Re: Zune Help

yea, I have 26.5 gigs on my zune...transferring them back may take a LONG time . But as long as one could do this, I dont mind. It's easier then finding the songs again or uploading them to another HD and back again.

I'm getting a new laptop soon and I want to be able to transfer all my music from my Zune Database to the new hard drive. Will this be difficult?

Depends on the amount of music you have and the size of your Zune. It won't be hard but it could be time consuming. Once you plug your Zune into the laptop all you have to do is right click your tracks and there should be an "add to collection" option.

As a side note, you cannot do this with iPod.

Re: Zune Help


On the new laptop, install the Zune software. Then connect the Zune and do a reverse sync. All the music will be downloaded to your new laptop. If you have the Zune Pass, there's an option to redownload and reauthorize all the music you've rented so far (I'm at work, don't remember exactly where it is, but it is there)


Good suggestion, although I personally don't trust limewire... I prefer the good ol' bittorrent with full encryption on

Re: Zune Help

Thats what I'm really worried about: Viruses. I want a lot of new music on my new lappy and Zune, but I'm afraid that some downloader (limewire, torrent) will bug my system.

Re: Zune Help

i personally downloaded limewire pro and i get mp4 movies and i have about 30 on there and i switch them up every so often but music and movies and great from limewire just dont download any software to avoid viruses

Also, where do you guys get movies for the Zune? free music as well? I heard that torrents are good but is that the best option?

Re: Zune Help

With the 2.5 software you can create an auto playlist (like the 1.x)... Just tell it what to include and update it every now and then.

Re: Zune Help

In the Zune software, there are Sync groups. Once you sync an entire album or artist, it will keep adding them back. You have to go in and find the sync groups, and delete the ones you don't want anymore....

Re: Zune Help

yea, since I posted this thread,they came out with new software and its much better. The only problem I have with it is that it should tell you which songs aren't on a playlist yet. That would be nice.

For instance, how can I delete a song off the playlist and when I sync back up, being it's on the Zune, it appears back up on the playlist etc...

1) Turn off Auto-Sync.
2) If that dosn't work (and it won't always) remove the play list from your sync list then it will not update.
