This is how to accessorize your new zen with office supplies for under two dollars!
What you need
-Pliers with wire strippers or a knife
-Paper clip (coated ones work best)
-Paper binder clips, mauly clips, (whatever you want to call them)
Step 1: Cable Holder
If your anything like me you get paranoid when your zen's battery gets low. You also might like to use it's sd card as a flash drive. In order to do either of these you need a usb cable, but don't have a good way to carry it.
For this step you will need the mauly clip. Clip it onto the big end of the usb cable as shown in the picture.
Take off the handles and bend them as shown.
Keep your cable on your keys or any other convenient place.
Step 2: Reset Pin
My zen is great, but sometimes when I transfer songs onto it it freezes (using gnomad2, not its own software)
For this step you need a small paper clip
-Unfold the paper clip (see picture)
-Cut the paper clip with pliers (see picture)
-Strip coating off of end of clip
-Make a loop at the end and mount on headphones
Reset whenever without needles!
Step 3: Desk Holder
If you like to make things and aren't ocd chances are your desk probably doesn't have space for your zen or if it does it has lots of things that could ruin it. A few days ago I bought a case for it from the dollar store, but I still don't like to keep it there so I made this.
All you need is a big paper clip.
Step 4: Wrapping Headphones
I get so annoyed when people wrap thir headphones tightly around their players. They damage the pug for nothing.
Sorry, just had to say it.
Step 5: Final Thoughts
So thats it!
