As part of Windows Updates on my laptop today, I installed an optional update called "Driver Update for Zune USB."  It actually installed a pre-release version of the Zune 2.0 software with a version number of 2.1.0522.00.  Has anyone else gotten this update?  I have it running now, and so far, all it does is list music in my library.  When I connect my Zune, the software sees its name and knows it's connected but will not sync.  Just curious if this is Microsoft pushing out a beta, or some kind of accident.

Screen shot at the link below:

Anyone experienced a similar result? Please let us know! Thanks.

Thanks, JJRules.

Wow, lucky you! Thanks much for the screen shot; mind posting any more? I'd love to see how it works.  Grin

No such luck with me; I'm running Vista Home Premium, x64 edition. Embarrassed

It looks like most of the features aren't working, I can browse music in my personal library, but I can't access anything on the marketplace, the categories are there but everything else is blank.  I'm going to leave it open for a while and see if it starts downloading marketplace info.  I'm wondering if I somehow got the update by accident and it actually isn't ready to use yet.

WHERE IT WAS INSTALLED ?
CAN YOU ZIP THE INSTALL FOLDER AND SHARE IT ON RAPIDSHARE OR SOMETHING ?

BTW, why a flash zune logo ?

The interface looks pretty nice Smiley  I wonder how a piece of software like that could just slip out on an update.

Here are a couple more interface shots, you can see the podcast and marketplace, even though they are blank, and the About dialog.

The Zune About picture has a "<TBD>" for Product ID ...

WARNING:
He's either someone who has stolen this software from Microsoft or a Microsoft employee leaking illegally ...

Great pics, I getting really excited now. The new color of the MP looks great, rather then the black. And I like that it has the Top 100 podcast and new podcasts, very nice indeed:)

I didn't get hold of the software illegally, I think it was accidentally released to me through Windows Update, though I don't know why no one else has seen it yet.  I'll probably uninstall it and go back to Zune 1.3 if the marketplace doesn't come up in a day or two.  Anyway, I guess it gives us an idea of what we'll be looking at.

I call shenanigans unless you can provide better proof (i.e. screen shots that look legit).

It's possible someone screwed up and put in on windows update too soon...

Why is there a bit of fuzz around all of the items?

I think it's just a little pixalated.
