connecting a zune

hey, I searched these forums and the internet for a solution, but I can't seem to find a definitive one. does anyone know how to connect a zune to a laptop running fedora 9?
when I straight up plug it in, Fedora recognizes it and that it's a zune, but I can't access it.

It's a zune, and as expected your going to have a lot of difficulty running a Microsoft designed device to work with anything other then windows.

Granted, OTHER media players have accessable databases. but I'v never seen anyone have success with the zune.

I will keep this thread watched incase anyone has any success with it. MY personal zune got washed and no longer works. I'm considering taking it apart and bring it back to life. but it doesnt even look possible without using duct-tape to put it back together with.
