So i have a Usb ipod cable and the metal part that you plug into your ipod/iphones was a little bent. It still worked and detected it on the computer all the time, but i noticed that when i plugged my ipod it sometimes gave me an error. it was a windows error not itunes... http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/7317/56174888.jpg i am now using a different USb cable and seeing if that error pops up. Im just curious though. if my songs transfered and itunes detected my ipod and i only got that error from windows, would any songs i transfered lose quality or be corrupt if i transfered them with a usb cable that is a little bent...no wires are sticking out its just a little crooked at the end... thanks hope i didn't confuse anyone.
