Creative Zen Vision:M Firmware Disables FM Recording
Posted by michaelshawnlane on October 13, 2006
The latest firmware for the Creative Zen Vision:M does something you might want to know about. It disables the your ability you once had to record FM radio. In the release notes for firmware update 1.50.02 it states it will disable the FM recording capabilities. Well it seems from the user forums on Creatives website many owners are a little upset by this.
I don’t understand why companies feel that it is right to disable features in firmware updates. I assume Creative disabled the FM recording feature because of pressure from the RIAA. I have not been able to locate an official release from Creative on why they did this. If anyone has information on this please let us know.
