Hi, all.
My wife has an iPod Nano.
I want to get an MP3 player such as the Creative Zen.
We have a px with XP Pro w/SP3.
What would be the best media program that can run on a pc that would be able to handle the iPod and an MP3 player?
What would be the best format for our music that would work on both.
And what is missing from WMP11 that makes it impossible for me to view some videos from sites on the web?
I can view youtube but not, as an example, the videos from George's reviews, which are downloaded to WMP11.
Thanks for any help.

This is a preference. Being able to "handle" two mp3 players should not be an issue whatsoever.

Most likely codecs. Try VLC media player. It lacks media library functions that WM11 has but contains every codec imaginable.

No problem. Did VLC work for you?
