Microsoft fixed a Windows 11 issue that was blocking the Zune media player’s drivers

The latest Windows 11 Insider Preview build (25905) will make it easier to sync the more than decade-old media device that was the brown alternative to the popular shiny white iPod. Zune had a cult following and most recently scored a posthumous product placement in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

Microsoft emphasizes Zune remains “totally unsupported and still discontinued,” but the update will eventually be released to all Windows users.
