Hey JackStallion,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Microsoft), you can manually adjust the amount of space assigned to the reserve by accessing your Zune's system settings menu. In order to do so however, you will need to first have the Zune software up and running, and the Zune connected to your computer.

Under the "Settings" tab, you will need to click on the "Device" option, and then on "Reserved Space". In this menu there should be a sliding bar that allows you to increase or decrease the amount of memory assigned to both the reserve (inbox) as well as your own content.

I have provided a link to Microsoft's solution for this problem below, and remember that you can always search Microsoft's support center and knowledge database for more information on changing your Zune's settings.

Hope this helps you out.

How do u put the battery in?


Just follow a simple rule to insert batteries into any device. On the back or side panel you would see a slider portion. Move it or slide it to open the space reserved for batteries and insert your batteries with proper polarization.

Hope that helps. If you still face trouble then mention the model make of the device and I will help you further.

How to put music from my laptop to my zune 30gb


Importing Content to Zune Software
Zune software provides several options to import content. By default, Zune software automatically imports content that is downloaded to the following folders:
  • My Music
  • My Videos
  • My Pictures
Zune software monitors these folders for the current user as well as the folders designated for All Users. When content is downloaded to any of these folders, it is automatically imported to the Zune media library.
Zune users can also add a new folder to the list of folders that Zune software monitors, or they can manually drag and drop content from any folder to the Zune media library.

most of the memory that is taken up already are files to put your stuff in (movies, music, pics, etc) and the startup files. if you erase the games (which i'm not sure you can) then you will have about 3.7 gb, which is about 10 songs... i've had my ipod for a long time and still havent filled it up with music... and i have a lot of music. trust me, you have plenty of space.

I recently bought an ipod nano and it says there is 3.16 gb of other on my memory is there a way to free up that space so i can download my purchased songs to my ipod


what is the capacity of the player? also did you already load up some content onto your ipod yet? if you want to save more space, check to see what file types are on your player. for music on an ipod, i believe it only plays mp3 or aac. if you want to save space, convert any mp3 files to aac format. you can find that option under "advanced" and then click on "convert selection to aac". forgot to mention to highlight all of the songs that you want to convert in your library. a nice little short cut if you want to convert all of them is Ctrl+A. hope that helps!

Zune 30 gb space


I'm afraid not, because the zune or any other mp3 player has an operating system which it plays music, if you were to format it would have 30, but DO NOT FORMAT, because if you do, chances are you will lose everything and have to install the operating system for it or send it in to get repaired. I just thought I would let you know that the 1 GB is used for the operating sytem (files, folders, core components)

Hope this helps

Deleting movie when connect to charge


It will delete the stuff because it is monitoring those folders for content. When the content disappears then Zune assumes you no longer want it.

Try this-in the Zune program set it to not autosync. See if that stops it. It worked when I tried it with videos but not when I tried it with music.

Otherwise be prepared to keep all of the music and movies in the folders that Zune monitors.

If space on your computer is an issure, I would suggest adding an external drive.

Philips SA4010 1 gig really only half a gig!


1 Gb player should have around 894Mb or more of free space. The rest is taken up by the directory and firmware files.

Try running the Device Manager software on the product CD and use the repair option.
