My iPod's died :'–(
Anyone who knows anything about these things – help! It's doing the folder with the exclamation mark thing. I've reset it – still doing it. I've connected it to the PC, at which point it came up saying "Do not disconnect" as per, except it was in a completely different font, didn't seem to be in colour (it's an iPod photo, a year and a half old) and looked like something you'd get on an older iPod. So I went to the Apple website, and it told me to restore the thing, but I can't because the PC's not recognising the iPod – it does nothing when I plug it in except charge it, it doesn't appear in iTunes, and the nearest I've got to it appearing on the PC itself is a message saying "Windows does not recognise this USB device. It appears to have malfunctioned." Yeah, cheers for that…
So I searched further on the Apple website, and it said to set the thing to disk mode. Done – it's coming up with what it says it should say, "OK to disconnect", but the lettering's still in a weird style, though. And the PC still won't recognise it. All the iPod updater software says is "iPod service error", even after I installed the latest software. AAAAAARGH!!!
So given that tomorrow's gone (Alton Towers, woooo!) and Saturday too due to Renegade (unless I go reeeeeeeally early… hmmm) it looks like my iPod won't get fixed till next week… How am I going to cope? And what if it's not back for Tour?! Can't cope without my iPod for Tour, it's the thing that keeps me sane…
Any suggestions gratefully received.
Not only does the West End version of the Lion King have an amaaaaaaaazing flute part (I think they said in the programme they used 19 different ethnic flutes!) but the cowbell part's pretty cool too :)
Anyone want to submit it for MTW…? (Not an entirely serious suggestion, incidentally – I know we wouldn't get the rights and that it would be seriously hard to stage…)
The show itself is amazing though, and both my mum and I agreed it was the best musical we'd seen in a long time. Highly recommended.
