Zune & iPod: A Tale of Two MP3 Players


HOME ยป Hardware

Last week Apple and Microsoft released their fourth quarter MP3 player sales figures, which Apple chooses to call its first quarter for some odd reason, and the numbers were a startling contrast. On one hand you had Microsoft with a 54 percent drop off in sales from the fourth quarter last year. On the other, you had Apple, selling a record number of iPods (again).

Somewhere Steve Ballmer must be banging his head against a wall wondering if his company will ever catch a break, while Steve Jobs convalesces contentedly knowing his company continues to grow in spite of economic conditions that would suggest that people would stop buying expensive little gadgets.

For a while now I've been wishing I could replace iTunes with something on Linux and reduce my need for Windows. It would be nice if Apple would just release iTunes for Linux but I'M pretty sure that's not going to happen. The thing is, nothing handles an iPod as good as iTunes. I can't even play my audio books(.aax) from audible.com on a Linux machine at all. Last time I had Banchee as my Linux media player and had it running my iPod, a lot of really bad things happened. For starters, it started re-naming all of my songs to 4 random capital letters, something like this, TAGK, or XAZU, and also deleting songs from my computer completely. I didn't notice it removing songs because it wasn'

Mp3 Players Not Being Detected (Zune, iRiver Clix)
Hardware

I have a zune and an iriver clix mp3 players. When I plug the zune in, it is detected by windows which attempts to install device driver software (and always fails) but it is not detected by the actual zune software itself. Also, it does not show up in "Computer" (as a drive or mp3 player). The above also happens with the iriver.

Some other information:

I've plugged in an ipod nano, and that was detected by itunes and works fine I uninstalled every mp3 software (itunes, zune, etc.) and reinstalled over 10 times. (As well as restarting the mp3 players and the computer). I've been googling this for about 2 weeks and have found no pertinent information When I go into device

non-iPod MP3 players that work with Mac OS X
Hardware
This is way off-topic, and really has nothing to do with Linux, but I tried searching on some Mac forums, and whenever this question was asked, the forum members would just try to convince the original post-er that she should get an iPod.
My question is this (and please answer only if you have actual experience with a non-iPod player on Mac OS X--don't answer if you just think that in theory something should do something):
When an MP3 player, say a Samsung Yp or an iRiver says it's compatible with only Windows XP, does that mean it really just won't work with Mac OS X or that the software to manage music won't work on Mac OS X (i.e., drag-and-drop will still work, a

Beyond iPod - Name your favorite non-apple mp3 players!

I have a Sansa e250 mp3 player which works well with Rockbox on Linux, but I am in the market for something with more than 4GB of space. Prefer to use drag and drop mode in the player rather than connecting it with MTP to a music program. I would love to hear what other players people use, besides iPods, and which ones support drag-and-drop disk mounting or Rockbox! More than 4GB of space. This may be a good thread too for people who want a Linux compatible but think they are stuck with iPod!
