non-zen zen-ness: oh heck

I just got a new Creative Zen Nano Plus 1gb mp3 player as a surprise gift from a friend. The trick is that I'm a Mac user, and by all official accounts the two are incompatible. Help, please.

No amount of googling seems to turn up info on hacks/workarounds that make it Mac-compatible, though I did find a mention (as part of a review on of someone using the 512mb player with iTunes on a Mac. When I connect this one to my computer neither one recognizes the other. I'm not exceptionally tech-savvy so I wonder if there's something crucial I'm missing.

Does it not show up in the same way a flash USB drive would when you connect it? Mine does, and I transfer songs that way.

Best answer: Also: you have to push the USB cord into the player very very firmly, and to turn it on you have to hold the on button on for awhile.

Response by poster: Oh heck, Cowbell, problem solved, if extremely sheepishly.

I learned those things the hard way, after several minutes of being angry that I'd gotten a defective one :)
