This is on topic because I am trying to get UMS firmware onto my new MP3
player so that I can use it on Linux.  I need to install it under
windows first.  Sadly this device seems to require Windows Media Player.
 Sadly the software will not install on my legit Windows install (ie. I
paid for the copy XP pro even though I rarely use it.

So, now I have a piece of plastic that does nothing so far, under any
OS.  My troubleshooting begins with "error message not available".  I am
really feeling that this was money well spent.

What really gets me is that 99% of the people out there simply don't
seem to care about the real cost of the proprietary garbage that is
rammed down our throats.
