hey, my ipod went through the washing machine a while ago (2 months?). we soaked it in rice for over a week and took it to the apple store, only to be told it had water damage and that they couldn't help (warranty voided). now i have no ipod until julyish when i get a new laptop. i was wondering if i could plug it into my moms imac and see if it is restorable? it has been sitting in my bedroom for a long time mocking me and i really need some music for a trip on friday. if i was to plug the ipod into the computer would there be any risk of damage to the computer or the ipod (at all)? my mom would kill me if i damaged her computer and after a near scare when her ipod froze the other night, i cant piss her off anymore . i have read stories of people reviving water damaged ipods. would it be better to plug it into the wall? is there a risk of shock? it is a 8gb g3 ipod nano. if you have any tips please help! i mainly care about the computer itself though... thanks!
