God has finally punished me. I was playing with StinkPad, plugging IPod into it to charge it, but today when I reverted to the OS-X machine, well my beloved miniPOD died. Just simply keeled over. It is the hard drive because the computer cannot find the disk! This is not good – no music for me now. Fred is having the same problem. His IPoD died as well: t’s mixed emotions. I can’t live without my iPod, its that good. But I’m pissed at Apple too that they made a bad one and sold it to me. My sentiments exactly! As an aside i can hear the drive making clicking noises especially after the hard reset. Disk Utility failed to reformat it as well! Sigh!
