    hey guys, sorry i dont really have time to search the forums right now

    i turned on my ipod and it wouldnt play so i did a hard reset and now a sad ipod icon comes up with a !

    Not the best way but it works-

    Okay this has happened to me once or twice, and I understand how frustrating it can be, generally I hook it up to my PowerBook-PowerMac, and keep reseting it until it comes up, after that happens you'll need to restore to factory settings and then install the newest "iPod Updater" (something like 3_2005, or something close to that) then go from there with your 'pod using it, and updating/syncing/docking/listening, as you normally do-

    yes it's trial and error but it does work- you may also want to research it on apples support site... (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=61003).

    Hope this helps-

    nothing worked to get it to reboot to the menu.

    so i had to give in and send it back to apple for repair/replace
    i dont get the 31 dollar shipping and handling though

    You're less than 30 minutes away from the Apple Store in Oak Brook. You may as well drop it off there?
