Zune Deleting My Songs

I have updated all the software to latest version

when i plug in my Zune, sometimes it says "Deleting Songs"... WTF ? I had 300 songs, and it decided to delete 30..how do i stop this?

side question - from the collection screen, is the only way to select ALL my songs to shift-click the first and last song from the browse view? Isn't there a way i can choose "Select all" ?

Thanks!

MP3 player -Zune not working


Just reset the Zune by holding the left button and the up portion of the center control continuously until the screen goes blank. Release both and the unit will reboot.

Here's a Youtube showing the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BqqlDwtYbQ

If this doesn't work, contact MS to get a warranty replacement.

Assuming it does work, be sure to check that you have the latest version of the Zune SW as new units are usually several versions old and updating your unit will make it more reliable in my experience.

Zune sync problems


Hey tybaylock,

If your Zune "locks up" while syncing to your computer, there are several different things that you may want to try.

First, I'd suggest making sure that you've got the latest firmware updates for your Zune and software updates for your computer. In some cases, updating programs (including Windows itself) can improve performance and may even eliminate recurring problems such as this.

Second, you may wish to check if the files you are attempting to sync have any errors. Normally the easiest way to check files is to play them using the Zune software while the Zune itself is still connected to your computer. If there are any problems with the file or it is damaged in any way, the software should encounter playback issues and may display an error message. Additionally, you can even check the Zune software itself after a failed sync. You should be able to do this by clicking on "Device" and then "Status." Then if you expand the "Not Added" section, you should be presented with more information why the files could not be added to your Zune.

If neither of these suggestions resolve the issue, you may want to check out the article below for more information. Microsoft appears to have some additional suggestions available in through their online support center on how to solve this problem, as well as step-by-step instructions when necessary.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Zune problem


Download and install the latest zune software from microsoft. Run the new zune software, plug your zune into the computer and it should prompt you to install the latest firmware automatically. This is all that is necessary with the majority of firmware problems.

Zune software will not open


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Zune program deleting songs from device without permission


You can go to device options and tell the software to just let you choose what to sync, it should not auto delete anything after that...

If you sync manually you should have no problems.

I don't understand Microsoft's motive for auto-deletion on this program... but whatever...

Zune charging problems, hardware problems


I had a 30g w/same problem. I installed the Zune software from CD. Plugged the Zune into my USB jack and waited hrs for the full screen battery icon to go away. It never did. Here is what I did to fix it. I left the Zune disconnected until its battery drained and the lcd went dark. In this state, pressing the play/pause button, caused the full screen battery icon to appear briefly before the lcd went dark again. With the Zune disconnected from my xp pc, I ran Windows Update in express mode. I have Windows system restore and auto-update turned off and rarely update my pc, so I also took the opportunity to take a manual system check-point (so I could restore from the check-point if an update trashed my pc). I took and installed all the latest Windows updates. When it was done, I had all the latest security updates and IE 7. At this point I went to http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/zunesoftware/download.htm and downloaded the latest Zune software. I installed the Zune software update. I ran the new Zune software on my PC and found the device tab. NOW I connected the Zune to a USB port on the back of my PC. The full screen battery icon appeared on the Zune but nothing appeared in the Zune software. I left it this way for a few minutes. It occurred to me that I might get more power through the USB port if I turned off my other external USB devices, which I did. Within a few minutes, the Zune FINALLY came to life and a Zune splash screen appeared on the device. The device booted and was FINALLY recognized by the Zune software on my PC. Shortly after that I noticed that it already started synchronizing with my PC music collection. I figured it would charge up and download my entire collection (20gig) so I grabbed some sleep for a few hours. When I returned, the PC was asleep too. Unfortunately, the Zune was not charged and had stopped sync'ing. Not to be discouraged, I woke up the PC, exited the Zune software and left the device charging for an hour or so. When I returned, the device was about 80% charged. I quickly disconnected and played my first music video on the device!!!! I reconnected (the Zune software auto-launched) and left it sync'ing and charging for a while longer. When it was 100% charged, I disconnected and have been using it for a few hours. It was a long painfull road to get this thing setup, but it was WELL WORTH IT! I am already a huge fan of this device. In fact, I'm considering passing this one on to my wife so I can get the 80gig. Hang in there, it's worth it!!!!

PS: one sidebar -- I have noticed that the pc software will only sync about 800 songs in a session. I have simply been restarting the sync to get the next session going. At this point, I am fully synchronized and have 4.5 gig free.
