Default Well Look At That, I'm Counted in the Social!


Back in December, I complained that my Zune Card wasn't tracking any plays because I wasn't a US American. At first I thought it was because of my IP address, which is how the Zune team stops me from seeing the Zune Originals site, but after doing a bit more research and hearing from people outside the USA who were able to have their plays tracked, I realized it was something else. Then I found someone else who was having the same problem, and he solved it.

The steps under Windows XP are nearly identical.
