    It's still write-protected when I attempted to move it to my SD card. I didn't just drop 10 bucks on the album so I could listen to it offline.

  2. Music troubles

    So, I was trying to get music onto my OneDrive account, which I was able to do, and then get it onto my Groove music account. But, when I try to download that music onto my Xbox 360, I can't find anything to do that. And I know it's possible, since there's
    a button in the Groove music app that says "My Downloads".

    Anybody got any suggestions?

    Can I import iTunes playlists into Xbox Music?

    I bought into the "vision" of Xbox Music being a central point of music management for my laptop, Surface and WP8. However, the experience has been pretty terrible so far. We've been iTunes/iPod users for many years. We've ripped a ton of CDs into iTunes
    and created a lot of playlists. I thought it should be pretty straightforward to import my iTunes music and playlists over into the Xbox Music world, based on what I've read about Xbox Music. However, I cannot figure out how to make the playlists work. My
    problem is specifically about the iTunes playlists.



    I *am* able to import an iTunes playlist onto my WP8 phone, using the beta version of the Desktop Sync app. That worked really well. But that's really not what I want to do. Ideally I want to import all of my iTunes playlists to Xbox Music on my laptop,
    and have my phone sync with the Xbox Music service, using the playlists and music that I'm managing on my laptop. But I have no idea how to make Xbox Music import iTunes playlists. I was able to export a playlist from iTunes and import it into Xbox Music,
    but it couldn't associate any of the music with the playlist, so it was useless.

    This works really well on the WP8 phone, so I'm not sure why it can't work on Xbox Music. My favorite playlist has about 700 songs on it, and I really really do not want to have to re-create it in Xbox Music. I know that Xbox Music is early and will probably
    be improved, but that's not really an excuse. Does anyone know of a trick that works? Thanks.

    Music through headset on Xbox one S??

    Errmmm.... Can't you just play music using the Xbox Spotify app?

    The music still plays through the headset. That's what I do... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Cannot connect to xbox error when logging in on windows 8 apps.

    I am having this same problem. With Xbox music, AOE: Castle Seige, Microsoft Bingo. It seems that anything W8 app that is trying to log in with my windows account cannot do so. Please help, this is killing me. Can't play music, can't play games... the
    only thing left is just to keep working! I'm on W8.1, standard desktop machine.

    Xbox Music Radio working without Music Pass

    Wow, this is pretty cool - all you gotta do is go into Xbox Music on your PC, try and create a station, and it will give you a few options such as a free trial or what the OP is talking about above, which is the ability to sync your collection to OneDrive
    and Xbox Music- this allows you to play your music on any device via Xbox Music. I'm currently transferring files to make this work, though, so I can't readily confirm if you can listen to music you don't own like the OP says, but if so, that would be an awesome
    loophole. :)

    Playing music from browser

    I have multiple devices. I get it now that with Win8 I have to use the xbox music app to listen to music.

    (sidenote: I find the xbox site "music" menu item really confusing. I already have a music pass, and when I click on the Music > Xbox Music Pass menu it takes me to a sales page wanting me to buy another music pass. It's as if it doesn't recognize that
    I already have a music pass. What's the point of logging in if the site doesn't recognize my subscription?)

    Anyway, back on track... I can use Zune on my Win 7 PC and my Win7.8 phone, but I can't figure out anyway to get Zune to recognize my Music Pass. How do I do that with all my Win 7 devices and Zune?

    XBOX Music Pass cannot play songs downloaded because I do not have the rights to play content.

    Mr Parks, it's good to hear from you. I'm happy to report that my Xbox Music service is now miraculously working perfectly, both streaming music and downloaded songs. I can't say what happened, but I didn't do anything else except deleted the songs from
    my devices as I told you before, and I did that simply by deleting each song in the "Oma musiikkikirjasto" (in Finnish, that's something like "My music library") view on both devices. I did't uninstall the Music app from either (btw, in Windows Phone, there
    seems to be no way to delete the app!).

    So now I'll just send a big Thank You to you guys over there, and continue to enjoy my music. :) :)
