    I just upgraded from XP to Vista premium and now my zune software on my
    computer does not recognize my zune device when attached. It says I need to
    download the software driver. I try to do it and it is not found. Under my
    device manager my Zune is listred as an unkown device. I have tried just
    about everyhting. Any help would be great.

    I understand that you can download the Vista driver directly from Zune.

    Jonathan I tried eveything that was written but whe it prompted my to
    "extract here" I did that but couold not get the .MSI file. NO GOOD but
    thanks. I guess I will keep trying. This is very frustating.

    Dale I download the software from Zune and it tells me I have the latest but
    when I plug my device in it tells me I need the driver.

    Try uninstalling what you have and then download from Zune.

  6. That is strange. I also have Windows Vista and received a Zune for my
    Valentine's gift from my hubby (probably more for him then me). My Zune
    player seems to be working ok and has not requested I download a new driver.
    Did you manage to figure out the problem yet? Please let us know if you do
    just in case we eventually have the same problem.

    On another subject about Zune,

    Do you know why Microsoft does not have videos for us to purchase or
    download from the Zune Marketplace? I have this amazing Zune player to play
    videos on but no compatible place to add them to my Zune. Also, the
    advertisements say iTunes music can transfer to Zune but only a few of my
    songs transferred. What is worse it that my iTunes video's cannot be
    transferred to my Zune either. I had an iPod mini and planned on getting the
    Video version but decided to go with Zune since I just purchased a new PC
    laptop. Anyone have suggestions on how to get movies without getting all
    those converters that I don't know are even legal?

    The Zune player was released long before it was ready. Microsoft has even
    stated that they didn't expect large sales because the services weren't
    ready yet. I think they just wanted it out before Vista or before
    Christmas; who knows.

    The large screen is cool, but of limited value when there's not much to
    display on it. Other than that, I can't think of a single reason to buy a
