Zen Xtra to show as a Mass Storage Device?
I posted this in the Centrafuse Font End category, but I don't think it belongs there - anyway, I want my Creative Zen Xtra 30G mp3 player to show up in WinXP as a mass storage device, instead of an audio device so it could be used by Centrafuse - I would like to know if the FIRMWARE update BELOW will allow for this?
Ok, this isn't just for David, does anyone know if this firmware update will make the device show up as a mass storage device in WinXP? I am trying to decide what the bold feature below actually means - I hate doing firmware upgrades, but this may be a neccessary evil if it allows the device to be seen as a mass storage device...but why is WMP10 required? Also, once the firmware is updated it can't be switched

According to the Creative Download Center:
