Synchronise Windows Phone 7 and Zune Desktop

Users of Windows Phone 7 have an excellent interface with which to synchronise music, video and images with their PC. The Zune desktop client makes this possible as well as providing a gateway into the marketplace, and makes it possible to purchase and download music, video and apps, particularly useful if you don’t have wireless internet and your network provider doesn’t offer affordable mobile internet.
The Zune desktop client offers several additional configuration tools for your phone, making it an absolutely vital addition for any Windows Phone 7 owner.
However the initial sync must be by USB so with the Zune software running connect your phone to your PC or laptop via the USB cable. The Zune software – a music player, shop and sync manager all in one – will launch, and display the Summary screen for your phone. To setup a wireless sync, go to Settings > Wireless Sync and click Enable Wireless Sync, following the subsequent on-screen instructions until the sync is established. This will save you from having to connect your phone via USB whenever you want to sync data with your PC.
One thing you might notice about Zune is that there is no facility to synchronize a calendar as there is with Windows Mobile and ActiveSync. This is because calendars can now be easily synced wirelessly or via the web, and therefore no longer require additional software to manage these relationships.
A Windows Phone 7 device that has been used to take photos and record video clips will send the clips to your PC or laptop when connected to the Zune desktop client, and these options can be managed in the Settings > Phone > Pictures & Video screen.
