iPod in a coma. I know, I know. It’s really serious.
You know, I appreciate the homage to the sad Mac icon of yesteryear, but seeing the sad iPod pop up on the screen, knowing that there is nothing I can do about it, makes for a very sad Michael.
This time, unfortunately, it is out of warranty. I did an online search hoping for some answers as to whether my iPod was recoverable. Nope.
I tried the “Hold button on-off, Menu and Select together” reset thing. No dice. I tried to restore it, using both the Mac and Windows versions of iPod Updater. Nada. Bleah.
How’s this for timing, though? Yesterday, someone commented on this blog after their iPod had failed, asking me if mine ever got fixed. I replied that it had, but my co-worker, who had his replaced soon after mine, experienced iPod failure a short time ago. :-(
Looks like a flash-based iPod nano needs to be added to my X-mas wish list. I will not waste another dime on a hard drive-based MP3 player.
