Microsoft on Wednesday released a minor update to its Zune software aimed at fixing several issues, including one that was causing some users to hear skipping when playing back purchased songs.
"We were aware a limited number of users were experiencing that issue, and we were able to address it," said Zune spokeswoman Katy Asher.
The software maker had originally hoped to have the update by midmonth, but the patch took slightly longer than it had hoped to develop and test.
In addition to addressing the song-skipping issue, the Zune 1.3 software update aims to offer quicker syncing and improve a situation where the Zune's battery could drain more quickly after using the FM tuner.
