Default Sync Zune Pass Songs to Droid X

This is for anyone who wants to copy their Zune Pass songs to their Droid X without using a download credit or purchasing the song to get rid of the DRM. You will be able to add all of your Zune Pass songs to your Droid X with just a few easy steps. Please note that you will need to sync again when your Zune Pass renews.

The first thing you need to do is connect your Droid X to your computer and select Windows Media Sync as the USB Mode.

After it installs the driver you should get this:




Now, just double click on "Manage media on your device"

This should open Windows Media Player. Just navigate to the Subscription folder and move the songs to the Sync tab and click Start Sync.




If your Album art doesn't appear on the Droid X make sure that you have the Album Art in Windows Media Player since sometimes it doesn't copy it from your Zune folder.


I hope this helps.

Ah this is amazing. This would've made me keep my Zune and Droid but now I can give my Zune to my girlfriend. Thanks for this tip.

Um...does it work on Droid 1? Would there be a reason for it not to?

Probably not, the Droid 1 only presents itself as a USB Mass Storage Device to Windows.

Thanks! I was able to move my Zune music and won't need to travel with two devices. Also, solved my problem I was having with calibre and getting my ebooks moved over to the DroidX.

Seems to be an annoyance in the software.

On syncing, some of my album art doesn't come through. But once I select the song, the album are immediately pops up and then stays on.

For example, I open up the list, go to albums, get generic icon for Album "X". Open up album "X", get list of songs and background image for art. Go back to albums and the generic icon has been replaced by the album art.

I think this has to do with how Album art is managed. I used Media monkey to embed the artwork in each song, rather than separate artwork files, that way the artwork is always with the song, even if dragged and dropped.

I have the same problem. I've been trying to figure this one out and so far haven't been able to figure it out. Any one else have this problem and figure it out? Thanks.

Default zunepass syncing on froyo?

So I used to be able to sync my zunepass music, but ever since 2.2 I haven't been able to, the music won't play (says "license expired" or "no sync rights"). Has anyone else experienced this? or know a work-around?

Default Worked for me - thanks

Found this post and tried it tonight. Worked like a charm, although two songs of the 40 or so I synced said "license has expired" and asked me if I wanted to delete them from the Droid, so I did. I've also got all of these songs synced to my 2 Zunes, so maybe there are limits on the number of devices you can sync to at a given time. The two "expired" songs still play on the Zunes.

Great tip - I had no idea this was possible.

I have not, but in theory it should work. I now have Google Music Beta and LOVE the service. You might give that a shot too.

You say the Google Music Beta works, but I also have it and it doesn't allow me to upload any of the DRMed Zune music to the cloud. Is that something you're capable of bypassing? Otherwise I'm at a loss how having Google music would be helpful to anyone looking to utilize their Zune Subscription to listen to music on Android. If you know how to make it work I would really like this.

DRM free only. I have the 10 songs a month free so I get 10 songs per month to add to the cloud.
