Microsoft Zune 30GB players crash en masse today

Posted on Wednesday, December 31 2008 @ 20:00:27 CET by

CNET writes many users of the 30GB Zune digital audio player report their player crashes and hangs as soon as its internal clock hits December 31st. Microsoft is aware of the problem and says they're working on a fix.
The symptom is reported widely on discussion boards about Microsoft's music player, including Zune.net, ZuneUser.com, and ZuneScene. With the problem, people's Zunes reboot but freeze when the startup status bar reaches 100 percent.

Some users reported the problem happened at exactly midnight PST, at the very beginning of the last day of the year, leading some wags to call the problem Z2K after the Y2K problem that was widely feared to cripple the computing industry when computer clocks moved from 1999 to 2000.

"It reset itself. I don't know why," said one owner who posted an account of his Zune problem on YouTube after reporting it on the Zune.net forum.
