Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
I have an iPod Video that's three years old and the power port to which I plug in my USB chord on the ipod seems to have gone south. I can use my car charger/FM transmitter to charge the iPod, but not to play music with. Otherwise, my USB chord doesn't even bring up the DO NOT DISCONNECT screen let alone cause the computer to recognize the ipod, and any iPod speakers that play via the power port on the iPod won't charge the iPod or play any sound. I've tried a new USB chord, I've tried different USB ports, different computers, rebooting the iPod, super rebooting (holding down the center button and Menu button for two reset cycles, as recommended by an apple employee), everything short of buying a new iPod... which I'm really trying to avoid. Anyone have any ideas? I'm out of ideas.
Have you already attempted to force the iPod into disc mode before connecting the iPod to your computer? If not I would recommend doing now. If you can get the iPod to connect to your computer at this point you will want to restore it using the latest version of iTunes.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Connect the iPod shuffle USB cable connector into a high-power USB port on your computer.
Note: To charge an iPod shuffle battery, connect the device to a high-power USB port.
Please be aware that USB keyboards and non-powered USB hubs generally do not have high-power USB ports.
If you connect to a low or non-powered port, iPod shuffle will not charge.
The computer must be turned on and set to not go to sleep.
Plug the other end of the iPod shuffle USB Cable into the headphone port on the iPod shuffle.
Verify the iPod shuffle is connected securely.
Once the iPod shuffle is plugged in, it will take about 2 hours to charge the battery to 80% capacity and about 3 hours to charge it to 100%.

hope this helps
