I just dropped my 60Gb Photo iPod in the toilet. Fortunately, after I’d flushed. But now it’s acting funny. I’m hoping that if I leave it alone for a while, it will dry out and be ok. Otherwise, I might be getting that video iPod sooner than I wanted.

My nano made it through the washing machine. It had to be reinitialized with the software, and the battery sensor was flaky for almost a month – it only had two states – “battery full” and “battery empty”.
But even that fixed itself eventually.
Have you considered opening it up to help it dry?

Do you realize how self-incriminating that sounds?
Tina: Solid state iPods are probably a lot more robust than hard disk ones. I’m not hopeful.
Jen: iPods don’t open easily. I understand that the third-party battery replacement places send you a special tool with the replacement battery.
Frank: I’m not sure what you mean. Because I wear it clipped to my belt, I have to take it off before I undo my belt, and put it back on after I do it up, but this time it popped off.
I’m starting to think that you’re not meant to have iPods, Paul. 🙂
