I want to re-tag a bunch of songs to organize my music on my phone.For example cleaning up genres: putting Hip hop, Hip-hop, Hiphop, Hip-hop/Rap, Gansta Rap, etc., all in a single genre.
(Just typing that wore me out.) They also got rid of the weird "list" and "browse" views--they don't need "list" view anymore because you can edit song information from within browse view, which is the only view, and isn't called anything anymore--it's just the interface. With those fixes, the Zune software is no longer a show-stopper, and I can recommend the Zune as a credible alternative to the i Pod.
I still like the wireless sync, although other reviewers seem underwhelmed by it, and some of the new social features seem pretty cool--you can now see your friends from within the Zune software, play 30-second samples from their playlists and buy the songs with one click if you're interested, and add new friends by entering Zune tags or e-mail addresses.
Zune software is included with the Zune and is available for a free download.
Intended to be the primary method for managing content on the Zune, the official Zune software allows you to change Zune settings, add or delete files, and update the Zune firmware.
If you don't want to use the Zune software, you can use your computer's version of Windows Media Player to transfer music to the Zune.
While the Zune only supports WMA and MP3 audio formats, Windows Media Player will automatically convert incompatible files to a playable format for the Zune. Connect the Zune to your computer using the supplied Zune sync cable.Click the "Sync" button on the top right of Windows Media Player.Drag and drop the songs you want on the Zune into the "List" section below the Sync button.You can access songs in the Windows Media Player library by clicking the "Library" button, right-clicking the songs you want to transfer, and clicking "Add to list."Click the "Start Sync" button.If there are any incompatible files in the list, they will be converted before being transferred to the Zune.Now if they can just figure out how to bolt a touch screen onto the device....
