally started getting a feel for them.

    So far this little player has been pretty cool.

    FYI, I've suggested that this thread should be moved to a different forum.

    Cheers

    Go act and child somewhere else alkz, I have no patience for it. If one can't summon enough maturity and common sense to show common decency on a public forum then I don't want to see their nick anymore.

    'Sup Frank. Good to see you my friend.


    Carry on good people :)
