Bowing to RIAA pressure, Creative's released a new firmware update that removes FM recording functionality from already-released Zen Vision:M players. If users are retarded obedient enough to update, the firmware will also add Czech, Hungarian, Polish and Turkish language support as well as adding a few more rating options to your player.

If you've already updated to 1.50.02 without realizing this kills your FM recording, you may be able to revert to an earlier firmware (we haven't tested it). Personally, we hate to see technology stifled by outdated business models and greedy record execs, but what do we know—we're just consumers.


1.50.02 Released [Epizenter via CNET]

1.41.01 [Creative - Thanks Jon!]
