I'm going to be buying either a MacBook or a MacBook Pro very soon, and I'm also looking for a new MP3 player, namely because my iPod has broken down for 4 times now and BestBuy is still telling me they're not going to replace it. Therefor, I'm buying a new one. I can always go with another iPod (which I don't want for the reason above) or I can try another player available on the market. The Zen Vision:M seems to be the best alternative, and I would be quite content with it, except for the fact that it does not work on a Mac. My question is as follows: would the Mac recognize a Zen Vision:M player and allow me to open it in Parallels? I'd prefer Parallels over Bootcamp, if only because I'm not in the mood for booting my computer every time I want to add new music to the player. Has anyone tried this or know if this would work? Any help would be appreciated.
