    I have the same stupid problem!
    I have all these songs like thousands and it will only give me like half!
    I'm thinking maybe if i just start all over again, delete everything
    off my zune and start over. Idk, i'll let you know if it works.

Try telling the Zune software where your music is and using that software to upload to the zune. It WILL NOT upload from Windows Media Player at all. That software doesn't even SEE the zune. Good luck and enjoy the fabulous world of Microsoft Media. :)

Mp3 format is OK - I would reformat the player inside of Windows Media Player and try again.

The songs are most likely in the wrong format, or do not have transfer right - see my "tips & tricks" in my profile on song formats (2-part article)

I can't upload songs


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player using the USB cable. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable to the MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player will create a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

How to reset your zune fireware


If your zune (4, 8, 16, 80, or 120 gig) is starting to freeze more and more and wont load up all the way and uv tried reseting it multiple times and it still dose the same thing? i will tell you how to fix that sittuation.

first of i will have to warn you in doing this you are deleting EVERYTHING from your zune. remember you are at your own risk in doing this and i sugjest that you read the whole thing befor attempting to reset anything
if you are desperate or interested lets beging

step 1. wait for your zune to turn on wile its on you reset you zune
(hold the back button wile holding up on the touchpad)

step 2. once it starts to load the fireware (the screen will show the zune symbal and a loading bar at the bottom of the screen) you must hold the back botton, the senter of the touch pad and the play button. remember to hold all 3 of the buttons once the zune icon apears on your zune.
hold it until a speane apears that says "3 please wait" when that screen apears you can let go of the buttons.

step3 the zune will tehn say to open up zune program and plug your zune into your computer

tip. it is best to have the most updated zune software you can have on there. vistas may not ba able to have the MOST up todate software because of issues with the software on vista and zune 4.0

once you plug it in it will automatically start to download the zune fireware onto you zune. when it has finished uploading the fireware just go threw the zune steps. at this point you pretty much have a new zune. meaning you need to link it to your account on zune and name you zune and the most obvoius you need to re-upload your files and things onto you zune.

note you need an internet conection to download the fireware for you zune.

hope this will help you with your zune issues. this also help if you are desperate and forgot your password but note recomended if you have another option.

I download songs onto my computer that I want to ...


I'm assuming you have the Zune software installed. You'll need the software in order to interact with the Zune device, it does not work as a "mass-storage device" like some other media players.
The Zune software will find all your music. Open the software and on the top left make sure you're in the "Collection" and then "Music" category. Then click on the right hand side on the "Songs" tab. You'll see all your songs on your computer. Connect the Zune and wait a few seconds and in the bottom left hand corner of the software you'll see your device connected.
Click on one of the songs and then press "CTRL + A" and all of your songs will be selected. Click and hold and then drag one of the songs to the little icon of your Zune in the bottom left and then all of your music will sync to the device.
Hope this helps.

I have a 30 gb zune. Got all the updates loaded, turns on, charges everything works, but the music plays then there's a long pause and starts playing again. this is continuous.


I think you need to scan for virus with a good anti virus, then if possible, format it(but see if you could remove the songs that you already have to avoid the stress of getting them back).

I had a Zune 30gb and all my music is on my comp with the Zune software. I broke my Zune 30gb and bought a Zune 120gb; but, how do I set this new one up with the software so it can get all my songs?


You will have to re-sync it. You cannot just upload the "image" of your old Zune. You will have to treat is as if you never had a Zune in the first place. You CAN transfer your Zune's name and tags, but you can't have it automatically upload all of the old songs onto it.

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
