Default Software Update (4.2) Thoughts?

I'm unable to log in, which might be because they're still updating. It was a rather small download, and I notice no new features.

The update may hint at a Zune phone though.

AVI Files can be read by the software, but still are converted when you sync.

No- not yet. This was a software update, and firmware for 'older' zunes (4GB thru 120GB, but not the HD.) "Maintenance" only.
Xvid will come later, as will Smart DJ on the device, and perhaps some surprises, too.

I'm having problems downloading it, it says I have to do a Windows update, but my PC is up to date. I'm getting frustrated that I can't update the Zune software!

like i said in my other post, there are some people commenting on the engadget post, and they are saying AVI and Xvid files are loading on the software and syncing to the device (getting converted at time of sync...but they are syncing)

The Zune software converts the video, which I'd rather do beforehand anyway, as I'd have more control of the video quality in something like Handbrake.

This could also just be a hint that you can sync windows mobile devices with the software. As of now, you use Windows Media Player to formally sync it (though other things can be used). Microsoft has made the notion that the zune software is to replace WMP.

This is from the link above. Basically, if the windows mobile phones are going to be able to sync with the software it is already decided which phones it will be. It could be all Winmo phones depending on if they run the same firmware or not (meaning they are recognized under the same code).

The software update helped me.
Before, only two of my five friends showed up in the software, so I couldn't put them on my Zune. They showed up on zune.net, but not the software. When I updated the software, I put a couple songs on my Zune and looked at device>summary and it said "5 items added", and 2 were songs and the other 3 were my other friends! Yay Microsoft!
