Wow. That does sound kinda bad. Just to let you know, I've personally had 3 Zunes (upgraded twice mainly for storage space), and I've never had a single issue. In fact, I'll be purchasing my fourth Zune when the Zune HD comes out this fall. I can understand your reservations about Zune after that, but you asked if it was a fluke, and I'm thoroughly confident that it was. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a bad unit

I've had great success with past Zune hardware. OTOH, their software hasn't always been the best.

Just a fluke.

I have owned a total of five Zunes and now use only two for the memory and have never had a problem with them. What happened to you is most likely a fluke as you said. I just hope that this little problem doesn't prevent you from making future purchases of the Zune franchise.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
