Windows 7

I have the Windows 7 x64 Version and installed the Zune 3.1 x64 Edition. The software itself is working fine but if I try to sync my Zune after some few seconds the Software gives an error and the Zune is not really disconnected but the Zune Software can't find/use it anymore until I replug the USB-cable. But then again after some seconds no sync is possible. I didn't had this issue with XP x32. I also tried the "Vista Compatibility Mode" and "Run as Administrator". If I click on "Stop Sync" very fast, then it seems there is no issue, but soon after clicking on Sync the error pops up again.
