Sign in to queue

Description

Zune Insider announced that there is a new firmware update for the Zune, version 1.3. Fixes in this release include a skipping problem that some users were experiencing, improved reliability with device detection and sync'ing, and some changes to the FM tuner so it doesn't drain the battery in sleep mode.

Here's how to update the firmware on your Zune, btw.

    I know what we were told was fixed.  But I have to tell you that 1.3 fixed one of my few complaints with my Zune.  If I'm in an artist listening and I back out a few levels, once it got back to albums and then other artists it'd take a good 2-3 seconds to pause and enumerate the list.  After 1.3?  Instant.  I can hop back back back without a pause.  And track loads seem to be a little bit faster too.

    All in all for a "bugfix" patch, I'm REALLY pleased!

    PS:  Love the BitterSweet on the Zune. I actually ended up picking that album up.  Good stuff!

    No, it won't.

    I never had any skipping problems, but i do agree going back and forth is alot smoother, and i only have 200 megs free.
