Unhappy

Not so good news. This is part of the email I got from creative:

"
Dear Giancarlo,
Thank you for contacting Creative Labs Online Customer Service Department.
We are expecting a release sometime next month."

---


Damn it... And when I called them they said "mid to late october".

This might cause me to cancel my pre-order and get the 8GB instead. Do you think it is really worth it?

Good point, plus you save a boat load of money for getting bigger sized one...

I really hope they do the firmware between now and... very soon

I got another questions... probably some stupid questions... flash is better than a HD player right? Doesn't it have less potential for bad sectors? How much faster is flash compared to an HD player?

Is the Zen faster than the ZVM?

Flash memory is pretty much like RAM in your computer, it just keeps it for ever. Flash players should be fast because you dont have to wait for the hard drive to spin up etc.

I dunno about bad sectors, I think the main reason you get bad sectors is because the hard drive gets some trauma thus making it create holes on the discs inside the drive...
