As Adam Savage likes to put it.
My laptop, out of nowhere, just gave me a “USB device not recognized” error message. So I started unplugging and re-plugging things, fiddling with settings…
Then I noticed something. I had my iPod USB cable plugged in to the laptop, but without the iPod connected to the other end. I had moved that end out of the way on my desk (it’s always getting in the way of my mouse). Turns out it was now, for some reason, located in my cup of coffee.
I don’t know if that actually caused the error, or if it was just some weird coincidence. But anyway, I dried it off, and it’s all fine now.
Got any “well, there’s your problem” moments to share?
