Zune – Zune is frozen and the company is doing all that it can to solve the problem.One Zune user said:
“My 30 GB Zune froze out of sleep mode.It wasn’t on the charger or connected to my computer. I turned it and rebooted, which isn’t all that uncommon when I’ve turned it off. However, this time it didn’t complete. I wonder how Microsoft is going to provide a fix for this because my computer doesn’t recognize it as connected when I plug it in.”
Microsoft released the following statement:
“Early this morning we were alerted by our customers that there was a widespread issue affecting our 2006 model Zune 30-GB devices (a large number of which are still actively being used),” Microsoft said in an e-mail. “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. That being the case, 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 30-GB 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.”
Below are videos explaining how to fix the Zune frozen issue.
That’s all we have for now on Zune.
