    Ok, so I know there's a way to use an iPod as an external harddrive which allows it to work on USB Loader, and there's a way to get the zune to work as an external harddrive, but there's no drive letter. Is there a guide anywhere to let zune work on USB Loader?

    I don't think a Zune will work, and as far as I know you can't get iPod's to work either, if you can please tell me, and i'll use comparison methods for my Zune, and I'll send a tutorial to you.

    I would be willing to test it out on a Zune 30. The problem is I am on vacation and my Zune is 2000 miles from where I am. I assume what you would do is use the hack to use the Zune as a potable hard drive on windows. Then use Gibbed's WBFS tool to format it. Add an iso with WBFS Manager. Then try it out on the loader. If anyone tries it tell me the results. Thanks.

    zune was microsoft's weak ass attempt to fight ipod.
    needless to say, it failed miserably.

    I don't think so. I think the reason the iPod is still on top is because it was out many years before the Zune. The Zune didn't fail, its just not that well publisized. Maybe the ZuneHD will change that. Plus the Zune pass is a way better music service that iTunes. Anyway this thread is not for people to fight for which is better. It is for trying to use the Zune as a hard drive for the USB Loader and if you want to argue about which one is better I suggest you make your own thread for that.

    when ms launched zune, they said the expected/desirable sales figure (can't remember the exact number of course) but it didn't even come close to it which can be translated as total failure.
    and they invested so much money into it.

    Again this is a thread to use the Zune as a portable hardrive. If you want to argue then make another thread somewhere else and send me a link. Ill be glad to argue but please don't make this into an arguement thread.

    i'm not arguing at all.. just stating the fact... in fact i hate apple so much, i never owned any apple product in 20+ years of my life... not even ipod.. so there is no point in arguing which is better.. just stating the fact as i said.

    Then we have something in common but it would still be nice if you could keep your facts for another thread and leave this just for the USB Loader.


    Thanks

    When the zune came out, you essentially had two options for buying an mp3 player: A zune, or an ipod video

    Zune was $30 cheaper
    Zune had a bigger screen
    Zune's UI was better (imo, I hate the clickwheel)
    Zune continues to get updates from Microsoft
    Zune's 3.0 UI is super smexy
    Zune has an FM radio built in (I love it)
    Zune can automatically wirelessly sync with your PC
    Zunes can share music, and pictures with other zunes
    Zunes can buy music straight from the marketplace wirelessly
    Zune has better battery life
    Zune has 5 decent games built in
    Zune software kicks iTune's ass
    Zune's have acheivement type medals, records your number of song plays, gives you awards based on your dedication to a particular song, artist or album

    THE IPOD VIDEO HAD NONE OF THAT

    So when people say that Zunes suck, please, please, PLEASE PUNCH THEM IN THE F***ING THROAT

    I've owned an Archos 5, iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano and Zune 30

    And I love my Zune (The Archos is awesome too, but it kind of in a whole other league)

    are you guys blind?
    no one said zune sucks.
    it simply failed which is true.
    the sales were far far far below microsoft's expectations.
