This morning, my Zune had reset for some reason. Then after pushing the back button, it went to the startup screen and then completely locked up when the status bar hit 100%. I tried the “Back-Up” reset and that didn’t work. I googled it at 7 AM and didn’t see anything on this problem. Now, at 1 PM, this problem is popping up everywhere. There’s even a name for it now – Z2K9 (Zune 2009).
