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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)


2

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).

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.

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.

1) I would recommend setting up your own home server, store your music on it, and then tell the Zune Software where to find the music (e.g. your server)...some excellent home solutions are available, such as Amahi Home Server (free, Fedora Linux based), or Windows Home Server... 2) The other thing you could do, if you have a home network setup, is to store ...

A playlist is like a database of the locations of the songs selected by you usually stored/saved on your computer like a text file so depending on the number of songs the size of a playlist file will just be a few kb. So it merely access the songs location and plays it accordingly (you are right in saying that its like a bookmark) It doesn't make a copy ...

Windows 7 : Win + Shift + Left/Right Arrow Will move it to the same position on the 2nd monitor. You won't be able to resize it on 2nd monitor but you can at least move it over there.

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...
