Depends on the player.  If the player supports USB Mass Storage (UMS), then 
yes Linux will support it.  However an increasing number of players only 
support a M$ proprietary format called MTP that only works under WinXP with 
WMP and all their DRM garbage.

The Creative web-site isn't clear, talking about USB2 Drag-and-Drop, but an 
Amazon reviewer mentions it is and they have it working under Linux.
