*wipes cobwebs off the topic*
As a new Vista 64-bit user, have a big warning to anyone in my boat considering Rhapsody -- they don't currently support *any* 64-bit systems with their Rhapsody software. This has left me in the lurch with my Rhapsody-branded Sansa e260R (I love it and like Rhapsody's monthly "all you can eat" music subscription, though the Software was incredibly finicky about updating properly or behaving unless you turned all of IE's security features to the minimum).http://www.rhapsody.com/-software
And this isn't one of those "doesn't have a native 64-bit version"; the software just doesn't work on 64-bit OSs at all (afik). From what I've read, they haven't been able to find a way to get Rhapsody to take advantage of the 32-bit emulator stuff that (so far) has let me run most games and programs without problems.
After weeding through the manual, I can switch the Sansa to Plays for Sure (MTP- Media Transfer Protocol) mode, which will at least let me still burn my CDs (I still buy those neanderthal things on occasion) and presumably let me use another service if I can find one whose software will work with 64-bit Vista. But I've got probably a thousand or more songs on it via Rhapsody, and I don't really want to have to keep my old PC hooked up just to keep that alive. I guess if I'm brave I could set up 32-bit Vista, or XP, on this system's second hard drive and dual-boot. But the Rhapsody software is a pain anyway.
I really do prefer the subscription type music service, but it sounds like iTunes 7.6 and later works fine in 64-bit Vista out of the box, so I might look in that as an option.
I guess this shouldn't surprise me. As much as I like Windows XP, I remember grousing quite a bit about favorite older Win95/98 games I couldn't run on XP, even in compatibility modes. It just wasn't something I was thinking of when I picked out my new PC. Heck, I didn't even realize my new HP had the 64-bit Vista version.
