Will I have issues with XP 64 for downloading music?

    I have had problems with Windows XP Pro64 not being compatible with my
    software. So much so that my nephew installed a virtual system on my computer
    so I can run these programs using Win 98.

    I am thinking about buying a MP3 player as I want to listen to audiobooks
    that I have downloaded (music also). I know absolutely nothing about MP3
    players.

    My questions is: am I going to have problems downloading audiobooks, music,
    and videos if I am running Windows XP Pro 64?

    Depends on the MP3 player, but I would think most major manufacturers have
    64bit drivers available by now. If it's an iPod then I can't speak as to
    the compatibility of iTunes with XP 64bit, but I would expect it to work.
    If it's just a standard USB flash drive with an MP3 decoder built in then
    you shouldn't have any problems dragging and dropping files onto it.

    I am thinking about buying the Sansa Fuze or the Sansa View.

  4. For audio books, verify with the audio book source that the model you're
    looking at works. I use Audible.com, and mostly like it, but not all players
    work with the Audible rights management stuff. (This has nothing to do with
    XP x64 - it's stricktly the hardware compatibility of the player and
    Audible.)

    The iPods work well and provide a good experience with Audible. And with
    most downloaded music. I hate to say it, but I've gone over to the A side on
    this one.
