Frustration to the Nth Power

Yesterday was a uneventful day until my MP3 player arrive. Then the "fun" (not) began. To my horror the instruction booklet was missing!!! So I plopped the Start-up CD in the ole 'puter and started there, thinking to myself that I'm smart enough to figure this out. After getting to the point were it said to attach the miserable thing to the computer I thought I was on a roll. Boy was I wrong. The first thing it said was to download the latest version of the software on the web site (now why didn't it come with the latest version?). So since I have dial-up and can't get high speed in my area I had to let the thing run for 5 hours. So after finishing that wait, it started installing, which took another 3 hours. When it finally finished I was set to transfer music and pics to the player. IT WOULDN'T SYNC!!! I retried it several time and then gave up and went to the website where I ordered it and went through another 1 1/2 hours completing all the forms and getting a return shipping label from them. This thing is going out in today's mail. What a bummer. I will just have to make a trip somewhere and buy one local and this time I will really check things out and make sure all the stuff is in the box. So much for my excitement of finally receiving it.

Think that was enough complaining?

Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!!

Bummer. Hope the HRM is a happier delivery. I have trouble with my MP3 player not synching either. Hopefully you will get a new one that works nicely for you.

That totally sucks!!! I'm sorry! The nice thing about iPods is that they're very user friendly, you just have to pay a lot more of it...

I hope you find something that actually works for you! Sorry to hear about the trouble. :(
