Looking for some help here, this question is primarily based around my Surface, though -
I use iTunes as my primary music software on the PC - and do not use the Xbox Music except to shuffle songs around for my Windows Phone.
Now I want my music on my Surface. The Xbox Music Cloud appears to have found about 1/5 of my library (shockingly low number, I listen to mainstream commercial garbage). So that is cool. I did not have to do anything. But, I want the rest of my music on the Surface.
Also, how do I get Xbox to recognize my songs? I will use a well known example of a song I used to secretly love, until I found out everyone secretly loved it, Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe. How the heck can MS not find this!
I see my Music syncing options as:
1. Buy an Xbox Music Pass. The limitation here is that I will be maintaining two music services - am I correct to assume Xbox Music cannot go on the iPod (iTunes)? Would have to maintain two separate collections.
2. Physically move my music onto the Surface with a USB or something...? Limitation: this seems inefficient.
Do I have other choices? SkyDrive?
