Final fix for the iPod-Vista glitch

Microsoft and Apple have come up with a new Vista patch so iPods won’t get scrambled when using Vista’s “safely remove hardware” controls.

Apple had urged people to hold off buying Vista after the bug surfaced, although Apple was late making Vista updates to its software. Microsoft then issued a patch in March.

That’s all water under the bridge. Tuesday, an updated “final” patch that both companies worked on was made available, according to a ComputerWorld report pointing to an announcement on the Vista team blog.

The patch will be delivered to Vista users via Windows Update on May 22, or you can download it now from this section of microsoft.com.
