Zune Movies: Things To Keep In Mind When Downloading

by Rashel Dan

One of the best things about the Zune player is the ability to store and play Zune movies. A typical player is about 30 gigabytes and this device can be a serious multimedia workhorse especially for movie buffs and TV show aficionados. The movies are not difficult to transfer to the device either because the software that the device is packaged with makes it straightforward.

Playing Movies – Another great thing about the Zune player is that you can sync the movies to be able to play on iTunes or on Windows Media Player which is the default setting. So what is the problem? Well, when it comes to downloading files, there may be a few things to keep in mind when doing so.

Unwanted Software

If you are looking into investing a little money and time into sites other than the Zune Marketplace for your unlimited download needs, you will have to make sure of a few things. One of these things is that you must know that you risk downloading other elements other than movies when you get these files from third-party sites.

Third-Party Downloads – Downloading from third-party sites exposes your computer to all sorts of harmful software and viruses. You are also exposing your computer to adware, Trojans, and worms especially when you are downloading from free sources and sites that have little or no reputation. What these unwanted software can do is lessen the processing speeds of your computer and corrupt other data that is stored on your hard disk. Keep this in mind when you decide on downloading from third-party sites.


Speed matters a lot when it comes to downloading. This can’t be truer when dealing with Zune movies. Movie files are quite large and so you will want to get these files that are available to serve them to you at fairly large bandwidth levels.

A good internet connection just isn’t enough. The site that you are paying for content has to be able to serve fast upload speeds as well for you to be able to download fast. Free and unlimited Zune downloads are usually parked in areas of the Internet that cannot offer these speeds and this can affect the way that you want to enjoy your Zune.

Corrupted Files

Does it play? Ever thought that your file finished downloading and when you tried to play it on your Zune, it just wouldn’t work? This kind of file is known as either a corrupted or incomplete file. These are the kinds of files that you might expect from content providers who offer free Zune content. This means that you re just wasting your time in downloading large files only to find out that they don’t work on your Zune at all.

Risks – You are also again risking the fact that the files will affect your other PC files and slowing down your PC system. When it comes to movies, the chances are bigger that they are incomplete mainly because the files are much larger. The only way to make sure that Zune movies are complete and working is to download them from reputable sites.
