Microsoft releases Zune update
"We were aware a limited number of users were experiencing that issue, and we were able to address it," said Zune spokeswoman Katy Asher.
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.
Microsoft also noted that the Zune held its No. 2 spot in NPD's February retail sales figures, though its share of the hard drive-based music player market dipped to 8.8 percent from 9.9 percent a month earlier.
"We're still happy with where we're at," Asher said, noting the company's strategy is a long-term one not focused on month-to-month fluctuations.
Microsoft released a Zune update in December, making the device and its desktop software compatible with Windows Vista.
