Be careful of buying any Creative MP 3 players if you have Windows 8 or 8.1

Summary: I used to like this MP 3 player - that is, until I upgraded to Win8.1 The Creative Centrale management software for the player no longer works. Creative does not support Win 8 or 8.1, and after writing to them, they apparently have no plans to release any patches or firmware to support the newest PC...
Cons: cant turn off the player locks automatically, and to turn off you need drag an icon across the screen and off screen. problem is the icon is impossible to drag off screen. so i wind up just putting down the player on.eventually the battery runs out. so if i want to use again i have to recharge it...
Summary: DO NOT....I repeat DO NOT buy this item. I was able to load songs on it and they did play. but then it started locking up. You never knew when ansd where but it would lock up and not turn off, not play not do anything. I tried resetting it with pin a could times to no avail.
Summary: I got the Zen XFi2 to replace a Zen Creative that gave out. I loved my previous Zen Creative. Ultimately I choose this device over an Apple product because it offered greater flexiblity checking out audio books from my local library.
Summary: Earlier this year my husband saved up and bought one of Creative's 64 GB Zen X-FI2 MP3 players, spending around $300. In this economy, it was a significant purchase for us. At first he was really impressed with it. Within 4 months it had permanent dark marks under the screen.
