The new Zunes are nice tho. If I didn't get a 60 gig a few years back I would have gotten one.

And I really hope they give Apple some competition.

Zunes do seem pretty cool as far as the social element. Kinda like having a built in Last.fm.

They don't work with Macs, so it's kind of a moot point tho.

My coworker came in flashing his lil joint the other day...he then proceed to show me all these "fancy" web tools he could use..
He walked away sad when i pulled out my WM6 XV6800 and proceeded to do everything he did but like 10 times faster. AND when I told him it was about $200 less than his shiney toy. AND he was even more hurt when the IT guy told him that it wasn't capable of pushing his email therefore he would have to rely on his slow ass Edge web connection to navigate to our online email server.
oh yeah AND since he can't use it for work, he can't expense it either lol...

There's a little repeat icon on the iPhone, right next to the time bar (there's also a shuffle icon on the other side).

All you do is tap that to make the song repeat.

You have to drill back to main menu, settings, Repeat All/Repeat Once/Repeat track...

Then we can go there. Matter of fact, i think a new "Rules of Engagement" post is in order. There is way too much apples to oranges comparisons going on here.

Iphone is a phone that maxes out at 16GB, not comparable to any Zune device or any other MP3 player for that matter, it's not in the same league or class.

I guess the Ipod Touch is technically in the same genre as any flash based MP3 device, so to campare it to flash based Zune or any other flash based MP3 player is ok.

The "Classic" ipod is in the same genre as the Zune 30GB & 80GB and any other hard drive based MP3 player....

So all of you folks talking iphone this and iphone that can just leave the room. Because as soon as I pull out a WM6 device, yalls shit is pretty much shut down anyway.

In response to Reply # 35


  

          

and boom, I'm on another song

referring to how my Samsung yp t8 works

you select repeat one

go to a folder play a song, tired of hearing it? click next

in any case, it nullifies the purpose of quick list, you have to empty
your quick list just to repeat one song, when you should be able to
select a setting, without that you have to refill your quick list
every time you wanna repeat a song

really tho, they should add it to whatever pops up when you click the D
pad while you're listening to a song

especially when the desktop software works.
The whole reason people beef over lack of drag and drop is because they've been soured by itunes and various other crappy desktop interfaces.

You gotta admit thought, that's one hell of a feature. Maybe Sprint should include that in their marketing campaign.

would prevent you from adding whatever files you wanted to the hard drive

that Samsung (2005) is serious tho'. voice recording, line-in, radio -recording, video, photo, custom equalizer AND you can repeat 1 song

96. "I got a 2gig T9"
In response to Reply # 71


          

i got an ipod but the battery crapped out. it's strictly a home stereo now. the samsung is my portable one.

the T9 holds me down. i usually rotate a few albums so i don't need the space. if i'm not listening to an album anymore i take it off and put it in my music folder on the computer. i hated having songs on my ipod that i never listen to. i never use shuffle so they're just sitting there for no reason.

i mainly wanted a smaller device to carry. it has great features that i actually use. i can delete files DIRECTLY from the device, drag and drop (i hate itunes), play video (small screen but crystal clear), great UI and menus, 30hr battery life, you can change the song speed (chipmunk fast or screw music slow), etc.

i think they shit on apple in a lot of areas. if they made a 10-30gig device i'd cop no question.

Yet Apple gets pretty much 98% of the love.
I don't get it.
I've gone back and forth on these boards for years, sometimes i've rode for Apple, sometimes not. Lately, not.
I have a little Sony flash player i use for the gym. NWS something or another..i got it off Woot one day. I think i posted about it here too. Love it! It has noise canceling headphones..ACTIVE noise canceling, it's small, has sports shuffle etc...thing Apple STILL hasnt gottten down with.

I don't get how it's software pimpin though. Most every MP3 player comes with it's own media management software. I'd feel pretty cheated if i purchased one that didn't.

I'm not down with touch screen.. Hell, my non touch screen gets greasy enough, can't imagine how bad it would be if it were a touch screen.
The D pad is touch sensitive, you drag your finger across and it changes tracks, or controls volume. If you want feedback, you can press it too.

totally pointless for those of us who own mac, can't actually figure out why Microminisofty didn't include mac support.

My iPod is my iPhone and I'm happy with it but am curious about Zunes since I've never seen one yet. I don't even think it's out here in Sweden yet -- which is strange.

That is kinda sucky on MS' part for not making it Mac compatible. I do wonder if that is something they can remedy with a firmware update. Funny thing is, I got my wife a Nano for christmas and she got me a zune lol....

having integrated stereo controls for my iPod in my whip is a HUGE plus.

there's no reason to get a Zune except for price.

There is no reason to buy a Zune.

the 504 was a gift, the 605 I bought.

plus @ 379, the 605 wasn't that bad @ all.

I'd respect you're enthusiasm much more if you at least had the iphone...
Although I don't advocate, I at least respect iphone owners. It's a sleek phone, once it gets 3G i'll stop hating on it so hard.

Saying random shit that didn't make any sense...off in your own little world riding for your lil imaginary heroes...i see you.
No shit i'm a fan, thus this post was created..
Nervous about a gadget??? Son, I been through more gadgets, and been up on more gadgets than you've ever known existed seeing as how you are too afraid to venture beyond the realm of Apple...this is a hobby for me. I got a good job and a good wife that affords me the leisure of copping gadgets at will and coming on these boards getting minions like you rilled up to the point of incoherency. Copping pleas about what?? I made a statement point blank..lol..

if macs had every bit of the functionality that PCs had, everybody in the world would own one. Until that day comes, we'll just leave them to the retards, hipsters and people who think they're graphic designers because they know a thing or two about photoshop.

you mean the zune + zune software

like iTunes forces you to tether to an iPod, Zune runs with the Zune Software. They're essentially the same product with different interfaces, both with their positive and negative quirks

if you make the folder of your windows media library the same as the folder the zune software automatically searches, you can basically use the windows media player to manage your music, which makes tweaking ID tags, a breeze (which was the only real issue i had with the zune software).

Since everyone jumping all over the place with pros and cons...
The most common cons i've heard mentioned are

-No drag and drop
.Name me one player that allows drag and drop that has a non cumbersome, muffled up, intuitive interface.
-No repeat
.Tell me how two clicks to add a song to a quick list and repeat is any different than drilling back to a main menu selecting repeat and then going back to the song
-Weight
.The Zune 80GB is the lightest hard drive based player out. Larger screen even.

2 actually. And if I ever used a Zune on a mac, they'd revoke my apple membership. And it would deserve to be taken.

Next you gonna tell me Vista is better than Leopard? But that you downgraded back to XP, so XP is better than Leopard?

I had a dude at my job tell me that Explorer on XP can do everything iPhoto can do just as well as iPhoto, if not better. I'm done with y'all PC dudes.

100. "Thousands Wait Overnight at Microsoft Stores for 2nd Gen Zune"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Thousands Wait Overnight At Microsoft Stores For Second Generation Zune
December 17, 2007 | Issue 43•51


NEW YORK—In a year that saw the release of such best-selling products as the Motorola RAZR 2 V8 and the wildly popular Casio XD-SW4800 handheld dictionary, no personal electronics product launch was more highly anticipated than the November 13 debut of the second-generation Microsoft Zune mp3 player.


Consumers eagerly line up outside New York City's famous 5th Avenue 24-hour Microsoft Store.
The sleek new Zune, whose record-breaking sales have made the Zune name synonymous with "mp3 player," was so sought-after that thousands formed long lines outside hip, minimalist Microsoft Stores across the country days before the device went on sale. In Midtown Manhattan, the hysteria reached such a fever pitch that some were willing to pay as much as $200 for a spot in line.

"How could you not want one?" said self-described "Microsoft fanatic" Maria Arkin, who, like many others scrambling to be among the first to get their hands on the new Zune, expressed disappointment upon learning that sales were limited to just two units per customer. "It's amazing. There's just nothing else like it on the market."

Arkin added, "Plus, it's small enough to fit in my pocket—right next to my cell phone!"

Even skeptics have found it difficult to deny the Zune's appeal. With its video capability, "squircle"-shaped control pad, Microsoft logo emblazoned on the back, and iconic black earbuds, it has become a must-have item for everyone from high-powered executives to trendy young scenesters. Many consumers consider owning the newest model of Zune to be the most essential status symbol of the past 10 years, hailing it as the hallmark fashion accessory of the so-called "Zune Generation."

"The second-generation Zune has it all," said Brian Lam, editor in chief of Gizmodo, a popular tech blog. "It's got a great design, and the cult of personality that the undeniably charismatic Bill Gates has created with his Microsoft product launches only adds to the Zune's desirability."

Though the Zune continues to dominate the world of personal electronics, technology experts believe it will quickly be overshadowed by the fall 2008 launch of the hotly anticipated new Texas Instruments TI-Nspire graphing calculator.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I found this post interesting so I read up a bit on the Zune. Can you guys tell me if these issues still exist or if they’ve been handled by firmware updates?

-No EQ settings on the player.
Not TOO big of a deal, but still kinda sucks

-No gapless playback
Wow, that's pretty big.

-No foreign language support (songs with Asian characters show up as squares).
This would suck. I have a bunch of Japanese music with kanji (or is it katakana...?) characters

-Only 22 hours of audio playback compared to the iPod classic’s 45 (according to CNET’s review).
Not TOO big of a deal, but more battery life is always better.

-No Autoplaylists with the Zune software.
Oh, that would suck. I use those a lot.

-No rating of songs with the Zune software.
This would also suck, but without auto playlists, I guess it's pretty useless.

True. To my ears, the fidelity and sound quality is better than my ipod was though. I never used the EQ on that though. The only player i've used EQ on is my little Sony.

I haven't confirmed this. How can I test it? I don't have any mixtapes.

Funny you mention that. I had an import of Groove Theroy that I guess was japanese. The characters showed up on the Zune desktop software, but I think they did come up as squares on the actual Zune. I ended up retagging it so I dont remember now...i dont read japanese and all.

With wifi off battery life increases. I'll have to look for the actual time though.

True.

>it's pretty useless.

My understanding is that they removed the ratings with the update. Now you can assign it a Heart or Broken heart. Somehow thats supposed to be better than a star rating system that it used to have. Haven't played around with it much yet though. I do believe you can sort by heart or broken heart though.

You have to pick a DAP that suits your needs. Shit that isn't important to some people is extremely important to others, and vice versa. A few of the Zune's shortcomings are things I'm really used to with the iPod.


>>-No gapless playback

>mixtapes.

On the Game Theory album by The Roots, False Media (track 2) and Game Theory (track 3) kinda melt into each other with no gap in the audio. Actually, Game Theory kinda has things like that all throughout...pauses would definitely take away form it.

On Moonlighting by Tanya Morgan, Paper Thin (track 3) and We Be (track for) do the same thing.

I can't think of anything off the top of my head that does it, but it's pretty common with hip-hop.

This is pretty big though, as a lot of albums are MADE not to have gaps. I can't imagine listening to Sound Bombing 2 with pauses in between tracks.

>>-No Autoplaylists with the Zune software.

Ah, this is real? Yeah, no Zune for me, even if I get a PC (or install Windows on my Mac)

But I agree with you overall. I own an ipod too. I rode hard for it too. Now i've encountered something I feel is superior. The Zune hasn't gotten proper shine around these parts lately. Especially since the update. That's the real reason for this post. I appreciate that some folks take a more rational approach to rebuttal.

Ok, tested it last night. Not sure if what i'm hearing is gapless or the way the CD was mastered. I recall ?uest talking about how he mastered it so that it would sound gapless no matter what media you were playing. The pause between tracks is not nearly as dramatic as it was on my ipod though.

Ok,I checked into it..I'm not a big playlist user... playlists work like this.. If you want to, you can simply use Zune desktop to sync only then you can manage all your tagging, playlists, etc in WMP11. The Zune reads from the storage folder of WMP and if there are playlists there, they will sync up.

I know exactly what he's talking about. There is an ever-so-slight pause inbetween track transitions on the Zune, so whereas during the transition of these two tracks there isn't a gap between the two songs, if you listen to it on the Zune you hear a slight gap.

It can be pretty annoying --- try listening to the transition between Nightworks and Arabian Knights off the first Soundbombing album and you'll notice that on the CD there isn't a pause at all between the transition, but on the Zune you'll hear a gap. It completely messes up the flow of the album because damn near the whole album transitions from track-to-track like that without a pause between songs.

You can't chase a marathon runner. The features That make the zune sexy: wifi beaming and whatever the fuck it does, but people like the standard, and it is hard out there for a pimp to replace the ipod. the only way that the zune will ever get to the level of the Ipod is if it does three things:

- Drop it's price point to beat Apple (160 gig zune for 250 or even three would change my mindset by far)

- Play all types of video and audio content (even protected apple files) consumers are fuckin tired of having all types of formats for music and video that they can only use on certain players You give me a zune screen with the apple store, then I would be happy)

- They have to beat apple to some quality idea. The issue with wifi is that it's cool, but few people have the zune, so i have few people to share with so the idea is worthless. Apple is making new moves every year, 30 to 60 to 80 to 160 gb Ipod video, The touch and the the iphone are giving microsoft fits. They just have to be first with the next innovation in this portable music game and ride it to glory. Until then I need to load up more music on my 160 so i am done.

Only the studios could make that happen. It's really not a fault of MS or Apple. It's the damn studios. It is annoying across the board.

Yall aren't hearing me. With the newest firmware Wifi is more than just sharing tracks with other Zunes. It's already been opened to allow syncing. Now, lets talk firmware upgradability. What other company has taken the bold step of releasing a firmware upgrade to early adopters of the original player? What other company has committed to further development and feature roll out of not only their existing devices, but their future devices? The Zune is a device that can and will continue to be developed. I don't have to worry that with the next device release, my current one will be obsolete. How many ipods have you folks gone through because something newer and more feature packed was released? It's insane to think about. Yeah, Mac makes a good product, but mack is also abusing their customers by releasing newer and better product year after year forcing them to purchase new product to enjoy the newest features. Folks need to peep game...cause Apple is playing a lot folks..playin em HARD.

303. "Support of HD radio, satellite, and AM would be a start."
In response to Reply # 114


  

          

I'd like to be able to still rock my sports talk when I get out of the car.

And HD radio should be beyond car stereos.

Maybe decent broadcast digital TV transmissions that don't rely on the Web.

Go all solid state drives on the next generation, and offer drive sizes that aren't exactly the same as the iPod (how about 100 or 200gb?)

Wireless modulation (to do away with needing plugs of any kind to hear in your car or on your home stereo)

And of course definitely get every O.E. and aftermarket car stereo manufacture on board about integrated control, as well as Mac compatibility (which would win more market share versus the Apple).

Doesn't have to compete with every "cute" feature Apple comes with, and really shouldn't IMO...it should do different things that make it stand out. While Microsoft can do anything it wants and compete with whoever, however; Zune the product should IMO focus on being the greatest bang for the buck when it comes to entertainment.

Nice hardware. The Zune Desktop is horrendous. I heard that before buying, but I didn't hear that the Zune would work with WMP or Winamp or any other software. That's game over for me and the Zune.

goes with me to the gym and various places in which it is subject to damage. I guess it falls into the category of separating work and play. I see where you are going with all of this, but it's mostly a question of work standards. I'd never show up at a clients office with their "Work" stored on my mp3 player, just doesn't seem professional to me.

In response to Reply # 157


          

player; youre just asking for trouble. And the files I tote around on my iPod are basically just big ass Access and Excel files that I dump every other night; but I know artists that use it to carry highres files, Logic tracks and files, etc... and I think that's what the original point of all this was. If you're just porting and dumping from point a to b, i dont think there is much risk.

Files like that I keep on my HTC Windows Mobile phone. 4GB microSD card works wonders for that. That's just how I get down though.
For reals though, cats taking this post waaaaaaay too seriously.. I know good and well that every device ain't for everybody. But I think everybody should be aware that there are options out there besides the iPod.

but its requires either Ffking with windows settings or a download of a
program that does it for you automatically

next, to add files to the zune directly, you have to begin a sync
process, and then shut down zune.exe during the sync, this leaves the
zune "open"


WHY MICROSOFT?? WHY DO YOU DO SUCH STUPID THINGS???




and if you upgrade, make sure to take your hack files off the zune 1st,
I lost some good pr0n that way : (

and it's pretty dope. The Zune isn't as bad as people think. If your looking for an alternative to an ipod cop one. I can't understand some of this blind hate. It's like they have stock in Apple or have one for status reasons. I think competition is good. I think any portable device that plays music and video is great though. All MP3 players are the sh!t IMO. Over the years I've had 3 different types of players and enjoyed them all.

I'm glade to see you can form an identity as an extraordinarly intelligent individual at an affordable price, sir.

Capitalism has served you well!

I on the other hand most likely fit into your 'retarded' faction of society for owning one I-pod I traded a twenty sack for to some kid who jacked it.

Again, enjoy your elevated sense of self worth, you earned it.

If I had to chose between an 80 gb Ipod and an 80gb Zune can you tell me the pros of having a zune without the snark or outright hate for the ipod? I might get one or the another in the next few days. Thanks.

Other than having FM radio what does the Zune have over the Ipod? If I don't have a wireless connection at home what good is the sync feature for me? Is it easy to convert alot of different type of video files on it?

Why is better than an IPod?

I bought my girl a Ipod Nano for Christmas and I see why their so popular but I don't what to but up the cash for an 80GB version if something else out on the market is vastly better. To sum all of this up...what makes it so great? Thanks.

If you dont have a wireless network, you won't get much use outta the wireless sync feature right now. I haven't tried to convert video files on it yet. I can't imagine it's any more difficult or any easier than the iPod though. There are other players (such as Archos) that can probably handle video conversion and compatibility waaaay better than both Zune and Ipod.

I bought my wife a Nano for Christmas too. She's a runner and that Nike+ interface is pretty much the greatest most useful workout feature i've seen on an MP3 player to date. The Nano shuts the flash based Zunes down no doubt just for that feature alone. So yeah, if you talking Nano's then get the Nano over the 4GB & 8GB flash based Zunes. Real talk. Now if you talking 80GB ipod vs 80GB Zune, then as i've listed here, I feel like the Zune is a better device for all the reasons I've stated in here. They are both the same price, so price won't be a factor. It all boils down to interface, features, look and feel.

So thats a plus for folks that dont have their 360's networked with their computers. Plug in the Zune, and it will play the videos, songs, etc. Will the ipod videos play on the 360? im not sure i only had the ipod photo.

what the hell?

So every time I want the music to stop long enough to order a coffee, I have to shut the whole thing down, and then when I restart, I have to choose "Music" and then "Playlist" and then "Quicklist" and then "Play All" to get back to where I was?

Oh, I don't like this at ALL.

I just bought it yesterday & got it working today, and was completely lost.

But the quicklist is always song-based, right? So if I add three albums and then decide to take one away, I have to do it song by song?

Let me play with that. Do you mean if you add 3 albums you can't remove a whole album from the quicklist? Okay i gotcha...let me check

The zen jukebox is an older technology, but it does sort "selected music" (i.e., quicklist) according to how you added it. and you can remove stuff from your quicklist individually or in groups. Plus if you like your quicklist you can save it as a playlist on your device, without having to use your computer.

Do you find yourself making playlists on the go very often? I guess I don't because I have just waay too much music on here to sort through and make one, unless i just bought a few new albums or something.
Did you get the 80GB/ 30GB or the flash based one?

In response to Reply # 170


  

          

What happens is that I get a craving for a certain group of, say, albums, and I put them all on my "quicklist" and then I end up saving it as a playlist so that I don't have to put it all back together later. Then I go to the gym and put on a different playlist, one that I figured out (on the go) for the gym.

Actually, when I think of it, the vast majority of my playlists were made on the device and not on the computer. The only exceptions to that are the playlists that are actually the tracks that I burned to cd's for friends.

I'm way way more device-oriented than computer-oriented. I have a feeling that the choices made by Microsoft in designing this item were made in large part with marketing in mind. If you have to go to the proprietary website in order to sort through your music, you'll buy from them or leave your footprints here and there, you know what I mean.

Creative's software is not web-based, and I like that.

I guess i'm more desktop oriented. And the whole idea of trying to created playlists from well over 10,000 songs while on the go is just mind boggling to me lol..i'd go nuts!

Nah, I don't think Microsoft is out for marketing as much as they are trying to drive and promote Zune as a socially driven device. I'd put Apple more in the marketing camp than the Zune. I'm not sure if you've had a chance to sort through the Zune desktop software enough yet. It is in no way a website driven software. The only website portion is related to the Social. All the track/music/video organization and sorting is all done through the desktop software. Proprietary yes, but so is just about every other mp3 player software.

don't forget the marketplace.

I think if you compare Zune and iPod, you're probably at parity.

But Zune to creative?

I would have stayed with Creative if they'd made one big enough.

You, on the other hand, probably don't care how much space is on your device, because you never look through it all except on your desktop.

This was circa 1999. It was silver and only had 128mb of memory lol. I STILL have it too. And it is one of the best sounding mp3 players i've ever owned. I am familiar with the Creative desktop. In fact more than 70% of my mp3 collection was tagged using their desktop software. So yeah, i'm a fan of Creative's products.
But hold tight, you never know, the playlist options might very well be modified with the next firmware release for the Zune.
So, do you regret your purchase?

I look through the music on my device, but generally I use it while driving, so I either select by genre or album and i play in shuffle mode. Or I just shuffle all songs and don't touch it for a week. But i've never been big on playlists, so yeah, I can't really call it one way or another on that angle. Since you are big on them, i'll take your word on it.

In response to Reply # 183


  

          

For one 90 day period, I had a Zen Micro. On the 91st day, it stopped working (of course it had a 90 day warranty). I still vaguely miss a couple of the features that it had that my zen jukebox didn't have. So there will probably always be a little regret for the features from the jukebox that aren't on the zune.

I've found things I like a lot, though, like the ability to link to an artist on the device from a song that's currently playing.

Do you know of a way, other than by just letting the player reset itself, to go immediately to what's playing?

Let's say you've got the device on shuffle all songs and you're fooling around on it adding stuff to a quick list, and a new song comes on in the shuffle and you go, "what is this?" What's the *fastest* way to find out what is now playing on your device?

On the jukebox, from the home page there are links to "selected music" (quicklist) and "now playing".

Depending on how far away I get from the Now Playing screen it might take a couple of presses, but ultimately it cycles back to the Now Playing/ Current Playing track.

Or the little button on the left with the left pointing arrow in it?
I turn my Zune on, go to a song and start playing..
Then I push the squircle and go back up to the main menu while the song is still playing...I fool around with some more menus and now i'm knee deep into looking at photos...A new song comes on and if i'm still looking at photo's I have to push the arrow button....ahhh i see.
In pics i have to push End Slideshow, wait about 5 seconds and then it goes back to the Now Playing screen .. LOL...HOW do you discover this stuff!?! LOL

On the Zune, you're scrolling through the whole thing. Granted, those letters in the margin make it a little easier, but still, I want the "Find" option, where I can type in the name I'm looking for, or even just the first three letters.

I too have a lot of music on my device.

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/07/09/10/review_apples_new_ipod_nano_is_a_5g_video_ipod_in_a_nano_thin_shell.html&page=2

"A new Search function works slightly different than the previous one introduced in last year's 5.5G iPod. The Search field lets you enter items by letter using the clickwheel, and refined results popup as letters are entered. At any time, a click drops you into the search results, with list both albums and songs, as well as videos. It might take a moment to realize that entered letters can be deleted with a back click. Letters are entered by spinning the clickwheel and clicking on the letter. There's no way to search for numbers, so if you were looking for Feist's "1234," you're out of luck. There's also no way to enter a space.

However, since you are searching your own limited amount of content, you can probably manage to find what you're looking for with just a letter or two; even two letters breaks down a couple thousand items into a few dozen results to scan through. As with the 5G iPods, alphabetical letters pop up as you rapidly run though listings, making it easy to find needles in the 8 GB haystack even without performing a search. "

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

How do I resolve the issue of albums reading as "various artists"? This is true in really just way the fuck too many cases. I'm okay with the idea that the album gets listed repeatedly for every time the artist listing has a slight change (like NaS, NaS ft. Lauryn Hill, NaS ft. ....) even though I don't like it, but what the hell is going on that some do that and some just dump into "various artists"?

Also, aren't you the one who told me that it could create auto playlists for you, like even creating lists of music you listen to most frequently at specific times of day?

I trusted you, man.

That ties back to Gracenote and the various databases that MP3 Tagging software uses to retrieve artist/album information when you rip a CD. Even when you get tracks from other people they could be tagged improperly from jump. The best way i've found to remedy it is the manage my tags manually. I use Windows Media Player for that most of the time. I've heard other folks mention other programs that do a better job at album tagging. What I think i'm finding with the Zune is that some artists show up as both Various Artist AND within the actual artists catagory. Give me some specific albums and i'll see if I have them and they show up as Various on my Zune.

Nah, that wasn't me that told you about auto playlists though. Remember, i'm not big on playlists lol. I do recall that the Windows Media Player 11 has some sort of Auto Playlist function built into though.

don't put ALL your trust into me, i'm just a man lol....

Quality by Talib Kweli


In both instances, the album is not listed under the artist. Only under Various Artists.

Dude, this sucks.

I'm used to being able to change all the information on a song or album manually in the creative software. Are you saying that I'm pretty much screwed here? I HAVE TO accept the Gracenote tags?

Oh that sucks.

Quality is under Talib Kweli and not under Various Artists on my Zune.
Yeah, funny you mention that, I used to use the Creative software to change my tags when I had an ipod too.

You're not stuck with the gracenote settings though. There is a setting within the Zune desktop software that's something to the effect of "Update Artist Information Automatically" or something like that. You need to uncheck that box. You want to prevent Zune desktop from updating your artist information and tags. I'm at work so I don't have the software installed on this computer. I'll verify the setting when I get home though. But yeah, Gracenote SUCKS. I've never been happy with any of the automatic tagging databases. They put stuff in the wrong Genre all the time.

The short of it though is that MS didn't incorporate a good way to edit tags in the Zune desktop software...yet. I use Windows Media Player 11 to rip CDS and manage my MP3 tags manually. I usually let Gracenote fill in the basic stuff, then I go in and override and revise the stuff that it messed up. Typically it's genre and the whole Various Artists thing. Hope that helps.

"automatically update album art and media information" even though I had it set to only replace missing information (I *like* the album art). It's kind of messed up if I have to choose between having the album covers and having it sort properly.

I have to tell you that I totally don't understand you on the Windows Media Explorers thing.

Also, all of my cds were ripped using the creative technology and they were all tagged to my satisfaction. And they were all imported as is from my hard drive.

That's the setting I have. Make sure the "Replace All Media Information" box is unchecked.

Sorry for the confusion. What I'm referring to is Windows Media Player. The software that typically automatically opens whenever you play any music. I think they are on Version 10 or 11 now. Yeah, version 11 is for Vista only I think. Check out this tutorial, it breaks it down better than I can
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/howto/AlbumInfo_how_to.aspx
That should give you a good basis on the ins and outs of tagging your songs. Creative, Itunes, Media Player etc. all use the same database to automatically identify your music. What Creative did better was provide you with a really simple interface for altering the media tags and artist information. You could very well continue to use the Creative desktop to tag your music and everything.

Geez. Sorry to say, fam, but I don't really see why you'd want a Zune and not an iPod. Not from this post at least...

-Gapless playback
-iTunes lets you edit the fuck outta your tags
-More variety in the lineup (bigger hard drives, smaller devices, phone+DAP devices, etc.)
-More accessories work with it (you could just buy those fancy magnet headphones)
-Able to be used as a portable hard drive
-Works with Windows & Macs
-Rentals from iTunes store
-Ability to search through songs
-EQ

>-Gapless playback

I don't do mixtapes, and I never noticed gaps, not that anal.

>-iTunes lets you edit the fuck outta your tags

Just like WMP but WMP lets you do more edits than itunes.

>-More variety in the lineup (bigger hard drives, smaller
>devices, phone+DAP devices, etc.)

Who cares about lineup, I got a real phone for business and the Zune handles my capacity issues and the size is just right. Nano is cool for my wife, but too dainty for me.

>-More accessories work with it (you could just buy those fancy
>magnet headphones)

Ultimately the device is most important. I got one case, a line out cable, a screen protector, and excellent headphones stock. I'm good. Apple continues to line the pockets of various lil manufactures to grab all yalls loot. Yall better peep game.

>-Able to be used as a portable hard drive

Can be done with a Zune.

>-Works with Windows & Macs

Fuck a Mac. What Mac head would be interested in a Non-Mac product??

>-Rentals from iTunes store

I have a 360. And a Windows Media Center PC. I BEEN renting shit online.

>-Ability to search through songs

Zune searches through songs faster, smoother, and with more ease than the ipod. Try it, you'll see.

>-EQ

If the device has good fidelity, and good hardware(ie. headphones) out he box, then EQ is just a novelty.

204. "Since when?"

Game Theory much? Besides that, a *LOT* of albums are gapless. I'm pretty sure that album where you play it backwards to the Wizard of Oz is gapless too (some famous rock album that I can't remember the name of...RJ or Bearfield probably know what I mean with their rock lovin asses)

Ok, that's one example. There's a shitload of different devices that can expand the capabilities of the iPod (transfer pictures from a digital camera to the iPod, live recording, etc.)

You have to hack it. Fuck and that.

Most people are fanboys like that. If Zune had the features I wanted and worked on my Mac, I wouldn't care if MS made it or not. Hell, I waited overnight in the rain for an M$ product (360)

You can put those on Zune?

No, not scroll through songs. The search feature Ninja Turtle Man was talking about.

Honestly, not much at all since it first came out lol... Like I said though, it ain't really an issue for me. I totally understand that a lot of folks are hung up on that, I ain't knocking them for being dumbasses about something so insignificant. The gap isn't that pronounced on Zunes, point blank. It ain't gapless, but it ain't as big of a deal as it was on the ipod before gapless playback was added.

>>>-iTunes lets you edit the fuck outta your tags

Advanced Tag Editing. I haven't updated my iTunes in ages, so if they now have better tagging capabilities, good for them, about time.

Senseless consumers, more concerned about having the latest Mac device more than anything else. I've already touched on this though. Millions of customers doesn't necessarily = better product. Janey even owned an ipod before and took that shit back...lol...

Dude, that's my whole point. Why do I need to transfer pics from my camera to my media player?? I got a 4gb SD Card on my camera son! When will I every NOT be close enough to a computer to get them pics off the SD card and transfer them to my Zune if I need them on there? That is a device that really had no point of existance. Live recording?? REAL musicians use professional equipment. Ipod is not professional equipment. I mean, i see your point, but what it boils down to is that 99.9% of those add-ons are useless junk designed to take your loot. Peep game dawg. Peep.

>>>-Able to be used as a portable hard drive

>

I don't have to hack it, i just have to transfer it through Windows Explorer instead of the Zune desktop software. Again, I touched the whole portable hard drive stuff above somewhere.

If i'm not mistaken, the whole term Fanboy is a derivative of mac fanaticism no? MS already straight said they are not interested in Mac heads with the Zune. The Zune is for folks that well, aren't full Mac heads. I dig mac products. But I dig MS products a little more. Plain and simple...so yeah, MS fanboy..i'll be that.

>>>-Rentals from iTunes store

Fuck I want to watch a HD movie on my Zune for?? Within 24 hours???? If my attention span won't allow me to download a movie, sit my ass on my couch and watch it then and there...then I got other issues to deal with. That's a dumb gimmic. Who the hell starts watching a movie, in the comfort of their own home, all booed up, and then 45 mins in decides "Shit, this would be WAAAAY more enjoyable to watch in the pissy ass subway on my lil ass ipod screen while looking over my shoulder so I don't get jacked." C'mon dawg...that feature is nails... Movies I own and rip can indeed be played on my Zune though.

Man, who want's THAT shit? By the time i drill down to a menu to finally start "typing" the artists name, coulda zipped to the artists and selected all their albums on the Zune. That feature is nails compared to the way Zune scrolls through your music just by wiping your finger across.

I have fewer songs than you, but it was still faster and easier for me to search by name.

Not being able to scroll in a circle is a drag, too. If I want something off Wooden Leather, I scroll all the way down. On my jukebox, if I wanted something off 8 Diagrams, I would just scroll down a little further and the list would restart.

On the Zune, I go all the way back up to the top. Makes me dizzy.

The features are different. There are definitely some nice things that I didn't have before. But they still feel like unnecessary extras (Video? Pictures? That screen is too small for my old eyes. Radio? Who needs a radio? lol), and the things I'm missing feel like necessities.

I guess it's more or less personal preference. I'm waay faster searching through songs on my Zune than I was on my Ipod. Mainly because I can just flick it and the list continues to scroll depending on how fast I flick it. (you did know you could do this right?) My thumbs used to get hella tired and annoyed doing that circle mess on the Ipod.
Radio is for the Gym, tuning in to the TV's.
Pics, I only use for novelty honestly.
Video..i use it for podcasts. NBC and various other news podcasts.

the album is pink floyd's 'dark side of the moon' and you don't play it backwards. playing 'famous rock albums' backwards nets you satanic messages. everyone knows that

are you on last.fm? if you are, add me: http://www.last.fm/user/bearfield/

That album is gapless though, right?

I remember some famous rock album being the big talking point when they came out with gapless playback.

I have two versions of The One, by Cee-Lo, ft Jazzee Pha & TI

One is on Closet Freak
The other is on Cee Lo Green Is The Soul Machine.

Closet Freak is clean.
Cee Lo Green... is explicit.

On my desktop, in I-Tunes, when I open the albums separately I can see both versions. I click on properties & see that they are indeed under different filenames.

However, when I search ALL songs, only one version shows up. And yeah, it's the clean version otherwise I wouldn't care or maybe even have noticed.

This despite the fact that I inadvertently uploaded Get Back by Little Brother twice and all the songs on both copies show up in the All Songs list.

WHAT THE HELL?
