Just this morning I was playing Plants vs. Zombies - and was winning - but now I can't seem to open ANY app on my iPod. Right around the lunch hour I tried to play Warpgate and the loading screen appeared, then closed. When I press the sleep/wake button, my iPod takes 5 seconds to respond. When I slide to unlock, it takes just as long with the slider stuck at the right side. WHAT HAPPENED? I have been noticing my screen flashing blue recently, but I think this is an alert from Intelliscreen. Respringing has had no effect, same with Safe Mode. I am reluctant to restart my iPod in the event it never boots again. Downloading an app from the app store has not resolved the issue. ------------------double post merged------------------OKAY PANIC TIME! When I plugged in my iPod, the mouse turned off and Windows 7 froze. A moment later the "Installing device driver software..." for an "UnknownPrinter" (without the space in between the words). iTunes opened up (I told it not to when I plug in my iPod) and said it "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone "" because an error occurred during reading from the device". WHAT HAPPENED??? (I seem to be having a bad day...) While the driver was installing, the battery icon changed from charging to normal, and back to charging. I'm really concerned for my device that is 2 weeks out-of-warranty.
