Default Linux and Zune HD

Yowzer, I struck gold. While MS purposely hides the Zune HD when running Windows, that's not the case in Linux.

Every folder and it's contents are viewable and accessible. My next project is to see if I can move music and art files to the Zune HD and play them.

No luck

It appears MS copy protected the Zune HD from and writes to and from the device. They have it setup where the Zune software communicates with the device to allow writes to and from the device.

I was able to delete music on the device installed from the Zune software and that was as far as I got but I wasn't able to copy to or from the device. Unless the device is rooted there's no way of writing to the device.

The only thing I accomplished was to view the folders in Linux and that's it. So it's a start and maybe someone with a little technical knowhow can take it to the next level and see if they can hack it and shutdown the copy protection to the device.
