Hi I have just got myself a HTC 8x and im very impressed by the phone, infact its awesome. One major downside however... I had a Lumia 800 and a zune pass all registered on my hotmail account. When I got my new phone I took the time to upgrade my hotmail account to outlook.com, basically transfered the account. Xbox music, xbox SkyDrive, email all work fine under my new account.
Now heres the rub and I don't know if it related to above but when I first plugged my phone into my win 8 pc i had to download a media transfer app as zune desktop is not compatible with windows 8 phone...fine I knew that. The problem is the app is rubbish really rubbish. Issues:
1. It list all of my music but sometime splits albums in 2, half the songs on one album and rest on another
2. When I try to play synched content on my phone it displays an error saying something like "cant obtain license information for this media content and skips the album. I can search the store and download it again directly from my phone and it works. Its as off the qpp is jot pulling the license across for my account
3. Complete lack of any functionality on the xfer app, other than tick an artist and sync that's al you can do. You cant show by album etc...
Is this ms way of forcing you to windows 8 pc as the sync app is more like zune desktop on that.
I cant be the only one who's experience is being ruined by this major issue
