Zen vision m scam!!!!

by mcap56 / January 17, 2006 4:52 AM PST

I love the new zen vision. Sound and picture are the best. It is also easy to use. However, they have inserted a very annoying purchase this track option into the player when you call up the menu in the song screen. It is very easy to hit this button by accident. Someone please tell me how to disable this option before I return it for a refund. I am annoyed!!!!! It is also freezing on me quite a bit.

thats a rather ugly word. I think they put the option there for people who have subscription services such as Yaoo Music or Napster so that they can have the option to also fully purchase a song- so it would remain on their player even if the subscription is stopped.
And the option is at the very bottom of the menu- I wouldnt say that it pops up and is highly annoying since you have to scroll all the way down to even see it.

Perhaps scam is a strong word. I was annoyed. Although you are correct, it is at the end of the menu, it is certainly easy enough to hit it by accident. Most people who use subscription services, use them precisely to avoid paying the per track fee. You can end up purchasing a track you own in your own CD library but didn't want to rip. Also, if if is there for my convenience, where is the option to remove it once it has been selected. It isn't there. The next time I sync, I will be purchasing a track I already own!!!

to ask them how it worked...they explained that for legal reasons, players that support album art have to have that option in their menu. Anyway, the guy said that at present the button doesnt do anything because they havent set the whole thing up yet....he said in the future it would work with certain services (he wouldnt say which)...he also assured me that when it is active, it would ask you to verify the purchase at the time of synching...

Not sure why they didn't email this information. That helps a lot.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
