Percussive Maintenance

I was fussing around with my iPod, and ended up just giving it a ding over the head and plugging it into the Firewire cable.

And the light came on, and then the Apple logo, and then the infamous DO NOT DISCONNECT message. The battery is completely flat, in spite of being plugged in for several hours the other day.

Windows can see it as a disk. iTunes doesn't seem to want to know, though. I'll see if I can sort that out.

In other news, I got a delayed write error on my external disk drive... But that's on the same Firewire card that I was plugging and unplugging the iPod on, so might just be a glitch. Yeah, I'm sure it's just a glitch.

Update: Swapped the iPod to my other Firewire card, and dinged iTunes over the head, and now that's working. And I got a whole bunch more delayed write errors on the external drive, so I swapped that to USB, and now that's working too.

iPod batteries have always been a major problem ... Apple has been sued over this issue.

They are user-replaceable for the adventurous.
