About a week ago, after a bit of troubles that were fixable, my iPod finally called it quits on me. Oh, it turned on and everything, but it refused to play music and videos. I tried ye olde restore, and that seemed to work.
Oh, wait. No it didn’t. All it did was clear the thing of music after telling me that my iPod was corrupted.
This was, in one way, neither better nor worse than what it was beforehand. Either way, I was left with a $400 piece of equipment that played a generic group of iPod quizzes. Yeah.
Took it back to the place my parents got it from (it was my 21st birthday present) and after a few false starts (I brought it back in because it would not work, you’re gonna have to do more than just recharge the thing) it’s finally being checked over properly.
Let’s hope my baby gets fixed, or I get a replacement, because it’s a lonely life without it. My comp is crap so running iTunes while using any other program causes it to go super slow (Yoda forbid you try and run iTunes and Firefox and OpenOffice at once), and most of my music is just mp3 files, so grabbing my old CD player leaves my music collection rather limited.
I want my baby back.
