Help needed with a misbehaving ipod!!

GRRRRRRR!!! Got a lovely shiny ipod for xams, well pleased – Not so much anymore! I have the installation disc and it works fine, until the point where it asks me to plug the ipod in, then nothing, absoloutely NOTHING!!!

Does anyone know why my computer wont recognise it? When I plug it in it says its charging, until I unplug it then the battery is dead as a doornail!! What pisses me off more is the fact that, plug it into El's computer and it works straight away – buggered if I can understand computers, just want to throw the damn thing out of the window right now, waste of 8 hours of my life trying to sort it out!!

  1. 1. Can you turn the iPod on when it’s not connected to power? Even if there’s no music on it you should still be able to do that and get to the games, settings menu, etc. If so, go to 5. If not, read on.

    2. Try resetting your iPod (instructions here) Did that work? If so, go to 5. If not, read on.

    3. Plug it into a friend’s computer on which it does work, and try following the 5 R’s (documentation here). Specifically, if you’ve got to this point you’re looking at step 5; using the iPod Updater to restore your iPod. Read on.

    4. If your iPod still doesn’t turn on, follow the next few steps anyway, but you might have to consider contacting Apple now.

    5. Try plugging it into your comp and see if it works now. If it doesn’t, try uninstalling the iPod software and iTunes, then reinstalling iTunes (but NOT the iPod software) and go from there. Hopefully this should be the end of it, and your iPod should now work properly on your comp. If it does, celebrate and put some music on it. If not… post back and see if anyone can come up with something better!
