iTunes

Word of warning to anyone using iTunes. The latest version sucks great, big, hairy donkey's balls! I updated it the other night, bought a couple of soundtracks last night, put them on iTunes and then tried to sync my ipod...

iPod got wiped, but not really wiped, it just looked like there were no tracks on my ipod. The files got burried so far down in the directory that it took a lot of digging through hidden files to find it.

But before I realised that, and still thought that iTunes had just completely wiped my ipod, I was trying to resync my ipod. Didn't work at all! iTunes just kept freezing every, single, time, I plugged my ipod in. It'd work fine, plug in the ipod and freeze.

Queue lots of swearing, googling, and general attempting to fix whatever the hell type of cock-up Apple had managed to cause this time with their updates....

...it took me pretty much 24 hours, 15 resets, tricking iTunes into reformatting my ipod (3 times!!!), god knows how many computer restarts, and you don't want to know how many cups of coffee today just to get my ipod back into some form of working order. I basically had to sync in directory mode just to get the majority of my music on there. I'm missing about 30 of my songs (hopefully none of my favourites), they just won't sync onto my ipod, and it won't recognise the videos at all, but I have music back for when I'm travelling around town.

To top it off...it's started making the occasional weird click/thunk noise when I'm turning it off/resetting/switching to directory mode. Add on to that the random freezes it's been doing lately and I'm getting worried. Am really hoping it's not on the way out.

But, yeah, that's been me for the last 24 hours or so.
