    I can't get wireless sync to work. I configure and connect with the Zune software, then I go to the Zune itself and go settings > wireless and ensure it is connected to the network, which it is, then hit sync. It goes through the motions until it says that the sync was successful, but then I check to see if it actually added anything to the player and it didn't.

    How do I fix this?

    I says it was successful, but nothing changes? Weirdness. I would try reconfiguring all of the wireless sync settings to make sure everything's good to go there.

    Zune > Settings > Device > Wireless Sync

    "To configure wireless sync, connect your zune with your sync cable"

    Oh I get it, so it's wireless but you DO have to use cables :rolleyes:

    Basically, they didn't build the wireless sync configuration into the device. You have to configure it wired, then you can sync wirelessly.

    FYI, wireless sync is best used for when you're updating a few podcasts or syncing a new album or two. It will be faster wired.

    But I already did this. I'm looking at it and it says "Your Zune is set up to use wireless sync" and shows my network.

    Is there some way my firewall or some crap could be interfering?

    Is it a software or hardware firewall?

    You should make sure all of the Zune services are allowed full access past it.

    So what's the verdict for me? Blue or Red?

    Go off of these colors. Nevermind the designs. Don't really like any that are offered:

    If you are on a college campus, wait for WPA enterprise support.
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    My friend at Best Buy said if mine ever died, just bring it to him... (he is the owner of the building and manager of the store) and he would deal with MS and I would just get a new ZuneHD from the store... weeeee...

    There should be an "Adopters lead number".

    Like as it stands now... it goes
    1. Flyordie
    2. Cold Storm
    3. DanishDevil
    4. ???
    5. ???

    Weeee

    Oh and Cold Storm, after you put in all your music ect... reinstall the firmware. Highly recommended... or put your music on, THEN update to 4.3, although it may already be 4.3 as they can update the firmware through the ZuneHD's wireless while its in the box. Thats why there is always a small charge applied to the battery when you open the box and try to turn on the device. (oh and so the battery can be tested for its ability to take/hold charge.
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    I will be ordering some stuff from Newegg myself on the 14th... Blu-Ray drive, and another HD5770 for a rig downstairs...

    Maybe by the middle of December, I will have the $$ to buy another HD5870 and a new PSU... and try HD5870 Crossfire... I already have 2x HD5770s and 1x HD5870... so idk... maybe I should just sell the HD5870... :-(
