    in the ocean. Yes...doesn't work now. Should i A)let it dry out and try to see if it works? B)Just spend the money for new iPod nano coming out soon? or C)Stop asking stupid questions?

    Tried to plug it in, after two days but it's not registering on my powerbook. Did the salt water damage the battery? Fry the electronics? iPod Shuffle disposable?

    Thanks, Chaz

    I'm curious as to how this happened in the first place. I can understand them going through the washing machine (forgetting to empty your pockets), but how did you manage to get it in the sea? :confused:

    Anyway, try washing it with distilled water, then leave it to dry thoroughly before attempting to use it again.

    I was just reading some excellent suggestions for this in This Thread although they were relating to a shuffle in a swimming pool, apart from the chlorine, I would guess the procedure would be similar.

    The salt will kill it.
