Default Zune HD FLAC support.

Hey, I need a few suggestions from those that are kind enough to help. I'm in the market for a new mp3 player, or media player to be more accurate. I don't see anything interesting on the horizon so I'm settling on the Zune HD. the major reservation I have with the Zune is that it doesn't seem to have FLAC support. I suppose that's because windows is trying to push their own wma that I rarely find files encoded in. At any rate, does anyone know if it's possible to somehow play FLAC on a zune HD? Is there any other player out right now that I should consider or should I be on the lookout for something else? Thanks!

I have a Zune HD - and I love it. However, if FLACS important to you, I'd go take a peak at what Cowon or Archos might have in their corner.

Or maybe take a peak at what devices can be rockboxed.

Zune does not, nor will it ever, support the playback of FLAC. As suggested, a Cowon would be a good player to look at, as well as Sansa & Samsung.

Thanks for the input and suggestions. That's really disappointing news though, especially because I recently started updating my library with FLAC files and I started with my most favorite albums. The Zune HD is so pretty though!!!! I guess I'll take a look at Cowon. Thanks again!!!

OK, thanks - I met the popper Mr. Wiggles awhile back,...I was hoping for some re-education in my chosen field of interest. He is, IMO, pretty much untouchable!!!

Now, go get a new FLAC player and keep us updated please,...

I think he actually meant that sincerely. And there isn't anything I know of that would be a problem. It is a bit hard to take the violet pony seriously though...

I'm very serious, as the J3 is an excellent player. I'd still have my Z:HD tho, if the damn battery didn't come crapped out on me. But, for FLAC playback (mp3 V~0 is 100% transparent BTW) the Z:HD is useless.

Now, w/all the sound enhancements & excellent EQ, great gapless playback for mp3, the long battery life, great codec support for audio & video, hardware controls for when the screen is on hold - plus even more features I can't even remember ATM. The J3 is quite a winner (not wiener!!!).

Now, screw w/the pony & we got's a personal problem,...

Don't worry, DarkSide. Scootaloo's been MIA for a while (damn Florida resort doesn't have wifi in the room), but he always got yo back.
