    i recently restored my ipod to factory settings and now it says it needs to be connected to an outside power source to complete the restore. the only problem is I no longer have the cord to hook it up to the power adapter, the firewire cord. all I have is the adpter and the usb cord that connects the ipod to the computer. Is there a way to get around this or is there a cord at wal-mart i can get for it? or something? I dont live near an apple store.

    please help

    You'll need to find/buy an AC charger. Call up a local Circuit City/Best Buy/etc and see if they have one. I'm assuming you have a 4G or 3G iPod, correct?

    At my local Best Buy, they have iPods on display and they have an iPod cable to chage the iPods on display so that they can be used all the time. I would just go in to the store and plug your iPod into that cable just to get it to update, instead of buying the charger for that one time. Heck, I bet if you just asked the workers they would let you plug your iPod in somewhere. They also have tons of speaker systems, maybe try plugging your iPod into that.

    Sorry, but there's nothing that can be done until you find an adaptor. :eek:
