Yeah its most likely your ipods battery. if it works when its getting charged but not when its not then thats not good. mine is old and the battery is losing power a lot faster than it used to and when it almost dies and then dies it makes that noise. you can get a new battery for it. you can get them on ebay for cheap. they come with the tool to open it ( i just used 2 credit cards) and instructions to replace the battery.

Ipod wont turn on


Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch. Press any button to turn on iPod. Make sure the battery is charged iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod

Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via

USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.

If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information. Reset iPod
If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost. Let the iPod battery drain
In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:
Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it. Update iPod's software
If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod. b>

Ipod will fully charge but only lasts a short time. whats wrong?


My little brother gave me his ipod shuffle for the same reason, saying the battery was dying and would only play for half an hour after a full night's charge. However, I went ahead and gave it a shot anyway and it always lasts for several hours (long enough that it's never died, so I don't know an actual time).

Anyway, it turned out to be a usb hardware problem. His old computer wasn't built to charge via usb, so the ipod would take what little it could and flop five songs later. I don't know what kind of hardware you're running, but perhaps you could try plugging it into a different computer and seeing if that chnges things?

I would also recommend looking into wall chargers, if that is the case. Otherwise the convenience factor kinda goes out the window.

My ipod shuffle wont play music


It won't play music while connected to computer, that's for sure. It only plays when it's disconnected from the wall charger and computer.

The songs could be in the wrong format
AAC is iTunes native format
Mp3 generally works
WMA is iffy - only unprotected (non-DRM) files will work
Streaming songs won't work

The new ipod nano


How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it.
Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.

Heyy


for hayzlbe: connect it to its AC charger when you're connecting to a computer. n make sure you have an USB 2 port

for Teeen: if you have an hard drive ipod, just give it a shake/shock on your palm. you might get lucky n it might start working again. cuz it worked for me once after i dropped it on the hard cement floor from 2 meters height.

1. Have you tried charging your Ipod from another source other than the computer? Maybe a car charger for an Ipod or a kind that can be plugged into the wall. Ipod chargers are very inexpensive.
2. If that doesn't work try rebooting your Ipod with your Ipod program you were given to manage your Ipod.

3. Make sure that when downloading songs that they are Ipod compatible, meaning that they are mp3 ready. Before downloading a song you should be able to see the credentials the song has for downloading. Most of the time if the format cannot be changed to being mp3 ready, most likely the song won't convert to your ipod.
