Microsoft Zune 30GB

Q: Microsoft Zune 30GB

Well I was in the market Zune Microsoft 30GB for a new mp player as I broke my old Creative Zen MicroPhoto and ended up buying a Zune on ebay they are not actually available for sale in stores in Australia First Microsoft Zune 30GB off I was expecting a much larger box for it to arive in I was kind of suprised that it was as small as it was not that its really small though The layout of the box is kinda neat though Headphones that came with it are pretty good for default earbuds they also are magnetic and have small little clips on the back so you can clip together back to back Nifty and rather handy I have found Video quality is very nice for an mp player I think Although I dont use it for video just music I have watched the little videos that came on it I thought they were very nice quality It has WiFi novelty maybe but not a feature I really care about and think I will ever use Interface looks nice and performs well although I do prefer the interface of my old Zen MicroPhoto I am dissapointed that you cant use the device as a portable hard drive I have read that you can do a couple of changes to your windows registry and it will show up as a portable hard drive But I dont really care about this I have flash drives that are sufficient for my portable storage needs Its not perfect and has no extraordinary features but If you are in the market for a mp player and don t like iPods as I do consider a Zune If anyone has any questions about the Zune I will be happy to help you as best I can nbsp

Preferred Solution: Microsoft Zune 30GB

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.)

Did it come with the new firmware ? When the second generation of Zune players came out, it was officially possible to upgrade old Zune players to the second generation firmware.

I just heard today that MS is going to release a rival to the Ipod. Anyone heard much about it? Sounds like it works on its own version of itunes, does that mean it won't work with windows media player?

A:Microsoft Zune

The Zune is coming out November 14th with a $249.99 price tag for 30 gb of storage. You can pay an optional $14.99 monthly subscription dubbed the Zune pass that gives you access to "millions of songs". You can also buy individual tracks for 79 microsoft points.

Link to press release with more information including how much the accessories will cost.

Well i'm not really sure if thiis is the right place to ask but has any1 bought or know someone who has a zune? im thinkin about gettin 1 and am not really sure if they got all the bug worked outta them yet, cuz i heard that they don't work as a hdd yet but they are workin on it. got any suggestions?

A:Microsoft Zune

Yeah, I bought one the same day they came out. I was looking at an iPod. Some friends have had problems with them so I decided to check out the Zune. It can not be used as a HDD at this time as you already know.

Funny thing is, or I found it amusing at least, is that right out of the box it requires a firmware update! Looks like something sooooo new, MS would have already done this before release. The update only takes a few minutes, no biggy really. BUGS???I have not encountered anything strage operationally.

One thing(s) to consider.....the iPod's I believe have adjustable EQ's where the ZUNE only has presets to choose from. The ear buds that come with it really dont sound that me at least. It is ONLY compatable with XP, forget about using 2000. I had to upgrade my laptop to XP to use the Zune, didnt realize this at purchase. Not compatible with Vista of yet anyways. You will need to buy a DVD converter to copy movies to the Zune. Or try and find a free one....they dont exist believe me. (my problem now is finding one that works well, there are many out there)

The Zune software you DL on your PC is very easy to use. The screen itself on the Zune looks very very good. It comes pre-loaded with several music videos and short movie clips. The Zune syncs easy with the PC, no problems at far....remember this is by MS!

So far I am happy with mine....I have already DL'd around 300 songs on it. You can search your music by band, genre, song etc. Storing pictures on it is very similiar. So far I would recommend you buying one!

When I upgraded to windows 8, I kept my music on an external hard drive. I opened up microsoft zune to import my music and it popped up with error code C00D0BBE: DRM could not be used. I looked for a fix, but the fix is dependent on windows media player, which windows 8 does not have. I can refresh the licenses, but it won't do any good if I don't have windows media player or the windows DRM component. Can anyone help me?

Does the device show up as a usable device in Settings > Account after opening Zune and logging in? If not, your problem is larger than playing music.

Hi, I really didn't know where to post this, but does anyone know if the new Microsoft Zune MP3 player supports Asian text? The VAST majority of my music contains some sort of Asian text, be it Chinese or Korean. It would be a real kick in the nickers if I couldn't read the titles of my... 3,000+ songs.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

I m not sure if this is against the rules on here but do any of you own a Microsoft Zune the nd generation gb First of all I love the player and would own another one in a heart beat maybe get the HD models But the question is does anyone have the same issue where the player freezes on you during playback It is so random but the music freezes up on me With that said it doesn t do it a lot just occasionally and when it does its annoying It will play freeze play the song further then freeze Sounds like a scratched CD Something else I read was something about the clocks They sent me a mailing label to mail it back zune Microsoft because they were going to Microsoft zune replace the hard drive in it The second thing I have going on with the player is that during data sync I get a ton of error codes saying quot problem communicating with the player quot please reconnect and reboot the device Well long story short I have to keep re connecting the usb cable and keep hitting the sync button and eventually all of my music copies to the device What I dislike about the zune is the zune software I believe that there is glitches in the zune software itself its too generic not very user friendly and wishes I could just use Windows Explorer I have another mp player from creative labs the zen extra and its music management program works flawless and its user friendly But I wanted to ask around and see if other people own a zune and had the same issue If so did you get it fixed and what did you do to get it fixed Mine was a refurbished model from ebay paid dollars for it nbsp

I had some problems with Microsoft Zune, it abruptly gave me "Microsoft Zune has encountered an error" message etc, I tried to uninstall it but hit a wall and had many problems. At my wits end I decided to do a system restore and start anew. All hell broke loose then, my Microsoft Security Centre has now renamed both firewall and virus to alerts to "Freedom" and I'm getting messages about how "Freedom" can not launch properly. Zune has gone completely nuts on me and wont even uninstall and sometime on boot up I get nothing but a blue screen background with my mouse cursor. It's all very tedious, help would be appreciated.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

A:1.30GB Taken From RAM :S HELP

HJT logs are for malware removal and should be posted in that forum. But the results will help in solving your problem, though we can't help you remove malware even if we see it there in the process.

What makes you think that something is wrong with your RAM in the first place? Memory is well managed by Windows and there is no need to be watching its usage.

Uninstalling programs will not change the RAM usage one bit even if you uninstall every program on the machine. If they are not running, they are using no RAM.

I ran into an issue reformatting my 30gb drive after using GetDataBack to recover data from the drive. Partition Magic sees it as 8gb accessible, Disk Management sees it as 7.8gb inaccessible. The BIOS sees it as 30gb and the PM8 DOS boot floppy sees it as 30gb. (8gb and 21gb) I formatted the 21gb as the 8gb was already formatted with the PM8 Windows. I booted back to windows but it still says 7.8gb in Disk Management but now says 8gb and 21gb in PM8 Windows. They are accessible in PM8 but not through windows. I have SP4 on board and all other updates. I know there is a solution for this but itís escaping me. Anyone out there to jog my memory about this?

Hi im planning to buy 30GB SSD for my PC which will of course work as a OS drive. I'm looking for a drive that should be reasonable in price and its performance. Here in my city i can find Kingston, Corsair and Intel SSD's but don't know if i can find 30GB capacity coz mostly 60GB and above are available. Also let me know if there are any reliable Websites that accept and ship orders internationally with reasonble shipping rates. I think getting a SSD in a courier wont be a problem as SSD's are completely shock proof so please give me suggestions.

P.S. Let me know if there are any offers and discounts going on any website coz i just saw a video on youtube where a guy bought Corsair Force GT 90GB SSD for just $100 on offer

A:30GB SSD Suggestions!

I would honestly go for at least 60gb. Windows 7 takes up quite a bit of space and you'll probably want to put a couple applications on there as well. I got a 120gb for my first SSD and I've used up at least 60gb. Although I did put a couple big applications on it like Photoshop, but I used well over 30gb before that.

So I decided I am going to completely restart with a fresh install of Win 8 but the install ended up being nearly 30GB. That is without any programs installed yet, essentially a brand spanking new install.

My install was the upgrade option, over Win 7, and if I remember correctly, I chose to completely wipe out the old OS.

I did see a win.old folder, but have deleted it, or as much as Win 8 will let me. The properties of the win.old folder now says the size of the folder is 0 MB, however, the install is still around 30 GB.

What is the typical size of a 64bit Win 8 install supposed to be? Are there some hidden or left over files that can be deleted?

Yes, Windows 7 only needs a minimum of 16GB for it's installation. The rest of the space is for your installed programs and files, so it will depend on much you plan on installing afterwards to.

Why? Not only would it probably take hours, but why? Most audio and video files are already compressed, and a rar file containing them may actually be larger than the original size. Try a few of them to see what I mean.

Just got a new Maxtor 30 gig DiamondMax +40 to replace a rather ancient Seagate 6.4. Will use the new drive as boot drive after transferring old drive contents to new, running Win98.

Aside from the self-evident advantage in running scandisk and defragging smaller partitions, is there really any tangible advantage to splitting up the new drive into 2 or more partitions? I have no plan to run any other OS, so unless there's a concrete reason to partition, am inclined to leave it alone.

All input will be appreciated.

A:Why partition new 30GB drive?

How about some day you have a system crash and need to format and reload the O/S on the c:\ drive. If all your important data is stored on the partition D:\ the format will not destroy your saved data.

I want to make the move to SSD on my notebook. However, I am researching and seeing that a 30GB SSD may be to small for Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium especially with future windows updates. I am trying to reduce my current Windows 7 64 install on my original 320GB drive to see how small of a footprint I can accomplish, but I end up only reducing the install to 32GB after all the tips I've read out there.

I have uninstalled everything I can think of and turned of system restore. Any other tips and/or advice is much appreciated. Thank you!

You could use a program like VLite to remove additional Windows components, but I would think 30GB is still too small.

I have a HP Vectra VL Series 4 5/133 with a 2GB hard drive that I am trying to upgrade to a 30GB drive. I have copied all my data and the new drive works on another PC, but it is not recognized in my HP system. I have gone to the HP site and downloaded and installed the latest BIOS, but my new drive is still not recognized.

-1x Alienware laptop bought rather impulsively with regrettably little research and money (bought on finance)
-Alienware laptop has 500GB HDD and a 30GB SSD
-Alienware laptop is running Windows Home Premium x64
-Is there any way I can run/boot windows from the SSD or did I just waste much money on nothing?

and you don't think I can run/boot windows from the SSD;

-What is a good use for a 30GB SSD?

Any help or input is welcomed and much appreciated,


A:Can I boot from a 30GB SSD or did I just waste my money?

I wouldn't try installing 7 to the 30 gig SSD, too small IMHO. It's likely already in use as a cache drive to speed up loading frequently used files. Similar to a hybrid SSD/HDD.

I have a ipod video 30gb - an early type/ well out of warranty- it has behaved perfectly up until now.

The problem is that all the functions work fine but when i have selected a track and clicked play the icon changes from pause to play but there is no sound and the counter does not count- the track doesn't play. (also in the music quiz game there is no sound but the rest of the game functions are fine) I have done the basic reset (hold play and select until it goes dark and restarts) and a restore from itunes- does anyone know the button combination needed for the next level of recovery? or have any other ideas?

My ipod has sentimental value so don't really want to have to scrap it.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Make sure your ipod is set to manually manage your library in itunes on the new computer.
start itunes
connect ipod
select edit > preferences
select the ipod tab in the dialog box
make sure the radio button is set to manually manage.

You will have to manually eject your ipod before disconnecting your ipod from the computer.
it is very important that you use itunes to eject your ipod, do not unplug it without ejecting or you could corrupt your ipod and have to reformat it. Also never use the safe remove hardware feature of windows.

Hope this works

Hello guys,

I have a problem with my Windows 7 folder. It is constantly getting bigger, and by now it's about 33GB.
I checked it with WinDirStat and it showed, that biggest folders are Installer (12GB) and winsxs (9.3GB)

Tried running Disk Cleanup, but after running it as an administrator, it doesn't even show me the option "Windows update cleanup", which could help me a lot. I have the update KB2852386, tried to reinstall it, but this didn't help. Also tried running cleanup through cmd, but after showing all the options, it didn't actually clean old updates.

As I understand, the problem is about OS not being able to delete it's outdated files, am I right?
I'm using 64GB SSD drive, and windows is already taking about 60% of it's space.

Thanks for any help

When you ran Disk Cleanup, after it scans C it presents the disk cleanup window showing you the various categories of detritus it can delete.

In the lower-left corner of that window, did you see a button labeled "clean up system files"? If you push that, it should then present the additional items relating to Windows updates that are eligible for removal. From this point forward, I believe you won't see that button again, as the Windows Update Cleanup category will now always be presented on the original dialog window.

So, did you not notice that button? Or is it not there at all (implying you've already enabled that feature previously), and you do see the Windows Update Cleanup category listed but there is 0 storage related to it that can be deleted?

HI guys,

My windows folder is getting bigger and now is 31 GB.
I ran CCLEANER and I did disc cleanup (+cleanup system files).

The folder "winsx" is taking 11.9 GB. I dont know if that should be that way.

What should I do?


A:Windows folder taking more than 30GB space


My Windows folder is 28.6 GB and the winsxs is 9.7 GB.
My Windows 7 x64 system was installed on January 27, 2013 and the sizes have been relatively stable since then.

Therefore, depending on the programs you have installed, I think your folder sizes are normal.

One thing you will find is most of what is reported in winsxs is not really located there but hard links (that take up no space) to other locations. In my case, only about 2 GB or so are real files.

See this

I have a 30gb drive to use as a backup storage device but am unable to address it. It was originally used as a TiVo VCR system drive (with a Linux type OS I believe) but Windows doesn't want to see it. So I have tried to low level format with FDISK by setting it as a master drive in a spare Dell system and booting that system with DOS 6.2. However FDISK states "No fixed disks present". Rebooting the system and accessing the Boot Device Menu and running IDE Drive Diagnostics identifies the drive as "Drive 0: Quantum FIREBALLlct15 30 - Pass" and on rebooting "Error auto-sensing primary hard disk drive0"
In System Setup drive configuration the drive is correctly identified with drive type set to Auto, but the capacity is set as 0 MB and is not accessible.
Any ideas how to regain auto-sensing this drive would be much appreciated.

A:Reusing a Quantum Fireball lct15 30GB drive

Depending on the spare dell computer, you probably have to set the Hard Drive Jumpers to Cable Select and be sure it is located ont the end of the IDE cable furthest from the motherboard. I have 3 Older Dell Dimensions and if the HDDs are not set to Cable select they will not recognize the drives at all.

There is another thing, the Quantum Drive is a very old drive that is no longer manufactured, Quantum was bought by Maxtor, then Maxtor was bought out by Seagate. It is possible that the drive has just died.

A:Running Disk Defragmenter has freed up over 30GB of free space!

I have not yet had any replies to my post so I thought I would add some further information. Before running Windows defrag' I performed a disc cleanup. This did not clear many files as I regularly use [COLOR=blue!important]CCleaner[/COLOR] to clear my temporary files, internet history and cookies etc. However, I am careful never to use the Registry part of CCleaner as I have been advised before not to use it.

Someone on another forum suggested that the increase in free space I experienced could be due to the fact that, because I had so little free space left on my hard drive before I commenced the defrag, the Windows defrag unintentionally caused restore points to be deleted. Do you think this is the likely cause for my dramatic increase in free space?

Why does Windows require a certain percentage of free space to function? And, does the amount of free space required vary depending on what version of the operating system one is running? For example, does Windows 8 require the same percentage of free space as Vista?

A:Running Disk Defragmenter has freed up over 30GB of free space!

Are you sure it was the disk defragmenter that you ran, and not the disk cleanup tool?
All defragmenting, (aka 'defragging') does is to re-organise your files into contiguous blocks so they can be loaded faster.  That's contiguous from a disk drive point of view, so they can be loaded quicker.  As an aside, never run defrag on an SSD: it will not improve matters at all but will waste precious write cycles of your SSD, resulting in it wearing out sooner.
Because defragging only re-organises files, it will not free up disk space.  It will require some space to do its work, resulting in higher disk usage until it has finished.
The only thing I would suggest is running disk cleanup (or another good cleanup tool such as Ccleaner) prior to running defrag, as defrag will otherwise waste time re-organising your temporary files as well as your permanent ones.
Freeing up 30GB is a heck of a lot of disk space ... are you sure nothing you need has been removed somehow?  I only ever get that kind of space back if I move a barge full of stuff to another drive or perform maintenance on a large database that has shrunk massively without freeing up the space it occupies.

New kid on the block.

I have a U100 Part Number: PLU10E-00U023EN and would like to upgrade to a 60GB HD.
I am looking for a part number for this replacement hard disk.
Also can anyone tell me where I may purchase this in the UK. Retail shop would help. If not, a direct mail address would be appreciated.
I have seen one from OFFTEK for £43.0 Plus VAT, Part Number: KTT3311/1GB.

Then I saw the same part number from Toshiba and it cost over ?100.
Maybe someone can tell me where I could get the upgrade done near Leicester.

Q: Zune?

hi, I am trying to install zune on my buddies computer, but it doesn't recognize the device. I have tried following directions from microsoft, which were to rename the catroot file, but it tells me, either access is denied or system cannot find the file specified, did the same thing when I tried to rename the Edb.log file
I know his usb ports work, which is how the device is connected to the pc, cause when I plug in my flash drive, it lights up, but it doesn't show the drive, why is this? His cable modem is connected to the usb also.
Help me help him please


This could happen for 3 reasons.
You are using a faulty USB port, hub, or hub cable.
the zune software installation is faulty.
An unsupported driver is installed on the computer.

You should try to get the latest version of the zune software here.

2. Reset the Zune device. To do this, follow these steps:
a. Disconnect the Zune Sync Cable.
b. Set the Hold switch to the unlocked position.
c. Press and hold the Back button as you press the top of the Control Pad.
d. After the device starts, reconnect the sync cable.

Or connect it to another USB port on the PC.

Or, ( gotten from the microsoft site )
Register the Windows Media Device Manager (WMDM) for Zune devices service. To do this, follow these steps: a. a. Click Start, click Run, type regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Zune\zunesp.dll", and then click OK. You receive the following message:
DllRegisterServer in C:\Program Files\Zune\zunesp.dll succeeded.
Note A .dll file is a set of functions that can be executed or data that can be used by a Windows application.
b. Click OK.


Check Device Manager. To do this, follow these steps:a. With the device connected to the computer, click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
b. Expand Portable Devices, and then make sure that a listing for Zune is displayed.
If the Zune device does not appear under Portable Devices, locate and then expand Other Devices. If there is a listing for a USB device, follow the steps that are outlined in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
929487 ( Your Zune device appears as a USB device under Other devices in Device Manager, but the device does not appear in the Zune software
If the Zune device appears in Device Manager with a black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field under Portable Devices, follow the steps that are outlined in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
929279 ( Error message: "The software you are installing for this hardware: Zune has not passed Windows Logo testing to verify its compatibility with Windows XP"
If the Zune device appears as installed and working correctly under Portable Devices, follow the steps that are outlined in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
929357 ( The Zune software does not recognize a Zune device after you install the software and connect the device to a computer
If the Zune device does not appear in Device Manager at all, follow the steps that are outlined in the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
929486 ( Your Zune device does not appear in the Zune software or in Device Manager

If I was you I'd buy the 80 gig... get it off of or something and it's only about 50$ more for 50 more gigs. That's great.

I haven't heard of any specific problems with the 80 gig comparing it to the 30, but the software that comes with the Zune blows.

Q: Zune

Just got a Zune. Probably a stupid question, but do I have to keep all the songs on my PC that are going to be on my Zune? For example, I have a hundred cd's or so, so I was going to put them all on the Zune. Do I have to rip them all and KEEP them all on my PC too? So then when I get a new CD and rip it, and then sync it, will I lose all the music I already put on the Zune since it'll search the folder and find they aren't there?


As I see it, you don't need to keep all your cd tracks on both PC and Zune. When you rip a new CD and sync with your Zune, the sync process will only check to see which tracks on your PC are not on the Zune, not vice versa.

Of course, "the proof is in the pudding" -- without a more informed opinion you'll only know for sure when you try it. To be on the safe side before trying it, back up all those ripped tracks on your PC to a zip folder before deleting the originals. Now rip a new CD that isn't on the Zune, then connect it to the PC and run the sync process. That will answer your question for sure. But you'll still have your backups in the zip folder if I'm wrong!

Anyone know what the deal is and how to fix? Thanks.

A:Zune for Windows 7

Press and hold the Back button while pressing "up" on the control pad.

The Zune will start to reset. Immediately press and hold the Back button and at the same time press "right" on the control pad and the OK button in the center of the Control Pad. Hold these buttons until your Zune device restarts and you receive the message "Clearing contents. Please wait."

When the Home screen appears, the erase is complete, and you can again use the Zune device.
This should also allow you to sync it to another machine.

I accidentally dropped my Zune today. Not a big drop. When I pressed down, it froze and it highlighted both Music and Video. I resetted it but it came with an Error 5 message (the one that says contact support). The worst part is that I live in Australia so i HAVE no support. Am I screwed? I just got it a week or so ago. I decided to do a full reset.

However, how long does it take to rebuild an 80gb hard drive? My thing has been on Please Wait for a long time. Does it have something to do with leaving it connected to my PC? Because I have to leave it connected or else it just turns off since the battery dies.

A:Zune Software

Yes, Zune software will work on Windows 8 for WP7.5 and it works just like it does on Windows 7. If you have a Zune Pass with subscribed music you won't be able to play it in the Music App because the DRM has changed between Zune and XBox Music. However it will still play in Zune...BUT! If you download new music from the Music App it won't play in Zune and you won't be able to sync it to your phone. It's a pretty messy transition.

Obviously everything is supposed to work better when you use Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

First off stop complaining about the Zune and download the version 2.5 software/driver for the Zune, and do make sure you have Service Pack 1 for Vista installed. Complaining about the Zune and Windows Vista won't get you any help. | Zune Software - Download

Once the software is installed hook up the USB sync cable that came with the Zune, and you will be notified that there is a firmware update, which you will want to update too to use the 2.5 software.
