MilesTogoe:
When the Zen connects it does not show up as a flash drive.  Whenever I have
moved files off of it I have either used amarok for music, or gnomad for
movies and things that I have recorded.
As a side note, it does have a built in mic that does pretty well, and I
have used it to record ring tones and things like this.  It records an mp3,
I used gnomad to get it off, and then I edit it with audacity.
Cheers
