Yet, the Zune does have a lot of things going for it. Think first-generation i Pod with a 30GB hard drive inside. Zune’s interfaces (the controls you use) are very well thought out. And the most important thing – the Zune seems to work as advertised.For those of you who are into numbers: Zune is 4.4 by 2.4 by 0.6 inches and weighs in at 5.6 ounces.After pressing and holding a few buttons, I decided it was time to hit the Internet.In the first page, I came across this blog entry that did just the trick.
However, the syncing and updating problems I have experienced with it are driving me nuts!
In fact, syncing is even SLOWER than it was on my laptop, even though my new desktop outperforms my laptop by leaps and bounds.
I started an initial sync last night, expecting it to finish by morning, and was horrified to see it was only 40% complete, 12 hours later. I hate the thought of going back to i Pod, but if I can't find a solution to this problem, I may not have a choice. I can transfer from my USB memory stick at 10 mb/sec and my external USB hard drive at over 20 mb/sec.
Press and hold the Back button and the up on the pad for a few seconds and the Zune will reset.
This fixed Jenny's Zune and it seems quite happy, connected and charging.
