    I would check out other mention of the Zunes in this forum. They can be problematic.

    I learned something. I think they added a new feature from HELL!Zunes now start up with auto find which trys to find all the tunes from all accessable drives. This makes it unusable if the computer is on a network. It spends most of the CPU time scanning. Once it finds everything things settle out but I could not figure out how to turn off that feature. The solution is to disconnect the computer from the network.

    A MUCH better solution is buy something else. They have spent great effort to keep the player from being accessed by anything but the Zune software. This means you will likely have to buy videos from Zune instead of converting videos you already own.
