Yes, really. It will be in the middle of playing music, and it will

crash. I'm using a minimal installation, no device sync stuff, no Winamp

Agent, no library. I have no idea why it crashes and I'm frankly not

interested in dicking around with it to find out. That's probably

because I had to reset my PC twice in the last month or so, so this is

my second go-round of reinstalling all and sundry. So at this point,

I'll just take a media player that works if it's decent.
