Preferred Solution: Microsoft Zune

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.)

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 great....to 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 either....as 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 all....so 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!

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

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.

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?

A:Microsoft Zune DRM?

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.

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:Zune?

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.

1.
You should try to get the latest version of the zune software here.
http://www.zune.net/meetzune/software.htm

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.

or

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 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/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 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/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 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/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:

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?
 

A:Zune

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!

Hi All , got a question about WP7.5 . Does Zune software install on windows 8 for the WP7.5. Or can you tell me what feature we are supposed to use with windows phone for sync.
Thanks

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.

If my memory serves me correctly, Zune allows transfer of music (others?) to other zune players... does anyone know what the agreement is about copyrighted music? does anyone have Zune?
 

A:Zune Player

I guess this is a late reply, but since I have a Zune now, you can transfer copyrighted music to other Zunes. You can play them 3 times over teh course of three days. Of course there are ways to get by th---OK i'll stop talking now.

I am trying to sell my Zune and attemting now to erase the contents of it which I haven't even turned on in like 2 years. I installed all of the software and it recognizes the device, but says that there is no content on the device even though there is 27GB of music and pictures. 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.

One thing I can't stand about XP is its ugly task bar and start button.
Luckily Zune Desktop Theme is tolerable, but the orange start button is getting on my nerves!

Royale Noir isn't as reliable as Zune, but it looks about as good...

Does anybody know of other themes (without downloading a skinning software)

OR

Does anybody know how to open up the images that create the theme and edit them in photoshop and replace them??

I've heard people trying resource hacker or something, and I got access to open the bitmaps and edit them and even replace them- but no changes were made, and if I remember correctly- it just used standard (non xp) theme...

Does anybody know a way to edit either the Windows theme or the Zune theme?

It's crazy that there is only Zune and Royale. Only 2? C'mon!!!

A:cant download zune?

If you had the Zune software installed already you should have been able to upgrade the software from within the software itself. You shouldn't have to download the full release.

Are you saving the install file to your PC first and then launching the install after it is downloaded.

Microsoft sold me a Zune (mpg player) and the software disk was included.
Microsoft also sold me Vista in my Compaq (now HP).
But, Vista cannot handle Microsoft's Zune. What's the deal here?
Can Bill Gates be that greedy? The Zune problem is only one of my problems,
there are so many "issues" with Vista, I'd give my first born for good old XP.
Brand new OS and I'm already looking for fixes! Only with Microslop...

A:Zune and Vista

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.net | 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.

So which do you recommend? I am trying to decide between the two. I have iTunes on my computer already with about 20 or so purchased songs so that kind of leans me in that direction. I also have gotten my son a nano for Christmas so it would be keeping a tad more consistant with the iPod but I like a few things about the Zune. I don't want to pay a monthly subscription for music though as I prefer to buy a song once and then have unrestricted access. So if you have a good or bad experience and want to make a recommendation fire away.
 

A:Zune vs iPod

Hey Bruff,
You may want to use the search feature on this site. There are a few threads already about the Zune here. I bought a Zune myself and so far highly recommend it. Keep in mind there are a few things to consider.

1. Only compatible with XP. Nothing prior, and as of now its not compatible with Vista either.
2. The Zune ONLY has preset EQ settings. Nothing adjustable.
3. Little use for the wireless it has at the moment. (Stressing, at the moment)
4. If you transfer a purchased song wirelessly to another Zune. You can only listen to the song I think 3 times. (no biggy for me, I only transfer music from CD's to mine)
5. The ear buds that come with the Zune suck! (recommend buying the Bose ear buds)
6. Its made by Microsoft!
7. You MUST update the firmware upon installing software on PC. (not a big deal either.
8. Must purchase license for converting DVD's to the Zune. (not expensive)

Even with all the things I have listed here. I love mine! Not had a bit of troubles with it. Also you can demo one, they come pre-loaded with 3 movie clips, probably a dozen or more music videos. And a few dozen pictures.

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.

HDD Soaked Zune, was there until it had been sitting in water for at least one day maybe two days I took it out of the bag and let it dry out without taking it apart for lack of the right size Soaked Zune, HDD problems? screwdriver and the fact that i m in Thailand and couldn t find a store that sold the right size one for two or three days Finally tried turning it on but much to my chagrin nothing happened I waited another day or so and then tried plugging it in to the wall charger to see if that would do anything different At first i was very excited when the boot-up screen came on but then i got really worried when what sounded like the HDD started making funky noises and i quickly unplugged it A couple of minutes later i tried the same thing again and the boot screen came on but started faded and quickly disappeared and the HDD noises came back just as fast so i unplugged it and let it sit for a couple more days Just tried plugging it in again last night and as far as i could tell the boot screen didn t show up but the HDD noise was present I ve asked around on a Zune message board but didn t get any definitive answers One guy pointed me towards this wiki on how to save a wet cell phone One of the techniques mentioned in the wiki is soaking it in rubbing alcohol and then giving it a full days minimum to dry out again Since the initial problem i ve picked up a screw driver that allows me to pull it apart and i m thinking about taking out the HDD and soaking that by itself and not the rest of the zune Does anyone have any thoughts or other ideas about what i should try Also if the HDD is shot i can just replace that and the firmware should still be on the player correct Cheers and thanks for any input My apologies if i m slow to respond Laos has internet cafe s but they aren t all that frequent -- and since i left Thailand i have yet to see a computer with more than mb RAM nbsp

I have had a Zune for nearly years now and I love it to pieces I wouldn t Zune Refuses Run. Software to change MP players unless I absolutely had to that being said I would like to strangle whoever built the software for it I m trying to run the software on an HP which is probably my first problem I ve Zune Software Refuses to Run. never had a reliable HP I don t know much about this computer since it s now my own Now for a year the software was running just fine until this morning naturally after my computer has crashed I didn t think to back up my music since I thought I have a Zune I can just pull the music off of it onto the computer Zune Software Refuses to Run. anyway so why waste Zune Software Refuses to Run. a DVDR I go to open the program and the interface doesn t pop up at all It merely comes up with an error that says quot Microsoft Zune has encountered a problem and needs to be shut down quot then gives me the option to send an error report When I click to view the error report it s a very long and incomprehensible string of numbers and letters that make no sense to me or anyone who speaks English I m sure In the Zune forums everyone keeps telling me that this is a DRM related problem but I ve followed all those steps and it s made ABSOLUTELY no difference which I figured it wouldn t since it s not a marketplace problem Now someone on the Zune forums said that they fixed this problem by dowloading the Net framework that being said I already have that on this computer but when I downloaded it to try and quot repair quot it it said I couldn t because it couldn t replace some file since it was being used I could get the actual error again if I need to This is not a dire problem merely more of an annoyance with bad timing anyone have any ideas And do me a favor don t just respond with some quip about Zune s being useless that s not helpful to the situation nbsp

So I get this error message:

Can't access the server. Make sure you're connected to the Internet and that there are no firewalls or proxy servers blocking access to the Zune service, then try again.

I've tried going to all the places I could figure, mainly the "services" areas that would show Zune being accessed. Could someone help me figure out other places that could keep me from accessing this server. I have internet, and can access web pages..I just can't login to my Zune account itself.

Does anyone here who thinks that the Zune Hardware and software will work out? Or will it end up like Microsoft Urge Service and system? I like it but I wish it would play all the formats. Then it would be perfect. What you guys think? Will MS scrap it and work on WMP future versions?

A:Zune Software's Future

I was surprised that the zune software wouldn't install in my build 7100. Looks like an upcoming problem. I'll have to keep a vista computer or ebay my 2 zunes.

Hello,

I have a odd question. Just got someone a Zune and I'm wondering how do I put current mp3's on the device. Let me explain the situation. On this persons network they have a program called "charter music". It's very similar to itunes or any monthly paid service to download music. What this person is doing is legally downloading music to her PC. Once she has the music it comes as a "wma'. Then she converts it to mp3 with a program called "sound taxi". So she doesn't have to worry about it expiring every month and can put them on CD if she choses. When she hooks up her Zune to her laptop. Unless she or I am missing something. There doesnt seem to be a way to add this mp3's to her Zune.

Any direction?

Hi there, I'm going to close this as that program circumvents copy protected media, and we don't support that here, per our forum rules.

I made a few key blunders uninstalling my Zune Software In short I want to Zune problem reinstall reinstall it but the installer says that it is already on my computer Here s the entire story When I first installed the program I accidentally installed Zune reinstall problem the files to my program files Zune reinstall problem folder as in all of the files were just laying there in that folder instead of program files zuneplayer for example So I brazenly thought I could simply cut and paste those files into a new folder Obviously the end result was that the program would not start Well since I was already stupidly shifting files around manually I decided to unistall manually by deleting the zune Zune reinstall problem folder that I just made This is the part where I tried to reinstall it and the installer still thought the program was there So I used add remove programs which was also unsuccessful In addition the program is not listed in the add remove programs list anymore Next I decided that it must be wiped from the registry As you might guess I went in manually and deleting everything zune related This did not work either Next I searched online for some solutions and tried UnZoone without success and also CCleaner with which I deleted all unused registry entries and files and also one system start-up service that remained So I believe that everything zune-related has been completely wiped from my system yet the installer still believes that the software is already installed and automatically quot checks for updates quot and there are none Any thoughts on how to install the zune software excluding a reformat Thanks in advance --thedirkus nbsp

Hopefully someone will please answer my dilemma. I am unable to sync my Media Player music with Zune (protected error). This is outlandish!!! Is there something I might do aside from a hope to be able to return this Zune.
 

A:Zune with Media Player

I have found the answer myself. When burning cd's to Windows Media the Copy Protect must be unclicked; since I did not understand what this actually meant nor did I know this might prevent using my library of music with ANOTHER Microsoft product I have been forced to RE-BURN my music. In doing so, Zune sync's and works fine. Thanks Tech Support Guy but I found the answer without you.

Does anyone know how I can get this software to install on my PC? I am desperate and almost ready to take the Zune back!

A:4.0 Zune software cannot install

i f you have already tried then you probably need to delete any references to Zune on your pc before it will install.
click on my computer then click on your c drive and look for a folder with Zune and delete it. close window.
you should then be able to install it.

Jea007, what other media player programs do you have running? OR, are they just idle waiting to run. Also, what service pack do you have with xp (sp1a,sp2,sp3)? This will help alot.

Hi, one and all....I received a zune 30 gb for Christmas and my computer will not recognize it. I called both the microsoft office, and the zune branch, and was told that I needed to upgrade my windows xp media center edition, version 2002, to at least the 2005 edition. Due to my old age and lack of computer savvy, I haven't had any success with the operation. My questions include the following: What is the proper name for the download that I need?,,,,,Also, when it comes up to either "run" or "save",,,,which do I choose?,,,,,and also, do I simply begin the download operation without un-installing anything?

I have personally use a Zune Converter software that supports many formats ….to name a few like – MOV; Xvid; DivX; FLV; RMVB; RM; WMV; MPEG-4; MPEG-2; MPEG-1; AVI and MPEG. It also has features such as highest conversion speed; enormous functional lists like controlling resolutions of video bit rates; frame rates; audio frequency and audio bitrates and many more to go with.

Hi all,
having ordered a new sound card and speaker set, I've been thinking of gradually upgrading my MP3 collection to FLAC. I also still have a Zune HD, which I wasn't planning on replacing, which doesn't play FLAC. To this end I'd keep a MP3 copy of the flac collection for Zune to sync to the HD.

Now the problem: Windows media player and Zune both look in the same folder for their media library!! So I can't tell WMP to look at the FLAC while having Zune look at the MP3 using the standard music library in windows... Is there a way to have either program look at a different folder than the standard library?

Thanks in advance

A:Add other folder than library to WMP or Zune

Lovely, apparently I couldn't look properly. For anyone who is looking at this for Zune, just below the folder selection there is an option to select different folders for Zune.. -_-'

Zune will encompass PMPs and software applicationsIn what has been one of the worst kept secrets in the industry, Microsoft has finally confirmed the existence of Zune. However, with the confirmation also comes news that there will be multiple players and software products marketed under the name. "Today we confirmed a new music and entertainment project called Zune. Under the Zune brand, we will deliver a family of hardware and software products, the first of which will be available this year," said Microsoft general manager of marketing Chris Stephenson.http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=3450Zune,Zune,Zune "Hummmmm" reminds me of something
