OK I got my Zune as part of the $99 Buy.com deal I posted earlier... I got it in the mail about a week ago and so far I'm extremely happy with my purchase... Had I know how fantastic this product was I probably would have bought one months ago.
in any case there are some things that are perplexing me and I'm unsure if these are simply bugs or things that I'm over looking.
so here goes...
1. Perhaps the most annoying is that my Zune profile page is no where near up to date with what I've actually played. I listened to my Zune for several hours yesterday, and synced it with my PC several times after the fact and none of it was updated to my profile. I've tried listening to it through the zune player on my PC with no luck there either... So I guess my question is: how does it determine what and when to update my profile.. IMO the profile is completely useless unless it's up to date.

2. Most of the albums that I imported to the Zune player collection were missing album cover art. The software found covers for most of it, but there are a good number of albums with no cover specified or the wrong cover specified. Now I have no problem changing manually adding or changing the album cover on my PC but for whatever reason it wont update the player when I sync. The only way I've found to be able to update the cover art on the player is to delete the entire album from the player and then re-add the album... is there an easier way?
In addition to this there was an interesting problem... I have an MP3 of Benny Benassi's "Who's Your Daddy" I'm on the official mailing list and as a result of that I got a copy of the music video... since I don't always want to watch the video I stripped the audio track out and made it an MP3. the Zune player and software both recognize the artist and title correctly... since it was never released on a disc it has no official cover art and it found some crappy-ass cover art by some guy called "Big Samad Sefiane"... and for whatever reason when the song appeared on my Zune profile not only did it use the crappy incorrect cover art.. but the artist was listed as "Big Samad Sefiane" instead of Benny Benassi.
3. The preloaded videos are flagged by type. Some are flagged "Music Video" and are listed in the music video category and there are a couple of other categories. I can't for the life of my figure out how to categorize my own videos... there doesn't seem to be any option for it anywhere
I could probably write a list of at least 50 little annoying bugs in the way it works/missing features overall I'm very pleased with it though.
