    OK, yes, I know that Zune was more or less going away and things are being rebranded as Xbox ----- for all things Microsoft entertainment. But I still have not really read what we're supposed to use to sync music, podcasts and other items over to our WP7 devices.

    I need help on this.


    Thanks

    Zune still works you just need to install it. Sync over WiFi does not work.

    All of this is true, even the bad news.

    I'm trying to install it now. So far, it seems to be frozen on the install. When I chose the option to run, it said I needed to update to.net 3.5 and it's been trying to install that now for awhile.

    We'll see how it goes.

    I'm just worried, I'm going to end up missing many of my podcasts I like to listen to and have to now resync all my music files.

    OK, so Zune is installed and in place on the regular Desktop area and a tile was created on the new Start screen. I thought everything was, somehow, being moved over to xBox ****** or whatever they were going to call it.

    Guess I just need to sit down with a For Dummies book and start learning and figuring out the new OS. I never did play with the trial version before it went out.
