Sometimes bugs get fixed in Zune software updates. To get these updates on your Zune, first make sure you have the most recent version of the Zune software installed on your computer. You can check this by running the software and going to settings -> software -> general -> check for updates.
 
Next, connect your Zune to your computer via the USB cable and run the Zune software on your computer. The software will automatically look for a new version of the Zune player software. To manually check, go to settings->device->Devicesettings -> device -> Device Update.
