Default Where's My Zune Original?

So where are my Zune 80 pictures you might be wondering? On Monday, I received my very awesome Zune from Zune Originals and I wanted to get pictures up for everyone to see. I will say that the Zune 80 is definitely an outstanding update to my Zune 30. I loved the Zune 30 and think the brown and green double shot was a very unique and attractive offering.

The Zune 80, however, in my mind, blows it away in terms of design. The slimness is certainly one factor, but I never was a fan of metal border that went around the screen and d-pad on the Zune 30. The face of the Zune 80 is much more elegant.

So with all of these great things to say, where are the pictures? Well, I havenít exactly had a smooth ride with the 80 so far this week. First my primary PC couldnít install the Zune USB driver correctly. It seems that this is a known, and as yet unresolved, issue. In, what was in retrospect, a really dumb move, I attempted to fix the problem on my own. It seems that I managed to uninstall the USB controller from Windows Vista. And being that the computer is relatively new, it has no legacy PS/2 ports. This means I am completely unable to use it for anything.

So now Iím back on my Windows XP machine and instead of photographing my Zune, Iíve been busy getting my music library updated. I tried copying all my music from my Zune 30 to this computer and while it will all play on the computer it wonít play on my Zune 80. So I am redownloading my music, one artist at a time, to fix the licenses. Its about as much fun as it sounds. On the bright sideÖI still absolutely love playing with the new touch pad.

And while the initial USB issue is definitely a serious problem, I only blame myself for my bricked PC. Doh!
