In posts else where I relate me be taken with the demonstration of iPod Touch. So much so I ordered one from Amazon as a Fathers Day treat to me. Thursday last[18th] I ordered it. Saturday [2oth] it arrived. Showed great restraint in not tearing into it and carried on with household tasks Then I played, and Sunday I played and Monday- I killed it. Oh my what to do? I know- hop on the bus to Blue Water Apple store. One of the techies took it from me and tried to breath life into it. No Joy- so he made an appointment for me consult with the tech team- earliest appointment? Wednesday 1700 hrs
Wednesday dawned So orft I went to Blue water on the 16.30 bus to Blue Water
Looking at the crowds around the tech desk in the Apple Store- either I am in good company[ Folk breaking their toys] or these things [iPods of all types] break very easily. When my turn came a personable you lady listened to my tale of woe,took up an Ophthalmoscope and peered down the USB hole plugged the device into a lappie and reloaded the firmware -job done. The firmware loaded was a version 2 - so when I got home I upped it to v.3 and now we start over.
She said as I was about to take my leave - no worries- if you are in trouble again and it is the device - we will swap it out no question. So no probs with Apple then. If only some others wrere like this
How did you manage to kill it? I explored all the settings on mine and didn't see a way to do it.
Well now I am glad for you -you have not found how to do do it- in case you try to test it to find out - then where will you be But in the pokery - there was this big red 'Are you Really sure'and thinking 'Data' I said yes But in reality it was the equivalent of a 'Reformat'
