Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

I've not been able to install the Zune software from the website. It tells me to upgrade to "2005 with update 2 or later". Some of the updates I'v tried don't work and none of the successful downloads solved the problem. -ready2return

Hey i got a zune and i cant do anything with it i cant download music at all any ideas????


Have you downloaded or have the disk and installed the latest updated software program from the Zune web site? You need the Zune software to sync music or videos to your player if you haven't done so yet. You also need to setup your software and name your Player so that the software recognizes it. Also where are you trying to download music from? From the Zune website, from another website, off of your computer? Can you please give more details of what is going on? I've had Zune players since 2006 since they came out, so maybe I can help if you can explain more. Kathy

My Zune says there was a error when I try to download the upgrade


well i assume that you either connected the zune to your pc or attempted to connect it to wifi, either way if there is an error downloading the upgrade then it could just be the site, and if you were able to dl it then you may not even need to upgrade. i recommend either restoring the zune to a previous version if the update was not successful or looking for an alternate dl site for the upgrade.

My 4 gb Zune was charging and now it wont come back on!


I found this on the Zune technical support (if this does help, be sure to rate my solution please):
Your Zune device is not detected by your computer or the Zune software
View products that this article applies to.

SYMPTOMS
When you try to use Zune Software, you experience one or more of the following symptoms:
• The Zune device is not detected by the computer. 
• The Zune device is not detected by Zune Software. In this case, when you pause on the device icon in the lower-left corner, you receive the following error message:
No Zune device connected 
• If you restored the Zune device software, the following messages are displayed on the Zune device:
Connect Zune to your PC
On your PC, open the Zune software and restore the Zune device firmware 

THINGS TO TRY
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:1. Update the Zune software on the computer. To do this, click settings, click software, click GENERAL, and then click CHECK FOR UPDATES.

If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
2. Restart the Zune device. 

To do this, follow these steps: a. Set the Hold switch to the unlocked position. 
b. Press and hold the Back button as you press the top of the Zune pad. 
When the Zune device begins to restart, release the buttons. 

If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
3. Disconnect the Zune device from the computer, restart the computer, and then reconnect the Zune device. 

If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
4. Connect the Zune device to a different USB port on the computer. Use a USB port on the back of the computer. Do not use a USB hub. 

If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
5. When you connect the Zune Sync Cable to the connector port of the Zune device, make sure that both ends of the sync cable click into position. Additionally, make sure that the sync cable is not connected to the device at an angle. 
6. Connect only one Zune device at a time. If you already have a Zune device connected to the computer, any other Zune that you try to connect will not be detected by the Zune software. Disconnect any additional Zune devices, and then try to connect again.

If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
7. If a full-screen battery image appears when you connect the device to the computer, you must let the device charge for several minutes before the device will start and be detected by the computer. 

For more information about how to charge a Zune device, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 
927348 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927348/) How to charge the battery in your Zune device 
If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
8. If you are using Windows Vista, install the Cumulative update rollup for USB core components in Windows Vista software update. This update resolves some reliability issues in the USB core components in Windows Vista. You will achieve better reliability in various scenarios by installing this update. 

For more information about this update, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 
941600 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941600/) Cumulative update rollup for USB core components in Windows Vista 
If you are not using Windows Vista, or if the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
9. Examine Windows Device Manager. To do this, follow these steps:a. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. 
b. Click Device Manager. Zune should be listed under Portable Devices. 
Note If the device was installed incorrectly, Zune may be listed together with a yellow exclamation mark (!). Or, it may be listed under Other devices as USB Device.
Double-click Zune, and then click the Driver tab. The current version of the driver that is installed should be 2.3.1035.0.

If Windows Device Manager indicates a device problem, or if the version of the driver that is installed is not the current version, you must update the driver. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Right-click Zune or USB Device, and then click Properties. 
2. Click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver. 
3. Click Search automatically for updated driver software. 
4. Click Install if you are prompted to do this. 
5. After the driver installation is complete, click Close. 
If Windows Device Manager found the drivers, click Close. If you want to locate the drivers manually, follow these steps:1. In the Zune Properties dialog box, click Update Driver. 
2. Click Browse my computer for driver software. 
3. Click Browse, locate the \Program Files\Zune\Drivers folder, and then click OK. 
4. Click Next. 
5. Click Install if you are prompted to do this. 
6. After the driver installation is complete, click Close, and then click Close again. 

If the issue is still not resolved, go to the next step. 
10. Examine the computer for conflicts that involve the USB host controller or the root hub. To do this, follow these steps:a. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. 
b. Click Device Manager. 
c. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. 
d. Verify that no errors appear in the list of USB devices. A yellow exclamation point or a red "X" next to a device indicates errors. If any errors appear, contact the manufacturer of your computer.

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.
