On Zen and Music

So, a couple of weekends ago, I reformatted my home machine. No biggie, got everything situated nicely. And I think I'm good to go.

Then I try to hook my my Creative Labs Zen Vision M: 30 to it.

No amount of tomfoolery could get my pc to recognize it. None. I was completely flabbergasted by this. I had no idea what was wrong with it.

That is, until I realized that it was looking for an MTC driver. Which, after some digging, is only distributed with Windows Media player.

So, in order for my MP3 player to connect to my XP PC, I have to install Windows Media player (Version 10 and up).

That, my good friends, is completely retarded. I can't even grab the appropriate drivers from Creative Labs because *they don't exist*.
