"I have done some troubleshooting on my problem importing music into my Zune, and have concluded that the problem is that Zune has a difficult time adding songs from a NAS hard drive. Yesterday, I took a cd, Ennio Moricone’s Once Upon a Time in the West, and used Zune itself to rip this CD to a location on my NAS hard drive. Zune was able to successfully rip the CD and all MP3s were saved. If I double clicked on one of those files from Windows Explorer, Zune played the file just fine. However, I could not ADD any of those files to my Zune library. When I then used Zune to rip the same CD to my laptop’s hard-drive, the songs were added without any problem at all."
For the longest time, I've had this burning desire to purchase a NAS and store all of my media on it, but if the Zune software can't befriend a NAS
, then that takes away some of the craving. Admittedly, it hasn't been a good week for Microsoft. Bugs have plagued the Zune software to no end causing frustration levels of consumers to rise. When can we expect an update? This month, next month? Or will we be forced to wait until early 2007?
