Microsoft issues 'final' fix for iPods in Vista
Windows Vista users can now download the "final" version of a patch that allows the iPod to play nice with the latest version of Microsoft's operating system, as Computerworld reports. According to Vista program manager Nick White, the patch "works with the latest version of Apple iTunes to correct an issue that caused some iPods to become corrupted when ejecting them using Windows Explorer or the 'Safely Remove Hardware' function in the System Tray." The patch, which comes over three months after the release of Windows Vista, can be downloaded from Microsoft's site here. As always, the latest version of iTunes is available on this page on Apple's site. In addition to making the patch available for download, Microsoft plans to roll it out via Windows Update on May 22.
