Pumpkin Bread & iPod

We are having a bake sale at work to raise money to buy "Angel" gifts for children & seniors.

I had a HUGE can of pumpkin so I made pumpkin bread...two batches.
The mini loaves were first out of the oven.
The full sized loaves. They were really good! (I took one loaf to my group for snacks today.)
My iPod has been on the fritz and slowly having "issues" for about 6 months. Well, about 10 days ago, it appears it died...really died.

I found this website that recommended putting a business card between the hard drive & case. Since the thing is dead and far out of warranty (years), I have nothing to lose. I did get the back off...

Put in a business card.

And back together. The jury is still out on whether it works.
Next step, if it doesn't, I am going to try and find a replacement hard drive & battery. Still cheaper than a new ipod. (Why yes, I am kinda cheap. ;))

Have you tried resetting it? This has helped ours when it's been locked/frozen on the apple screen before:

1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
