This morning I went to use my iPod and saw this on the screen:
It didn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this situation was NOT GOOD.
When I got to work I looked up some iHelp and it told me that there were hardware damages to my iPod and I would need to restore it back to its factory settings (read: erase the whole thing) to try and salvage it.
I hear you all saying, "Oh, silly KK, don't worry – you can just do that and then update your iPod off of your iTunes library again!"
Oh, naive reader, how I wish that were true.
When my computer died in the fall, I lost my iTunes library.
So, I don't have a library to which I sync up my soon-to-be-restored iPod.
Also? I have one of the oldest iPods on the planet.
It's a fourth generation (were some of you readers even born yet???) that has a click wheel. Old school. Because that's how I roll.
Of course, this also means that I am rolling without ANY songs...
