My zune 80gb won't update it shows error C00D1249. Please help

My zune shows the connect zune to pc screen and upon connecting it my computer recognizes it and it pops up on the zune software stating "You must update your device before you can use it." When I click install to update the device, appears: "The device has not been updated. Summary of error: The device was not updated. Error Code: C00D1249. I rebooted it and did the whole restart process to the point where it cleared the contents and was followed by "Connect Zune to your computer but then when I did this the same thing happened over again.

What can I do to fix it I have tried to restart the zune and reboot it and nothing has worked so far. I was wondering if it could be one of the components that is defective such as the harddrive or the logic board or maybe one of the cables?

I'm getting lost at step 2. What does this mean? "while press and hold the top of the filling Zune."
