you don't use zune for wp8.

just connect your device with a usb cable to your pc and it should auto--detect, then auto-install the drivers and then you can just go to "My Computer" and you will see "Lumia 520"

it will show up as a drive and you can just drag and drop mp3/docs/etc to your device now.

It's important to have the phone not under lockscreen when you connect it otherwise it will not show up!

There is no drivers. Windows Phone uses MTP, a protocol supported by Windows XP SP3 with Media Player 10 or better. That said, XP is rather flakey on this so if at all possible get to Windows 7..

If it was that easy why didn't that work for my 521? And zune is still not working with my Lumia 521!
