So I have an ipod mini and about a month ago the HDD went wonky, and all it was displaying was a folder with an exclamation point on it. I went through some searches and basically all I had to do was use iTunes to reformat it for Windows. I try it several times and it fails each time. So I figured, take it to the "genius" bar. I make an appt for this morning and take the drive up to the store. I get there and tell the guy what icon appears on the display. He tells me that the HDD is gone and I can either buy a new mini, which I didnt even think they sold anymore, for $150, or buy a 4gb nano for $150 with 10% off if I trade in my brick mini. I tell him Ill think about and left. I go home, go to google and found a site where a guy says, if its in Windows, boot the ipod into Disk Mode and it should mount as another HDD to your computer, format it with FAT32 and then connect it. From there iTunes should format it for windows and should be all set. I did just that and it worked perfectly. These jack asses have no clue what the hell they're talking about. I was seriosly considering spending the 150, or 135 with the discount, that I dont really have, to get another just because the so called "genius" told me so. I mean come on, if you're working at a place and have the title of "genius" you should know what the fuck you're talking about. I mean even if he couldnt format it himself, because of company policy, he could have given that to me as an option. Oh well, I'm smarter then they are so I've decided my new title is Super Genius.
