Does anyone know anything about the Zune MP3 player. I bought my daughter one for Christmas but after reading about it I think I might have made a mistake. Seems like you can only download music with a subscription through Microsoft and when you cancel you lose all your music.

That is the current arrangement with "Napster To Go" as well. You don't have to pay per tune, just keep your subscription current.

I reckon my next question should be can you buy downloads such as walmart.com and load them on the Zune?

I don't have a Zune player, but mine (Creative Labs Flash Player) acts just like a removable disk when I connect it to my computer.  I just have to transfer .mp3s to it and they play just fine...  If you don't have any mp3s you will have to convert your cd's to them, download from free websites, or pay for the downloads from the sites listed in previous posts.

I looked at the Zune tonight at Best Buy.  It looks nice and has a nice screen but the thing is HUGE compared to all the other players.  I'd take one if someone gave it to me. :^)

My personal mp3 player is a cheap Lexar that uses usb jump drives.  Drag/drop/jam.  Very simple and it works great.

Actually, it's the same price as the same sized ipod.

I have the Creative Labs Zen Vision M, 30 GB.  It's bigger than some, smaller than some.  I love it!  It's extremely simple to use, and you can load music on it quickly and easily.  To me, it's better than an Ipod, but to each their own.

Is this the right thread to mention that I have a Close-and-Play...?   ;)

As big as it is, it should have an 8 track player in it also. ;^) I know, it's not THAT big, but it's bigger than most.

Talk to B.I.L., get us some units to test and we'll write up a nice review here on Nukeworker.com.  See if he'll go for that. :^)
