    Does anyone know of any way to get a Zune working well with a Mac? As far as I know, compatibility is lacking.

    HAHA!!!

    Microsoft is too greedy to make the Zune Mac compatible. Which is prolly why it's not a HUGE success like the iPod is.

    Hmmm... your mac would probably see it as removable media. You should just be able to drag and drop song into it's music folder. Thats what I have to do with my Sansa.

    Does anybody have personal experience with this? I received a brand new Zune but don't want to bother opening it if it'll be useless for me.

    Considering that it's compatible with 90% of every computer, I don't think that's the reason.

    Good idea. I say, sell it on eBay and get yourself an iPod. Problem solved. :rolleyes:

    As far as I know the Zune is incompatible with OS X. Some say they've gotten it to work under parallels or Bootcamp. There may also exist some some sort of hack for OS X, but it might just be better to sell / trade it for an iPod.
