Well ... I'm back from my week off. While I was away I got a year older, gained a lawn mower, iRiver Clix, and a Panasonic HDD Recorder. Awesome week!
I also did a heap of tourist stuff in Canberra! My parents were visiting so we spent the whole week doing tourist stuff that I had never even done myself. Crazy how you don't see your own town properly until YOU are showing the tourists around!
Dad's iRiver had a heap of trouble straight out of the box. It gave a whole bunch of errors like "USB device not recognized", "USB Device cannot start", ... etc. It turns out that many people on forums have experienced the same problems. I really wasn't happy because I liked the device SO much and didn't want to be forced into choosing something different. So, I took it back to JB HiFi and the guy there was REALLY helpful. We exchanged it for another one and rushed home to try it out. It worked straight away! 🙂
I was a bit nervous when I opened the box of MY iRiver but I was soon smiling after I plugged it into my machine and saw it recognise and install the device straight away.
Had a brilliant week.
