information from your Music Information Provider. You must register with the
Music Information Provider before you can retrieve disc information. For
instructions, see Using Music Information Provider in your Zen Touch User
Guide.
Tips
•
•
If the CD you are ripping from cannot be found in the Music Information Provider
database, or if you have not entered any album or track information, Creative
MediaSource prompts you for track and album information.
You can change the default ripping format, as well as the bitrate. See Audio
CD/Rip settings in your Zen Touch User Guide.
