    Since Zune won't work, is there another program like it for Windows Phone 8 or is it different?

    Yes there is, try this

    Windows Phone Support | Xbox LIVE, Windows Live, & Zune | Windows Phone 7 | Windows Phone (United States)

    Or, you can use windows media player just as easily.

    It's pretty crappy, be warned. No playlist support and the "syncing" is actually a manual wired transfer.

    Since Microsoft ditched the Zune name, but still has it's technology, why don't they update Windows Media Player to be Zunes successor? I would have absolutely no problem with using Windows Media Player to sort my music, add album/artist pictures and sync my Windows Phone with it. But right now, Zune does that job a heck of a lot better than Windows Media Player. Just merge the two already!

    I know, I'm not saying WMP should be Zune's "official" succesor, but I wouldn't mind it if WMP got the same features Zune has. I haven't seen an Xbox Music application with Zune's features after all...

    There's the new app that's available for both Windows 7 and 8. It enables music, photos and other media to be synchronised to and from a Windows Phone.

    So every time you update the playlist on your computer and want to re-sync it to your phone, you have to make sure to check everything you want on it. I just went to add another album and it started deleting everything off my phone. It's a preview, so I'll wait until the final version before I complain. Just make sure you remember to check each box of each playlist, album, artist, or song you want on your phone every time you want to add or remove music.

    The last thing Microsoft needs is more media software fragmentation going forwards. I like the Zune software far more than WMP but nothing related to Zune (services, devices) ever took off, I believe partly because of such a weird, fragmented message. On Microsoft's own operating system, you have to go download weird software you've never heard of before - not the well-known WMP - in order to sync a Microsoft device?

    I don't really see why the Xbox media services need to be broken into separate apps. If anything, they should be united into one app and that should be the successor to Zune. Makes sense going forwards.

    So far, the new Windows Phone sync has worked the best for me.... (which doesn't say much) When I use WMP, the phone is terribly laggy at loading music (from sd card) When I use this new sync tool, the phone doesn't lag, but if I simply want to add one album, it HAS to replace Everything!!! Which, in my case, with 20 gbs of music, isn't no quick task!!! I seriously would rather use an updated Zune to sync music and to categorize videos. (that's another feature that I can't figure out why they would remove....)

    I don't understand the need for sync, I just get what I want from Xbox Music wirelessly. They really need to get distribution rights for videos to work though.

    I've always have used WMP to sync music. It seems to work fine. What's the down side?

    MediaMonkey.

    I am extremely disappointed in Microsoft's attempt at the WP apps, personally. They give you absolutely no control over metadata which drives me nuts.

    WMP can't sync album art and album titles correctly. I've tried multiple times, but I'm OCD about my music. If it doesn't look right, I'm not putting it on my phone.

    Right, you download on wifi and listen later. I have never physically connected my phone to sync music, I just download everything on wifi.

    Not all of us have the luxury of a home WiFi connection. (I know, right?!) WMP works ok but there were a few tunes I had to DL from the cloud. Streaming isn't feasible for me even if I had unlimited data, as I drive through a dead zone on my daily commute. I'm just thankful I've never broken down in it...

    I use MediaMonkey for all my music and find it to work great. But if you're a long time iTunes user, why don't you just use iTunes to sync with your WP phone?

    When I use WMP to sync music to my phone (I save it on an sd card) the music player is really slow at loading the music to load. I can't even use it, it's that slow. But when I use the new windows 8 app, it works al-rite. Are you putting music on your phone's memory or on an sd card?
