Unhappy SD card rebuilds everytime you switch the Zen MX on

I recently bought the Zen MX and have found a significant issue with the software.

Everytime you turn the player on and select memory card the player rebuilds the details on the card - this can take well over 5 minutes. I have a Creative recommended 8Gb card in the player.

The reason I bought the player was for the expandable memory. It is used for the whole family and because of the problem with rebuilding I have stored the kids music on the internal 16Gb memory and my own on the SD card.

The rebuild happens whether or not you have changed the contents of the SD card and even whether or not you have taken the card out of the player. If it switches off - you have to rebuild.

I've been in touch with Creative who descibe this as 'not a bug but an action'. I completely disagree with this. The advertising of the MX does not suggest anything like a 5 to 10 minute boot up time. I might as well boot my pc which starts quicker than my mx if I want to listen to music.

Has anyone else found this problem and is there any way around it that the guys at Creative have failed to find?
