Though I agree WMP VS. Zune is silly because they are the same media player, just with different UIs and the fact that Zune is more of an iTunes alternative because of the Zune Marketplace.
With all of Microsoft's resources, I wonder why they gave up so early on the Zune HD. When they released it, it was a step behind the then 3rd-generation iPod Touch, but why didn't they ever improve it? It's a nice player, but it is not in the same class as my 4th-generation Touch.....I wonder why they never updated it?

My Sony Walkman doesn't support adding album art in Itunes. It only works with WMP. I try contacting sony but all they did was repeat like a robot asking me to use WMP. Currently what i have done was turn off windows features and deleted WMP 12. Install WMP 11 but there is an error that WMP 11 is not installed properly and needs to be reinstalled.

If you want to add album art you need Mp3tag - the universal Tag Editor (ID3v2, MP4, OGG, FLAC, ...)
Depending on which Walkman you have, (I've had three of them over the last couple of years) you may not need WMP at all...you may be able to add your album art to your files with MP3Tag, and then copy and paste your music right onto the WAlkman directly, bypassing WMP. WMP sucks for managing portable players.

Or you could just use Sony Media Go which probably supports your player, since it's Sony's lol
