Gotta 30 GB Zune? You may have a paperweight...

Link to Engadget article

If, for some reason, engadget makes you soak your diaper just google for this...it's pretty widespread.

Cliffs Notes: 2006 model of the 30GB Zunes are bricking...firmware bug. Can you say "y2k-like"?

Then all you have to do is pull the batter for like 10 minutes, drain it, then charge and you're good or something. Funny how they used a different cmos/clock driver for the 30s and that's what effed the 30's up. *shrug*

Didn't the Zune feature a non-user accessible battery like the iPods? That "fix" may be easier said than done. Gotta love unhandled conditions in code that make it out as a release version...

No, it was a bug on how the thing handled leap years. All the zunes are fine after a day.

Shouldn't be, considering that it's the 2006 Zunes doing it...

But yeah, sounds like Microsoft. Only thing that could make them fail harder would be to come out with a mediocre MP3 player that sells on the basis of fashion and to a huge fan base that would eat the vomited fecal matter of Bill Gates, ifunowatimean.
