Yup, that's right. One wouldn't think there would be any Y2K issues with MP3 playback, but apparently there was. Two MP3 devices from Visiosonic and Audio Box refused to co-operate after the turn of the century. Visiosonic's DLL expired at the end of 1999, and Audio Box's interface software used a buggy algorithm for counting dates. There's a patch available for the Audio Box software.
