How many people have accidently done something awful to their iPods, and then have them survive? Yes it may sound stupid, but...um...just read the story. Long Story short. I was about to go to Australia. My iPod went in the washer and the dryer.It would only work connected to a wall outlet. I had an awful flight without my iPod. In australia it worked then broke. My cousin opened it up and tried to fix it. Instead it broke.We take it home. Leave in a bag 5 weeks. Connect it to my mac mini. IT WORKED!!!Happy me. It still works to this day!
