And Now...

Okay I know it's been a while. But get over it.

I'm sitting here loading I-tunes in order to load music on Megan's new I-Pod and I have some down time. An I-Pod those of you who know me may say, but I thought you were at Wal-Mart at 3am the day after Thanksgiving to buy the $88 5GB RCA MP3 player. Yes I was, and I do believe that is the last RCA product I will purchase. I tried an RCA Camera at Easter that I have never been able to work. The MP3 player was an even bigger disaster. It was really cool if all you wanted to do with it was walk around and look really cool, however if you actually wanted to listen to music, not so much. No matter what I tried, or which program I used I could not get any songs to load on to the player. Although I know very little about MP3 players I'm pretty good at figuring out computer programs. I found the manual on the installation CD which told me all I needed to do was drag and drop songs through explorer, however no one told explorer which placed a big X over the device when I tried to drop on it. Through Media Player whenever I tried to sync the songs prepared and then stopped. Yahoo Jukebox had my hopes up as it when through each song on the Kellie Pickler CD taking a couple of minutes on each one only to come up at the end and say "Problems occured loading the following tracks" and then listed each and every track. That was the final straw and we went back to Wal-Mart where they began with "we have a 15 day return policy on electronics" tried "we can only exchange for the exact same thing and that was a one time only thing" fortunately no hysterics were necessary for a manager to be contacted and a full refund was agreed upon. This worked in their favor as I spent twice as much on the way out with the I-Pod. Hopefully this will go smoother.

I hope she pleasantly surprised when she opened her MP3 player. Oh wait, I ruined that. I also hope that she did not put all of her glitter stuff on the player that you returned. And welcome to the IPod family.

Oh yes I was so suprised ;) lol. Well I wanted to put the bling on but my mom said I should wait to see if it worked so luckily I didn't. And now this iPod is and iPod nano so its pretty pink and I'm too afraid to cover it up w/ the bling stuff so I'm gonna put that on my cell :)

You said you had problems with the songs now being on the iPod at first...well I remember now that when I first got mine all my songs went into the compliation (not sure if that's spelled right) it took me forever to figure out and then once I turned that feature off everything went under music. So if it happens again maybe try that.

Love you

had the same prob. with walmart. However it was the song that was the problem, not the player. They said the same thing, their policy is to not return after xx amount of days, call the factory. Once my son was able to get rid of the bad song, the player does just fine. He now also has one of the remote thingies that you can play the MP3 player through the radio. Just tune into any specified station and the music plays very clear.
