i don't know if its just me or what, i tried shaking it short and rapidly as hard as i could too but i just can't get it to work. i may be screwed, oh well thanks for the help maybe ill visit a genius bar at a mac store near my place
lol, i finally figured out what i was doing wrong by going to youtube. leave it to me to try to do it the hard way and shake it from the home menu expecting music to pop up. thanks for your help everyone!
