Zune updating songs cedar rapids speed dating
Microsoft's music service—which lets Zune hardware users stream and download tracks—was left to wither on the vine and quietly die. 15, the company says Zune devices will still work, and anything saved to them will be playable.
Redmond made it official Wednesday, quietly announcing the Zune is no more and leaving the few people still using the damn thing wondering where they go from here. You'll also be able to transfer music to and from your Zune.
Note some of these steps you can skip but I wanted to show what I did to get my resolution and I hope this helps!
Heads up, that ip address you used in the hosts file is your own.
And that depends upon Microsoft making the data accessible.
Perhaps that small beacon of hope is enough for you to hold onto the device.
Is there a way to force Groove to rescan the music directories.
I tried deleting the sources from the Groove setup then re-adding them and it doesn't help.
If that's the case you shouldn't even need to download the firmwares or install your own server, just edit your hosts file and it should hit the server. All that happened was "update error, there was an error while trying to update your device with the latest software, can't access this item because it's no longer available." Same message I got before. I followed the directions above and each suggestion afterwards.This is a guide that I basically took from Jazzfan80’s post and updated it so that other users get clearer instructions with the updated answers/replies from his post.In this post I will cover the way I was able to update my Zune firmware (one is easier than the other, thanks to mc Kaskie) and I have confirmed that both of these steps do work with my Windows 7 and 10 computers. Although Microsoft will "retire" Zune services on Nov. Wherever they go, the bigger question is how do those few Zune diehards pick up the pieces?
