For those of you that I've complained and whined to about the status of my iPod:
It's working!!! After so much time where it was acting up, all of my songs are loaded back onto it and it is playing them. I couldn't be any more ecstatic.
Part of me wonders if my problems started with my FM transmitter for my car. It automatically charges my iPod anytime it is connected, and we all know that constantly charging a rechargable battery can screw it up. So now I'm nervous to try using the transmitter with my iPod.
Does anyone out there have any sage advice for this girl who wants to listen to her iPod in the car without screwing it up again?
