Re: I hate Microsoft!!
Vista sucks! Seriously, everyone who hasn't yet needs to leave that crap behind and switch over to Windows 7. It's somewhere between 11 and 293 times better. It's everything Vista should have been, and then some.
Try updating your Zen's firmware. Hopefully that should do the trick. And I'm afraid you're stuck with Windows; last time I checked, Creative's players aren't OS X compatible. I know this was the reason I got rid of mine and bought an iPod when I got my iMac.
