Hello I am one of the experts here on Just Answer.com
So I understand you would like to transfer all the music from your zune to your laptop correct?
Have you installed the zune software program on your windows 7 computer yet?
Alright so do you have the zune currently connected to your computer
Ok Launch the zune software
that you installed, then turn your zune on if it isnt on already
you should see an option to do a reverse sync so that the songs copy from your zune to your computer do you see that
Alright one second
Alright have you tried go to device -> music. From there you can copy music to your collection by dragging the album/songs/artists to the little computer icon in the bottom left corner
I have in excess of 750 albums that will take forever
Do you mind checking to see if that works for you though so we know it is working correctly
just try it with one album
yes that works
Ok now that we know that works you can try this In the zune software select Device then music right click the songs you want or do a select all and then hit copy to my collection
how do I select all
try hitting ctrl+A on your keyboard
thats the ctrl and the A key
just brings up first artist alphabetically
OK try selecting them all by clicking down the left mouse button and holding it down while you select all the music
One second trying to see if there is a reason ctrl+A wouldnt select all
The other option is to hold down the ctrl key while you select each album but as you said you have a lot of albums so that could take a while
You should be able to do a ctrl+A to select all try doing it like this click on one song/album and press and hold CTRL then press A to select all. after highlighting song/songs either right click and choose copy to my collection or drag them to the computer symbol on the bottom left corner.
that works but it isnt very satisfactory there has got to be a better way surely
Yes it isnt fun having to do it by single click please try the steps i just listed to do a select all
that should work as it worked in my zune software
did the last set of steps help you do a select all?
you know what I think we might have lift off

were you able to select all and get the music to start transferring?
yep its bubbling away now thanks for your help
