Windows Vista Build 5472 is now out on Connect!

Posted by gamerzworld on July 17, 2006

Microsoft has just released Build 5472 on Connect! Microsoft wants to remind you to only burn at 1x or 2x because there have been some problems when burning faster than that, but its worked fine for me when going faster than that. This build DOES have support for the Xbox 360. Just to let you testers know, Microsoft wants you to try to upgrade from Beta 2. Expect some screen shots soon!

Connect Testers: Download it NOW! (Only works for Windows Vista beta testers)
