iPod disaster!, originally uploaded by bananasontoast on flickr.com.

While I was updating the software on my iPod, I came to this screen. This is the screen your iPod is supposed to display when it gets to a certain stage in the updating process, when it wants to be plugged into the wall socket to flash the software correctly. I have been looking at this screen for approximately six days and wondering if my iPod would ever work again.

Thanks to a broken wall adapter my iPod never completed it’s software update, but today I had the chance to borrow my brothers adapter and it worked perfectly. Thank god I have my iPod back, I have honestly missed having it so much. I don’t think I realized how much my iPod was a part of my life when I had to struggle with a meager 512mb shuffle for 6 days, which as much as I love it, it just doesn’t cut the mustard when I feel like a larger selection.

    Nice to know your major toy didn’t die completely like a lot of electronic things when you update the firmware wrong. Has the wall adaptor always been broken or is this something you just found out?

    Apparently it’s broken or something, but I had no idea until yesterday, I assumed it was the iPod itself.

    Arr well I am glad you got it working again man. iPod’s rule. I don’t know where I would be without ours… Without our practically unlimited stream of shuffled music. hehe
