Zune Y2K9 Error

 

for a while i read that Zune OS have at end of 2008 an error on booting regarding some date time issues.

following quiz had challenged the Zune team, as parameter to the function is the variable – days, any idea where the error is ?

year = ORIGINYEAR; /* = 1980 */

while (days > 365)
{
    if (IsLeapYear(year))
    {
        if (days > 366)
        {
            days -= 366;
            year += 1;
        }
    }
    else
    {
        days -= 365;
        year += 1;
    }
}

the error will occur again at next December 31, 2008 :), and zune team post their message here : http://www.zune.net/en-us/support/zune30.htm

have fun with old zune 🙂
