Against The Grain by: Andy Sullivan
Digital Distress- Christmas 2012, I got an iPod nano. One year and one month later, it’s already full. I didn’t know how to take songs off and put songs on, so I went to facebook. I did know how to perform this function in the old i-tunes, but since they implemented a “new and improved” service, I’ve had all manner of problems.
Forget the fact that i-tunes kept forgetting my login info. I finally got that squared away. My issue now is putting new music on. I watched all the “how-to” tutorials and there is the “click and delete” option that is supposed to be oh so easy. I did that and then plugged in my device so it can perform the task. It made the motion like it was working, so I thought I was in good shape. I unplugged and searched for my new music on the iPod. Nothing transferred.
As I said, first it locked me out by forgetting my password. Once I figured out the problem there (it’s under my old email address that’s not even in service anymore), I was able to buy but couldn’t download to my iPod. I learned about the Cloud, which I never had to use previously, but another issue arose. My IPod is so full that I’m unable to put on new. I perform the action that’s supposed to work; only it doesn’t. After wasting about an hour on Monday and Tuesday working on this, I got so frustrated that I’m honestly thinking of just buying a new IPod and starting fresh.
If anyone has any suggestions, I’m open to hearing them. If you have similar stories, I’ll take those also.
