My Mp3 fell in **** since I was listening to it in the toilet. What do I do??

First, clean that bad boy with disinfectant! Do not attempt to turn it back on or charge it! Dry the outside with paper towels or regular towels. Lightly spray it with Lysol according to the label. You will need to make sure that all the liquid is dried from the inside of the unit before you attempt to power it back up. If you don't you risk shorting the player out (if it hasn't already). If you are daring you can try to use a hair dryer to gently heat up the player. Do not leave the hair dryer on high on in one spot too long as you may actually begin to melt the case or worse, de-solderer connections inside the unit. After you are sure the inside is dry, I still would recommend you wait another 24 hours before attempting to power the unit back up. If you didn't short out the board and the battery the moment it plooped with the poop, it should power up just fine.

I dropped my ipod touch 1st generation and now it won't turn on. Ive tried restoring it in I tunes but it wont restore, i have seen a faint apple logo in the middle of the touch screen but thats it! - help

Your fu..ed cause these ipod touches are fragile and don't like falling and crashing to the ground.  I would suggest you purchase an In Case cover next time.
Chalk this thing up as a loss since it is out of warranty and buy you a 2nd Gen or 3rd Gen ipod touch.
If your a cheap bastard, then you can pay someone to crack this thing open and fix it for you, but the time involved might prove costly compared to getting a new unit.  Were such a throw away society now a days.

Cant download music

The songs need to be formatted for a sansa. Use Windows Media Player 11. Don't use Rhapsody, too many problems.
Load a CD into your computer, on the Toolbar of WMP11 click rip, After all songs are ripped, hook up your Sansa to the computer via USB cable, Click Sync. WMP11 will not only sync the sansa it will sync the micro card also. You have your choice where you want to put the music. Drag and drop the music in the box to the left where you synced your sansa and at the bottom of the box click Sync. All music will be synced to your sansa or card which ever one you chose. Understand, when the sansa starts up, the card syncs with the sansa, you don't have to do anything. Try this and let me know how it works.

I guess there is only one solution for it: is to take it to a suplier and try to record what it has in memory to another unit (CD, DVD or HDD). Maybe cheaper concerning to a screen change. Anyway, ask them how much is both cases (screen change or data saving), because your actual screen is given as finished with that fall.

The main point is to act quickly, not to give the chemicals time to react. The longer you leave it before you did all you could, the more time you gave corrusion and other such reactions to take place. in any case of dropping into liquid follow these steps: Remove the battery immediately; rinse in distilled water. Why? Distilled water isn't ionised and has a high breakdown dielectric; ordinary tap water is ionised and conductive. leave it in your airing cupboard for a week to dry (if there's any sign of damp anywhere, just put it back in the cupboard for another week). Reattach battery. If it doesn't appear to malfunction (bear in mind the battery may be flat), try putting it on the charger. If it appears to charge (and holds the charge), and still works, you've probably got away with it. If dropped into a soft or sweet drink rinse more thoroughly in distilled water before drying. Carbonated, sugared drinks and hot, sweet coffee are the worst. You may be lucky if it survives. If the liquid is greasy (e.g. coffee with cream, soup etc.) You can use a mix of iso-propyl alcohol and water. IT types use it to clean computers. The water dissolves all the water soluble sugar etc. and the IPA dissolves the grease. A word of advice for the future: leather cases (the ones with leather, not elastic, sides) are your friend. They can protect from splashes and even brief immersion. Good luck
