People might flame the iPod and iTunes for a lot of things but it's one of the best examples of software/hardware interfacing on the common market today. I've had more trouble getting a USB flash drive to "talk" to my PC than I have my iPod.

Oh, how I miss my iPod touch... best device I've ever used, hands down.
What happened to your iPod Touch?

Stolen...

However, I put a passcode on it, so the guy who stole it never got to access my data (without the code, you need to delete all the information on the iPod before you can use it again).

Ouch, that sucks it was stolen. Where was it stolen at?

@Gamer_World14: 1st period Algebra II. Sadly, I know just about every single person in that room relatively well...

Or he could sit there forever typing in each and every permutation. Or just hack it. Or sell it on.

Hehe, I was typing all that while my Zune was freezing up while attempting to play a song :)

However, I think I solved the problem with my Zune. Sorta. Instead of trying to make it work seamlessly with the Zune software, I went into the Device Manager for XP and changed the identity to an MTP device (don't ask what the acronym is for; I don't even know), basically downgrading the Zune to a generic portable object, allowing me to add files to it through drag-n-drop like a normal hard drive :)

I don't mean to sound like an Apple fanboy, but this doesn't happen with a Mac. I know a few people who own Hackintosh PCs (running OS X on 3rd party hardware), and even those are reliable systems.

Never happened to my Zune. Your tech savvy, so I assume you've made sure the firmware is up to date?
