FUCKIN' THING, SUCKS
it will probably work after that.
will all my stuff be lost though?
it retains everything.
thanks for the tip, I'll try this!
carries a paperclip around with them for just such an occurence.
ipods are for absolute gays. Not being an absolute gay I wont use one
until i dropped my zen on a bus several times and it kinda stopped working. and started rattling.
for what it's worth, i still really resent having to buy one as i hate that apple are the only people who make large capacity players, BUT i can see why they're the only ones. it isn't just marketing, they really are better than other brands.
plus, my 80gb has built in solitaire. i'm currently $12,000 up.
even when I try to charge it it doesnt light up or anything
only thing that works is leaving it for a few days and trying again. When it does work again the battery will be completely flat. Why it does this, though, I don't know.
after 2½ years.
Also, the fwd button occasionally chooses to work the same way as the random button and cues up all my music, which is a bit of an arse.
Still like it, though.
OK, now it's HALF working! WAT! The little blue light is flashing whilst it's supposed to be on charge but the screen doesn't light up or anything
just flashes of the bluey goodness. I'll leave it pretending it's on charge for a few hours
I docked it into the computer and it booted itself up just fine.
maybe if I charged it by a wall charger rather than by PC it would be different somehow...it's not showing up on my PC but the blue light flashes...
In that case, do that too. I did.
Though mine's a 3+-year-old model, so yours could be considerably different.
I'll keep you updated, cheers
for the win.
YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED!
you said ass
randomly switches itself off claiming it has low battery, sometimes just goes insane and starts just playing/skipping tracks at random. shame because my old 20gb one was the most reliable thing ever
