Hello lewy20. Welcome.

hey, i have a creative zen 8gb (its great) and i want to buy some external speakers for it. But i noticed that the connection on the zen is differrent from any other brand i have seen. so how would the zen connect to the speakers with that kind of connection? thanks
Also can you buy a wall charger for this player?
From the Zen FAQ:

The Zen uses a standard USB 2.0 type A to Mini B male to male connector/cable for connectivity and charging through USB ports.
The max input voltage of the Zen is around 5v. Most devices that can charge or run off the USB host power can handle the max 5v of USB ports. 4.2 volts is usually the max Lithium ion batteries are charged to. It is usually around when the high voltage circuit is triggered and stops the charging of the battery. I would not connect a charger to the Zen that puts out more volts then 5v. An output current of up to 1A has been known to wrok just fine.
