Hey, I just bought a Zune today, and am trying to install the software that goes with it. The installation runs fine until it get to the "preparing your computer" stage, then it decides that it wants to stop at 99% completion. I googled it, and I found out that you are supposed to deactivate your firewalls, so I did that, and it's still not working!

Anybody got any ideas?

Don't use distortion pedals. Just bury your guitar for three weeks, and then dig it up, that should do the job.

You have a Windows or a Mac

If you have a Mac, Zune wont work.

well what you have to do first is throw away your zune.

next go buy a zen.


The Zune software is garbage, but the software that came with my Zen Vision M wasn't too great either.

TS, do you have Winamp? It can manage most music players, even iPods. It might work for your Zune.

No, I don't, I've never even heard of Winamp. What all can it do?

you put the tape in wrong!!


but really, check your drivers and your current runtime environment. make sure everything is up to date and you have the minimum requirements for the software. i have heard that there are a few different free alternatives to the zune software that apparently many people like more than the retail.
Gibson SG Special Faded(Super Distortion/PAF Pro)
Carvin V3M
Jet City JCA2112RC
Taylor 114e
Ibanez SR300e

www.winamp.com Quite possibly the best media player around, and it's completely free (though you can upgrade for $20). It can play any media file (audio and video), and is way more stable and less specialized than iTunes or Windows Media Player. Plus like I said, it'll allow you to manage most MP3 players (though I'm not sure if you can sync them like an iPod). Download it and see for yourself.

Everyone makes fun of Zune and it's software, and it's never been a problem for me.

Me neither. I'd try turning off all unnecessary start up programs (like you should have turned off anyway) and then try.

I have. Dear God, I'm fixing to rip my Zune and my Computer to bits!

I don't know if I have SP1 or SP2, how can I find out?

Edit: Oh yeah, I got Winamp, but now I need a driver for my Zune so it my computer can detect it, and the only way that I know how to get the driver is through the installation file that won't work.. Is there another place on the internet that I can get the driver?

^microsoft website

and start > run > winver

it says there

i'm 99% sure you shouldn't need the software for the zune to get music onto it from your pc. otherwise it would be as horribly locked as an ipod

Alright, I finally found a driver, but to install it, I need the Device Manager, and all of a sudden, it decides to not work. It says that "MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly" and then it gives me a registry number, CLSID: {74246BFC-4C96-11D0-ABEF-0020AF6B0B7A}.

/start rant

I fucking hate computers!!!

/end rant

I'm getting in way over my head here, and maybe this is too complicated even for the pit. Is there a way to manually copy and paste my driver files into the correct place, or am I going to have to revive my Device Manager? If I need to, I can get a friend of mine to fix the registry (and the Device Manager) for me.
