    I was floored when my pre didn't show up in windows media player as a sync device.

    Anybody else having this problem? Is this a "problem"?

    madmittedly I am running windows 7 rc but other devices work.
    It would be crazy if I have to get itunes to sync with a palm device

    Did you select, on the device, 'USB Drive'? This /should/ allow you to sync with WMP as a removable device.

    This is probably a more appropriate question for the main Pre Discussion forum, but if you're trying to sync in Media mode instead of USB, I wonder if WMP isn't set up to recognize iPods. If that's the case, then that's probably your problem, but like Mr. Smith said, try USB Drive mode instead.

    It does sync with the pre. It even converts the wmv files to a readable format. At least some of them. I have a lot of music that did not make it over so I erased it all off the pre and copied it over manually. Still not happy with it. Now the art work doesn't show up.

    I too am getting no album art, but hey that's better than album art in the photo albums.
