Microsoft polishes Vista iPod patch
Microsoft has released a revised version of the Vista patch that enables safe ejecting of iPods.
The patch improves compatibility with Windows Vista’s Safely Remove Hardware feature and Windows Explorer’s Eject command. In some cases, using either method to unmount an iPod could corrupt data on the portable media player.
The patch is available for both x86 and 64-bit versions of Vista from support.microsoft.com/kb/933824/en-us and is an update to a previous version released in March.
Apple’s most recent iTunes update addressed several other issues with using iPods in Vista, including problems with iTunes Store DRM compatibility, calendar syncing and software restore. At the time Apple said it was working with Microsoft to fix outstanding issues, including the problem fixed by today’s patch.
