Vans Skull Slip On Beige sadly

o full functionality, then the problem lies deeper and more drastic steps are needed.Step 2: Restoring to factory conditionsIf your iPod worked fine the day you got it, but is now acting possessed, then it s possible it has a problem with its file structure or software. This cannot be remedied by resets, as the problem is static between boots. This means that the problem has to be manually deleted from the iPod, which, sadly, means it will take all of your content with it.Fortunately it s a painless process,Vans Skull Slip On Beige, and if you keep your iTunes updated, then re-syncing after a restore brings you up to speed quickly. To really make this go well,Vans Canvas Chukka Boot, you should make sure you ve got the most recent version of iTunes installed.Plug your iPod into a USB port, just as you would to sync with iTunes. When it shows up in the left-hand pane of iTunes, you ll see a button in the main content window that says restore. Click it. You ll be warned that you re going to erase everything, but you know that already. Select Restore and Update to kill the troublesome code in storage and bring it up to the latest factory settings. This works. After it s updated, it s simply a matter of syncing with iTunes, and you re hopefully good to go.Step 3: Minor surgeryIf your iPod is still giving you trouble at this point, then it means you ve got a hardware problem. That folder icon means your hard drive is having a physical problem that s stopping the iPod s processor from getting to the data it needs. This problem is common, and contrary to what you might think, it doesn t always mean that your hard disk is hosed. In fact, it s our experience that this easy trick will fix most advanced issues for free and in about 15 minutes.You ll have to open up your iPod for this trick,Vans LXVI Variable Black Grey, so if you re squeamish, you might want to default to a gear-minded friend. Even if you re not, you should have a look through the detailed step-by-step guides at iFixit to get an idea of what s ahead. A wrong move could render your iPod dead for good.While the guides recommend a special plastic iPod opening tool, you can easily substitute a flat-head screwdriver, though you risk gouging your iPod s trim. One tool we ve used that worked out nicely was a sturdy plastic guitar pick, but anything firm and fairly thin should work. The iPod is basically held together with industrial glue. Starting at the side, work your shim around the exterior of the iPod where the metal meets the plastic. The two main halves should then separate with little more than gentle wiggling.Remove the metal back of the iPod to expose the innards, but not too much: there may be a very important ribbon cable that connects the audio jack and hold switch to the main body that is a complete pain in the ass to reattach if it becomes detached. Don t do that.The foam-covered metal unit at the very top is the hard drive, and probably your problem. First make sure all the cables to and from each component are secure. If so, then we go to the magic. These hard drives get warm as they spin, and the metal casings warp outwards. Some hard drives won t work correctly when the casing isn t secure. The solution is to put the pressure back on the disks.Find a business card or similar small piece of paper (here I used a bar coaster), and fold it to be about 1/16th of an inch or so, and rip it to be about a 1-inch-by-1-inch square. Place it carefully on the hard drive (watch out for those ribbon cables), and replace the backing.Using the reset steps above, reboot the iPod. Chances are, it ll boot up nicely and work just as it did before without any problems. You may have to restore it again, though, as the former problem may have prohibited that fix. If you re skeptical,Vans Checkerboard Slip On Green Black, and you should be, try it out. I tried it first on my girlfriend s busted-ass iPod has really worked on six of the seven broken iPods we ve tried it on, with the only hold-out sadly requiring the next step.Step 4: Major surgeryIf nothing else works, and the hard drive is still not working correctly, then it s probably toast. The Achilles Heel of the iPod is the hard disk; th
