Preferred Solution: How can I listen to my music in xbox music on another phone

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

First, I wanted to listen to a clip on Amazon and I clicked "listen" for Windows Media Player and then another time for Real Player, since I have BOTH. All it would do was save it to my computer (entitled "hurl") and then I couldn't open it. It didn't even give the option of opening it--that was "grayed out."

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music. I just want to get a song occasionally.

Any help will be appreciated.

Searched the tutorial-collection from my problem, but couldn't find one there. So...

I've got my music-collection in a WD World Edition (White Light) -network drive. The path to the music is:

Network\MYBOOKWORLD\Public\Shared Music

The network drive also carries my photos and my videos.

I understand that I can make symbolic link from that location to the Music -library and that way the music should appear in the the Xbox Music -metro app, because I'd really like to use that app (and other metro apps for photo and video).

The problem is that I don't know how to make that symbolic link. I honestely don't even know wheather it works in W8 or only W7.

Can someone confirm this could be done similar way you can make it happen with SD-card.

A:Help! Music from network drive to Xbox Music App

Hi MSalo,

To create a symbolic link in windows follow these steps,

1. Go to your Music library and create a sub folder (Can be called anything)
2. Right click on the folder and select Include in Library and then select Music
3. Now delete this sub folder you have just created in the Music folder
4. Open uo command prompt and run as an administrator
5. At the command prompt type the following ...

mklink /d c:\Users\<Username>\Music\<Sub Folder Name> \\Network\MYBOOKWORLD\Public\Shared

6. Press Enter, you should get a message advising the link has been created and that's it

You can repeat this for all libraries you have setup in Windows

So I searched around for a bit and found a few discussions about the Music app crashing but none appear to be the problem I'm having I can open the app and do most things in Music Xbox when crashes app music playing it Search navigate around I can even play music most of the time except for one notable exception When you click on an artist or album the app opens a smaller window in the middle of the app where you can usually Xbox Music app crashes when playing music play the song along with a few other options like Play Top Songs or Explore Artist Whenever I click play from this window the app suddenly closes This does not happen with music that I have files locally on my hard drive it only happens with streaming music I can get streaming music to play as long as I can find a play button elsewhere in the app aside from this window that pops up in the middle of the screen But if a song is already playing I can skip back and forth and navigate around the app I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app and this fixes it for a little while but it eventually begins happening again It crashes with zero other apps or programs running I have AVG antivirus running but I disabled that for a while and it still crashes I noticed that when it does crash the Music app doesn't close completely as it's still listed along with other running apps if I hover in the upper left corner and drag my mouse down to view all running apps Thoughts

Hi, I am new to the forum and Windows 8.

I have a question regarding a new build I have. I am running windows 8 off of a SSD, and have a new HDD that I bought for everything else. I recently transferred my music over from an external HD and now when I attempt to find them in my Xbox app I can't seem to select that drive. It only sees my SSD, and I do not want to install music on that

How do I make it so my apps pull files right from that drive?

Thanks in advance.

The xbox music app for Windows 8 will not show any of the music in my library. I have narrowed it down to the fact the all my music on a 2nd hard drive.

If I move a couple of songs to the c drive and add that folder to my library, they will show up. However nothing in my library that is on the 2nd hard drive will show up

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

A:Xbox Music App with music on 2nd drive

Make sure your index is searching and indexing those folders on the second drive - Xbox music (and videos, for that matter) only see media that has been indexed by search. You may want to look at the search/indexing options in the control panel to make sure the folders containing your media are being indexed - if they are, give the index a rebuild. That can fix things (I find that on my tablet sometimes).

What would be something to check, if you can listen to cds but not music online. Whether we open windows media player, or browse to a favorite radio station's site to listen live, we can't listen. There are no errors, it connects, buffers and looks to be playing, but there's no sound. The speakers are on and work, because we can stop and listen to a cd. I don't see any mute that is on.

Anyone have any ideas??

OS Windows XP Pro. I copied music from an old computer and pasted it on the new computer for my son. As long as the flash drive is inserted, he can listen to the music. (Even though the flash drive is empty.) When the flash drive is removed and he tries to listen to the music it is prompting him to connect to the internet, and he has no internet. We took the flash drive to my house with 3 albums on it, they showed up with the same prompt to connect to the internet, even with the flash drive inserted. What might we be doing wrong? The files are "wma" files.

Thanks, Peggy

Sometimes if you have clicked on Media Guide, I've found it seems

But the new computer should not be accessing the flash drive if the music

Hey guys, I am going on holiday in early June and am looking for a way to listen to music while I'm in the pool as I plan to spend a lot of time doing so.
The way I can see it is that I have two options:

Buy a waterproof case and waterproof headphones
buy a waterproof MP3 player all-in-one.
Obviously each option has it's flaws - otherwise I wouldn't be there.
Even if I buy a waterproof case how can I be sure that even though there is a waterproof case, where it contacts with waterproof earphones will be waterproof as 'waterproof' to some sellers just means rain-proof.
The problem with the all in ones like the Sony Waterproof Walkman is that they are very expensive for very little space, the 4GB alone being 50 and 8GB is 80.

Does anyone have experience in the matter, anything they can recommend, preferably I'd like to use my phone in a case for my 32GB MicroSD card, but whatever works I guess.

Cheers guys.

A:PC freezes but I can use Firefox and listen to music

Several things of note. First it is absolutely essential that you update to Service Pack 3 because come July 10th XP with Service Pack 2 will no longer be supported. You need some serious updating and it may be a central reason you are experiencing issues..

Second, before you do the above there is a very strong possibility you are still infected. Go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the 8 Step sticky. Follow it step by step -- don't skip any of the steps. When you finish post on that forum with the required logs attached.

Third, since you can boot into Safe Mode there is a good chance your issue is driver related, but unless the above isn't attempted you won't be able to diagnose properly.

Fourth, as a side note, you might want to consider another gig of RAM if your motherboard is designed to do so. XP and two gigs is a good combination.

Fifth, you mention both Avira and Avast. Are both of these installed? Please tell us all the security software you have installed and running in real time protection.

Good luck.

So I'm subscribed to Zune music which works fine in Zune player on Windows 7 and on my Windows Phone but in Windows 8 XBox Music doesn't see me having an account. My guess is that Microsoft hasn't cutover Zune services to Xbox Music but am not sure if Zune Music is supposed to work with it for the time being until that cutover (or however it will work). Can someone confirm if this is the case or is Xbox Music actually working for someone with Zune Pass?


A:Xbox Music

Very strange, I updated this thread a couple of days ago and said it was now working but the update is missing.

Anyways, after accessing again my Xbox Music App was able to identify me with my Zune subscription and everything started working. At least I thought. Although it recognized me and I was able to download music from my subscription I could not actually play the music I downloaded or the music I had already downloaded previously (from a mount of my NAS share that already had my music collection).

It was an odd situation because if I downloaded something to my NAS mapped drive it would not play and gave me DRM issues but if I downloaded it local to my laptop it would. The fix ended up being that I had to actually download Zune software and map my Music library to that, once I did that the Xbox Music App could play any music from my NAS share.

I suspect this will (should) all get cleaned up once W8 is released and Zune is finally eliminated which is apparently the plan. If anyone has any success adding a music library to Xbox Music from a NAS device please feel free to add any info.

A:XBox music app not streaming

for me, it was my graphics driver. all the streaming software in the Windows Store is very strict about DRM and HDCP. so if there's a break in the protection along the line, it messes up.

So I have the ATI HD4670 and the "latest" driver was the legacy 12.6 driver. This broke all streaming apps including Xbox Music. I kept all the Catalyst Suite except for the driver. For the driver, I used the default ATI driver that came with Windows.

I heard some people had a similar problem with Nvidia drivers and some driver revisions work better than others.

here's the thread that I talked about it the most. see if it helps:
app dumping me back to the start screen?

Also, what kind of monitor are you using (VGA, HDMI, DVI)? VGA are the least likely to be HDCP compliant. The graphics card and the monitor has to be compliant to have a protected path.

and here's another thread where Netflix failed to run on my VGA monitor but ran fine on my other monitors (which are true DVI-D cables, not DVI-I cables; I have a 3 monitor setup):

A:What are your thoughts on Xbox Music?

For starters, I think the name is terrible. Many who don't own an Xbox are going to think that this isn't intended for them.

I never bought into the whole Zune thing. It royally pissed me off when they abandoned the whole "plays for sure" campaign and released their zune player and software. The fact that their own device had to have a sync style application like iTUnes rather than just being able to use something like Media Player was just ludicrous. I always preferred my Create Labs zen devices where I could drag and drop my music, or sync from Media Player, or Media Monkey if I chose to do so.

As far as music subscriptions go, I'm not really a fan. I've just barely gotten to the point where I am willing to pay for digital music versus buying the physical disc. I've always preferred just buying the CD, ripping it in whatever format I choose and going on my merry way. But I've found with Amazon MP3, that I can save quite a bit of money on my CD's, and also not have to physically store anything. Not to mention, actually finding new CD's in stores is becoming harder and harder.

I guess I would rather own 100 CD's that I listen to over and over again, then have access to 10,000 CD's, many of which I don't listen to at all, or just once.

So, I don't really understand Xbox Music. After a clean install of Windows 8, I opened Xbox Music, clicked on My Music. It showed 106 albums, none of which are mine as far as I can tell. Later I added my music drive to the Music library, but it still shows the same 106 albums. I have over 22,000 songs; none of them show up in Xbox Music. Very confusing.

This is very strange. Recently had to refresh the computer to factory default settings. Since then have been unable to access Xbox to play the music I've stored or the radio. I get a message asking if I've been travelling recently and only able to use this facility for 2 weeks ? Another message asks me to choose an account in my region . When I restored the computer to factory settings I think I may have chosen the wrong location country. Does anyone know how to change the location setting. I have even tried to restore the computer back to factory defaults but it won't even let me do that now . Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi guys Ive just bought a new desktop PC with windows Ive had a mac book since they came out pretty much so im well out of the loop with windows I have a couple of queries and wondered if anyone can help I would like to back up Windows. to New some Xbox Music Need and with help set up a music library similar to iTunes to put all my CDs on so I can listen to them on shuffle while working I have looked at the Xbox Music program but when I put the CD in and go to the CD drive E where the music is I keep getting an error message saying 'This location can't be included because it can't be indexed' How do I get New to Windows. Need some help with Xbox Music and back up round this or is there a different program I need to New to Windows. Need some help with Xbox Music and back up be using Also I had an apple time capsule which was brilliant for a back up of all my files photos etc Is there an equivalent device for windows Would appreciate any help on these if poss Thanks

A:New to Windows. Need some help with Xbox Music and back up

Try using windows media player. you rip your CD's with it(WMA files) then just do a search with the music app, although I believe it will find it itself. Personally I prefer using windows media player to the music app because it has more tweak option like a EQ, SRS sound Bass boost
The Music app is just a basic music player, but if you upload your music files to OneDrive you can play them on all your sync'd devices (home PC, work PC, smart phone, tablet....etc)

Which player app do you use? but they do not do the app justice - it has some very nice animations that make using it quite fun The good thing is that it displays artists tags albums selected album and optionally the current playlist on one page So I do not constantly have to switch back and forward between pages like in Xbox Music I might even use it on my desktop to replace Winamp switching between Winamp and Windows Explorer is also quite annoying Ah FLAC is also supported which is a nice addition http apps microsoft com windows ap c- e f Do you have any other recommendations I could not find many music players in the store Most of them are either crappy or they only play cloud music I want to play my own collection instead

I have Vista Ultimate, Wired NIC, Linksys WAG354G Router, Xbox 360 Wired.
I can use Media Center on the xbox and it shows all the artists/albums etc fine. The problem is when I click the Xbox Guide button, goto Select Music > Computer and it can connect to my computer but in the right hand pane where it should show artists and albums it says no Artist Found. If I press 'Y' (Play All Music on computer) I get error code 04-80070103.

This is becoming stupid.

I have installed a Plantonics IP phone and then installed Media Player 10 - in that order.

But now I get no sound from the Media Player through the speakers, it all comes through the headset. However, I do get the PC noises (error signals, prompts) through the speakers.

I have been through Control Panel > Sound and Audio but I cannot even see Media Player there, rather just the option of the headset or Ali Audio Wave (whatever that is)

I have also looked through the options of the headset but to no avail.

What am I missing?

Many thanks.

Hi there!

I'm currently considering getting a Windows Phone 8 (in place of my Galaxy S3) because i heard good things about it like build quality, great battery life (most of them anyway), smooth & very easy to use interface and amazing cameras.

I have been an Android user for more than 4 years now and the good thing about the Android OS is the openness, customization and flexibility of it.

I like listening to my music on my daily commute and when travelling. But what i want to ask is: Is there a way or an app that will enable to me hassle-free wireless transfer of music files (or photos) from my PC to my Windows Phone 8?

I mostly have .mp3 and some Flac files.

Any advice guys?

Please help. Thanks.

What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

Normally, you would just drag them (copy, not move) with the mouse--from the external drive to F:Music and Videos. Can't you do that? But I may be misunderstanding you.


First I would decide how many partitions you ultimately want to end up with on your internal drive.

You need the one named system

You need C

You don't need the others.

Plan 1: put all of your personal files on C and subdivide C with a folder structure: Music, Pictures, Video, Work, whatever suits you. 2 total partitions.

Plan 2: put only Windows and programs on C, and put all data on D. Subdivide D with a similar folder structure. 3 total partitions.

Plan 3: Put Windows on C. Use several different data partitions D, E, F, and so on. One for each data type (music, video, pictures, etc). 4 or more total partitions.

I would lean toward plan 2. You seem to have chosen plan 3.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each of those 3 plans. Plan 3 works, but having a bunch of partitions can be wasteful because you can never anticipate the proper size and growth rate of the data type on a partition.

Your pictures partition is already 80% full.

If you know for sure that you want to stay with those particular partitions, you should be able to use that tool to resize them.

Or you could delete all but system and C, then shrink C to maybe 80, then make new D, E, F, etc.

So you have a lot of control.

If you have everything backed up to the external, I would disconnect it temporarily. That way you can't make an error and foul that drive up accidentally with the tool.

You had best confirm what is on H:backups.

What is supposedly on E:C&E Conn and why that peculiar name?

Report back with your ideas and results of moving those files with a mouse.

I have about 2000 songs on Media Monkey, sorted into playlists, and I also have about 150 songs on Amazon Music. There may be a simple way of adding the Amazon tracks to MM, but I just don't see how it is done. I can't drag and drop, so is there another way? Can anyone help, please?

Hey guys, on my laptop i currently have this issue where my music seems to come up when your in the folder. its in blue writing and has a number in brackets which im presuming is how many files ive got in there or something like that. My computer does not have this and i also wish to remove this from my laptop without having to restore to default folder settings (although that seems to be greyed out to despite me making changes earlier)

Hello MajorFoley,

You should be able to click on View (menu bar) -> Group by -> (none) to change the folder view to what you wanted instead.

File and Folder Arrangement - Group by - Sort by - Arrange by

Hope this helps.

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

Hello everyone! New Windows 8.1 user here.

When i click on a audio file, it automatically opens it with Xbox music. In the past, i have checked open with, and listed windows media player, but somehow it eventually opens up my choices in Xbox music. I think it's a pain in the ass! I don't own a Xbox, nor ever plan on it. I'm not a gamer.
Yet,,in the uninstall feature of control panel, i see no options for uninstall XBox.

Do you have a opinion?( and..i will NEVER purchase music online, so don't mention the convenience of buying new music or movies online.
Thank you

I suppose you are using .MP3 files mostly, somewhere along the line somebody have changed default program for opening them. Find a music file of same type, right click it's properties and you'll be able to change default program to open them with.
