How to reset your zune fireware

If your zune (4, 8, 16, 80, or 120 gig) is starting to freeze more and more and wont load up all the way and uv tried reseting it multiple times and it still dose the same thing? i will tell you how to fix that sittuation.

first of i will have to warn you in doing this you are deleting EVERYTHING from your zune. remember you are at your own risk in doing this and i sugjest that you read the whole thing befor attempting to reset anything
if you are desperate or interested lets beging

step 1. wait for your zune to turn on wile its on you reset you zune
(hold the back button wile holding up on the touchpad)

step 2. once it starts to load the fireware (the screen will show the zune symbal and a loading bar at the bottom of the screen) you must hold the back botton, the senter of the touch pad and the play button. remember to hold all 3 of the buttons once the zune icon apears on your zune.
hold it until a speane apears that says "3 please wait" when that screen apears you can let go of the buttons.

step3 the zune will tehn say to open up zune program and plug your zune into your computer

tip. it is best to have the most updated zune software you can have on there. vistas may not ba able to have the MOST up todate software because of issues with the software on vista and zune 4.0

once you plug it in it will automatically start to download the zune fireware onto you zune. when it has finished uploading the fireware just go threw the zune steps. at this point you pretty much have a new zune. meaning you need to link it to your account on zune and name you zune and the most obvoius you need to re-upload your files and things onto you zune.

note you need an internet conection to download the fireware for you zune.

hope this will help you with your zune issues. this also help if you are desperate and forgot your password but note recomended if you have another option.

Zune Hanging


It's a glitch with Microsoft. All 30 gig units are affected. It's a leap year and the extra day threw the software. Let it discharge overnight and plug into your computer in the morning to load. Microsoft is supposed to have a fix.

zune files deleted


Try enabling your Windows XP to see your Zune as an external hard drive. This will allow you to browse the contents of your Zune and recover any music that might be on it.
Look for Zune Explorer Enabler here:
