i picked up this gorgeous toshiba today. i mean almost unblemished and looks very unused,but there had to be a but with this one i mean it wasnt boxed and almost every walkman i have gotten here unboxed has had problems.

it wont power up at all. this has a battery pack that hold a aa battery and then connects to two tiny brass pins. i suspect it must run on the adapter but do you think i can find a 1.5 volt adapter in the house anywhere. nope nadda nyet.
anyways heres a couple of pics of it . like i said it is gorgeous but i dont know why it wont turn on. it seems to be pretty nicely made and i am betting that it most likely sounds superb.

Recently my Toshiba Satelite which i have had about 3 years started giving trouble. as per usual i just put it down to an almost full (40gig) hard drive and wear and tear and the fact it hasnt had proper virus protection in god knows how long. about 30gigs of music. it was basically used for applying for jobs and a giant mp3. of course lots of pr0n too!

then on friday morning it finally stopped charging. Brought it to PC world where they told me i needed a universal charger that cost 100 and no i couldnt test try it in the shop. then i went to soundstore where a lovely foreign guy went out of his way and opened up products to try and charge it for me but alas the internal bit is shot to shite. Bummer. he said hed charge my battery then and there if he had a similar display model but he didnt.

so now i have this beautiful piece of machinery.

but my life exists on the toshiba and all my music. eventhough i bought it in PC world for 650 i dont want to go back to them bazzers for data transfer. i think i will try ebay for charger things and what not before i give up on it totally! its very sad. i wish i had backed up my hardrive onto the external one with four times the memory like i was told to since christmas.

so its all gone for the moment.

i dont really know what the point of this thread is. i just felt like venting.

and worse any of the people that may have been able to help me before well im not in touch with them anymore. so its double bummer.
