wow, i'm starting to get annoyed with creative. they need accessories- fast. and useful ones, like a belt pouch or things you can add on to ur micro and stuff.

i know they are making wireless headphones, but i mean like the little stuff- ya know? protectors, docks, skins (not that we need them), and things that the ipod has...
I'd like a little dock with a red and green led that you could you could plug in your USB or charger lead and with this dock you could charge up your spare battery!!!!

Can you look through the menus of the micro while a song is playing? Like, if im listening to a song, am i able to browse the other songs on the player w/o having the current song being interrupted?

whats the easiest way to do this?

TIA!
yes, upgrade, but if you have any trouble transfering files to and from the micro via wmp then just download the 1.00.xx and install that. as for sound quallity, thats a comprimise you'll have to make on your own. higher kbps = larger file size and lower battery life but better sound and just the inverse for smaller. dont go below 128kbps or above 192 with a portable. so if you want a nice middle ground use 160.

as for a program to do this converting i gotta go with the ever favorite, easy, quick to use and more importantly free dbpoweramp music converter. www.dbpoweramp.com

same here! when i got my zen micro, i was not expecting a spare battery... i was so happy.

i also was very shocked when i opened mine too because it was so small. i felt like it was tiny right when i opened, but it doesnt seem as small anymore- cuzim more used to it now...

Upgrade the firmware to version 1.01.03, which fixed a few bugs, especially the battery life.

I will update if there is any new findings.
As expected, feedback is they do not know about the removal of headphone will affecting the sensitivity of touchpad.

Anyway, I have some discussion with my friend on this. It seems related to grounding, both of us believe so.

Well, since I had my headphone plug into the player all time, I do not think it is a big issue.

Earbud grey padding

I'm having a bit of trouble with my earbuds. Often the grey little padding/covers fall off the earbud. I don't know why they do so much. But today, I took my Zen for a walk (first ever, outside) and put the 'phones in my pocket. Upon arriving back home, the covers were off both buds, leaving only the plastic! I found one cover in my pocket, but couldn't locate the other. It's better with the cover, because they stay in the ear better, and protect from coldness on chilly days. I'm going to contact Creative about this, and hope they send me a replacement.

Anybody else got gripes about this?

i don't use the stock earbuds, but the pads on my iriver earbuds fell of all the time. you can buy 4 for a dollar at radio shack. they'll probably be black, though.

Shortly after buying my zen micro, I updated to the 2.00.12 version. Would that have also fixed some of the bugs?

I believe 2.00.12 added support for Microsoft PlayForSure as well as inclusive previous bug fixs, which means you can drag and drop if you have WinXP and WMP10 installed in your system.
