I purchased a refurb iPod classic 80GB from Apple. In about three months it began to act strange. I plugged it in to a USB port on my computer to charge the battery (which was very low at the time). It repeatedly failed to mount in Windows or iTunes. The next day when I plugged it in to the USB port it would only flash for a minute before saying "OK to disconnect". It was broken. I sent it into AppleCare and even bought the extended warranty. I got it back in the mail in two days. They had detected water damage and returned it still broken. I called and talked to a guy several times. He was polite, but REFUSED TO HAVE A TECHNICIAN DIAGNOSE IT ANY FURTHER. This was infuriating because I knew I hadn't spilled water on it. He offered me a coupon towards another iPod, which is used. Now I probably have no recourse. At least I canceled my extended service plan. Since then I've sent the same iPod to another service. They found NO WATER DAMAGE. However, they did find a faulty logic board. AppleCare essentially hid behind their warranty under FALSE pretenses to avoid repairing or replacing my iPod. I know this has to have happened to others. Come on, tell me about it!
