It's been a bad week, we dropped an iron on the new carpet, leaving a huge melted iron mark, my girlfriend of 4 1/2 years and me split up, and then worst of all i was hill walking on the Yorkshire Moors and i slipped in some mud and fell into puddle of water, unluckily my 30gig iPod was on the side that fell into the water. After rescuing it, it played for a while then there was some cracking sound from the earpiece, some skipping and then it lost all power!!!! After leaving it for a couple of days figuring it was knackered anyway i tried to charge but it refuses. Luckily, it is covered by my home insurance policy and they are sorting that out now. What i am trying to find out is what condition the iPod will be on the inside. When i do a force restart it comes up with a exclamation mark inside a triangle and a sort of status bar. What sort of error is that displaying. Would water have fried everything or would it just be limited to just a battery fault! Anyone else done anything like this? I'm hoping that the insurance company will let me get a new one and (if rumors are true) Apple might just bring a new range out soon.
