    yesterday my girlfriend dropped my touch from like waist high all that happened was a little dent on the corner (very small) and everything is working fine but afterwards i went to play a video and there was green coloring all over i tried another video a nd same thing. I restarted the ipod and the videos are fine now. Should I be concerned?

    Apparently that's a side effect of some corruption in the device that will tear digital holes in all the media stored on it. Basically it's destroyed beyond repair and as it's dented Apple won't sort it for you. I'd dump your gf if I were you.

    My original reply may be a blatant lie of course.

    haha. Thanks. I was reading somewhere that someone else had a similar problem and fixed with a restart. I'm just hopeing it has nothing to do with the drop.

    Is it useless to get applecare now because even if i bring it in since it has a little dent they will say the problem was because it was dropped?

    400 of them, in fact.


    Might not be such a bad predicament...

    I'd say thats a dumpable offense.

    Expect lots of special attention from her over the next few days. :p

    well I was a real ****** to her for about 2 minutes telling her to remind me to never let her hold anything of value again. But she felt really bad and I was over it pretty quickly. I'm not going to dump her...I'll probably just punch her in the face...that will teach her.

    On a side note. anyone using a 5G ipod pouch that came with the ipods...be carefull they dont fit in there too snug and this is what caused the drop. it slipped out of the pouch when she was holding it upside down like an idiot.

    She is lucky I love her more than my ipod touch.

    anyone know how anal they are about applecare and nics and scratches?

    I'm not sure about that. I've seen women do amazing things with some *cough* electronics.

    Well in that case, lucky it was his girlfriend that dropped it and not a mate, or worse yet, his Dad.

    What?? Another love other than apple. This man deserved to be banned from these forums. My girlfriend knows that i love apple more than her, and I am converting her. Maybe one day we will have the perfect love triangle...

    Break up with her. There are plenty of fish in the sea. Find one that can hold an iPod without dropping it.
