    Ok....so I'm a "newbie" here-lol
    Long time F150 Ecoboost contributer but I digress.
    I've been trying to download Zune software to my Note 3!
    Having no luck.
    My Zune is absolutely loaded with great tunes and I have Zune desktop hardware on my PC Laptop....but again can't get it to load onto a Micro SD Card or to get desk top on my Biggin's Rooted Verizon Note 3 (T-Mobile now) :blush:
    Was a LONG TIME Verizon customer on Unlimited....until they started jacking up the monthly bill?
    I mean I don't understand.....whats up with[​IMG] hitting 80-100+ gigs a month?
    Borderline.....sorry a pinch too much info-lol
    Back to Zune> Note 3?

    From what I understand, Zune only works on Zune hardware..ie MS Windows Phones.

    In addition, Microsoft will “retire” Zune services on Nov. 15, the company says Zune devices will still work, and anything saved to them will be playable. You’ll also be able to transfer music to and from your Zune. But you won’t be able to stream or download songs from the Zune service. Microsoft is turning off the spigot.

    There was a time when I had 4 Zunes in the family, and loved them. I received emails from Microsoft years ago that the spigot was off and no more music to download so we stopped using them. As Jeffrey stated, the Zune software was proprietary to Microsoft and I'm not aware of any way to transfer that music to another device and use it. Maybe a Windows phone, but I thought that was not compatible either based on what Microsoft sent me. I thought they switched all Zune music to the new X Box music and only that was compatible with Windows phones? Maybe I misunderstood their message and the time line?

    Well I guess the ole Zune will stay connected to the Kicker Boom Box.
    I knew Microsoft had a lock on the software and that they discontinued it.
    I hoped someone had a a way to work around it.

    No one is going to invest resources on a discontinued product..

    Best option is to upload all your dune music to Google play music.

    Egoboost F-1fiddy eh? I'm all about the 5.0.

    Are you talking about music you own or music you downloaded from the Zune Marketplace? From what I remember, Zune Marketplace music was DRM protected and had to be refreshed from the Zune software every 30 days. That type of music isn't going to play on an Android phone without some sort of Zune Marketplace style app to update the licenses. If it's music you own and not protected there are numerous ways to copy it to your phone and play it.

    It's music that I own or files that were synced to the Zune.
    The problem is that I believe I[​IMG] have to download either a Zune player app to my android in order for the Zune files to transfer?

    If it's music that you own and not Zune copyright protected you can plug your phone into your computer and copy the songs directly to your phone, or SD card. The Play Music app should open and play them once they are copied to your phone, as long as they are not copyright protected.
