"The application has encountered a serious error. The system is now shutting down."
(paraphrasing - but it was close to that)
A genuine, old-school Windows error box popped up on-screen! With the X in the corner and everything!
Unfortunately it was only on there for about 5 seconds - I tried to snap a photo but the screen had already gone blank by the time my camera app launched.
Anyway, yeah, the supreme quality of MFT continues to impress...
Hey, TiPilot -

Has this issue occurred since? Which software level are you on?

My current problem is that it no longer reads my zunehd, but has no problem reading my slower zune 120.

I'm really sick of this garbage. It's literally shocking Ford put out a telematics product this bad, and its even more shocking it gets hardly any coverage in the press.
Have you tried soft resetting your Zune? If not, I recommend it:

Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. You will not lose any stored data.

I suggest performing a Master Reset if you haven't done so already. Here are the directions:

Let me know the latest.
