I was very happy with my zune and its software (ebay ftw, for I live in switzerland and there's no releasedate announced yet) and had no problems till the update 2.5.
I updated my software and the firmware of my zune 30 last weekend to 2.5.and after that I tried to sync it again. At 39 % of the snycing-progress it started to slow down. No problem I thought, I'll try it again tomorrow. I tried it again and let my computer do his work , but after 3 hours (the syncing was at 77 %) I canceled it.
I tried it several times but the syncing slows down every time at 39-45%. I tried to restart my zune and the software, I tried every USB-slot and even syncing it over W-LAN, but nothing helped so far. Next step is cleaning up my whole zune and refill it, but I'm afraid of another slowdown while syncing it (in my imagination I'm sitting here in 100 years, still waiting for the syncing to complete ;-))
What should I do, a complete wipeout of all data on my zune? Reinstalling my software only and avoid another update to 2.5?
I'm begging on some good inputs! Many thanks in advance!
- Zune 30, Model 1089 / Firmware 2.5 (1614)
- Zune Software 2.5.447
- OS: Vindows Vista Ultimate 64
I know, doubleposting is bad and is often confusing, but in this particular case I think it's better.
The problem I told in my first post is gone. I'll post the way to do it here for other guys with the same problem.
After I deleted all the data on my zune yesterday the problem was still here. So i decided to delete the firmware aswell. After that I tried to resync it, but every time when the syncing got over 3%, the zune rebooted.
So I browsed on the internet for this new occuring problem. And, thank god, I found a thread here on Zuneboards with the answer to all my problems. ( It was very late yesterday and i had a very important exam today so I don't remember the threadname and/or have saved the link to it) That's what I have done:
I started my zune software and opened the settings. There I clicked on "device" and "conversion settings". Attention, the device has to be connected! There should be an option called "cache location". Check that the HD where the cache-folder is set has enough space to handle 6-8 gb of cache (to be sure that this problem doesn't occure that much)
Then, set the "space used" option to about 6000 or 8000 mb, select what goes best for your HD. Finally clear the history and try again to sync it.
Now it should work again properly.
I hope this information was helpful and wish you a pleasant evening =)

Reason: a case of a fatal error ;-)
mine doesnt work, i still have probs syncing, it goes to 15-25% and shuts off and resrts whenever im syncing, i think the harddrive might be faulty beccause i can get like 50 to 100 songs on there before this prob crops up, maybe its a bad sector or something. ugh... zunes...
