View Full Version : sad ipod screen of death!!!!

May 9, 2004, 01:29 PM
Here's how it happened. As I was getting out of the car, my ipod slipped through my hand and hit the hard pavement. I immediately pick it up and turn it on and everything works fine. 5 minutes later it gives me the exclamation sign with the picture of the folder. When I plug it into my computer, it won't show up on my desktop and I get the sad ipod on the ipod screen. Also, it doesn't make any noise like it normally does.

Is my poor ipod done for? Is all my data gone? Can apple or any other 3rd party fix it?

It's been gone less than 48 hours and I'm almost ready to drive to the closest apple story and buy another so I have so much down time.

Any help will be appreciated.
