On Friday I saw my iPod sitting on the shelf in my bedroom and decided to synch and charge her up.(I don't know why my iPod is a her-it just seems that's what she is.) It had been a month or two since I've used it in the car and since James and I have been cruising over to the park lately, I thought it would be nice to listen to. I'm just about sick of all the songs on the radio these days too.
When I plugged her into my computer and turned her on, I was greeted with this:
The iPod sad face of death!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I kept hearing this clicking noise too. I tried all the magic reset tricks I learned online with no success. I've had my iPod since before Jake and I were married! She currently holds 3807 songs/17.34 GB. I couldn't lose her! Quickly, I unplugged her from the computer and tried again and miraculously got her out of the sad face and to the music menu. When I plugged her into the computer to try and synch her-the clicking started again. What is going on? So I turned her off and took her out to the car with me.
James and I were going to the park. I plugged her into the car charger and connected the tape adapter. The menu came on and so I selected music (Rascal Flatts) and hit play. No sound came out. I unplugged the charger and the music started. Hmmmmm. I waited five minutes and then plugged the charger back in and she continued to play. Thank God!!!!
Today I plugged her back into my computer and crossed my fingers. My PC recognized her and synched right up. Phew! I was so worried that she was a goner. I think that because I hadn't used her in a few months and her battery was critically low that it somehow messed up her system. What ever the case-I am glad she is back to normal. Sad that I'm this attached to an electronic device isn't it?
