all's well!

I didn't mean to leave you all hanging, awaiting news of the fate of the gumstick iPod shuffle lamented in the post below.

Good news!

Walked from the apartment to the Apple Store (over 1hr) last Fruiday, and went up to the Genius Bar, where we told that we might have to wait a long while if we didn't have an appointment, but we only had to wait like 10mins.

They plugged the bugger into their computer and hey, it was recognised!

The bugger got reset, of course: all songs lost, but that's not a big deal because the are stored in Kosh's laptop, it's only copies that get loaded onto the shuffle.

There had been some other files on there too (it can also be used as a usual USB stick) - but since Kosh hadn't touched or bothered with them for over 2 years, figured they weren't anything we'd miss.

They loaded some songs onto the now-functioning thing - all seemed well.

Made our way back (took the el back in - enough walking for the day!), plugged the shuffle in, and hey, *now* it's recognised. So I've loaded my playlist back onto the thing.

So far so good.


My thanks to all who provided support and suggestions during this difficult time. I appreciate it all :)

  1. Congrats on getting your shuffle fixed! I have an mp3 player, and I would be lost without it - especially on my running days.

  2. Hi!
    Congratulations on your recovery. Last year is a bad year for me. Almost all my gadget left me... Uhuk2...

  3. So glad you got your ipod to work. I have an ipod video that started behaving badly. Songs were distorted and it stopped working even though it was charged. Thankfully resetting it did the trick and it works perfectly now. Knock on wood.

  4. It's a Born-Again Shuffle! Resurrected at the Church of Mac! Woo hoo!

  5. I can't believe you walked one hour in the cold! Ahhh!!! You're brave!

    I am happy to hear it's working again!
