Music stops and zune freezes up

After i got the newest update for my zune 2.3 from my 1.3 the music started to freeze and then the zune will shut off.
video playback is fine but the music seems like the files have been somehow screwed up after the update.
holding back and left doesn't do anything to resolve the problem it only helps to turn it off when the system decides to freeze up.

    a have a new zune 80G, I am on my second one now. The first one began locking up when on my altec lansing speaker dock. The only way to remedy this was to reset the zune thereby losing all my music and having to reload it. I returned the first one and now the second one is doing the same thing. Does anyone know if the dock could be causing this problem. I want to use my zune and dock for traveling but am beginning to view the entire system as unreliable.

    A few days ago my Zune suddenly started tweaking out big time. IF I can get it to turn on, it won't respond to my commands. One time I got it to start playing music, but the sound disappeard part way through the first song. I called Zune support, and the robot lady told me to hold the Back and the Up arrows simaltaneously. The only thing that did was erase all my music, I still have the same problems!

    Ok i got a little 4G Zune and i don't know what the deal is. It froze at the start screen and i though "Oh well i will just hit Back and Up" well i was wrong that doesn't work when it did this. I tried moving the "Lock/Hold" switch around but it responds to this because the little "Lock" at the bottom of the screen will pop up and then the little "Rainbow" symbol thing above it will show up as well but that is all it responds to now

  • tjisthebestb Apr 07, 2009

Uhm i think i may have found your solution, that is if your using limewire or some client of the sort, i synced my zune while the program (limewire) was on and downloading music and i had the same problelm you did so i simply deleted all my music and put it back on the zune while limewire was off and now it works fine, i have an 80 gig btw if that matters

Same thing started happening to me after the update.

i have the 30 gb device and what has worked for me is simply pausing the song that your're listening to before playing a diffrent artist/song.

it sounds annoying but its worked for me.

i delete the music from my computer after syncing it to my zune so i cant just delete and re-sync 28.3 gb worth of music, and would hate to have to download again, so this is the method ive been doing.

Hold the back and up buttons to reset the zune. Next, wipe ot the files in your zune and resync them. Or buy an ipod like everyone else...

When i sync new music and try to play it it plays for 10 seconds then my zune freezes


Wipe the device. Update the firmware. Then re-add all your media (music) and try again.

If the problem persists you will need to contact Microsoft (Zune) about the problem because then you are dealing with a hardware issue and not a software issue. Hardware issues can only be fixed by professionals and support from Zune.

My fm radio stopped working on my creative zen vision, and the display is all messed up. It also freezes for about 20 minutes when I turn it on. After 20 minutes, it will play normal, but it freezes...


Support for Zen Vision M on this site:

One of the Knowledgebase Solutions for "freezing" gives this answer:

Solution ID: 64087
dot-clear.gifSolution ID # 64087 -->dot-clear.gifdot-clear.gif -->
















Player is Freezing
Keywords / Key Phrases: freeze, freezes, freezing, hang, hanging, freezes at creative logo, at docked screen, rebuilding library screen, playing audio files, switching to other functions or menus while shutting down, freezes at recovery mode, freezing at music playing now screen


  1. Gently push the end of a thin object (such as a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole.
    The reset button for your player is located at the bottom of the player, to the left of the sync adapter port.



  2. Refer to the article below to access the recovery mode and perform a Clean Up.

    SID 64088: Accessing the Recovery/Rescue Mode of your Player

    Note:



    1. Clean Up scans a player\'s hard disk/memory card and removes any invalid links from the music library. It does not affect the working music files at all. It is recommended that you perform "Clean Up" first before formatting or reloading the player\'s firmware.



    2. It is advisable for you to clean up your player regularly if you are frequently transferring files from you computer to your player or vice versa.

My zune


If it freezes up hold the pause button and turn it off, then hold down the back button and up on the keypad and it will restart. If for some reason it keeps freezing constantly I suggest you contact zune.
