    I have less than 8 gigs of music and I think it should be pretty useful to have them there in cause my laptop die but I don't exactly know how to upload non picture files.

    Would love some help before venturing myself so everything goes fast and smooth.

    Is there a way to play it? Molly Wood said the only option she saw was an app called SkyDrive Player. I personally use Zune Pass and stream when there's something I want to hear. So technically all my stuff is in the cloud.

    Probably best mapping SkyDrive as a network drive on your PC Winterfang.

    Good luck, let us know how you get on. :)

    Works fine for me but a bit slow, but that's just down to my upload speed Grrrr

    The SkyPlayer app is just a downloader, you have to download the file first before you can listen to it.

    If you want to stream, just browse to your preferred file using the Office Hub and use IE.

    It's very long winded way I know, but it does stream one file at a time that way. I'm sure someone will have a proper streaming app for SkyDrive available soon. :)

    I'm not interested in playing it, I just want it for backup storage =)

    I have no idea what the guy is talking about, it's too confusing for me. I'm terrible at anything but the basic computer activities. ( browsing, listening to music, and managing files )

    Well you can just always just drag all your seperate files Winterfang, as long as they aren't in folders. 8GB hmm think i'll be 2 years older when youre done. ;)

    As TheWeeBear pointed out, you can drag files to the browser window to upload the files. Much faster than browsing for songs one at a time.

    MS needs to offer more SkyDrive space and the ability to access music from SkyDrive via the Zune on WP7. How hard can that be?

    How about just buying a flashdrive and store all your music there.

    The problem also is that you can only play one song at a time. There needs to be an option to shuffle all, shuffle folder...etc.
