View Full Version : [ubuntu] connect creative zen x-fi to exaile

January 11th, 2010, 11:26 PM
Hi there. I am really new to Linux. I installed ubuntu 9.10 last week and it is my ambition to completely switch to this platform at some point. However, I am experiencing some difficulties with the different music players at hand. I currently try to use exaile as my main player. But I can't make it connect to my mp3 player. My player is a Creative Zen X-fi 8GB. Can anyone guide me through the process of making exaile compatible with my zen? As far as I can read from different posts, it should be possible...
Another question of mine is the following. Is it possible to edit the artist names in the music library. My problem is that exaile has one entry with the artist name Band of Horses and another with the artist name Band Of Horses. I would like to have these entries as only one entry, but I don't know how to edit the one or the other. Right-clicking doesn't lead to anything...

Best regards

You could try Banshee, my creative zen connects automatically, then you just drag and drop the song or album you want over the creative zen icon.
