    Can you really describe something 'washed' as 'fried'?

    BTW my daughter washed her green shuffle but it came back to life about 3 weeks later.

    Find you some of those "Do Not Eat" packets or place it near a damp-rid bucket and cover it or something similar (can't describe how as I myself am fried at the moment :D )

    But anything that'll draw moisture out, heck even rice. Let it set and vegetate and keep trying.

    I'd say it is all washed up... try the above stated advice, but I don't think that thing is coming back from ipod heaven.

    Agreed. But then again, my Ipod Nano fell in the toilet. I didn't touch it for about a year. Found it in my closet after I moved, turned it on, and it worked. Then I sold it off Craigslist.

    Maybe I was just lucky. :cool:
