I am sooooo tired today! I had a huge problem with our newish iPod Touch.
I was up late on Thursday night … I guess that would make it early Friday morning and I was sorting some music in iTunes and syncing it with the iPod when I got a message asking if I wanted to upgrade to the new O.S.. I said yes, but as it turned out … at that time of night (3 AM) I probably shouldn’t have!
Everything seemed to be going ok at first, but just as the upgrade seemed to be nearing completion an error message came up and the ipod screen seemed stuck with a picture of a USB cord and and the iTunes logo. When I unhooked the USB I couldn’t turn the iPod back on, nothing would happen at all and when I’d hook it back up to the computer via the USB I’d get that same usb itunes image again and nothing else. Also, the ipod wasn’t showing up as being attached in itunes.
I restarted itunes, I restarted my computer, I spent literally hours pouring over support and help pages at Apple and finally after hooking the iPod up to my other laptop at about 8:30 Friday morning did I finally get a message via the iTunes on my old Laptop that stated that my iPod needed to be restored.
Sigh … by the time I finally got my lump of an iPod working again it was about 9:30 in the morning and I’d been up for over 24 hours! Believe me I was more than ready to hit the mattress … trouble was I was so hyped up after not having my iPod work and also after watching all the stuff about the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan that I had some trouble getting to sleep.
Anyway … you’d think that Apple would make sure that an OS upgrade would go smoothly .. I mean my laptop is only a month old and all the software on it is up to date so that wasn’t the problem! Grrrrr! Hopefully the next time I have to upgrade it goes better … I certainly won’t do it in the middle of the night.
