Creative announced today the availability of Zen Vision:M firmware 1.60.01. The new version restores M users’ ability to record FM radio. No word on exactly why Creative has chosen to uncripple its player, but I know more than one M user who will be happy the feature has returned.
Speculation has presumed that Creative had disabled the function due to flak from the RIAA, but that seems questionable since its now returned FM recording capabilities. Oh well, who knows?
