I came up with a workaround... 1. Install Windows 7 on a Hyper-V VM 2. Install Zune on VM 3. Install http://www.eltima.com/products/usb-over-ethernet/ (I also tried http://www.usb-over-network.com/usb-over-network-download.html but it wouldn't recognise my phone) 4. Connect my phone to my laptop and configure USB over Ethernet between the laptop and the ...

Windows 7 and WP7 cannot handle ID3v2 version 2.4. Make sure they have ID3v2 at most 2.3 or ID3v1 tag.

I worked this out, finally. The simplest way to do this turns out to be eye-rollingly simple. Just use the Zune edit feature to change the Genre to "Podcast". Open each mp3 in the editor by right-clicking on it, and clicking on Edit. The Genre dropdown may not have Podcast as one of the options, but it doesn't matter, just type "Podcast" in Genre and ...

According to this site that list's the various Windows Phone 7 features, Switzerland didn't get any music store. Microsoft has been quite bad at rolling out the music store. http://andrewtechhelp.com/andrews-tech-opinions/126-windows-phone-7-feature-availability-matrix-the-mango-edition

I don't belive the Zune software provides an infrastructure for plug-ins. I'd love to write some but I can't figure out how to use the API (I'm not sure you're meant to)

It's a known issue with Zune. Check the workaround link. Should be fixed on upcoming versions. Another option, of course, is to disable Aero Snap.

First Download and Install Last.FM scrobbler, then you will have to install ZuseMe. While Installing Zuse, choose the folder where you have Zune installed to Installation Instructions 1. Install the latest Zune Desktop Software. 2. Install the Last.fm client and login (Allow scrobbling from all harddrives) 3. Make sure that you installed the requirements ...

It might not be the optimal solution but I think you could use DropBox in both of your computer and put the library on a DropBox folder. This way, any change will be sync to the other computer.

Zuse, a "plugin" of sorts to send play info to Last.fm. See info at the Zuse Last.fm group. It appears to now get the info directly from the Zune software. Previously it read the info from zune.net RSS feeds. Source code is available. There is an API for the Zune software, but as of yet it's undocumented. See Tom Fuller's SOA pitstop article.

Do you mean the client software, or the device software? For the device, you can develop games using the XNA framework. Those "games" can interact with most of the content on the device (except DRM protected content).

Here's a work around. It's long and annoying, but it works in a pinch: Change to the mini-player mode. Move Windows' taskbar to the second monitor. Now drag the mini-player to the second monitor. Minimize the mini-player. Maximize the mini-player.

I believe that there's no way to do a backup for Zune software... Best thing is to write the names of all your podcasts and start adding them to your new Windows 7 PC.


2

There doesn't seem to be a feature for that in the current version of Zune. I've looked a couple of times, but haven't found a sollution.

Playlists just point to the songs. They don't actually contain them. As an example, I just created a playlist containing all my songs and it did not double the size of my library or take up any more space on my hard drive.

This is not possible, the Zune software only supports this for music. I would suggest, however, that you mark a video watched by editing it's description, perhaps by adding a mark of some sort or just a plain word. Right-click the video, select Edit and a box appears: You can edit it's category, genre, title, release date, and description. You could ...

It is not supported on Microsoft Windows Server operating systems...perhaps run a virtual machine on Windows Server 2008 R2 and install it in there?

Zune seems to favor WMA and MP3 for audio without converting, up to 320 kbps. JPG and PNG images are also supported. But Zune will almost always convert video files. The exact type of video depends on what model of Zune or Windows Phone you have, so determining the type of video (frame size, framerate, etc.) is difficult. Certainly anything that isn't WMV ...

I had this issue also recently and was able to fix it today by editing the tags. I downloaded Mp3Tag and used it to set values for the following tags, which fixed my issue: Artist Album AlbumArtist AlbumArtistSort ArtistSort I don't use the album feature so I set ALL of the above fields to be the Artist...so if Jay Z made the song then the songs have ...

It appears they age out of the library based on the series settings that says "Keep x episodes of this podcast." The telling thing is the next line that says "Episodes you add to your collection aren't affected by this setting" The way I read that is: if the Zune software doesn't download it, it will not delete it.

The best list I found for acceptable Zune/WP7 formats is located here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff462087(v=vs.92).aspx If you're mostly concerned with videos - just convert to .mp4 container with H.264 or MPEG-4 codec. Personally, I always convert all my videos with an app like Freemake Video Converter before adding them to Zune/WP7. Freemake ...

Try: Hard resetting the phone, which will erase all information in it. I'm not sure how to do this... if I find out in time I'll edit this. Uninstall the entry in Device Manager (by right clicking), reboot, and then connect the device, letting the driver reinstall. Reinstall the Zune software

The Zune software is pretty awesome with letting you choose where to find music, you can specify specific folders for the Zune software to find music. It will do it over a network, as long as you are connected... You should be able to share iPod/Zune music back and forth as long as there is no DRM protection. If you buy the Zune Pass, it will be DRM ...

This is possible, I have done it myself... Find the video you want to change, right-click it and select Edit. A window comes up: As you can see, you can select from TV, Movies, Music, Personal, & Other. Hope that helps!

You should check and make sure you Zune HD is linked to your Marketplace account. Go to Settings->device->Linking. You should see a screen similar to the one below. If your Zune HD is not enabled for the marketplace, that would explain why the marketplace files were not syncing.

Have just discovered that in the QUICKPLAY view, the NEW group includes newly downloaded and unplayed podcasts as well as other new content. If there aren't to many they should all be viewable there.
