I just tried to turn mine on and it's stuck at the loading screen.

Anyone else have this problem?

Well mine worked just now when I removed it. When it stops working is when I stop all kinds of Microsoft products within 5 feet of myself. How is going to 2009 on devices going to screw up something out of no where?

Its a leap year, so someone programmed something wrong in the zune's firmware dealing with this extra day. It's like a y2k bug.

Well just open it up and remove the battery. I had to open mine cause it froze and reseted on me every few mins for 2 hours every day before it would work right.

My iPods work just fine they should have just kept on the old firmware which allows for playlists on the device instead of the gay ass now playing.

Well you need a knife, and a very small screw driver.

The cover fits back in and after you open it for the first time every other time will be butter.

Again its just the 30GB thats the only one affected. But mine is working alright. Ride The Sky take the battery out for at least 30 seconds then put it back in.

Valo, I did that last night. Don't do it. Mine refroze after taking the battery. So instead of it starting working at 6AM CT like the rest of them, mine will start working 24 hours after I last took the battery out. Which will be at around 9:30PM CT

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.
