Just when you think....

everything is going okay, I am going to be fine, and nothing can stop my positive outlook, I discover while getting my chemo bag ready for Monday that Mason somehow volume control locked my ipod with a combination that I don't know. So, I calmly go to the online manual and discover that it isn't so easy to fix. Seriously, it is an ipod not a FREAKIN' financial institution. It locks so well that you have to restore the entire software and lose all my songs (because my girlfriend who set it up for me is the "primary computer" yada yada yada). National security is not so well protected. So, I started to cry - sob actually. Nolan was down for a nap and Mason is at daycare so I could have a breakdown I guess. All I could think was, I can't go to chemo without this and I need to be able to BLAST IT IN MY EARS to drown out anything I need to drown out. I guess my attitude is a bit more sensitive than I thought as I approach the end of my cancer vacation. Six treatments to go and then they say I am done until it comes back.....IF it comes back. So, I emailed my girlfriend and threw my old CD player in my bag - that will do for Monday. A combination lock on volume control........you have GOT to be kidding me.........not thinkin' Apple thought that one through. Nolan should be up soon and make me smile. That will do for me. Have a good weekend and if anyone knows how to break into an ipod let me know! Love, Ang

Steve says to hold the center button and the menu button at the same time until the Apple Logo appears and that should reset it without losing songs.

OK...I put Kelly on this one to see if he could help you out. See the following link which tells you how to download a software which allows you to transfer your ipod contents to the pc, reset the ipod and then transfer music back to ipod. Hope this helps!

Okay - first Mason drives better than me - and now this! I say give the ipod back to Mason and tell him to fix it - somehow I just know that he can!
6 more treatments and it is gone, gone, GONE!
Happy New Year!
