Windows Phone 7 issue with Zune

I followed these steps to resolve my Windows Phone 7 sync issue with Zune software on my Windows 8 Laptop.

Most of the steps are same from this page: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2468307 but my issue wasn’t resolved following all rules and restarting phone with battery removal as well as restart of computer.

Please note: Deleting a certificate can create issues with owner ship of files or data, and just because this solution has worked for me, it may not work for you. Use at your own risk.

  1. Close the Zune software and disconnect your phone from your computer.
  2. Open Certificate Manager. To do this, click Start, type certmgr.msc in the Start search bar, and then press your Enter key.
    Windows 8 users:
    On the Start screen, type Certificate, tap or click Settings in the right column, and then tap or click Manage computer certificates.
  3. In the pop-up window, tap or click the Personal folder in the left column, and then double tap or double click the Certificates folder in the right column.
  4. Click the heading that says Issued By to sort the column, and then look for one or more certificates that read "zune-tuner://windowsphone/...".
  5. Right-click the certificate file and click Delete.
  6. Make sure phone is not connected to the computer, if it is then disconnect it.
  7. Connect the phone to computer and after the Zune software opens, all items will start syncing.

Following these steps resolved my sync issue with Windows 8 laptop.

Have you registered domains and don’t know what to do with them? Or did you registered the domains with hyphens or numbers rather than word so that others may not steal your brand? Well now you have a solution to use those domains and put your domains to work for you.In this series I will be posting many solutions for you so that you can pick and choose the solution that works for you.The first and simplest solution is to have a landing page with basic text. Second, to put the landing page to work for you, you need to add a some links, and these could be called referral links or affiliates text links or banner links. As for as the rules and best practices of posting referral links or affiliates links, I will have to post an entire blog on the topic. For now, set up your domain to have a landing page, a page which is not the default from your domain registrar.
