Installing downloads for my Zune


I have a MP3 player called a Zune, its made by microsoft. I went to the website, zune.net, to download the setup package so I can keep all my music on my computer. Once that was done it showed up in the downloads list. I right clicked on it and opened it up. Then it says this link needs to be opened with an application. I get lost from there. Please help. This is my first time with linux and Im in college.

You can't use a Zune under Linux, sorry.

Probably not going to work. The zune managment software doesn't work with wine.

You will want to keep an eye on the libmtp page for any news on compatibility with the Zune, but I don't believe they have made any progress in years; they are working on perfecting other MTP players (like all of Creative's players).

Installing downloads for the Zune

Here's how you could use the Zune in Linux(Kinda) it involves something called virtualbox(Free) or VMware(propertiary).
I would download virtualbox using apt-get or yum then
use it to install a copy of the Windows Operating System. Currently there are no Linux-only ways to do this.
