    I have windows XP media center edition. I have automatic updates turned on, I
    recently downloaded the SP3 for media center edition. I have recently tried
    to download and install the zune software on my computer but it says that my
    version of media center isn't compatible. I need to upgrade to the newer
    version, I can do this by going microsoft's website and/or downloading the
    newer version through turning on my automatic updates. I have went to the
    site and downloaded all the critical updates, all the software updates that
    correspond to the software I have, and the optional updates that also
    correspond to what I actually have and use on my computer. Even after all
    this, nothing is working. I love my zune, and I am using the same media
    center edition disc that I used to install the OS on my old laptop too. Zune
    worked fine on there, but not on my new computer. I am thoroughly confused.
    any help you guys can give me?

    I'm having the same problem. I used to have it installed, and it never gave
    me any problems. I just put in a new motherboard and video card, and need to
    reinstall all my programs. Now it won't let me install it. I switched to
    Zune because iPods are nothing but headaches, but if I can't install zune,
    then what's the point?

    I finally figured it out, but I couldn't figure out how to get back here to
    tell everybody. There was an update I had to download for Media Center which
    I had the hardest time finding. I only found it by searching for it
    specifically. Some different player I tried to download told me I needed
    that update. I think it was the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center
    2005. try searching for that specifically and installing it.
