You can access a Creative Zen (tested on a Creative Zen Touch 20gb) by installing Gnomad2. This will allow you to transfer music to and from your Creative, and also use the device as removable storage.
1) Make sure you've pinned your repositories, as outlined at the end of the Adding Additional Software Repositories tutorial.
2) To add the repository, open a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T), and first, backup your source.list file, if you have not already done so, in another tutorial. To do this, type:
/home/user> sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.backup
Now the file has been backed up. Type:
/home/user> sudo kwrite /etc/apt/sources.list
And the text editor will pop up. Add the following line to the end of the file:
deb http://xnv4.xandros.com/xs2.0/upkg-srv2 etch main contrib non-free
Save and exit the editor.
3) In the terminal, type:
/home/user> sudo apt-get update /home/user> sudo apt-get install gnomad2
4) If you like, edit /etc/apt/sources.list again (step 2) and put a # before the repository you added, to effectively disable it. It should look like this:
# deb http://xnv4.xandros.com/xs2.0/upkg-srv2 etch main contrib non-free
Save and exit again.
5) To run Gnomad, in a terminal, type:
6) In the advanced mode, a link for gnomad2 will already appear on your Start Menu. If you want to add it to your Easy Mode, follow the http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:customizeeasymode tutorial, at the end of which are the instructions for adding shortcuts to your menus.
