I recently bought a new computer. Rather than re-rip all of my music or move it from computer to computer by flash drive, I thought I would be able to download the Zune software on the new computer and just sync the Zune and all my music would be put on the new computer. Apparently, this isn't how it works? Is there a way to move the music from the Zune to my new computer?

Re: Can't move music from Zune to new computer
No. You cannot take music off your zune and put it on another computer. You will need to copy your music files found under My Documents, My music, zune. put it onto a large flash or external drive. Then install the zune software onto the other computer i havent done so already. Take the files you copied and paste them back into the zune folder on the computer. You might have to reauthenicate music that you have downloaded. Just log in and it should be fine

Put a CD of your favorite music into your computer, and then open your Zune player. Click on the music that you want to copy.
Click on the "Rip" button, and then save your music with any of the
following file extensions: .wma, .wmv, .mp3, .jpg, .mp4, .m4v, .m4a,
.m4b or .mov. The ability to play music in all of these formats is one
of the features that make Zune such a superior digital player.
Plug your Zune player into your computer using a USB cable, and then
the Zune software will automatically import all of your selected music
into the player. Set the "Sync" option to "Default" so that all the
music in your directory will install in your Zune player whenever you
plug it into your computer.
Purchase music online by either buying each song individually (usually
for about 99 cents a song) or buying a membership to a website where
you get unlimited downloads. You automatically get a membership to Zune
Marketplace when you purchase Zune, and you can get unlimited downloads
I hope the above steps will help to solve your problem.
You can download the software at www.zune.net Most likely it will update your Zune the first time you run it. Just follow the directions, it's pretty simple. Any music or video content on your computer will by default upload to the Zune as well. You can rip CDs and load them on the Zune by just popping them in your drive and letting it go by default.
You will probably have to move the music from your blackberry to your computer, then use the Zune software to sync the music to your zune. You'll have to tell the Zune software where to find your music, unless you put the music in the Zune music folder (My Music in "My Documents" is the default).
The 30 Gb Zunes unfortunately suffer from a bug that caused all of them to do this just before the new year. Keep checking the Zune website for them to address the issue. They will hopefully issue a fix soon.
Documentation is available from zune website - use Windows Media Player to delete songs - click on song name and press "delete"; you do not have to keep it in "My Music," but you must manually go in and change the configuration in Windows Media Player to search for the new folder on the external hard drive IF the external is permanently connected to the computer - otherwise, you will not have to alter the configuration
