Q:

Here’s a hypothetical question regarding AppleCare for the iPod: Let’s say, for example, that my three-year-old grandson throws my new iPod with AppleCare into a swimming pool… would it be covered by AppleCare?

- Jerry

A: Unfortunately, no. AppleCare is exclusively an “extended warranty,” meaning it only extends Apple’s liability for material, manufacturing, or other hardware defects not caused by the user. This is noted in further detail in AppleCare’s Terms and Conditions (PDF)... See Section 2-e-v.

For comprehensive, kid-proof protection like you’re looking for, you’ll need electronics insurance from SafeWare or a similar company.

I have a 20GB ipod.  I had about 3,000 songs on it and my hard drive.  I had a bunch of viruses on my computer and decided to reformat, losing all of my songs.  I didn’t mind because I still had them on my ipod.  That is, until recently.  I was adding new CD’s to my computer and tried moving them over to my ipod but it appears as if I replaced my 3,000 songs on my ipod with the songs from the new CD’s (about 40 songs).  I would appreciate any help in resurrecting my old library of 3,000 songs on my ipod.  I’m holding out hope because when I plug my ipod into my computer, it appears as though I am using up a lot of GB’s.  The amount associated with over 3,000 songs as opposed to 40 songs.  The problem is that they do not appear on itunes or on my ipod but they seem to be their.  Please help.

My iPod freezes on certain songs. It looks like it is beginning to play the song, but instead it freezes and the light stays on. I have tried reseting it but it never does. I have to wait until the battery dies before I can actually listen to it again! It is sooo annoying is there any way I could fix this problem? Please help!!
Thanks
