Daniel :

Hello, my name is Dan.

Customer:

Hi Dan

Customer:

Is there anything I can do here?

Daniel :

Is the iPod blank? If it is on the iPod then yes, you can recover it to another Mac/iTunes.


This utility will do it, as will this one.

Customer:

what do I do? I can't open the original library

Daniel :

Tell me about the crash.

Customer:

The computer simple will not boot.....my kids were on it playing games and it was suddenly dead. Perhaps they did not shut down properly

Customer:

I want to put the music on my new Iphone.

Customer:

When I plug in the old ipod to the new computer, it says it will erase everything even though the computer is authorized.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
