so i was uploading music to it last night…finished doing that, clicked on the icon in the lower right area of my computer so that i could disconnect it safely…
the safely remove storage device window came up. when i clicked the drive that the ipod was on, it said ok to disconnect or whatever. i look at the ipod and its acting crazy. it goes to the apple logo, then turns off, then goes to the apple logo again (repeat x ad nauseum). i disconnected it from the ipod to usb cable and tried to turn it off. that didn’t work. i tried to press every button on the ipod. that didn’t work. eventually i got it in disk mode.
now what? if i take it out of disc mode, it goes into an infinite restarting loop. if i leave it in disk mode, it loses its charge, dies…then if i recharge it, it remains in disk mode. if i take it out again, it goes back into that infinite loop bullshit.
any help? has this happened to anyone before? i haven’t had this ipod for a year yet, no warranty on it…this is my third ipod. i didn’t drop it, etc. etc.
plz tell me what i need to do, step by step, to get this thing working again. i’ve tried googling it and i haven’t found any helpful suggestions. am i going to have to send this thing back to apple?
