Default My Zune is dead!

For those of you who haven't read my previous posts...I had a defective battery in my first Zune, I sent it in and got the replacement. NOW my NEW Zune is completely DEAD! I was at work and turned it on, selected an artist and an album, and that "working" symbol, or the circle of little dots came on. It did this for 12 minutes then went black. It wouldn't turn back on, I waited and it turned on again. I selected a different album and the SAME THING HAPPENED only this time it depleted the battery. I went to charge it and the dang thing won't even charge. BOOO!!!!!! I hate to say this, but if the next one doesn't last a month, I am goin with an ipod. :'(

sorry to hear about it. luckily your covered under the warranty, so hopefully it'll go good with the next one.
all products have defects, whether its Zune or an iPod, or a Creative.

I got my 1st one from dell also. I had to send it back because there was something wrong with the battery-- it only lasted 2-3hrs per charge. Im guessing Dell got the "spoiled" batch of Zunes.

How many cycles did you let it go through? L-Ion batteries are known to suck at first until they're conditioned...

flick the hold switch on and off then try. That happened to me, but only because I had shut it off all the way. It went back up after I flicked the hold on and off.
