Is Zune 3.0 okay to download

by Ms.Gadgettes / September 16, 2008 6:08 AM PDT

I have a Zune 80gb from last December and see I can get the software upgrade for 3.0. Is it okay to update the software? My main concerns are if the software is a good upgrade and if there are many bugs in the software... If so I would prefer just to wait because I like my Zune the way it is, so I don't think I have to update it. But, if it is a good update I would like to.

I'm pretty excited to see what it all offers. I love my Zune, I don't see why it has such a bad rep, but I think it is great!

Thanks again!

You can download it without a hitch. There are a lot of really cool features that come with the new zune software so have fun playing around with it Happy

So far I really like it... I've not had much time to use it (too busy with work right now) but from what I've seen it looks good.

If I recally correctly the background image for the Zune is gone now, it is just black. But I can't find the one that used to be in the background. I've had my Zune in the dock for so long that I've forgotten what it looked like a little bit.
