Will my zune, which arrives in a couple of days, automatically pick up the upgrades?

Your Zune will arrive with an install CD, which will most likely not have the upgrade. However, when you install it from the CD, it will automatically look for recent upgrades, and install those at that time. So you should be good to go!

Ok, from what i've seen from comments on Engadget, the software will not work with Vista RC2 (the beta version of Vista, or any other beta of it for that matter).  Glad I didn't install Vista on my comp when I had the chance  Undecided.

Great going Zunerama Ed, I have tried several times to update my software and i get installation error close all programs restart  and try again.  still no joy SadSadSad.

I have followed link zunemediaplayer listed and only North American Op systems supported anyone got away around this with out any reinstalls.

After yesterdays plauged firmware update i am not best pleased with MS atm. as since i have tried software update i cannot sync my Zune with software.

I get installed 100% at the bottom of the window then the dreaded inst error.

Help someone I may be missing out on something special Smiley LOL Smiley
