Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1

Q: Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1

Having failed to be able to update to Windows Phone many times I was using until yesterday on my Lumia LTE A Windows Central message made me think I should try again and I spent the afternoon quot upgrading quot Is it worth it The upgrading 10 8.1 to version player Windows Phone Windows Phone in music MP3 inferior process asserted so saying quot it will be worth the wait quot I'm not so sure My favorite app is the music player Near as I could tell they called that Xbox Music in and In there's a new app called Groove Music Evidently Xbox Music isn't available for Windows I searched in the Store and it wasn't there Groove Music has a new look but apparently I spent maybe minutes Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1 looking it over has very similar functionality The basic stuff Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1 is there My problem with it is the FF and REW functionality when I play my Windows 10 Phone MP3 music player inferior to version in Windows Phone 8.1 MP s More often than not I play hour long MP s If I'm using Xbox Music and I'm say at and I put my finger on and hold the gt icon it started to FF at a very modest rate but as long as I keep my finger on the icon the rate gradually increases I LOVE that functionality It does the same thing with the lt REW function In Groove Music I'm stuck with the one slow rate That sucks It's way harder to move to where I want to go in my hour MP s I searched for other music players in the Store but the two I tried were laughably awful same thing when I was running Windows Phone x I had some issues with Xbox Music and hoped there was a better MP player but couldn't find anything worth a damn from my point of view One of my Sansa M players the version firmware version -- there are two distinct hardware firmware sets supports accelerating FF REW but the algorithm sucks it accelerates way too fast Xbox Music though got that right it's perfect Last night I posted feedback to MS about Windows on the issue had to choose Feature or Problem could have said either I chose Feature Who knows if they will do anything about it I'm actually thinking I may use my old Nokia Lumia running Windows Phone for MP music using Xbox Music Sucks because I won't have data on it unless I pay for a nd plan

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Our school uses proxy that requires username/password authentication to connect on Wifi. Good thing is Windows Phone 8.1 has option to turn proxy on/off and sign in to proxy. The problem is after setting up the network connecting to it, my apps still can't
connect to the network (some apps for example are Facebook app, Skype, other 3rd party apps). The IE and Windows App Store can connect to the network though. I am currently looking for 3rd party app that can provide global proxy authentication so I can connect
my apps to the internet but I can't one.

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.

A:Wireless music transfer to Windows Phone

There are quite a few apps in the Windows Phone Store. And there are also nice apps for music. My favorite is this one. It is a French site but has music from all over the world.

Btw: this is my phone. For the price you cannot beat it and it has all the functions I would ever need.

Every time I try to import music to my library, I get a loading pop-up that says "working" as if the music is importing, then the box disappears and nothing happens (Drag and drop music to library). If I try to use the add to library feature within wmp, I add the folder I want and no files are imported, nothing happens, not even a "working" pop-up as compared to the other method I tried. No music is currently in my library at all. I can still listen to music if I open the files but obviously this is much less convenient than using the library.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Try this method to "jumpstart" the bridge between mother and daughter boards: 1520.3 airplane mode stuck Look here for how replacing the daughterboard corrects the issue: Lumia 1520 stuck in airplane mode?

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.

I used an official Digital River ISO to create an install disc of Home Premium and validated the original OEM copy's key.

I need to use XP Mode and that is available only for Prof and Ultimate. I was wondering if I can replicate the ISO process and have the key of Ultimate validated by MS, so that I can switch to it.

When I validated the key by phone it used the running the version of W7 to which the key belonged. I am wondering if I can validate the other key even though I do not yet run that version. If not, is there another way to activate while that version is not running?

Thanks.

A:Is activation of W7 via phone possible for a not running version?

You can use Anytime Upgrade to install the Upgrade key you purchase (Anytime Upgrade, full Upgrade, or Full Retail license) - you will need internet access, as it checks validation during the process.

You cannot activate a Key that is not in use.

You do not state if this is Mobile or Landline.

Take the phone to a store and have them run a diagnostic on the phone. May need to be reprogrammed.

I am required to use this service called Abtran to schedule something. They charge $2.48 a minute for the phone call using an 800 or 900 number. Can I use PC to phone using their number, to get free or very low rates? I think I have a PC microphone or headset laying around somewhere. Will it work on dial-up? I don't have high speed Internet.

My sound card should work fine, and I have good speakers

What makes you think it is the activation? Did you go click on "Start Button", right click on "Computer" and left click on "Properties"?

Is your phone completely up to date ? Do you have the 8.1 update on your phone ?

I only have the Lumia 520, I have no problems with this on my 8.1 Update 1 Asus Notebook, I've just plugged it in so of course it's charging, usually charge through the mains adapter so very rarely plug it into the computer as everything can be done from the phone.

Again the more information you give, the easier it is for people to help you, so can you sign up and give a bit more info, like what version/build of 10 are you running?
What apps, is it all of them or just a few.
Have you updated the apps, go to the store, click on the burger menu and choose "Downloads and Updates" and try check for updates.

Hi all,

I have a problem with a calendar sync between my new laptop with Windows 8.1 and my Lumia with Windows Phone 8. Ironic right? Anyhow, on my phone I use my live.com account for calendar. With my old outlook it worked quite good. It was syncing with cable
plugging and it was quite instantly.

Now, I set up my live.com account on my laptop and calendar picked up all event like on my phone. BUT, since then every entry I put in my phone or laptop calendar are not syncing. I am using live.com accounts on both. I figured how to sync gmail on my old
outlook so it works on Windows Phone but I still created live.com account because of these compatibility issues.


Anyone knows how to get them to sync these new entries?

I am using Windows 8 Release Preview on my desktop. At present the Windows marketplace has a very limited quantity of apps. I also saw the Windows phone marketplace and it has a lot of apps. I read in the news that it has more than 100000 apps presently. I think it a possibility that when the final version of Windows 8 releases we could also have the opportunity of using Windows Phone apps from the Windows marketplace. Since they too are metro so there is some possibility. What you think about that? Is that a possibility?

A:Would Windows 8 (final) support Windows Phone apps?

I hope so but I heard that the phone apps and the metro apps are in different coding language so that might not work out. Someone else might know better. I really wish that windows phone apps will work on windows 8 though for metro since that would mean a much easier transition if their marketplace is already growing.

A:Windows phone or not?

lumia 640 series is a year old now, and you shuld expect another year of support w.r.t. os updates. Lumia 640 is a good device and is very stable on current windwos 10 mobile build.
Microsoft has closed its shop on the hardware business but will continue to develop windows 10 mobile. so in coming months we should see new windows 10 devices from OEMs as recently alcatel is going to release idol 4s on November 10. so definitely not an end for windows phone.
the only reason why you should stay with android imo will be because of the vast amount of app availability for any purpose. You will literally feel the emptiness in windows store once you switch platforms and you should be aware of that. it is not just a few apps but many major apps that are still not available on windows mobile. You did mention you are not a power user but even productive like banking etc apps are missing from windows mobile.
My opinion: stay on with android for another 6 months, till there is a healthy number of new devices with updated hardware running windows 10 by OEMs because now you have a very limited narrow choice to make.

I was looking to buy a windows phone and I was looking for some advice as to which windows phone I should buy. My network provider is Verizon and should I buy a phone with window phone 8.1 or windows phone 10. I've been hearing a lot of problems about windows 10.

I have been looking around the web for info on what device win 8 is going on because I'm super excited about going with a win 8.

From my research it's going to be lumia 910 and Nokia has one month lead way of sale before going to other manafactures.

A:Windows Phone 8

There are as of official announcement, four hardware builders: Nokia, HTC, ZTE, and some other Chinese company. HTC is planning a three tiered Windows Phone for the lower end, mid range, and high end.

I personally will be waiting for the Nokia Lumia PureView Windows Phone 8. WOW. The camera on that sucker will literally beat out EVERY point and shoot digital camera, EVERY camera on any phone, and even give some SLR cameras a run for their money. Best of all, Windows Phone 8!

Nokia is GREAT phone builder, before there was apple and Samsung, there was a Nokia and there will be a Nokia.

We have some "Show Us" threads on the forum, so I thought I'd start one on the Windows phone.

Just upgraded my Nokia Lumia 1520 to 8.1 via Developers Preview program. WP8.1 is quite a big step from WP8. Lots of added features. More categories in settings for personalization & management, personal assistant Cortana, an Action Center, and a big overhaul of IE.

One of the personalization features is to be able to add a pic the Start Screen background which causes some tile to go transparent. I did a little tile shuffling and took a screenshot. The Start Screen is asking "How do you like me now?!!"

A:Show Us Your Windows Phone

Nice one Tony!
Wish I could post it! I'm stuck in 'Droidland' with my mobile devices for the time being!
We got hp ElitePad's at work... Niiiccce!!!

(Maybe with my tax refund! (new fridge or a Windows toy??? Hmmm, that's a tuffie!))
