i hate microsoft crap...since this msn 6.1 POS, i cannot sign into it at all (no versions)...it seems to think im not connected to the net.
Its also screwed up music match jukebox...it cant connect to cddb, so i gotta type out the track names :rolleyes:
looks like its format time...

MSN sucks, use Trillian
Music Match sucks, use Winamp 2.91.. (or CDex if you're ripping cd's?)
November 1st, 2003, 04:27 AM
That didn't solve your problem... but yeah :D
November 1st, 2003, 05:02 AM
trillan wont connect to msn either.
tried another ripping prog, reckons im not online aswell...msn 6.1 has screwed something up big time...
November 1st, 2003, 05:44 AM

Mines workin sweet, (ver 6.0) add firstname.lastname@example.org
November 1st, 2003, 06:28 PM
had myself all set up to format...burnt about 20 cd's of stuff...
I have Zone alarm on my comp, but it was screwing with internet explorer, so i set it not to run. Just opened it up, and now msn works!
November 1st, 2003, 07:51 PM
also, the new versions of AIM disable things msn messenger needs without asking you.

Hmm yeh Zone Alarm sucks too, use Norton :D
