    I have a 3generation 15 gig ipod that is also stuck on the apple logo screen. When I plug it into the computer, it says USB device unrecognized. Further searching revealed that I have no drivers for this device but when I tried to update drivers, it said that windows already has the best driver. I have tried soft and hard resets and using ipod updater but as soon as I conect it, updater says "ipod service error" and shuts down.

    What do I do?

Ipod touch will not switch on fully charged left on docking staton all day swiched off with docking station

how many times have you charged it
Ipod batteries have a lifespan so they can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing

if it will turn on with a charger either your battery is completely dead or the battery connections are loose or faulty

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug

To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

I am thinking of getting and Ipod touch 3G. I have JBL on stage micro Speakers. I've charged a Ipod touch 2G, but I want a 3G! Please Help!

When the OnStage speakers first came out, the charger was not compatible with 3g iPods or iPhones. Newer speakers have an upgraded charger and will charge all current iPods/iPhones (up to and including iPhone 3Gs)

Bad news is that there's no way to upgrade an old OnStage.

You can test yours by trying an iPhone 3G (if you have a friend with one, for example) to see if you have the old or the new charging circuit.

do you use it often??

I had bought a dock for my green ipod mini, and my ipod would be fully charged, and i would use it, and then 5 min. later, the ipod would die.. I figured out that I wasn't using it enough, and it was getting 'over-charged' (as i would put it)

My Jensen ipod docking system wont charge my i touch

The older ipods charge using 12v, the newer ones (including the Touch 2nd gen) use 5v. So a lot of docks that will charge a nano will not charge a new Touch. If a dock says it will work with the iPhone then it will work with the newer iPod Touch (2nd gen).
If you have an old dock and want to charge a new Touch (sounds like the case here) then you can get an adapter. Scosche makes one just for this.
