Vista Not Quite Working With Some MP3 Players

Apparently iTunes and Vista aren't the only things not playing well together. Several Korean manufacturers have issued statements that a few of their players aren't quite working with Microsoft's new operating system.


Three companies so far—Samsung, Cowon, and iRiver—have noted that a few of their players are incompatible with Vista. Each company will release new firmware to customers to update the players. If you have any of these players, it's best to run a dual boot Vista system first while your MP3 kinks are getting worked out.

I've had the Vista Ultimate (preview) running on my machine since November. Was wondering what all the bitching is about, since I live on iTunes (2,000 CDs all Apple Lossless on an external RAID-5 NAS) and hadn't experienced anything bad... since my latest series of updates, Vista now blue-screens on launch of iTunes.

It's recent and it's an MS-originating break. Definitely something to do with plug-n-play (perhaps the 'iTunes Helper' application that lurks and waits for an iPod or inserted CD).

On the other hand, if you're bored and have *preview* Vista, every bluescreen causes an issue ticket to be generated. So I've been bluescreening my machine non-stop when I'm watching TV. So that's nice.
