No, I don't think that there's an easy way how to configure it.

Thanks. Can I config MM to not create them? I don't see such a setting on the device config.

This is the way to tell a MTP device 'this set of tracks is an album'. The exact implementation might differ per device, maybe not all of them need it, but definitely many do.

What are the .alb files that MM device audio-sync puts on Creative ZEN (and possibly all other MTP) devices?

I find these files created with for most (but not all) Artist - Album value pairs and always EDIT: zero length, though Explorer shows content e.g.

Strangely the set differs across apparently identical devices EDIT: containing an identical set of tracks and playlists e.g.
