    lol. I was just looking at this on ABi just now....

    Strangest thing I've seen that happened to an Mp3 player, as of yet.

    I won 2, 30GB Zune (Watermelon Red; Special Edition) from Microsoft's Live Search Club.

    They both work wonderfully. I even installed the new firmware updates and if anything, they're better than they were.


    I spoke too soon. I didn't realize it happened TODAY.

    ZUNE 30GB =

    [​IMG]

    CONGRATS MICROSUCK! you 2K FAIL 9 YEARS LATE!

    STEVE JOBS will be wetting himself over this one BILLY BOY!

    Its confirmed btw due to the date fault users who have disconnected the battery to reset the date prove it boots fine but soon as you connect to PC and it re syncs the time/date it crashes again!

    its only the 30gb Failing apparently!


    edit there's word that ALL ZUNES ARE FAILING!

    Canader.
    My cousin in just e-mailed me and said that his Zune is bricked. Being the "geek" of the family, he asked for help. I couldn't give him any [​IMG]

    EDIT: time to reply with the news Joe posted.

    Seriously, Microsoft didn't consider that?

    Ok, this sounds like some super weird shit.
    All the 30GB Zunes just suddenly stop working? Do you know how fucking scary that is?

    If this could happen; couldn't all of our cars, computers, and such stop working all at one time? [​IMG]

    Maybe I'm reacting but seriously, this is some super weird shit.

    Steve Jobs was really behind it all though. He's in your Zunes, Screwing up your clocks.

    wow how did they figure that one out duh!?

    as above discovered by joe bloggs average user flat battery resets clock hence enables restart resync with pc at right time ie not in leap year it will sync and work fine!

    GENIUS EH? no its logical doh anyone could of figured that out ... oh wait they did just not the part about trying resyncing too soon!!!


    oh well big sigh of relief for ZUNE users until the next leap year comes again eh!? [​IMG]

    maby BILL will get off his fat a$$ and pay someone to write a fix for it!?

    maby in between a$$ing about with YET ANOTHER version of WINBLOWZ whilst still trying to fix the flaws of the first 6 damn crappy versions !!

    /RANT MODE OFF

    ok that's my ranting done for this year!

    Like I said previously, it only affects the first gen Zunes.

    The second gen zunes, such as the flash Zunes, and the 80/120 Zunes, should be perfectly fine.

    some of the 80GB zunes are also experiencing the problem
    but not all, a small %
    might have been some of the first 80GB made

    Not fixed yet, I'm keeping my bet that the real fix will cost money.
