Did you put Alan Jackson on it?

Beccaberry

I'm guessing it's the battery.....and I don't *think* they can be replaced. How long have you had it?

Dawn

It's a first generation mini ipod so it is old. It's sitting on one of those little speaker things so it should get power from there but it's still dead.

I'M NOT HAVING A GOOD DAY!!!!! :mad:

Hmmmm....yeah, that's not a good sign.

Sorry about the bad day....mine's not so hot either....we've had a rabid skunk outside the school on our playground all morning....and it's getting worse....

:hug2:

Have you googled the problem?

Fingers crossed you have your music backed up somewhere else!

Animal Control had an ANSWERING MACHINE on. So when it got worse we had to call the police department...who, well, yes, put it out of its suffering. I'm sick over it at the moment. It was a baby skunk and it was just suffering so much....anyway enough of that...back to your ipod.

Well this is the thing. It was on the pc upstairs but Adrian reinstalled all that recently so I don't know. :(

According to apple support I have to not touch it for 24 hours and then try it again.

mmmm they're hoping for just enough juice back in the battery to get it going again arent they

If I try and reset it and it works I'll lose all the stuff on there won't I.

I had to "reset" mine the other day (holding down the top of the wheel and the middle button) and it didn't erase my music...not sure if that's what you're talking about....

Dawn
08-07-2008, 04:29 PM
Forget that, it won't reset. I think it's gone. :(

Have you flicked the lock on and off again a ton of times then tried resetting it?
Will apple support not be ablke to change the battery?!

I've done the flicky thing. I do the 24 hour thing now. ;)

Then I'll turn it into a flea, a harmless, little flea, and then I'll put that flea in a box, and then I'll put that box inside of another box, and then I'll mail that box to myself, and when it arrives...
...I'll smash it with a hammer! It's brilliant, brilliant, brilliant, I tell you! :evil:

And here I am looking into getting an Ipod and this happens to Dawn! EEEEEEK

Love that mechanical bull!

Beccaberry

Jon bought me one for my birthday...amidst much angst from him as he hates them and all things Apple (I know Keith, but what can I say? He's cute.)

I love mine. It's pink. What else matters? But it is a bit territorial...it doesn't play nicely with other things sometimes...

I had a Red Nano that didn't survive a dip in the loo. Has yours been in the loo? I have a pink one now that doesn't go in the loo at all!

My phone has been in orange juice twice, I put it in the tortoise egg incubator without any water so that there was a low humidity over night and it dried out!

The girls had one each, both got washed with the laundry, one survived!

It has been a llama, hasn't been in the loo and hasn't been in a tortoise incubator.

It is an ex ipod.

What did you do?

Dawn
09-07-2008, 06:34 PM
A bit of downloading and uploading and restoring and resyncing and a lot of jiggering and keeping fingers crossed.

Easy really when you know how. :D

Will you all make fun of me if I admit that I don't even have an Ipod or MP3 player? :(

I DO have Sirius satellite radio in the car and LOVE it!!!

Tink
09-07-2008, 10:15 PM
I don't have one either Johnie. Nor a Sirius!

I do carry these shiny round things around with me. When I push them into this narrow slot on my dashboard, music issues forth. :yes: Archaic, huh? :lol:

:lol: no, not deprived. I feel so out of the loop about this downloading music.

I can do you one better Tink. I have these really large, black round disks that play old and scratchy music ;)

Ok. Seriously. It took my about two FULL minutes to sort out what you were referring to. Perhaps there IS such a thing as too MUCH technology...

Dawn
