Seriously, if Sony made a CD that could only be played on Sony players there would be an uproar of anti-trust angst. I also am interested in why this only appears in the Business Journal and not on the AP or Reuters wire.
Not only am I pissed off that I can’t listen to music I’ve paid for on a device other than my iPod or computer, but I’m also unhappy with the fact that if I don’t use my iPod on a daily basis, the iTunes songs won’t play. There is still a charge on the device giving it power and the songs I’ve burned on to it from a CD work, but those damn acc files or whatever they are refuse to lay idle longer than 24 hours or so. I have to reconnect my iPod to my computer and have it update before the iTunes will play again.
I’ve looked for help on this issue on the iPod support site only to be told that I need to reinstall the Windows operating system. Yeah, right! I’ve looked at the forums only to read that my problem is too rare for Apple to deign looking into creating a fix. Too rare? I know of six people who have the same problem, none of whom use the same computer to update their devices. Granted my sample might be a bit small, but that doesn’t seem very rare to me.
Anyone else have this issue?
