An oldie relative has asked for one of these for Christmas. He has a PC (running XP) and a stack of CDs, but no internet access.
Will a Clip Zip work without internet access? I can plug it into mine and get any firmware updates in advance. I can also download any software needed onto a USB drive (if they can be downloaded as standalone installers).
Does the software require the PC to have been updated? I installed XP onto it and downloaded all the updates about 8-9 years ago, but it hasn’t been updated since. They live miles away, and we’re visiting them at Christmas so I can’t plug the PC into a net connection and do a one-off update. I’m wondering if it’s dependent on Media Player or other things, e.g. .net etc.
If it would work in this way then would there be issues? Presumably there’d be no cover art, but would there be any other issues?
