my roomate put it in rice and told me about it 24 hours later. I shook it and I couldnt hear any water and it seemed to be completely dry.  I tried plugging

it in to my computer to sync, itunes did recognize my nano but it read an error and I noticed that all of my audio files turned into "other".  My back light is also flickering.  I unplugged it quickly and put it back in the rice.  I feel like my nano has a good chance since the battery was completely dead but Im not sure how I should approach the situation when I plug it in a couple days (should I wait more?)  So basically what does it mean when my backlight is flickering and why did my audio files turn to other? The error message said something like "cannot copy because file already exists".
