Well, several months back I decided I wanted a Zune 80gig. So, I got online, found out who carried them locally and went and got one. I will have to say it has been a great investment. It is much better than my wife’s 80gig video IPOD. Bigger screen, more vibrant colors, etc..
But, today I started the Zune software to update my Podcasts and found that they would not download. Each podcast showing this error:
EPISODE DOWNLOAD ERROR
Can't download this episode. There could be
a temporary network outage or a problem with the podcast feed.
Error Code: C00D1316
Various Google searches did not return any helpful suggestions.
One said: clear the Zune and Re-Sync. That didn’t work.
One said: uninstall the Zune software and reinstall. That didn’t work either.
Then I made a startling discovery. One I’m almost ashamed to admit. Um, see I store all my Zune content on an external hard drive. And, um, I noticed that that drive was not showing up in “My Computer”. So, I turned it off and back on, it came back. And, then my Zune software started downloading podcasts again. It seems like it wants to actually be able to access the drive where it is supposed to store it’s content. How insane is that?? Why couldn’t it just say: Destination drive not found. That would have been better than: error C00D1316.
So, if you are getting error C00D1316. Try checking your storage location and make sure it is accessible to the Zune software. That may be all you need to do to fix the problem. Let my stupidity guide you.
