It will now automatically update media to your collection.

If you want to set your Zune up to have it sync with your collection then click on the Device tab. In the Sync Options menu uncheck the Manual Sync checkbox if it is checked. If you want to upload all of your music files to your collection click All Music located under Smart Sync. If you want to add, individual songs click Music I Choose located under Smart Sync. When you are finished click OK.

Add Music from a CD to a Zune

Put the CD in your computer. Zune will automatically detect the CD and an album screen appears. To rip the CD click the Start Rip button that is on the lower right. At this point, Zune will start to rip the CD. When Zune is finished ripping the CD remove it from your computer. The music will not be added to your Zune until you sync it.

In a few minutes, your music is copied to your library, and you can remove the CD from your PC. The next time you sync, the newly ripped songs get copied onto your Zune. Now you can enjoy your music anytime, whether it’s on your Zune or your PC.
