    My ipod is having the same problem. It is apparently charging, but not showing the charging icon. I get the icon of the USB connection wire that states "Connected - Eject before disconnecting." It is showing this even though the ipod is not fully charged. It's worked in the past. My son let it fully discharge. Could that have something to do with it? We are running the most current software and we have Vista as our operating system.

Since it has been sitting for so long, try doing this: Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge just enough so that it can sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

How Do I fix My I Pod Which Is Disabled


First make sure the battery has some charge by using a wall plugin. Then try resetting it by holding down the power button and home/middle button at the same time until it turns off. It should automatically start back up again.

My ipod wont stay charged


This may not be the answer you are looking for but your I pod might not be fully charged, meaning that you are not plugging it in the computer/docking system long enough.( it takes much longer than 15 minutes to charge the battery. So you might want to plug it in/dock it over night) Or you may be playing a game that uses a lot of MB/GB so it kills the battery. And make sure that you press the play/pause button down for at least five seconds before switching the little switch at the top of your I pod. If you don't press the play/pause button for five seconds and just switch the switch at the top a little lock will appear on the left corner meaning you need to hold the play/pause button down for five seconds then the i pod screen goes black at that time flick the switch at the top off. -hope it helps owner of i pod nano and I pod touch.

I-pod shuffle got wet and now wont switch on or charge


If ever you get any electrics wet,turn it off immediately and don't turn it back on. Try your best to take it apart as much as possible, putting the screws in a safe place like a zip lock or sealy bag, and taping them to the item so they don't end up in a safe place that you can never remember. Put all of the bits layed out on something like a towel in a dry, warm place. Airing cupboard is a good one. Leave them alone for at least a week. If when you come back to it there's any evidence of water at all, leave it for longer. When it's bone dry, put it back together with your fingers crossed. I've managed to do this a number of times and have saved 3 laptops, 2 iPods, a desktop pc, many remotes, 2 diskmans...the list goes on.

If you've got it wet and you try to turn it on when there's any moisture inside, you're very likely to short something normally rendering your item useless. Some parts may still work, such as LED's etc butthat's just an area that probably didn't get wet. If when you open the item there's any smell of electrical burning, or black residue then there's been a short.

Good Luck.

UHG!


your computer has its own personal i-tunes for your i-pod and all your music is saved to that computer so if you plug your i-pod into someone elses computer it will eighther sync all thier music to your i-pod or it will erase all the music on your i-pod they dont have on thier computer...my sujjestion is to buy a plug in to the wall charger for your i-pod if your barely home to charge it. that way you keep your music yet charge your i-pod to.
