    Default 30 gig Zunes freezing up all over

    It made it to cnn.com about an hour ago. Happened to mine. No explanation yet. Freezes on boot up. Go to zune.com/support in the forums. The pages are climbing one a minute easy.

    I have an 80 gig zune and have not had any problems. I have heard that the 30 gig zunes will freeze from time to time.

    Do a google search.
    ((Just My Two Cents))
    And thats about what its worth.

    I just moved & mine is still buried in a box somewhere, but my cousin just turned his on & it freeze up on him.

    He did a quick search & found , which worked for him.

    Good luck, folks.

    This is from Zune.net:


    My Zune 30 is frozen. What should I do?

    Follow these steps:

    Disconnect your Zune from USB and AC power sources.
    Because the player is frozen, its battery will drain—this is good. Wait until the battery is empty and the screen goes black. If the battery was fully charged, this might take a couple of hours.
    Wait until after noon GMT on January 1, 2009 (that's 7 a.m. Eastern or 4 a.m. Pacific time).
    Connect your Zune to either a USB port on the back or your computer or to AC power using the Zune AC Adapter and let it charge.
    Once the battery has sufficient power, the player should start normally. No other action is required—you can go back to using your Zune!



    Mine's frozen, too and I'm following these instructions, but I really don't get it.

    More info. Just found this on another site:

    ...

    "Update - 2:20pm PST]

    Hi guys,

    I just got an update from the team that I want to share with you. Great news! It looks like this issue will resolve itself over the next 24 hours. Please read the response below. Thank you all for your extreme patience with this!

    -Matt

    =-=-=-=

    Early this morning we were alerted by our customers that there was a widespread issue affecting our 2006 model Zune 30GB devices (a large number of which are still actively being used). The technical team jumped on the problem immediately and isolated the issue: a bug in the internal clock driver related to the way the device handles a leap year. The issue should be resolved over the next 24 hours as the time change moves to January 1, 2009. We expect the internal clock on the Zune 30GB devices will automatically reset tomorrow (noon, GMT). By tomorrow you should allow the battery to fully run out of power before the unit can restart successfully then simply ensure that your device is recharged, then turn it back on. If you're a Zune Pass subscriber, you may need to sync your device with your PC to refresh the rights to the subscription content you have downloaded to your device.



    Customers can continue to stay informed via the support page on zune.net (zune.net/support).



    We know this has been a big inconvenience to our customers and we are sorry for that, and want to thank them for their patience.



    So it's a leap year thing.

    Mine's up and running after the freeze-up. (Z2K9)
    I followed the Zune instructions and it works fine.
    Weird little bug, that.

    Dno how many programmers we have here, but supposedly this is the offending code:

    http://www.zuneboards.com/forums/zun...-isolated.html

    Personally, if I wrote this I'd be most concerned with testing 2/28, 2/29, and 3/1. To be honest, I can't claim it would immediately come to mind to test 12/31 in a leap year. I'd like to think that if it were this crucial, I would run through and throw every date at it and catch this.
