Zune thinks it has 17 Gb of media oon it when there is none!!
Hey, my zune worked fine like a day ago but i just started syncing it with my computer and before I had only 10 Gb of stuff on there, but this time it told me my hard disk was full. I totally erased my hard drive and it still said I have 17 Gb of data on there. I need help if anyone knows a solution?

Re: Zune thinks it has 17 Gb of media oon it when there...
It is trying to synch all the data on your computer that you have indexed to the zune. don't worry about it. windows media player is just screwed up. (no comments MS lovers :-) in other words, it is lying!!! try the system menue on the zune, it will probably say it has no media on it at all.(referr to microsoft website or your manual on how to view the info)

I had a similar problem with my 30GB Zune. The first normal solution is to make sure that the USB port is providing enough power to the Zune to charge it by trying a different port or computer, but since your other Zune charges it is likely not the problem.
Other possibly solutions are performing a hard reset on the Zune (hold back and up until it resets), or allowing the zone to completely discharge and try again. In my case, none of these solutions worked and I was forced to send my Zune in for a new battery, which Microsoft was willing to replace for free.
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).
hey! well i think i can help with this product.. i had the same one and what happened was that the USB port was dusty so i blew in it and it worked fine. But, you may want to consider letting the battery die. like let it sit for a day or two then hook it back up to your computer. this may work and it may not.. but it did work for me.
On your computer, you can set your podcasts to sync to your Zune
automatically or one at a time by dragging them to the device icon. SET PODCAST SYNC OPTIONS
In the Zune software, click the device icon, then click Settings, Podcasts.
Choose your podcast sync settings.
What and how you want to sync is completely up to you. You can choose to:
Sync all downloaded episodes.
Sync all unplayed or partially played episodes.
Sync only the first unplayed episode. This setting saves a lot of space—only one episode lives on your Zune at any time.
Don't sync any episodes.
You have to use the proprietary Zune software to sync podcasts - the instructions are vague, so I would go to the Zune support forum to get further instructions on this: http://www.zune.net/en-us/support/usersguide/gettingstarted/setupfaq.htm
There is a way and none of your solutions work. There is a software you can download and use as a Hack but the problem is that is does not work with Windows XP/Vista/7...Windows Media Player does not recognize the Zune as a devioce or a player, just like Windows will not recognize it as a storage drive in Windows Explorer. You would figure with Zune being a Microsoft Product, that it would work well with other MS products but they screwed up somewhere and did not get the memo that Zune is a MS product
uhm i think i may have found your solution, that is if your using limewire or some client of the sort, i synced my zune while the program (limewire) was on and downloading music and i had the same problelm you did so i simply deleted all my music and put it back on the zune while limewire was off and now it works fine, i have an 80 gig btw if that matters
Through the software in the device options you can delete everything on your zune (same as a reformat on your computer harddrive) this should solve your problem for the most part... If not there is a keycode that will ERASE EVERYTHING including firmware so you can start fresh.. Just try the software method and see how it goes.
