I downloaded the new Zune software that was released for the new model. I have the old 30GB Zune. After downloading the new software my Zune freaks out everytime I dock it directly with my computer. It will automatically reboot every 5 seconds, literally. As soon as my computer reads that it is connected it will reboot. I tried uninstalling the new Software and redownloading it, but to no avail. I have also check the female connection on my Zune but charging it directly with my wall charger, and it charges fine. WTF? Help, please?

Re: Zune Auto Reboot
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Importing Content to Zune Software Zune software provides several options to import content. By default, Zune software automatically imports content that is downloaded to the following folders:
Zune software monitors these folders for the current user as well as the folders designated for All Users. When content is downloaded to any of these folders, it is automatically imported to the Zune media library. Zune users can also add a new folder to the list of folders that Zune software monitors, or they can manually drag and drop content from any folder to the Zune media library.
You will have to re-sync it. You cannot just upload the "image" of your old Zune. You will have to treat is as if you never had a Zune in the first place. You CAN transfer your Zune's name and tags, but you can't have it automatically upload all of the old songs onto it.
Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.
