If you wish to download additional music tracks to your player, you can either download music tracks from Internet music sites (see "Downloading from the Internet" on page 2-6) or rip them from your audio CDs to create digital files on your computer. For more information, see "Ripping from a CD" on page 27. Music files can be encoded into the supported formats (MP3, WMA or WAV file formats), and then transferred to your player with Creative MediaSource Organizer. Data files can also be transferred to and stored in your player, for example, you can transfer a large data file from one computer to another. Data can be transferred to your player with the Creative NOMAD Explorer application.
Getting Started 2-5
Downloading from the Internet
To get MP3 files from the Internet, use a search engine to locate sites with MP3 content. You can also try out these sites (web sites listed here are correct at the time of this documents release):
It may be illegal to encode MP3 files for trade or sale unless you have the express or explicit permission of the copyright holder(s).
Follow the instructions on the site to download the music files to your computer.
When connecting to your Internet Service Provider, usage charges are incurred.
Getting Started 2-6
Ripping from a CD
The first phase in making an MP3 file is extracting audio data from an audio CD. To extract audio data, you will need a CD-ROM drive that can extract digital audio data, and a program known as a ripper. With Creative MediaSource Organizer, you can rip tracks from most audio CDs. This program uses the CD-ROM drive to read the audio tracks from the audio CD and stores it on your hard disk. The time needed for a successful audio extraction depends on: CD-ROM drive speed defects, like scratches on the audio CD error-checking features on the CD-ROM drive Encoding is the second phase of making an MP3 file. Encoders are used to convert the stored audio tracks, usually WAV files, into MP3 files. MP3 encoding is a lossy compression methodology where some data is considered inaudible and is removed before encoding. Using the standard sampling rate and bitrates will ensure that your MP3 files retain much of their audio quality. The standard bitrate of most MP3 files is 128 Kbps, although some are set higher, at 160 or 192 Kbps. Higher bitrates will result in larger MP3 file sizes, with better audio quality. Use Creative MediaSource Organizer to extract audio tracks and encode MP3s. See the Creative MediaSource Organizer online Help for more information.

Selecting Reload Firmware from the rescue mode screen erases your players firmware. DO NOT Select the Reload Firmware option unless you have downloaded a newer firmware version for your player, or have been advised to do so by the Creative Customer Services center.
Frequently Asked Questions C-4
Can I jog with my player? You should not subject your player to continuous shocks, such as those that are likely to occur while you jog or run. You can take a nice long walk with your player, though. Should I leave my player plugged into the power adapter? No, you should not. After charging the battery or using the player, disconnect it from the power adapter. Leaving it plugged in leads to heat buildup, which is not good for the player or the battery. Can I use the player for portable data storage? Yes, you can. However, your player is designed for storing and playing audio, not as an extra hard drive. You can use the supplied USB cable for speedy transfers to and from your player. Your player will not be recognized as a drive. Use the NOMAD Explorer application to help you manage data files. If I damage or lose my power adapter, can I buy a similar, off-the-shelf adapter? No. The adapter may not be compatible with your player, and may even damage it. You should get a replacement adapter from Creative at www.NOMADworld.com, or your local Creative office/distributor. Can I transfer DRM protected WMA files to my player? Yes. To transfer DRM protected WMA files to your player, you can use either Windows Media Player or Creative MediaSource. If you are using Nomad Explorer, DO NOT attempt to transfer DRM protected WMA files using the "drag & drop" or "cut & paste" method. This does not transfer the licenses that allow you to play the track.
Frequently Asked Questions C-5
I have to recharge the battery quite often. Is there anything I can do to make it last longer? Generally, any operation requiring the player to access the hard disk uses battery power. Consequently, filling your player to capacity is not recommended. However, some operations consume more battery power:
a long backlight timeout setting. A shorter timeout conserves battery power. a high contrast setting. Position the player so that you can read the display without using a high contrast setting. too much use of fast forward/reverse. turning the player on/off too many times. prolonged use at high volumes.
For battery charging and handling instructions, see "Charging the Battery" on page 2-1.
