Which brings me to my next point, anyone know of a good, safe way to make my iPod unworkable so that I may use this BestBuy warranty I bought 2 years ago. PM me if you do...The warranty covers SURGES, so that may be a possibility? Haha. I know its bad to destroy such a beautiful creation...but it has its quirks and I want an iPod Photo.
I actually tried to make an external battery using an altoids tin case and some radio shack equipment, but I ended up messing up my 20GB B/W iPod. I knew that my new external battery pack was going to mess up my iPod but I did it anyway. It ended up shorting the power on the iPod and if you sniffed the bottom power port you could smell that it was burnt. The funny thing was was that I could still charge it through the computer, but not through the outlet. Anyway, I purchased mine from Circuit City along with their extended warranty and got mine replaced and bought the 30GB iPod Photo, since I wanted color but they are all now color. Now they have the 20GB Color which would have been the one that I would have purchased. But, the 30GB has the same dimensions, just extra 10GB which costs $50, lol. Well, yeah, that is my story. So try to short circuit your iPod and return it and get a new color one
