Not long ago, Microsoft sold its millionth Zune -- which means an awful lot of folks possess one of the most powerful portable multimedia contraptions ever created. If you're one of them, don't settle for merely "owning" a Zune: make the most of it, with Zune For Dummies.
Did you know you can stream your Zune music, pictures, and video through an Xbox 360 (and charge your Zune at the same time)? You'll learn how here (and no wonder: This book's coauthors' most recent work was Xbox 360 For Dummies).
Did you know you can subscribe to podcasts with your Zune (the easiest way to make sure there's always something provocative to listen to)? Do you know the easiest ways to connect your Zune to your home A/V system -- or for that matter, your car audio system, too? All that's covered, and much more, all with classic For Dummies® simplicity.
You'll start with the basics, getting a running start with your Zune hardware and its nice, clean interface. Step by step, you'll walk through getting your existing content onto your Zune: music, DRM-protected and otherwise (but sadly, not PlaysForSure WMA); video; and photos, too. You'll tour Zune Marketplace, Microsoft's source for 2 million-plus songs, and more; then walk through ripping your own CDs to Zune.
Next, the authors walk you through everything from creating your own content to preserving precious battery life, creating your own content to using Zune's signature "social" wireless features. Simply put, Zune For Dummies is your single source for all the Zune knowledge you're ever likely to need. Bill Camarda, from the July 2007 Read Only
