Gaaah! The silence… The unbelievably annoying silence… I got in the car Saturday to drive to WI for the Water Street Bridge show, and after I got gas, and actually got on the road, I turned on the iPod only to have it present me with this:
ARRRRGH! It was FINE Friday night…
Now in the grand scheme of things, a malfunctioning iPod is not at all important. I’m just used to having all my music with me, and when I want to hear something, it’s right there. I got online and did some looking, and theres a lot of people that experience this, most of the time its caused by a dead battery. I can believe this to be the case, as it did get warm while plugged in to charge, warmer than I ever remember it doing. I tried some of the tricks posted online, including putting the iPod into disk mode. It activated its disk mode charging icon for a while, and after it said it was full. (10 minutes later…) I tried rebooting it, and still got the sad iPod message.
