    Its available, or something, to interface with Zune from my app? How/Where Zune store media? What kind of database/library it keeps on it?

    I don't believe there is an SDK available, but if one is released that would rock.  Although seeing as how you can't use the Zune as a portable drive presumably because they are locking the music down I'm not so sure that is a likely scenerio.  But who knows.

    However there will be a "sync" folder so to speak that the Zune software will keep synchronized with the device.  So I suppose you could use that as some sort of integration area for your app.

    You could sync over your local area network, and write an app to interface with the Zune's networking APIs. I've been working on a program that connects to my WLAN and streams music from my computer (currently, it can only stream one file, because I haven't figured out how the XML parsing APIs work yet).

     

    The ZuneHD stores music in the /Flash2/Content folder

    The /Flash2/Content/Artist folder stores Album Art

    The names are maintained in an internal database that is inaccessible by developers.

    It means you added to a thread that's 3.5 years old. Nice one, but I think the original poster probably doesn't have this exact problem any more.
